5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Monroe - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
There is no point in going into the details of each episode as this will just spoil it .

Monroe is a brilliant and unusual neurosurgeon. A flawed genius who never lets anyone forget his flaws or his genius. Each episode features one compelling story of the week about life or death situations.

Gabriel Monroe, portrayed by James Nesbitt who can do no wrong in my book. Furthermore, in general the operations and the way the series tells of the background of the guest characters, are done in a very stylish and effective manner. It was also good how the cardiac centred stories were shown in an equal amount to the neurosurgery ones. Also the operation themselves and how they are done are just remarkable, such as when they have to stop a patient's heart in order to transplant it and when a patient is awake during the operation on their brain.

A tiny bit gory at times and laced with a little black humor here and there. All in all a very enjoyable series and any comparison to House is just a waste of time. Two totally different series.

Add to Monroe Dr Jenny Bremmer (Sara Parrish) and you have it. Worth every penny

Sit back and enjoy this wonderful British series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British television., 11 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: George Gently Series 4 [DVD] (DVD)
The only complaint i have is that we are only getting two ninty minute episodes. Apart from that what can you expect from Martin Shaw? He has always come up with the goods and to team him with Lee Englelby was just brilliant as they are so different in character yet, compliment each other beautifully.

Having purchased all the previous series i was not disappointed with series four. I will not spoil it for you, but if you like Morse or Lewis, then you will be very well at home with Gently and co. First class British television at its very very best.

Put you feet up and enjoy!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars A waste of time, 31 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blackout [DVD] (DVD)
The only reason i give this dvd two stars is because of the fantastic actors. I will not spoil it for you, but this is a three part series with amazing potential. In the first part we are pulled into the world of a local politician with a major drinking problem and who suffers flashbacks about an event that did or did not happen. In the second part, the story really developes and in the third part it just falls flat on its face at the end and was a total disappointment. We who buy at amazon help each other out by giving reviews, and i certainly rely on reviews before buying a dvd, so sadly i have given a poor one. Before you buy this dvd ask someone who has seen it and maybe you will understand the lousy review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Was expecting more, 29 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Good Cop [DVD] (DVD)
Firstly Warren Brown as usual was superb. However i feel the the series was unfinished. This is not the first time that a cop has gone rogue, but here you are left in the air which i feel was a let down. The series has everything you need in a drama, fantastic actors,
great story line, excitement, tension, but then it just fizzled out which is sad. It was like having a fantastic recipe, but forgetting a major ingredient.
I think they better come up with series two mighty quick, beause the potential is there in the script and this series needs to be finished.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected gem, 11 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Dustbin Baby [DVD] (DVD)
I have to steal Gary H comment as this exactly what it is. A real gem of a movie. For me a real change as i spend a lot of time and money watching silent witness, waking the dead and other superb British dramas. The film is moving , sad and funny at times. I cannot recommend this movie more highly.
And yes it does have subtitles for the hard of hearing.
Bottom line
BUY IT!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British T.V, 6 Jun. 2012

This review is from: Vera: Series 2 [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
I really do not understand why series one got such negative reviews. I loved it and bought series two and again was not disappointed. Could well be the lead actress in Brenda Blethyn or it could be the first class scripts. Either way it is an awesome combination of both. This is British television drama at it best. Wont spoil it for you, but as others have said, then if you liked morse, then you will surely love vera.
Buy it, and sit back and relax. A truely excellent series and hope there will be more on the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 30 May 2012

This review is from: White Heat [DVD] (DVD)
This is an outstanding piece of British drama and i cannot praise it enough. Like other reviewers i was worried about the series going back and forth in time, yet this is an integral and essential part of the series. Seven different people who started out sharing the same flat in the sixties, and slowly going forward fifty years when they all meet up again.
Superp actors, superb story.
My advice is to sit back and just enjoy.

Everything Trevor Eve does is brilliant. And the second season is just good as the first.
If you like high octane drama, then this is for you. Just sit back and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great British T.V., 28 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vera - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Waited a year to buy this dvd because i was put off by the negative reviews.
Was very very surprised by the whole series and really enjoyed it. I think the comparison here is with Morse, as in both series one falls for heroes as they are both brilliant actors. Take them away and i am not sure if the series will stand up.
Brenda Blethyn is just like a gin and tonic. Wonderful lady and great all round series.
Bottom line, BUY IT!
