5.0 out of 5 stars Great SW fun!, 19 Mar. 2012
I loved playing this game. There is really a lot to do. And I feel like there's a lot more to be enjoyed in each level than in the previous SW Lego games. The levels are longer IMO. And in addition to some Bounty Hunter missions, you also have the space and ground assaults Clone Wars missions to complete.

There are new moves you can do, such as climbing walls with your lightsabers or throwing it at enemies.

The Hub, not the cantina this time, is fantastic to explore!

I really love the diversity of characters.

Easy to play with the keyboard.

Graphics looked gorgeous in their highest settings. However, I had to reduce those because my computer had some troubles keeping up with the highest quality of graphics.

I'm really hoping there'll be a second Clone Wars game covering seasons 3 and 4 because this one is my various of the Lego games I've played.

5.0 out of 5 stars The great first season of a cult series, 24 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Farscape is among the very best shows in television history, perhaps the best science-fiction show ever. It took risks, in just about everyway. Like in this first season where they really took the time to let the characters grow and find some common grounds. This is precisely what I like best about this season, the slow build up to the final eps and the seasons that followed and blew our minds.

Some people say that the first season is boring and recommend watching the pilot and then moving to the last few eps, usually starting again with A Human Reaction. That, I think, is missing the point of this season completely. How can Family Ties be so moving if you haven't watched the entirety of the season and don't know at what price the Moya crew bought their friendship?

I recommend Farscape to all science-fiction fans and anyone who wants to watch a truly original show.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I long hesitated before picking season 9 of SG-1 up, dreading the changes. But I never regretted doing so. I've found the opening three-parter really well done in introducing the new characters. Bringing back Vala to have a feminine presence in Carter's absence was a stroke of genius. Claudia Black is wonderful at comedy and drama both and brought freshness to the series. Cameron Mitchell, played by the extremely talented Ben Browder, brings new energy as well. In the end, this version of the team (Cameron, Daniel, Teal'c and Vala), though short-lived, was definitely great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great final season for the classic team, 24 Jan. 2012
This season isn't one of my favourites of the series, but I still like it very much as it's good SG-1 fun overall.

Episodes are as follow:
-New Order (parts 1 & 2): excellent follow-up the end of season 7
-Lockdown: interesting ep but lacks a little something to put it up there with the best in the series
-Zero Hour: a mostly funny episode dealing with O'Neill finding his mark as base commander
-Icon: a Daniel episode, not really memorable, even though I'm a Daniel fan.
-Avatar: interesting ep, but again missing a little something.
-Affinity: an episode where Teal'c try to live off base. Not really memorable.
-Covenant: interesting, but not among the best eps.
-Sacrifices: the best ep since the opening two-parter. This one deals with Teal'c family and rebel Jaffas.
-Endgame: again a good one, though not as good as the previous one.
-Gemini: the one finally explores something that happened at the end of New Order.
-Prometheus Unbound: Vala's introduction. A really fun episode.
-It's Good to Be King: the return of Maybourne, and Ancient tech. Interesting but average.
-Full Alert: interesting, but not one of the best.
-Citizen Joe: a rather painful clip show
-Reckoning (parts 1 & 2): together with the episode Threads (which would have been a part III if it weren't for the slightly different focus), these are the best episodes of the entire series in my opinion. The final payoff of 8 years of show.
-Threads: a Daniel centered ep, which explores the history of the Ancients and of Anubis.
-Moebius (parts 1 and 2): a fun time-travel story, but it does feel a bit of a letdown following the excellent quality of the three previous eps.

Note: I've "reviewed" the eps in the actual order they are meant to be seen in rather than the order from the DVDs

Star Wars Outbound Flight
Star Wars Outbound Flight
by Timothy Zahn
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A great SW novel, 24 Jan. 2012
To me, this is one of Zahn's best SW novels. I couldn't put it down, stayed up waaaaaay past my bedtime to finish it.

The only thing that I'm not really enthusiastic about is the addition of Obi-Wan and Anakin for a part of the novel. It feels as if they were put there to attract readers, but the story would have been just as great without them, perhaps even greater. Still one of my favourite SW novels and I've read well over a hundred of them.

Definitely pick this one up if you're fan of the EU. If you're not into the EU, there are other better starting points than this, depending on where your interest in SW lies.

Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars For the dialogue track, 24 Jan. 2012
There isn't much point buying this single if it weren't for the Battle of the Heroes with dialogue tracks. While it's not as good as Duel of the Fates with dialogue, it's still pretty cool. The other tracks are the Battle of the Heroes main version (available on the full soundtrack), a truncated version of the main theme and the video for the Battle of the Heroes, which can also be found on the DVD bonus added to the soundtrack.

Star Wars Trilogy Box Set [Deluxe Remastered Version]
Star Wars Trilogy Box Set [Deluxe Remastered Version]

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic soundtracks, 24 Jan. 2012
These 6 CDs (two per film) feature the complete soundtracks from the classic trilogy. Themes such as Princess Leia's Theme, The Imperial March or Yoda's Theme are also presented as separate tracks.

I regret that this edition doesn't have the excellent booklets from the special edition releases, which detailed the music and themes in a most interesting manner.

So 5 stars for the music really, but docking one as the edition could have been better.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the theatrical versions, 24 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Contrary to "The Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Two Towers", for which I feel the Extended Editions are vastly superior, the theatrical edition of "The Return of the King" is definitely worth watching as the Extended Edition for it drags a bit and the additional scenes sometimes feel odd (though I do always watch the EE...). And while it suffers a bit in terms of being an adaptation, I think this is the best of the three films.

Star Wars Trivial Pursuit Bitesize
Star Wars Trivial Pursuit Bitesize

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very challenging, 28 July 2011
This game may be well-suited for the casual Star Wars fan. The questions are too basic and simple for the more dedicated fans. I played with my brother, who is like me very into Star Wars, and this game was so easy it was boring. It however could be good for kids or people who haven't gone much further into the Star Wars universe than watching the films.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good series, but packaging isn't all that good, 3 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Due South - Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
This box set contains all 26 episodes from season 3 (or seasons 3&4 depending on where you are in the world). The show's great fun, kinda insane sometimes.

Quality of the image isn't all that good sometimes, especially when there's movement. It could be chalked up to the age of the series, but I'm still wondering if something could have been done to improve it.

The only audio is English and there are no subtitles.

There are a few extras: some trailers, season 3 featurettes, TV spots, the 'Ride Forever' documentary, audio commentary from Paul Gross on 'Call of the Wild' (both parts) and interviews of Paul Gross from 'Fully Booked' and 'Mashed'. I haven't watched them so I can't comment on them.

Sadly, this is one of those packagings where it's difficult to remove discs from the box. Maybe you need larger fingers than I have to be able to push effectively on the thingy in the center of the disc, but I have difficulties with it. I really wish they could have gone with a different packaging.

I hope this review was helpful to you.
