This review is from: Lucifer - Season 1 (Amazon Video)
Oh what fun! The mystery element is a bit "daytime detective drama", nothing to write home about the Tom Ellis relishes a script for the devil that the writers are having fun with, and that enjoyment is aired by the viewer. Now they need to look at the unrated Life, for some grittier weird mystery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series is dead to me now. Series (sorry season) four is cheaply produced, poorly written and becoming a soap opera rather than a gripping drama. Series 3 wasn't much better but I put up with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a Pogues fan, I saw this story from the other side of the bouncers. Reading about what one band-member recalls chimes with what I saw on stage: brilliant concerts followed months later by awful gigs, full or argument and retribution. I love the Pogues music and I love Fearnley's lyrical style in this book. It's sad though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shiny!, 15 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Firefly: the Game (Toy)
So pleased to find this game on Amazon. Licensed products can be pretty dreadful, re-skinning a very ordinary game mechanic with some pretty pictures from a TV show. But this game is put together from scratch, and obviously by people who love Firefly. The game mechanics conjure the events of the show and it feels pretty much like a RPG, where every player is a rival captain recruiting a crew, finding work, doing the job and getting paid. There is so much randomness and player-choice available that no two games should ever be alike.

The materials are created with care and attention, and are based not just on the TV show, but also some of the visual "extended 'verse" of fan created and licensed product.
The dice (two, even though only one is required) have a little Firefly image for a six. There are four actual firefly models as player counters, and a Reaver Trans-U and a lovely Alliance Cruiser (this last is a bit wobbly on its stand).

If you are Browncoat, this is must buy.

There seem to be some problems with distribution and not many stores in the UK can get hold of it. So it's great that Amazon has copies for sale.

Watch out though, the description mentions some pre-order exclusive Big Damn Hero cards. These DO NOT come with the product. It's the basic game only (after all, this isn't a pre-order any more).

4.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to the L5R stable., 16 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been very impressed with the sheer quality of design and production for the 4th edition products, each purchase has encouraged me to buy something else. This is an expensive set, but with the Amazon discount, well worth the price. A lovely set of custom dice, three well written and well produced softback books, a couple of game prop pillow books, and a pad of character sheets all contribute to my satisfaction.

The set also includes some cards that are less useful. Designed as aide-memoirs for the main school techniques, I'm not sure how they'd be used in play. Yes, players may keep a card with them to remind they how the technique works, but they could also make a note on their character sheet. Talking of which there also some very nice expanded character books to replace character sheets, but I'm not sure how I'd decide that particular character deserved the premium version...

First world problems, eh?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the intellectual funfair rude I was expecting, 10 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Reamde (Kindle Edition)
Given some of the mind-journeys Stephenson has taken us on, this one became a (reasonably fun) running gunfight quite early on.
