Agatha Christie's Poirot - Complete Series 1-11 [DVD]
Agatha Christie's Poirot - Complete Series 1-11 [DVD]
Dvd ~ David Suchet

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 13 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This mistery series is by far one of the best I have ever viewed, along with Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett. David Suchet performs beautifully in this series, but his secondary actors are equally great in portraying the characters in very convincing manner. The sets and atmosphere of the time are extremely well captured, and criminal suspense is conveyed with the minimum necessary dose of violence.
The use of english language and manners are an educational example.
Great familu viewing if your kids are over 13.

5.0 out of 5 stars clean and decorative, 13 Feb. 2011
This bin is made of a solid one piece bucket with a lid that contains odour trapping material. The stainless steel finish renders a good, clean decorative look that conceals what it really is. On the other hand, the one piece bucket with rounded edges makes it easy to clean, leaving no kinks in which microbes or dirt could be lodged.
The product is, therefore, very well designed, and can occupy a place in the kitchen, along with cooking utensils, pots and spice jars, without becoming an eyesore or a source of contamination.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for small children, 27 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD provides the opportunity for children over 5 and older children with special needs to learn songs and associate the sung lyrics with text that can be read. This old formula is great if your child is learning to read, or has difficulties in becoming interested in reading. First, they can memorize the songs by hearing them, and then associate them to the words appearing on the screen.
Sometimes the tempo of the songs is a little fast for small kids, but they end up catching up with it with some dedication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and well put together, 27 Aug. 2010
This book shows most of the living creatures one may find in a pond. The photographs are of good quality, and the descriptions are very accurate.
Perhaps not suitable for small children, but most enthusiasts over 12 should be able to use it successfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Western Masteroiece, 3 Jan. 2010
This movie is a classic in the western genre, depicting the contradiction between law and order and the use of brute force in the american west. The story raises thoughts on the issue in any situation, however, and is instructive for children above 12 years of age.
The cast of actors is perfect for the script, and the direction is a classic in movie making.
Thoroughly enjoyable and instructive .

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping quality, 3 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Sherlock Holmes complete collection has received wide acclaim for decades. But for those who are not familiar with this series, it is not only dramatised and performed to perfection, but the chosen settings bring the viewer back to XIX century England. I enjoyed it better tan many modern crime investigation take-off's now wiewed on TV. It is also refreshing to find that suspense is not necessarily linked with violence.
For those who appreciate the english language, or are in the process of learning it, it is a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars Innovative and provocative series with a daunting conclusion, 14 Oct. 2001
The Space series is an extremely innovative and suggestive presentation of the most important questions and some answers which now arise to humans about the universe.
The state of the art technique used surrenders itself more to science fiction than to the true spirit of search invoked by researchers. This dramatisation is further angled towards a gloomy and hopeless end to humanity. Something that is neither here nor there to the viewer, since it will probably not affect him or her in his or her lifetime.
Nevertheless, the relentless search of scientists is well portrayed, and this provides perhaps the most positive and cheerful spirit to this series.
I highly recommend it,especially over a good drink.
