- Genius (TV Series) (2017)
- Very good indeed, and probably quite accurate. Amazing how much irritation one gets to feel for a figure who has always shone like a bright star of genius.
- DVD $34.95
- Salamander (TV Series) (2013)
- Really gripping series, satisfying plot and well acted. Realistic but not grungy. Tension kept tight throughout
- DCI Banks (TV Series) (2010)
- Good, realistic plots, well acted and not TOO gory! Most enjoyable.
- Slings and Arrows (TV Series) (2003)
- Excellent. The first episode is rather manic and confusing, but it just gets better and better. Good plot, wonderful performances.
- Secret State (TV Mini-series) (2012)
- Excellent plot (how one wishes it could actually happen), fine acting, very gripping.
- DVD $34.95
- Method, The (El Método) (2005)
- A really tantalising plot well–presented. Low–key but very clever and amusing
- Dunera Boys, The (Mini-series) (1985)
- On disc as a movie –– and truly great entertainment. Low–key comedy and pathos, whimsical humour and excellent performances. Really enjoyable and different.
- Witnesses (TV Mini-series) (2016)
- Excellent series! Plot complex enough to be interesting, but still clear. Actors develop their characters with fine detail. Fairly tense, with surprises
- British, The (2012)
- Actually well made and presented –– but really more suited to intermediate–age school students. No in–depth info; viewpoints of celebs, not academics.
$20 $10, $29.95
- Boss (TV Series) (2011)
- Very powerful, good performances from all. Every time one starts feeling some empathy with him, there's another ugly twist.
- DVD $49.95
