5.0 out of 5 stars without a doubt Another Must Buy, June 12 2004
I bought series 3 last week and have watched it 3 times already. Series 3 is another hit, just like i expected. This season the writing did take a direction change, but that only added for fuel to the comedic fire per character. For example,
More Couples:
Patrick and Sally do a lot of talking. So now we get to see these two interact more. It all works out.
Drama:
You have what you think is serious, pregnancy test, but then we learn that Jill just grabbed the pizza man for a shag.
And of course, Jeff is still Jeff. Everything here works with precision.
This without a doubt Another Must Buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have..., March 6 2004
This review is from: Frasier: Season 2 (DVD)
Frasier is a gem and in a tv world that is often bland, You take ideas and notions that might seem snobby and you mixed them with a unique, irreplaceable cast and you get laugher and smiles that are far and deep in you belly.
Frasier rocks, there is not doubt about that.

2.0 out of 5 stars No thumbs up, Feb. 8 2004
Not all that great. I enjoy this author but this book had a too much going on and a lot of which was not going in the right direction.
For the most part the book was a great read. The character of Sidney Archer and her story line were my real problem. This lady is smart enough to know the FBI is following her, but doesn't assume they can tap her phone. She, in deductive reasoning, concludes her husband has indeed sent her an email... How, Why? That was total bs. The character sees some mail, magazines, delivered to the wrong place then she thinks the same, versus email. Interesting, She didn't check her own email that way.
The next problem was the gun fights. During gun fights you can't really stop and have a conversation. This happens toward the end of the book. The two FBI agents and Sidney talk, not yell, over the gunfire. It had also been mentioned that all the lights had been shot out, and still, they saw each other. You had HRT members hit, hurt and not once did anyway yell, agent down.
Something like this happened prior in the book too. Sidney was fighting the unauthorized visitor in her house and there was no light, yet, both could see how to fight the other person. Doesn't add up.
That said, I would give it two stars. These are major draw backs, but if you take out the Sidney Archer character, this all flies well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, Jan. 4 2004
You just have to see this movie. Will Ferrel, right that, that's a reason.
When you watch this movie you will laugh, you will think it's silly and you will find yourself letting go to just have fun. Old School is a great comedy about some guys who like to have fun, to want to live a bit in the past and don't see the need to play by the rules. Check it out.

Sudden Prey
Sudden Prey

Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my first Prey novel ...., Dec 23 2003
This is my first Prey novel and after I was done I wanted to give it a 50/50 reply, but on second thought I think it was a fascinating read. The author introduced several characters of dept with ease, kept a quick pace of throughout the book made a book that was very plausible. In many cases, write create situations to make parts of the story feasible, but this was not the case. Sudden Prey is a chain of events that could happen any day to any of use. Collateral damage is easily seen here.
The characters, nearly all, don't have tunnel vision throughout the plot as well. There are family challenges as well as cause and effect thoughts that make what the character says, all the more normal.
I give it a 4 of 5.

Read it, watch the show, you will enjoy them.

2.0 out of 5 stars so-so, June 27 2003
This review is from: Chiefs (Mass Market Paperback)
This was a decent read. I think the plot was a bit scattered and the dialogue shift between some of the characters was over used and cliché, but for the most part the book was okay.
The authors slips a bit of sociology in there too. You see a circle of events but you also see the answer to questions that, as adults, we see in kids. " How can anyone hate like that?" Well, the family may be part of the reason and in this story, you get that. A racist father, a racist son and so one. The progression makes sense. The honest father, the honest son.
