Is it winter yet?
Review of Game of Thrones Season 4 (Blu-ray) by alliewallie

Advantages: Gripping story all the way through, excellent characters, good use of HD and Blu Ray technology
Disadvantages: Very gory and a lot of bad language through the season

I love Game of Thrones and have watched every minute of every season so far, I have treated myself to the Blu Ray box sets of each season because I know this is a series I will watch again at a later date and the story is enhanced by the improved visuals ... Read review

Clever & enjoyable tv show
Review of Gilmore Girls - Series 1 (Box Set) (DVD) by sarah2303

Advantages: Good writing, not predictable, addictive viewing
Disadvantages: A few OTT characters

I didn't get into watching Gilmore Girls until the series had ended and I stumbled upon a re-run. I thought Gilmore Girls was entertaining and very cleverly written, especially with the fast-paced dialogues and references to other films and music. A ro ... Read review

Broadening Attitudes to Crime Drama?
Review of Broadchurch (Series 1) (DVD) by BlackSwan

Advantages: Well-paced with some excellent twists. Excellent cast and performances. Effec
Disadvantages: Crass dream sequences

Whilst season 2 of “Broadchurch” is still up for the people’s jury to decide upon its critical merit, I thought I would cast a thought back to the original show. It began as a story where the body of a young boy was found on the beach of the fictional Dor ... Read review

Review of Coronation Street - The Nineties (DVD) by bettyboo47

Disadvantages: story lines disjointed

I am a huge Coronation Street fan, and last year (2013) my ever-loving hubby bought me the DVD boxed sets of the 60's and 70's which I have since reviewed for Ciao. As these presents were such a hit with me, this year he bought me some more of the coll ... Read review

A nostalgic read :-) by ladyofflame
I watched The Street consistently through the 90's - all of the characters and trials and tribulations are very familiar.....giving up watching all of the soaps in the autumn of 2001 was a life-changing move - the time that it liberated was staggering! A superb review here. R. by RICHADA

Crime Traveller - Not As Entertaining the Second Time Around
Review of Crime Traveller (Collector's Box Set) (DVD) by anonymili

Advantages: decent enough watch for fans of crime sci fi shows
Disadvantages: acting not really very impressive from leads

I watched Crime Traveller years ago when it was first aired on TV and recently found this box set whilst browsing TV crime on Amazon so thought I'd pick a copy up and see how well the show has aged. The PG rated show was originally aired in 1997 and con ... Read review

Advantages: Multiple themes in one story, very good cinematography with great actors

From the first scene shown in the first episode, they really had a great cinematography. I even thought it was a film I was watching until I was told by my partner that it was the first episode of a series. I was indeed surprised. The quality of the show ... Read review

Kevin Bacon's FBI profiler battles mass murderer's cult following
Review of The Following Season 1 (DVD) by pmcds

Advantages: Dark and obsessive
Disadvantages: Weak moments in the middle episodes

Aside from seeing Kevin Bacon flaunt just how fast his internet runs with 4G from EE, he is also an extremely accomplished actor. Lending his talents to a TV show is something that I know many have waited for since I don't know when, and we finally get it ... Read review

Although, simply because I am curious, since you mentioned you own the DVD I would like to see about the special features. I would like to know whether the DVD is worth buying. It's a quality series.
