Thank you Niels. Have been waiting for season 5 and will have to wait a bit longer... It's been available for viewing but I want the DVD set. I hope I don't forget about this series while I wait because it is fantastic.

Does what it says on tin. It's a cuddly toy that was well received and now well loved by my little one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good man Jesus, 15 Dec. 2010
Easy to read as well as thought-provoking. Just as 'The Life of Brian' was not an attack on Jesus but a parody of the way some have chosen to follow him, this story likewise gives a positive and realistic view of the man Jesus. Using the fictional alter-ego and twin Christ, Pullman represents his view of where the Christian church has missed the point. The message that Jesus is sharing (such as that of the sermon of the mount) seems accurate and real. The miracles are not so much explained as downplayed by both Jesus and Christ leaving it to the reader to decide whether they were in fact miraculous or just seen that way. The idea that an fully structured global church was a concept from the start (by Christ) and in fact refuted by Jesus (here a slant on the temptation of Jesus after the 40 days is revealing) is putting the cart before the horse perhaps but allows the story to be told during the timeframe of Jesus's life. Just as in the Python movie this story should give pause for thought to Christians and understanding to non-Christians. Following Jesus should be seen as a dignified and noble way of life but doing what a church says blindly without thought should be challenged.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Goodies - at last!, 15 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a child of the 1970s and an avid fan of the Goodies from 1970-1976 I have had nothing but enjoyment from seeing these three clowns doing what entertained and made me ache with laughter then and to my surprise again now. The iconic giant kitten was seared into my memory but the pleasure in being reminded of less memorable but just as hilarious sketches all wrapped up into a plot (of sorts) was great. I have a 9 and 7 year old who are now hooked and start laughing the minute the theme song comes on and the three loons (riding their three seater bike) look into the camera to that catchy song. All the better for the fact that the series was never repeated and so this material actually seems fresh even though the haircuts, clothes and contemporary references are so from that decade. I have had to explain things to the boys such as in the episode 'South Africa' that thankfully is now history for them (they have heard of Nelson Mandella but were just a little confused at the 'nignog' references). How quickly things change... mostly for the better (I notice all the lovely old British cars in the background that are sadly no more). Excellent.
