1.0 out of 5 stars WON:T WORK ON FOUR DVD WRITERS!, 8 Nov. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well i get through quite a lot DVD-R's, this is the first discs that won't write on any of drives. Tried on both of my desktop drives, along with a recently purchased Sony external drive. Also tried on laptop none of them will work. Over the years i have had discs were they won't work on one of the drives but this is the first time they haven't worked on all. This means I have got to go through downloading firmware, or just get some decent disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for any kitchen!, 31 Oct. 2008
Several years ago I saw this on QVC, by the time i got my order in they had sold out. A couple of years later running a search (just got into internet shopping) I discovered amazon. Needless to say I ordered one. If you enjoy creamy porridge in the winter mornings, scrambeled egg, no lumps sauces (both homemade and packet), or anything that needs stirring then this is for you.

Last Christmas this made things so easy just as everything is about to finish set your sauce off and while you dishing up the sauce looks after it's self. Also rinse with hot water and you can use to make brandy/rum sauce, it never burns and also you can set it to keep sauces warm until you are ready with no skin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brillant TV, shame no region 2, 5 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was long over due, but better late than never. The complete series over 13 discs. There are extras which are worth watching, including a live show on the comedy central stage. Also it well presented package wise. The gripe I have is I had already purchased the first two season's and felt that i was having to buy them again, but I am happy i did, if only to see the lost episodes. The next thing i'm hopeing for is if more season's could be made, this was an excellant program. Just also wanted to also let you know that on the Dr Katz web site there short radio programs that well worth a listen!

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is this called SPOOKS???, 5 Sept. 2008
Not long before it first aired I heard about CODE 9, but like many thought it was going to be a kids TV thing. When I discovered it was showing after the watershed I was looking forward to seeing it. Having faith in SPOOKS I was under the misapprehension that this would at least be on a par with the origenal. How wrong can one be!! Tryed watching it in fact I watched 2 whole episodes and 15 mins of the third, after all it's SPOOK's. But why is it connected to spooks there are none of the high quality production. Spooks is first rate i own 5 seasons and shall shortly have the recent Spooks: Complete BBC Series 6 [2007], if this (Code 9) was given to me I wouldn't bother unwrapping it I wouldn't bother trying to sell it as I have yet to read a good review, it would go straight into the bin!

THIS IS A BBC MISTAKE, LETS HOPE THAT THEY LEARN FROM IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars On the same level of the 1948 David Lean version, 12 May 2008
This review is from: Oliver Twist [DVD] (DVD)
When this was first shown on TV I missed the first episode and only came across it half way through the second. This is truly a first rate remake, whilst the 1948 version still holds a special place in my heart right next to it is this.

If you enjoy a good story with excellent props and scenery not to mention the cream of British actors in some surprising casting; but they all come together brilliantly!

At the price that Amazon has it at I would say this is an absolute must for DVD collector or any Dickens fans! The only thing i don't understand is why it hasn't been re-shown or more haven't heard of this, the is great shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't fill via spout!!, 9 May 2008
Ordered this several days ago and it arrived (using free delivery) in 2 days :-) The only gripe i have is you cannot fill using the spout you do need to lift the lid, which opens smoothly and is easy to do.

Bosh is one of my favorite brands I have bosh dishwasher, washing/drying machines and a fridge freezer, they all have been well used and have lasted with no problems (touch wood). So when it came to selecting a new kettle and seeing this one i had to have a look.

Apart from the error in the listing regarding the spout filling i am very pleased. My previous kettle wasn't a filter kettle and now i can see the difference. there is or was a advert on TV showing the difference and it does do what they say the tea is clearer and has no scum on the top. Also for a 3kw fast boil it's quite. There is probably quieter ones on the market, although this is quite enough.

When you pour, the water goes where you want not over the work top.

The last thing i would like to comment on is the look of the kettle, my kitchen is stainless steel but stainless steel kettles need to be wiped and cleaned regularly so i decided to go for plastic, the kettle looks the part and as the spout doesn't dribble there is no need to keep wiping the outside.

Whilst i have only had this for a short while I am pleased and am confident that others will be too..

5.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't boil an egg without it!!!, 4 May 2008
This perfect, when i purchased this I was sceptical about the results, but i eventually got one just to see if is a good as people say, IT IS!

For me the yolk should be runny and the white solid, after a few uses i now get a perfect egg every time. Also when it comes to hard boiled eggs it allows me to have hard boiled eggs without them turning to bullets. Whats more it doesn't matter if you cook one or a dozen eggs, although six is the most I've cooked at once, you still get the same results!

Last Christmas many of friends and family got one of these there gifts, some laughed others didn't look that impressed, after when i saw people i got there accounts of perfect eggs and told that some are having a boiled eggs for breakfeast because now they know that it will be cooked to perfection.

If you know some one setting up home or going away to university i would say give them one of these, after all a properly boiled egg is a quick economic meal.

When i go camping i used to take it with me, now i don't have too; I brought another that i leave with my camping gear

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant television!, 2 Sept. 2007
When this was ordered I was not to sure if i can remember the program, however with Amazon's great prices I decided to give it a chance, and it paid off!!

After watching the first episode i started to remember it from my childhood. It has a strong cast, and despite the restrictions of the hall manage to come up with some good story lines. The special effects are nothing compared to today but this was made over thirty years ago.

When it was shown on TV it was on the Sunday afternoon at about 4-15 and the later series was moved to 5pm. To my knowledge the show has not (or rarely) been repeated, which is a shame. Despite this being a children's show the cast and quality actors both guest and regular make it watchable by all. Arthur English & Freddie Jones give a solid performance and look as though they enjoyed making the series. If only they could produce shows of this calibre now it make paying that licence fee that bit easier.

My last words are BUY THIS YOU WON@T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Animated Version, 11 Aug. 2007
This review is from: Moomin: Moomin Mania [DVD] (DVD)
This is the Japanese animated version. It contains several of the episodes but not the whole series. It's good to have until they do realise the full collection. If it was shown on children's TV now it would still appeal to the younger viewers as well as the young at heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars You either love it or hate it!!, 22 Jan. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is defiantly from the early days, and is often over looked. It has some classic lines in it and it's graced by some great actors and guest stars. For those who aren't in the know, there are four women of very different back grounds sharing an apartment and chaos regions supreme. Jenifer Saunders (Jennifer Marsh) is on top form as ever and Dawn French (Amanda Ripley) plays her part well and provides much of the energy.

Amanda Ripley has a little problem. She's managed to find herself a flat, but there's just not as much money in being a ultra-feminist protester as there used to be. So, she's had to open up her new apartment to several sub-lets. They include Shelley DuPont , Jennifer Marsh and Candice Valentine . DuPont is an unnervingly annoying American actress who just doesn't have a clue about her craft. Marsh is a rather slow childhood friend of Ripley's and she has been taken in almost as a charity rather than out of financial need. Valentine is just a flirt who just needs a place to lay her head when its not on some strange man's pillow (needless to say this goes over well with the feminist views held by Ripley). Together they get themselves into a whole mess of trouble.

If you are reading this chances are you'll know the series (short as it was), it's not Vicar of Dibley, Ab.Fab, but worth a look! This has been long awaited and myself have ran periodic searches for these DVD's and I for one am very pleased to finally own them (especially at Amazon's prices!!!!
