5.0 out of 5 stars It's not Blackadder, it's Bill., 15 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bill [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Firstly, having read some of the one-star reviews let me start by saying what this film is not: It's not Blackadder, it's not satire (or not much), it's not an extended episode of Horrible Histories and it's not even remotely historically accurate. What it is is a bunch of excellent comic actors being extremely silly and playing very fast and loose with some familiar historical characters. It's goofy, it's stupid, it's clever, it's fun, it's occasionally a little raunchy (although nothing family-unfriendly if you can handle the odd naked buttock) and all in all it's a very entertaining little film. Certainly an antidote to more sanitised kids fare.

I'm not sure how they managed to make a few red lines on a screen so terrifying but they have. I'm too scared to play the next level...

It's basically 2048 but with an insanely catchy soundtrack. Addictive timewaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars If at first you don't succeed..., 16 Feb. 2016

This review is from: Shades of Grey (Kindle Edition)
The first time I read this, I thought "What the hell did I just read?"

The second time I read it, I thought "Okay, NOW I get it."

The third time, I wanted to know where the next book in the series w as, because I wanted to know what happens next.

Still waiting...


Horwood Homewares TC72 Onion Chopper
Horwood Homewares TC72 Onion Chopper
Offered by Cutting Edge Retail
Price: £15.99

3.0 out of 5 stars It depends, 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the upside, this thing will chop onions quickly. On the downside, it's a complete pain in the ass to clean without also chopping your fingers.

If you have a lot of onions to chop, this is the thing to use - it's quick, thorough and cathartic to pound on. If you have one onion, use a knife - it'll take less time when you factor in cleaning.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is AWESOME, 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Here Comes Science (Audio CD)
How can I put this? Because of these videos my daughter, while at pre-school, rattled off all the names of the planets in order. She knows what DNA is and what a paleontologist is. She knows what a conifer is (although that's from the "Here Comes the ABCs" DVD, also recommended). She's four years old. The teachers were astounded. And you will be too, at the sheer amount of clear and accurate information conveyed in catchy song and clever video form.

The topics are a bit all over the place but every song and video is a winner in its own right. Highly recommended.

Second-rate doggerel in an uninspired story. I did not find it worthwhile for me or my child. YMMV of course, but I regret even bothering with it.


The Backyardigans Vol.2 - Into The Deep [2007] [DVD]
The Backyardigans Vol.2 - Into The Deep [2007] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Backyardigans
Offered by I-Deal Media
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars I freaking love The Backyardigans, 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Backyardigans combine clever themes presented in unique ways, with some surprisingly catchy tunes thrown in. And there's none of that insipid or dumbed-down quality that a lot of children's programming has; adults can enjoy these as well.

And there's a lot of content for the price - hours and hours of entertainment. Definitely worthwhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny but all too short, 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading this book will provide you with some of the funniest minutes of your life. About five minutes in total, actually (ten if you read slowly or peruse the pictures).
