1.0 out of 5 stars Grey decking?, 24 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why is it grey and not at all oily? I just wanted an oil but this looks more like stain.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy one of these!, 5 Aug. 2013
Toshiba 19DL502B2 - 19" High Definition LED TV with built-in DVD Player (New for 2013)We bought a Toshiba 'all-in' DVD and telly for our house in France. It looked great when it worked but it wasn't long before the DVD started freezing on both recorded discs and bought ones. After a short time - conveniently post-guarantee - the screen stopped working altogether and we couldn't play either discs or tapes. I thought Toshiba was supposed to be a pretty good outfit but this product is rubbish. It takes me back to '60s when our old Ferguson kept ballsing up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Out from the ghetto, 31 July 2005
A group of British Asian women head off for a day trip to Blackpool. Also on board, however, is a classic (some might argue cliched) thali of quintessentially British urban angst; the unwanted pregnancy of an aspiring medical student through to the prodigal wife and child holed up in the women's rescue centre. The various womens' stories are developed against the background of perpetual motion and flashy gaudiness of Blackpool. It is a Blackpool, however, not only embodying British cultural tackiness (I happen to love the place), it is also reminiscent of both Bollywood and some of the more colourful aspects of Hindu culture and, in this way, the women never look out of place. Ultimately, however, the film tries to do too much. It attempts to express the Asian experience in Britain - done much more successfully by Gurinda Chadha in the more recent 'Bend it like Beckham'. But it also tries take on the much more complex subjects of inter-minority racism (the father of the unwanted child is black), as well as generational conflicts and male on female violence. Like Blackpool itself, there is just too much going on here and the plot/s is/are finally forced to a series of unsatisfactory resolutions. Chadha, I think has so many things to say but tries to say them all in this one film. Where it is most successful, however, is in rescuing British Asianhood (and particularly female Asianhood) from the humourless and somewhat austere ghetto into which Asians and Asian culture has so often been condemned. Whatever their problems, class, generation or ethnicity, these women are first and foremost, great fun and compellingly attractive characters.
