5.0 out of 5 stars I love Shatner as Denny "mad cow" Crane, Aug. 6 2014

This review is from: Boston Legal: Season 4 (DVD)
Hilarious show. I love Shatner as Denny "mad cow" Crane. And, of course, Candice Bergen is one of my lifelong crushes from my youth. The cast is excellent as an ensemble and the appearance of guest actors makes it interesting. My favourite character is Shelley Berman's senile judge. I love that character. Well, enough jibber jabber and poopycock.

This review is from: Hinterland - Series 1 (DVD)
Very good series. I was fascinated by the bonus feature which showed the show being made in two languages. Like Endeavour, this is an intelligent program and I'm really hoping that there will be a season 2.

British programming is the best. I wish our North American film industry could produce intelligent programming like this. As a Canadian, I'm still not sure on how this solicitor-lawyer system works. It looks like the person being defended has two attorneys. One of these days, I'm going to have to find out how the system works.

This DVD moved me. I loved The Wire but The Corner is more authentic and focused. It showed drug addiction for the ugly monster that it is.

Terrific series. The best part of British programming - aside from the great acting, intelligent plots - is the absence of gratuitous sex and profane language.

I love this series. It's not for those who like superficial, fast action police work. This is a thinking person's program. The plots are complex and the solutions are even more complex. The only negative is the character Bright - it is played so well by the actor that the hair on my neck stands up every time he's in a scene. That character is downright obnoxious.

I really like this series. There is always some sort of plot which dispels the image of a quiet bucolic little town. As a Canadian, I like the sound of the Welsh accent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really worth it, May 9 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I thought this was going to be a comedy but it turns out to be something of a weak soap opera. The only redeeming feature is seeing Susan Lucci playing a nice woman. It's kind of strange to see since she plays a b***h so very well. But, she does a fairly good job of playing a nice woman.

5.0 out of 5 stars BBC Quality at its Best, April 17 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ripper Street: Season Two (DVD)
This series is terrific. The only issue I have with it is the loud and invasive music which seems to step all over the dialogue in places. It seems to be louder than the dialogue and isn't welcome. The story lines and the acting are typical high quality one expects from BBC.
