5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Series!, June 11 2007
This hard-hitting and emotional series chronicles the life and crimes of the elite Special Victims Unit of the New York Police Department.

The drama follows Det. Elliot Stabler, a seasoned veteran of the unit who has seen it all, and his partner, Olivia Benson, whose difficult past is the reason she joined the unit.

Overseeing the team is Capt. Donald Cragen. Cragen's tough but supportive approach to the team's complex cases guides the squad through the challenges they face every day. Also featured is Det. John Munch, a transfer from Baltimore's homicide unit, who brings his sharp wit, conspiracy theories and investigative skills. Munch is partnered with Det. Odafin Tutuola, whose unique sense of humor and investigative experience make him a great match for Munch.

Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot, and her successor, ADA Casey Novak add a legal component to the series through their efforts to bring closure to the intense investigations. Also aiding the detectives is forensic psychiatrist Dr. George Huang, whose insight into the minds of the accused often provides significant clues that lead to the resolution of a case, and M.E. Melinda Warner, who helps the detectives get the evidence they need from the bodies they find.

I like this series for it's style and strong unique identity. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Television's highest-rated dramas!, June 11 2007
ER follows the medical personnel and patients in the emergency room of Chicago's fictional County General Hospital.

The doctors and nurses of County's ER confront the daily challenges of a busy urban hospital, including overcrowded waiting rooms, staffing shortages, and the impact of life-and-death decisions.

While they teach the next generation of doctors, each must tackle the demands of their personal lives, at times unsuccessfully. The staff is led by Chief of Emergency Medicine Dr. Luka Kovac, a gifted teacher who came from Croatia to Chicago, where he's built a new life and a new family, but is still followed by the shadows of a tragic past, and Dr. Kerry Weaver, County's Chief of Staff, a compassionate doctor and uncompromising administrator who must face some dramatic changes in her life. Each recurring cast members of this show are great and truly believable.

This drama series has won many awards over the years and with good reasons!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Drama/Sci-Fi Show!, June 11 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NEW Season 1 (DVD) (DVD)
Heroes is a serial saga about people all over the world discovering that they have superpowers and trying to deal with how this change affects their lives.

Some of the superheroes includes Peter Petrelli, a male nurse who suspects he might be able to fly; Isaac Mendez, a junkie who has the ability to paint images of the future when he is high; Niki Sanders, a Las Vegas showgirl who does things that are mysteriously connected with mirrors; Hiro Nakamura, a Japanese comic-book geek who literally makes time stand still; D.L. Hawkins, an inmate who can walk through walls; Matt Parkman, a beat cop who can hear other people's thoughts; and Claire Bennet, a cheerleader who defies death at every turn.

As we discover the nature of each hero's powers, the heroes, themselves, are discovering what having superpowers means to them as well as the larger picture of where their superpowers come from.

See how these heroes are drawn together by their common interest of evading the series' antagonist who wants to harvest their super-DNA for himself. Their ultimate destiny is nothing less than saving the world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Crime Drama Show!!!, June 9 2007
This review is from: Criminal Minds: Season 1 (DVD)
This show is composed of an elite team of FBI profilers called "The Behaviorial Analysis Unit (BAU)" who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds and anticipate their next moves before they strike again.

Even though some tends to compare this show to CSI, it's quite different because CSI guides you through the story and gives a picture perfect ending and how you're supposed to perceive it, Criminal Minds lets you explore and judge for yourself. It is a psychological thriller that keeps your undivided attention.

It has excellent and non predictable plots with great performances from each cast members.

Warning: You might not be able to watch only 1 or 2 episodes at a time... highly addictive!

2.0 out of 5 stars Be Aware..., May 27 2007
I bought this DVD thinking it was some kind of special features of the show Buffy with many appearances of Spike (James Marsters) but what a disappointment. All there is on this DVD is 4 episodes of Buffy which included Spike in them. If you already have all 7 seasons of Buffy, you've seen those 4 episodes. There is also a little bit of special features with Spike, but again, these were included in one of the seasons of Buffy. Granted the DVD is not expensive, but still a waste of money when you have all of Buffy's seasons. I gave it a 2 stars because even though I was disappointed of the content of this DVD, I still think Buffy is a great television serie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Drama!, May 27 2007
I enjoyed this movie for it's good (although predictable) storyline and excellent cast. It basically demonstrates how life was hard back then and the willpower that people needed in order to reach their own personal goal.

The only part I disliked is that it should have been a little longer to show more what happens to each characters or maybe a sequel, because it leaves you with a little gap to fill and a few questions at the end. In other words, it needs some kind of closure.

If you like special features, forget it, this movie doesn't have any. Normally I don't really go for it, but this movie would have need it because of the abrupt ending.

But all in all, it was good and entertaining as a movie should be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read the review before buying or renting this one..., May 20 2007
Don't just go by the trailer with this one, read the reviews. I thought this would be something completely different after watching the trailer, but darn was I ever wrong. It leads you to believe that this could be an epic type action movie, but nothing can be further from this.

Unless you like abstract movies with very little sense or logic, I would recommend to stay away from this movie, very far away. At least Hugh Jackman's great performance helps a little bit with the pain I had to go through to watch this whole movie till the end. I had a very hard time to follow this very unbalanced story line. Don't look for entertainment here, it's not there.

Word of advice, if you are tired and sleepy, chose another movie because this one will bore you to sleep in no time.
