5.0 out of 5 stars No pain, much gain., 4 Mar. 2015
Easy to use, but you need confidence with your body, a bit of determination and self-love. Very simply and clean, two plastic "tampons", to be filled with several microweights (no electricity): insertion is rapid and workout very efficient. The time requested is little (a quarter of hour more or less), but in the end strain is perceptible, muscle tone very improved and thus no more accidental drops of urine during a sneeze or an effort... Also, in a multiparous middle aged woman, it helps to maintain a good pelvic tone. You don't open bottles as some young professionals do, but your partner notices the difference.

3.0 out of 5 stars And then the axe fell., 23 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Five stars for some historical accuracy (far better than competitors'), and some great acting (even if Cesare Borgia in the end becomes a dull character). One star because the end is brutally - brutally - truncated. Did money end at last, and screenplay was taken by surprise? The impression is awful, a big four letter word erupts when the final dvd slids out. This is not the way to leave a good memory. On the whole, the serie has been well done. It would have deserved a better end.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recommend it for all ladies who had multiple deliveries and are "not so young" anymore. It's NOT a sex toy, does not give "wonderful sensations" when used, needs a bit of self awareness and discipline, but the results in training back the pelvic musculature are very good (and the partner agrees). Easy to clean and nicely packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally worth it, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Essential packaging, but perfect material. This TV show is masterfully done and acted, and I'm most happy to find that the spirit of Conan Doyle is perfectly maintained. Characters have been nicely portraited; 3rd series show some plot weakness, but in the whole is a splendid British story. The soundtrack is lovely (to the point that I purchased the score to play it).


Anno Dracula - Dracula Cha Cha Cha
Anno Dracula - Dracula Cha Cha Cha
by Kim Newman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.39

2.0 out of 5 stars Newman's style, without thrill., 4 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To create his usual alternative universe, Newman is eager to devour and digest any character, real or fictionary, trying desperately to insert all these in a story with his old staff (Beauregard, Genevieve, Kate, Penelope and of course Dracula), and failing.
The story is rather weak against a background that seems to interest the writer more than the plot. Even the characters are rather flat: they are beautiful, but they don't to much. They seem oddly detached from the story that never takes off. The conclusion is banal and sort of "forced". Nothing compared to previous books.
Also, I'm sorry but as an Italian (and the book is heavily centered on my country) I notice too much mistakes in my language, and the descriptions of Rome during Bella Vita's time are rather naive and postcardlike, despite a huge effort in documentation. Surely this has added to my disappointment.
There's another novel in this book: not bad, but didn't move me a bit. In conclusion, it seems that Newman forgot how to properly mix the parts of a story. He's happy with his alternative universe, and that's all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good and coherent pace, 30 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... a very good show, quite entertaining, even if it takes a frank turn into pure fiction and discards too much historical details (as I am Italian, I notice all flips and they are piling up alarmingly, some are really excessive). Quite a good acting by most of the characters, and beautiful costumes, that support the poverty of scenography (very scant as a representation of Italian Rinascimento). I look forward to season 3.

2.0 out of 5 stars Minimalist., 5 May 2009
Marco Polo is a masterwork, expecially for its historical reconstruction, that is almost flawless. Good actors, great direction and Morricone's soundrack create a great show.
Unfortunately, this is nothing more tran the trasposition in dvd of A PART of the original tape (that is 8 hours long). There are many cuts to shorten the movie, at the expense of its continuity. Since no effort has been made to restaurate it, the quality is very poor, both in image and sound. Last but not least: there are no subtitle in English, just in Dutch.
I'm disappointed to have found all these things only when I had the dvd in my hands. Even if I'd buy a partial show (since this is a must in historical play), I'd prefer to know this in advance.
Anyway, the seller's service has been very good in dispatching and post-sale cares.
