5.0 out of 5 stars Great...!, 8 Dec 2013
Superb sound and vision (Blu Ray). Great performance - much better than I'd feared. Yes, Ozzy's not as good as in the past, but nonetheless a very enjoyable watching experience overall. If you're a Black Sabbath fan, then I think you'll be very pleased. Don't hesitate any more.

Absolutely superb! I'm no expert, and cannot really comment about the opinions of other, more 'purist', reviewers, but this was great TV. The best programme on TV this Christmas! Gripping.

It's been a while since I've felt so positive about a drama on TV, and intend to buy on DVD. Great production and acting. Highly recommended!

A simpler production would have been better, to get more of a raw 'feel', and to let the guitar reign. For example, there are some tracks where he's in the 'zone' but is cut short, whereas an extended solo… Read more
