I'm not sure if I "love" it but it was great to not have to go into Staples to buy a cartridge. The price on Amazon was competitive so it was well worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. More of the same., Jan. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If not for Morgan and Tamra, the show would have tanked ages ago. Mindy is one-dimensional: an airhead who's extremely immature and who is, basically, a very loose person. The show is mildly amusing but not gripping.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't live up to expectations, Jan. 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are some funny moments but when push comes to shove, it's pretty much the same thing each episode: Mindy ends up having sex with some guy who doesn't stick around. Morgan and Tamra make the show - the two of them are hilarious. As for Mindy, her character is not credible - how can a person who makes it through medical school be so dumb?

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't live up to its hype., Jan. 6 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I would have given the series five stars if it hadn't been, for 7 seasons, more of a Steve Carell show than an ensemble show. Admittedly, I'm not a Carell fan but after season 3, I began fast forwarding through his scenes because they were always the same - ham acting. The other obnoxious character was Andy Bernard. However, seasons 8 and 9 were great because they focused more on Dwight, Jim, and Erin and the stories became more varied. If I were to do it over, I'd buy seasons 7 through 9. I had never heard of Rainn Wilson or John Krasinski before but the two of them had the most incredible chemistry on-screen. They were perfect foils for each other and the best scenes were their pranking of each other. A great cast, with the exception of Carell and Helms. I wish there had been more David Wallace and Gabe Lewis - those two were great. The biggest treat was, of course, James Spader. The guy is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, Dec 18 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This has to be one of the funniest and most intelligent comedies I've seen in a very long time. Ron Swanson makes the show, for me. I like the absence of a laugh track. Laugh tracks detract from the comedy and basically try to manipulate the audience. Parks and Rec is an intelligent and hilarious comedy.

Season four was okay but the series has lost its punch. Seasons one and two were superb. Season three was a little less deep and season 4 was just okay. I think the writers lost interest at some point. I won't be purchasing season 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Non-stop Laughter., Nov. 8 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My ribs are so sore from laughing. I watched the set over two days - that's how addictive it is. Those ladies make an amazing ensemble cast. The only disappointment was the lack of special features at the end. I was hoping for some bloopers and some interviews. I can't wait until season 6 is available on DVD. I also like how the series deals with some serious issues in a humourous but meaningful manner. I especially liked how Victoria's son Tony "came out" as straight to her and how she reacted. That cracked me up big time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing, Oct. 22 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: DCI Banks: Aftermath (DVD)
I'm so glad that I bought this DVD. I have watched series 1 and 2 on DVD and enjoyed them immensely. Aftermath fills in some blanks and that makes the series even more enjoyable (I'll be re-watching them). I now know the story behind Lucy Payne as well as how Annie Cabbot came to be part of Banks' team. The acting is stellar and the story line is intriguing and very well written. I especially liked the near-intimacy between Banks and Cabbot. British programming has a way of inferring intimacy without turning it into cheap near-porn as so many North American programs do. This is why I'm hooked on British programming on DVD.

What a great DVD. This is British television programming in the style which makes it so great. The acting was superb. Absolutely superb. The characters were so real. I hope there will be a series 2.

What a disappointment. I have used the aerosol spray and the citrus scent is very pronounced and very nice. The carpet powder has almost no scent and what little scent there is doesn't smell citrus. There's only a faint scent of Dettol. A total waste of money.
