5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but..., June 27, 2014
This review is from: Vicious (DVD)
It's British humour..which a lot of Americans just don't get.
It's about an openly gay couple...which a lot of people may have issues with.
It's supposed to be over the top...watch the interview with McKellen and Jacobi and hear their take on the characters.
Enjoy it...it's a comedy not a documentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll love it, you know you will!, September 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I apologise that I am not reviewing the DVD itself; its quality, extras and price etc., but the content of the show. I am sure that the quality of production for the series 3 DVD will be just as good as the previous ones, just make sure you purchase the unedited version.
Downton series 3 kicks off in splendid style, though I am a bit confused about the time line. Sybil is expecting and barely "showing" and we are told this is almost 6 months on from the Christmas special, in which we were told she was expecting. The early storyline with Edith is also a major inconsistency for me, but I cannot say why without giving things away. Apart from these niggles, this series is going to be about change. The world from top to bottom changed after WW1 and this series is dealing with those issues. I will not tell what's going on, but there are many changes coming for both upstairs and downstairs at Downton. Shirley Maclaine is terrific with the whole cast, but provides a perfect foil for Maggie Smith and the whole show is worth watching just for those two, well they have the best lines anyway. I only wish she was in it for more than the first 2 episodes. The sets, the costumes, the cars, the house are all wonderful and show such attention to detail. If you're a fan of Downton you will love series 3. (and it has been announced there will be a series 4!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great for Christmas!, February 2, 2012
It was just the kind of thing you want to watch at Chrstmas. Love, intrigue, a dashing rogue, Maggie Smith and the immortal line "do you promise?", happiness, tears and snow (though it fell upward at times). On Christmas evening it worked beautifully. I hope the story will be the same if seen at another time of year when we aren't so content with ourselves. It WAS good and I have watched it a number of times. Buy the US set where it's included and it's worth it. Bring on series 3, set to begin filming next month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth the Wait, October 17, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I cannot review this set, as it has not yet been released. But I can tell others that it is well worth the wait. Here in the UK we are on the 5th episode of 8 and are promised a Chrsitmas special as well. I hope that will be included in the US version, hence the February release. The story is set during World War I and there are some spectacular twists to the story! Those you love and those you love to hate are all back, with some new characters as well. The scripts are very well written, Maggie Smith has some fabulous lines! The costumes and scenery are again lush. I am enjoying this series so much I have pre-ordered this set for my brother in the US. If you loved series 1 and got involved with the characters you will love series 2 which continues their stories. It is a huge hit here and they are already talking about series 3, to be set in the 1920's.
Update: the DVD set has come out in the UK. I cannot know what will be on the US version, but the UK version has a section of deleted scenes. Have a look at them, some bits of the story make more sense. The reveiws here are mixed, as many thought it got too "soap opera" and predictable, while others felt it was unbelievable.

I love Skagen watches! I thought this one would be great, different colours for different outfits with the three bands. BUT 2 of the bands were incorrectly made and could not be fastened onto the watch case. Had to return the set. Disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great DVDs, but..., November 20, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The set is great, make no mistake about that. Great packaging, great TV drama. But I am annoyed with Amazon, as I bought it 2 weeks ago when the price was $197.99 and now it has dropped almost $20 in 2 weeks. Not Fair!!
