5.0 out of 5 stars Superb - As Expected, July 25 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Inspector Lewis: Series 7 (DVD)
The story and the acting were, as expected, excellent. I could have done with much less Robbie and Laura and their mushiness but otherwise, the plots were superb. I was disappointed that there are only three episodes in the series. I want more...much more of this series. I don't know if the series has ended or if there is a series 8 in the works. I do hope there will be a series 8...and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Series in Every Way, July 15 2015

This is typical high quality British programming. Whatley and Laurence have incredible chemistry - their voices, looks, styles complement each other and, together, are a formidable duo. The stories and plots are intriguing and the solution to the crime is always a bit of a surprise. The subtleties and nuances are high quality. All in all, this is a superb series. I'm looking forward to receiving my copy of series 7.

This was an interesting video to watch. It certainly isn't a cookie cutter film that's for sure. The British seem to have such expertise in crafting a story which comprises intrigue, interesting facts, and a subtle hint of humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Viewing, June 19 2015
This review is from: Book of Negroes, The (DVD)
This was an amazing mini-series. I just wish it had been longer - much longer. I was sorry when I came to the end of the video. The only negative I saw was the complete lack of continuity between the young Aminata and the adult Aminata - there was no resemblance in appearance between the two. Other than that one minor flaw, this is an excellent series that I highly recommend. I also recommend the book - it's an amazing part of history.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings, June 12 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was very disappointed with season 7. It lacked the humour and zing of the previous seasons. It seemed as if the writers had absolutely no idea how to end the series and so they jumped all over the place and forgot the humour. A few times, it came close to being funny but even Tammy 2 was tame and lame. Gone was the chemistry and energy. It's a real shame that a wonderful series like this had to end with such a whimper.

This season is even better than season one. It looks like the writers have hit their stride and the chemistry among the actors has become solidified. Now, let's get cracking on season 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular. The best season, yet., May 23 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Call the Midwife: Season 4 (DVD)
This is the best season, yet. With the departure of Jenny Lee, the other characters and stories could be developed and developed they became. To be honest, Jenny was my least favourite character - she was whiny and spoiled. I am now anxious for season 5 since so many questions were left unanswered. Was the baby switching ever resolved? Will Trixie become a recovering alcoholic? Will Patsy find love again? My only disappointment was the absence of special features at the end. I love those interviews and outtakes.

This is an excellent drama. The characters are human and the acting is superb. British programming puts North American drama to shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Hilarity., May 23 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is classic British comedy. Side-splitting, subtle humour that requires an alert brain and a dry sense of humour. The characters were hilarious and the absence of vulgarity (unlike American "comedy") made it non-stop hilarious.

Excellent mower. The charge lasts me the entire summer. Easy to use and very efficient. I use the quiet setting and it works just fine.
