3.0 out of 5 stars Probably not a bad idea to finally turn to a final season to ..., Oct. 18 2015
This review is from: Downton Abbey: Season 5 (DVD)
As a huge fan of Downton Abbey I think this was the weakest season of all of them. Probably not a bad idea to finally turn to a final season to wrap up the unresolved lives of the characters. Hard to believe, but this was the one season that struggled to keep my interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful new season, Oct. 18 2015
This review is from: Vikings: Season 3 (DVD)
A powerful season with some major battles, and some emotional plot turns. The siege of Paris is unbelievable in its epic depiction of the grind of battle. The clashes in England are also very well staged. There are also some surprising turns as a few characters don't make it.

An engrossing new season, despite some major cast comings and goings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking, Oct. 16 2014
A thought provoking read. Interesting new take on the environmental debate, and where to focus energies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Valhalla, Oct. 16 2014
Great season, bloody and more action-packed than the first. The blood eagle is particularly gruesome. There's also a time jump so we see Bjorn older and more grown up played by Alexander Ludwig. Donal Logue from Gotham and Sons of Anarchy is also very good. Gorgeous visuals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magical little story, Oct. 23 2013
I had no idea what to expect with this one... and it surprises along the way, with some magical realism and flights of fancy that actually work. An involving, though quite short read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible show, Oct. 23 2013
After all the buzz, just finished the first season and it's so good. Claire Daines is incredible along with Damian Lewis. The show keeps you guessing all the way through in impressive ways. A very good thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big and bloody fun, Oct. 23 2013
An entertaining, sometimes violent portrayal of Viking life. Travis Fimmel is great in the lead and Gabriel Byrne too. Kathryn Winnick rocks as a shieldmaiden. Well done action and battles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stories in a bleak time, Nov. 28 2012
This review is from: Call the Midwife: Season One (DVD)
Interesting UK drama about midwives in a poor neighbourhood after WW2. Fascinating how retrograde some parts of childbirth and healthcare were.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic historical drama, Nov. 28 2012
This follow up to Pillars of the Earth takes place 200 years later, so it's a new cast, and a great group of actors including Miranda Richardson, Cynthia Nixon and Ben Chaplin. A great watch for fans of historical fiction, though decidedly different from the novel.
