5.0 out of 5 stars Best TV Mini-series in a Long Time, January 19, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Has to be one of the best cinema-to-TV adaptations ever. This series takes one back to the blindingly hostile snow white landscapes of Minnesota/NDakota as visualized by those amazing Coen Brothers in the original film. However, plot and characters are new. Of special note are the performances by Allison Tolman, channeling Francis McDormand's police deputy role, Martin Freeman, British actor, he of Dr. Watson and Hobbit fame, playing the William H Macy character; and about the scariest villain to come along in quite some time, Lorne Malvo, played deliciously by Billy Bob Thornton. A series not to be missed.

3.0 out of 5 stars but then felt like sinking into mush, October 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Functions as advertised. Used it on top, but underneath a pad on a new 'memory foam' mattress, which promised a really firm experience, but then felt like sinking into mush. After a few weeks, returned the mattress for a traditional coil spring. Better.
The Mabis Dmi Healthcare Folding Bed Board is now doing duty as a support for a sofa couch.

Light, elegant, responsive. What else do you expect from Apple?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite films..., April 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An often overlooked Steven Spielberg opus, this wonderfully enthralling account of J.G. Ballard's semi-autographical novel of a British boy in Japanese occupied China, makes it a must see. With riveting performances by John Malkovich and a very young Christian Bale. Not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best mini series on WW2, April 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Pacific [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Along with Band of Brothers, The Pacific provides a visceral viewing experience of what it was like to save democracy from the heinousness of tyranny. Gritty, sometimes difficult to watch, it's an emotionally enthralling ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best mini series on WW2, April 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Along with The Pacific, Band of Brothers makes WW2, and America's involvement, a moving and vivid experience. A nice companion to Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must video..., April 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What is there to say? Still the best Hollywood film on WW2, with a stellar cast, vivid visuals, and directed by the gifted Steven Spielberg.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best video treatments of WW2 with the Ken Burns touch., April 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For those of an historical bent, a must for the millennial generation to know what it was like when democracies were in dire peril. History does often repeat itself. Unfortunately.

As with most things Apple, no surprises on quality and elegance of design and operation. Easy setup and transfer of files from older machines. Beautiful screen and great speed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just okay..., April 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nothing to be impressed with. Adequate sound, but expected more bass. Comes with USB charge cord, but would have been nice to have had an included AC charger.
