Genius (TV Series)Genius (TV Series) (2017)
4 stars (Very Good) 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)Salamander (TV Series) (2013)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) Really gripping series, satisfying plot and well acted. Realistic but not grungy. Tension kept tight throughout
DCI Banks (TV Series)DCI Banks (TV Series) (2010)
4 stars (Very Good) Good, realistic plots, well acted and not TOO gory! Most enjoyable.
Slings and Arrows (TV Series)Slings and Arrows (TV Series) (2003)Recommended
5 stars (Exceptional) 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)Secret State (TV Mini-series) (2012)
4 stars (Very Good) Excellent plot (how one wishes it could actually happen), fine acting, very gripping.
DVD $34.95
Method, TheMethod, The (El Método) (2005)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) A really tantalising plot well–presented. Low–key but very clever and amusing
Dunera Boys, The (Mini-series)Dunera Boys, The (Mini-series) (1985)Recommended
5 stars (Exceptional) 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)Witnesses (TV Mini-series) (2016)
4 stars (Very Good) Excellent series! Plot complex enough to be interesting, but still clear. Actors develop their characters with fine detail. Fairly tense, with surprises
British, TheBritish, The (2012)
2 stars (Good Try) Actually well made and presented –– but really more suited to intermediate–age school students. No in–depth info; viewpoints of celebs, not academics.
Boss (TV Series)Boss (TV Series) (2011)Recommended
4 stars (Very Good) Very powerful, good performances from all. Every time one starts feeling some empathy with him, there's another ugly twist.
