3.0 out of 5 stars Affected By The Flash?, 8 Jun. 2015
I'm a big fan of Arrow but there's no denying that this season was of a poorer quality than previous seasons. In my opinion the main reason for this is that the show shared showrunners with The Flash (The CWs brilliant new show and a spin off of Arrow) it's also telling that season 4 of Arrow has a new showrunner. It will hopefully be better as a result. Average plot. Average villains. Great fights. Wait for it to reduce in price...

5.0 out of 5 stars Learned From Early Arrow Mistakes, 8 Jun. 2015
This show is great from the get go. The show runners (who also run Arrow) have learned from the bad plot elements that were evident in early Arrow episodes. These being that no one knew the main characters secret etc. As a result the flash roars out the blocks. And Grant Gustin shows his acting chops as the season goes on. Great plot! Buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars No "Case" to structure episodes = decrease in quality, 4 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Sherlock - Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
The first two series of sherlock featured a "case" or investigation which served as the structure for each individual episode. IMO this is what made the show great: it made the audience think and anticipate and guess who the killer was and allowed room for plenty of character development.

This series hasn't got this structure and IMO that is why it is the weakest series of the show so far. That being said the acting is once again top notch. I hope for a return to form next series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, well acted Cold War drama from the "bad guys" perspective, 9 Mar. 2014
Great acting. Great overarching storyline and mini storylines. Gives an examination of the mindset of the "bad guys" of the Cold War, and makes you think maybe they weren't so bad. Can't recommend it highly enough: buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Half Excellent, Half Stuttering & Inconsistent, 24 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Luther - Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I've been a big fan of Luther since its beginning and have previously written a glowing 5 star review of the first two seasons on Amazon. This season however, was a bit of a let down.

The first case set over the first two episodes is fantastic. The second case is probably the worst that Luther has had and features an event that was completely unnecessary and I suspect purely to add dramatic tension because they knew it was the last series. Alice is not used enough, but the one episode she is in, she is both hilarious and compelling.

The main story of the season plays out of over all 4 episodes and deals with two internal affairs officers (Erin Gray and new character George Stark) trying to bring down Luther because they believe he is corrupt. This storyline initially sets up some fantastic scenes between Luther, Ripley, Gray and Stark but from the 2nd episode onwards becomes inconsistent and grating. It becomes clear that Gray and Stark's 'logic' is fatally flawed and they are bending every piece of 'evidence' to make it look Luther is guilty. This comes to a head when they start to suspect Luther has hired a serial killer he had been trying to catch to kill his new girlfriend. Which is completely unbelievable and poorly executed.

Even though it eventually gave me the series ending that I always wanted, I can't help but feel the final series could have been so much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best hannibal since silence of the lambs, 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a fan of the original thomas harris novels I have to say this is probably the best imagining of his famous character. Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy give fantastic performances as Hannibal and Will Graham respectively and every single episode is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game, Bad Glitch, 14 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Of Us (PS3) (Video Game)
The Game is amazing, probably the best i've ever played. But BEWARE i found out about 2 hours into the game that in a lot of copies of this game there is an autosave bug which stops you from saving manually and being able to quit the game, the only way to stop this once it has happened is to restart your playstation, i lost about 45 minutes of gameplay which is irritating but could have been worse. I'm not sure if naughty dog is planning a patch for this but the only way to get around it is to constantly monitor your pause menu to make sure the autosave dosen't freeze

5.0 out of 5 stars I was put off by critics and almost missed out on this great show, 12 Aug. 2012
I'm a person that really relies on the opinions of critics to find a good show. When I read the reviews for the first season of falling skies, I thought it was an average show. However when my brother recommended it to me, I checked it out and now I absolutely love it. IMO this is an incredibly underrated show, I enjoyed every minute from start to finish, and the second season is even better.

Strongly recommended.
