4.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever..., 11 July 2007
Zeitgiest has come in for some fairly hefty criticism from certain quarters, but much of it is unfair. The new look Smashing Pumpkins may be missing James Iha and Darcy Wretzky, but the fact remains (with respect to the distinctive guitar work of the former) that it was always Corgan and Chamberlin who were the key members of the band.

I've reached the ripe old age of 25 years old, but since discovering a minute ago that every episode of the brilliant Maid Marion and Her Merry Men is finally available on DVD, I'm as excited as a small child on Christmas Eve.

Having taped virtually every episode back in the day and watched them to the point of the tapes wearing out, I thought they would be lost forever, but thankfully whoever owned the rights has seen sense.

This may be a children's programme, but there is much in it to entertain adults. Tony Robinson's humour, as has been mentioned elsewhere, has more than a hint of Blackadder about it (you'll find yourself laughing out loud frequently); the numerous… Read more
