Stuff wot I like.

I’ll be using this page to give a flavour of what I like, and don’t like.  It’s also an unashamed attempt to get money for next to nothing.  From here, you can mosey on over to Amazon and get busy with your credit cards!!

We’ll start with one of the finest TV shows of recent, if not any, time.

Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series – Limited Edition [Blu-ray] [2009]

Yes it had it’s periods where maybe it wasn’t as good as it could have been, but overall it was so much better than many things we’ve seen before. Going beyond mere sci-fi, it was a commentary on our times. It contained some fine set pieces and one of the most unexpected cliff-hangers ever with the final act of Season 1. Just watch and enjoy.

Sticking with the TV, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention The Wire. I know, I know, the world and his wife are talking about this show, and is it any wonder? Multi-layered, wonderful characterization and no good guy/bad guy easy way out. Not only that, it stays fresh through multiple viewings. Every time, reveals a little something extra.
