Appropriate Adult [DVD] [2011]
Dvd ~ Dominic West
Price: £6.63

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the sensitive but well produced., 7 Jun. 2013

Well produced excellent cast and good acting. Good characterization and a well handled drama about a difficult subject. Lovers of good tight British drama will like this. However it is a disturbing portrayal of Fred West and his power of persuasion of those around him.

This review is from: Children Of Dune [DVD] (DVD)
Not a bad attempt at these books by Frank Herbert. A good mainly British cast made the acting above average and lifted the whole mini series into a slightly higher level. It is fairly predictable bur certainly kept my interest although not a huge fan of this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outnumbered - as far as it can go., 7 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saw a few episodes of this on TV and decided to get the whole box set as I found it so funny. Interesting to see as they all grew up and the difference is quite marked for Karen. By the end of the last series it seemed to me it had gone as far as it could and the "cuteness" and clever remarks had lost their freshness. The box set is a great way to capture what made it such a special series. The great logical responses to the adults comments and the literal understanding was hilarious and really made you think about how ambiguous some of our statements are to kids. Another great British production - cannot see how an American copy of this can come close to the clever dialogue the Brits write and the other great thing about this series is it is partially improvised - sometimes I wonder how Pete keeps a straight face at some of the things the kids say. A great series to have and one that should be watchable for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cambridge Spies well worth a look, 8 Oct. 2009

If you are a fan of cold war spy books and film - Think John Le Carre and Len Deighton and of course BBC "Spooks" this goes back to an important part of espionage history. Well acted with good characterisation and a complex plot. You need to concentrate on this so sit down with no interrruptions and you will be rewarded with a good intelligent viewing experience.
