Chuck  - Season 1-5 Complete [DVD] [2012] <b>DVD</b> ~ Zachary Levi
The first 4 series are very entertaining, however it rather runs out of steam in the 5th and the writers generate unfunny peril in an attempt to keep it going - sadly this doesn't work. I'd recommend buying the series and stopping at the end of #4 (though I doubt anyone will follow this).

1.0 out of 5 stars Severe anti-climax, 16 Jun 2014
It really saddens me to say that the final Culture book is a disappointing end to a (usually) excellent series. The plot lacks any real mystery or tension and is largely a freak-show tour of various mini-civilisations - it feels a bit like the author had some new ideas for societies and decided to dump them all into one book with a road-trip storyline stringing them together. The hard-core fanboys will probably love all the ship gossip, but for everyone else it's just prattle.
The Caltraps of Time (S.F. MASTERWORKS) by David I. Masson
2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly dated, 16 Jun 2014
This may have been ground-breaking at the time of it's release but is sadly dated nowadays. The initial story remains excellent however.
