3.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of potential., 26 Jan. 2015
Their is tremendous potential here for something truly special to be created. The story feels fresh when compared to other current shows and it is superbly acted by a very able cast. The problems arise with the very slow pacing which can easily lose the viewer before the first episode concludes. In addition to the pacing their is the issue of none of the characters really being particularly interesting, they all have their roles but I didn't feel as though I was given any reason to care about a single one of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a watch., 26 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Cocked (Amazon Instant Video)
I went into this show not expecting very much from it but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Sure there are problems with the story sailing along a little quickly without the necessary development but that may well be due to the nature of having to create a pilot that hooks enough people in for a full season to be ordered. The cast are strong and turn in universally good performances and the story itself leaves the viewer, or at least this viewer, wanting to see more from this dysfunctional gun totting tribe.

3.0 out of 5 stars it's ok, 26 Jan. 2012
the acting is solid in this show but the story just isn't very interesting. the creators were clearly hoping that a show that features Billie Piper in a lot of sexual situations would be enough for viewers as there is little else on offer here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who at its best, 26 Jan. 2012
it may seem old and somewhat poor in comparison to todays special effects filled shows but this IS the best Doctor Who ever. the story is incredibly well crafted and will have any viewer glued to the screen for its duration. the writing puts todays version of the show to shame and serves as a reminder of just how good The Doctor truely can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars consider me an Edge Head, 26 Jan. 2012
i bought this book along with a whole host of others from several other wrestlers and i must say that this is the one that stood head and shoulders above the rest as the most interesting and engaging read. many of others were obviously written by someone other than the wrestler but this one was written entirely by Edge, aside from the forward by Mick Foley, and it really shows. the whole book is carefully created to give the best insight possible into Edge's life and the wrestling business. i strongly recommend reading it and cannot wait for a follow up to this now that he has retired.

3.0 out of 5 stars not exactly exciting, 26 Jan. 2012
i am a Classical Civilisation student and so this book was a large part of the course, however it was not a part i enjoyed. the story is unbelievably boring at times and is simply one long piece of pro-Augustan propaganda.

4.0 out of 5 stars bow down to the King, 26 Jan. 2012
Triple H certainly has had a long and illustrious career and that shines through on this excellent DVD. whilst not all of his best matches are on here there is still a lot for any fan 'The Game' the sink their teeth into. a particular highlight is his hell in a cell encounter with Mick Foley which remains one of my favorite HITC matches ever. all of these contests are accompanied by insight from the man himself as he speaks honestly about what was going on at the time.

2.0 out of 5 stars simply boring, 26 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Pretty Baby [DVD] (DVD)
this film is incredibly slow paced and to make matters worse nothing really happens in it either. the acting is realtively good but none of the characters demand attention from the viewer and so staying awake throughout this film is an uphill struggle.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good film, 26 Jan. 2012
despite the comtroversy surrounding this film i decided to watch it anyway and how glad i am that i did. it was very well made and contained some brilliant acting by the entire cast especiialy from the young Dakota Fanning who turned in a very impressive performance. i would recommend this film without hesitation. the only down point is that it does suffer from a lull in the middle.

3.0 out of 5 stars great wrestling, poor production, 26 Jan. 2012
i'll start off by praising what this DVD did right. the action was all very entertaining and fast paced with a variety of superb matches. the opening which outlined the war between Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels and A.J Styles was very in depth and entertaining. once the main matches began the enjoyment dropped as there was no insight offered by the wrestler or even by Tenay as to why these matches were chosen and what their significance was, if there had have been this product would have been much more enjoyable.
