M.R. James Collection ~ The Complete Ghost Stories&hellip
19 of 24 people found the following review helpful
Finally someone had to compile the M.R. James ghost stories and the Aussies had to do it. Anyways the land of the down under did a good job and compiles all the M.R. James ghost stories for Christmas that was shown on the Beeb. The transfer is excellent as it could be. The only problem I have is this weird Aussie video box lock on their DVDs which is impossible to take out without a screwdriver or a magnet. Got so pissed off that I almost destroyed a DVD case trying to disarm them. Otherwise the set is highly recomended.
Cadfael - The Complete Collection [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Derek Jacobi

OK, I suspect that Cadfael was produced to ride of the coat tails of the movie Name of the Rose. Now saying that, Cadfael while not as gritty and dark as the movie its an excellent detective show. Derek Jacobi is a great actor, and he plays Cadfael to the hilt. The only bad thing I can say about Cadfael is the cinematography which kinda turned me off and the show should be more gritty than it is. Anyways the show is excellent.
Messiah - The Complete Series 1 - 5 Collection [DV&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Helen McCrory

OK, I have watched lots of these kinds of TV shows(Cracker, Luther, Murphy's Law, the Shield, Touching Evil etc. etc. etc.). Now while I think the plotline of Messiah is intricate and commendable, its also plodding and very convuluted. I was practically bored watching the show. If you are new to this kind of genre you could be entrhalled but I see nothing new. Great acting though.
