You seem genuinley offended that 8 people didn't take to your review! People viewing the page for the DVD are most likely going to be fans of the show really arent they? If they agreed with a 2* review then chances are they wouldnt be browsing the complete first season on DVD...
Don't take it so personally!!!
Incidentally I have just read your review btw, and it's a very articulate and well justified review, but because I disagree with what you say I'm not going to enthusiastically hit the "Yes" button on the agree bit. Not hitting "no" either but there you go. And omg how can you find the person playing Olive annoying? Kirstin Chenowith is one of my favourites lol!
I think you should grow up personally. Maybe it's just because people genuinely don't feel your review is helpful. I mean, I don't find giving a 2 star review just because you dislike the narration particularly helpful.
your opinion is valid and something you are entitled to but what you've posted is an opinion not a review. a review of a dvd should cover all the episodes any extras and say what the dvd has in the way of subtitles and language tracks and the like.
But you're so right on one thing: just because people don't like a review doesn't mean it's unhelpful. votes are supposed to be on whether they're helpful or not, not on whether people agree or disagree with them. I do wish people would get that concept!
Paul, I don't think that most people will ever get the difference between a helpful review and a review that is helpful that they disagree with. It's a bit too subtle and people do in general look for things that they are either going to buy regardless of how good it is - music by a favourite artist, DVD of a series from TV, a computer game etc - or they are simply browsing using the famous amazon, you liked this look at this system, in which case they still have a vested interest in the items being shown to them as Amazon says they should like them. I write quite a few negative reviews/opinions on items and usually just expect to be panned, as people do not understand that telling them how it is - This software does not work on x, or this toy is rubbish, build quality is poor - is actually helpful!
