"Incoherent Dialogue" Graham Bull - this also applies to your review!!
Sir, you should have done us all a favour and not bothered to write a review of Deadwood - Season 1 DVD.
Your moaning on about modern TV using regional accents and actors who cannot speak clearly is a gripe best left for a conversation between yourself and your wife. It is not needed for a review of a drama series that is one of the freshest to be screened on either side of the Atlantic in many a year. You make no mention whatsoever about the acting, script, cinemtography or production. So what was the point of you writing the review in the first place?? Oh, I remember... you couldn't hear it.

The name of the taxi driver killed by a 46lb concrete block and a 65lb concrete post that Roger Waters sings about was DAVID WILKIE.

All the other reviewers have said it all really.
Approx 30mins per game - with long stages of play shown that really builds-up the memory and feeling of the game. A decent, if lack-lustre interview with Martyn Williams and a few of the others in the team / management, but there's not too much talking. Shame there was no interview with Alfie though and I would love to have heard the opinions of some international players too - what the Aussie, NZ, French, English players thought of the Welsh season. But hey - you can't have everything.
Is it worth buying - damn right it is. If you were a true follower of good rugby and you WEREN'T Welsh, this would till be worth buying, just to… Read more
