In My Own Words:
In the time that remains, my aim is to read and to view as much as I can - indebted to fellow reviewers who give detailed reasons for their assessments. Thanks to them, I have gone well outside my usual range, discovering some very real gems.

Box sets of TV drama. The impact is far greater with a whole season seen over a few evenings - minus on-screen logos, adverts, squashed credits, spoilers, etc. Some of the bonuses are excellent. Great bargains abound!

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Los Angeles reels. A killer creates havoc, carnage his aim as he pursues his brilliantly organized but highly twisted agenda. What picture can be compiled about him? Two esteemed profilers differ. He a "spree" or a "serial", perhaps a "hybrid"? Each species of killer has different characteristics, they important to identify if to bring him down. Faulty analysis can have disastrous consequences.

Welcome here a gripping murder mystery, a moving love story too. Ex-Marine, now FBI Agent, Jake Mottram proves an ultra-rugged hero, the very man to nail this monster. Outwardly at least, nothing seems to unsettle him - except news his lover, profiler Angie Holmes, is pregnant. He… Read more

Soon she will have an unexpected ally - chief investigative reporter Mikael Blomkrist on the controversial hard-hitting Millennium magazine.

I knew nothing of the three novels, nor the three films, so can only comment on what is here: virtually nine hours comprising extended versions of the films, divided into six feature-length television episodes.

The result is an awesome trilogy, gripping throughout, especially if episodes are seen in quick succession, which makes everything so much… Read more

A shortage of True Blood has caused vampires to seek the real kind. Enough is enough! Seeking re-election, Louisiana's Governor decrees the closing down of all vamp businesses and a strict curfew at night (the only time vampires had been able to get out and about). Secretly he has authorised an internment centre, with experiments on vampires to determine how best to get rid of them. Giving particular pleasure to those in charge is the sight of vampires exposed to sun, they blazing most dramatically.

Bill is back, his powers increased. His top aim now is to save vampires from extinction. As ever, fans may look forward to much gore, sex and a high body count.
