'Allo 'Allo! Series 6 & 7 [DVD] [1989] <b>DVD</b> ~ Gorden Kaye

I've been waiting eagerly for this release and it certainly does not disappoint. The plots seem to get more and more elaborate as Rene desperately tries to live a peaceful life in occupied France (not easy when he's the "hero of the resistance" and is trying to have an affair with both his waitresses - without his wife knowing!)

In this series we get to meet Officer Crabtree's potential love interest (a fellow agent with a very dodgy French accent).

Return To Treasure Island - Complete [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Brian Blessed

John Silver's Return to Treasure Island is a superb drama series that I've grown up with.

I've been eagerly waiting for this to make the transition to DVD and now that I've got my hands on a copy I'm certainly not disappointed. For me, Brian Blessed's performance as Long John Silver is an acting masterpiece.

The picture quality of the DVD transfer is really the only flaw with this set. There has not been any attempt to enhance it, which when you consider that some "enhanced DVDs" can have scenes edited (and in some cases ruined due to fiddling) is probably not a bad thing.

All in all, a piece of classic period drama certainly worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing, excellent game, 27 April 2008
As a fan of the original Tomb Raider I was really keen to play TR: Anniversary, and I must say have not been disappointed. The visuals and scale of the levels in Anniversary is really impressive, and the update is worthy of the original.

It brings back warm nostalgia for the original game (which I thought at the time was stunning) whilst offering some new elements to add more depth.

I would certainly recommend this game to other fans of the Tomb Raider series.
