4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable experience, March 21 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We quite enjoyed this movie. We have started to watch the TV show before we saw the source movie. It is quite a good intro to the TV show and helps with the backstory of Senator Morra in the TV show.
The movie is great as a stand alone movie and the alternate ending puts a different spin on the movie and subsequent TV show.

As usual with this series of anthologies, it is an excellent collection with a variety of songs to work with.
I like the brief synopsis and description in the front of the book for each show and song.
As a vocal teacher and coach, these are good additions to your musical theatre library.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware! Disc didn't work!, March 21 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this Blue Ray as a present. We liked the movie in the theatre, unfortunately the present was opened after 30 days only to discover that it ran for 10 sec, froze up and would not continue. I tried the disc in a couple of machines with no success. I have not had this problem with Amazon before and since it was after the 30 day return policy I had to warily buy another copy. I can only hope that this one works and it was just a production glitch the first time around!
Buyer beware!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A very informative and useful book for anyone wanting to model the BR era railway. For someone who did not live in England at the time it was great and the combination of real photos and various excellent BR layouts was great. It covered a large and varied number of topics. If you are looking for specific detailed help in one area, this book gives more of an overview, but it was well worth the money and an excellent resource source!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful quirky British show set on a fictional island in ..., July 15 2014
A wonderful quirky British show set on a fictional island in the Caribbean. We originally starting watching the third season that was being broadcast with a new DI. So now we are catching up with season 1 and 2 and find out what happened.

The show has an excellent cast, it is well written and acted. Each story has twists and turns. While it is a procedural drama the endings are not as predictable as some similar North American police TV shows. The peppering of humour and family character building makes the show's murder investigations seem more realistic.

Well worth the money and time spent watching.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting short movies of early BR service., May 31 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I enjoyed this 2 disc set of 4 short documentary movies. A lot of the footage was stock shots dating back many years. It showed the steam and the early diesel electric eras. As an adult learning about this bygone era it was informative, as a model railway builder it gave me great ideas for my BR layout. They informed you about the rise and fall of steam and the the BR system as a whole.

The reason I took off one star was that it was designed to be educational, therefore it wasn't too captivating too watch, it lacked all the modern "pizzazz" that is now used to keep the younger ones attention. Also, some of the footage was repeated in the different documentaries so while the voice overs were different you recognised the video they were using.

Other than that it was an excellent video source for me to reference and too watch when I need a shot of BR steam!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant as always!, Aug. 24 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NCIS: Season 10 (DVD)
Love the show, love the DVD. Without the commercials the B&W stills with percussion hit between acts in the episode is a little dramatic, but they are there for broadcast reasons.

The extras were great I did miss a gag reel, especially for such an intense season. As always the final cliffhanger leaves you waiting for season 11....

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Introduction especially for a model railroader!, Aug. 24 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an excellent guide to the main manufacturers and producers of American Diesel and Modern American Electric locomotives. For someone like me who did not work with the real beasts and is relatively new to the model train world, it is a wonderful reference guide. Informative, good pictures and great ideas for what your layouts might like to look like.
(It does contain any how to on modeling, it deals with the real locomotives only)
