Le Voyage Dans la Lune
Le Voyage Dans la Lune
Price: £4.38

2.0 out of 5 stars For completists only, 7 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Le Voyage Dans la Lune (Audio CD)
For completists only, or with the original movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Betas - 2nd place to alpha Silicon Valley, 27 May 2016

This review is from: Betas - Season 1 (Amazon Video)
Silicon Valley is funnier, better made and had more coherent characters. If I had seen Betas first I might have scored it higher and continued watching after 3 episodes.

Only disappointment is lack of ITV Encore.


Puzzle-a-Day (Humour)
Puzzle-a-Day (Humour)

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 23 Feb. 2016
This review is from: Puzzle-a-Day (Humour) (Paperback)
A terrible collection of puzzles. The first puzzle after you escape January is to keep track of which day of the year you are on as the puzzles are only numbered and not dated. The small upside is that it shouldn't matter which year, or even which month, you start. As I started these puzzles on 1st January 2016, a leap year, this collection is one short!

A number of the puzzles have mistakes, including missing digits in some of the number puzzles, and typos in the word puzzles. For example cnidophobia is not the fear of string. Some of the number puzzles have more than one solution.

The answers to every puzzle are printed upside down on the same page as the corresponding puzzle, which means it is very easy to see the solution accidentally, spoiling the fun.

Voodoo Ray is the stand out track, while listening to the whole album it all gets a bit repetitive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Barely works - don't bother, 20 Jan. 2016

This review is from: YouTube (App)
This app on the Fire TV Stick barely works. You can play videos, but the longer the app is open the more laggy the interface, frequent pausing (to rebuffer?), dropped frames, broken audio, lip-sync starts to drift, the list goes on. The same videos play just fine on other devices.

Casting doesn't work for me either - when I tap the cast button on my phone it appears to cause the app on the Fire TV Stick to crash and load again.

4.0 out of 5 stars My wood burning stove is nicely black again instead of orange rust, 17 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This stove paint is very liquid and high on volatiles, so be sure to catch drips and ventilate well. My wood burning stove is nicely black again instead of orange rust. 150mls isn't a lot, but it goes a long way for the job, and you'll probably get two coats out of one tin.

1.0 out of 5 stars £0.00 is still too high a price to pay for this, 17 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Best Jokes 2014 (Kindle Edition)
Even the free Kindle sample to this zero priced book has no jokes, just lots of naked flesh advertising some other junk.


Braun MobileShave M-90 Men's Portable Electric Foil Shaver Travel Battery Razor
Braun MobileShave M-90 Men's Portable Electric Foil Shaver Travel Battery Razor
Price: £17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely portable, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The extremely portable Braun shaver is happy to run on rechargeable AA batteries as well as traditional AA batteries. It gives a close enough shave and is easy to clean under a tap.

This shaver is also usually cheaper than replacement foils for more expensive models and brands, and I suspect replacement parts for this one are not readily available - you have to buy a new one. I easily get 5+ years before the foil starts breaking down.
