    I love all those programmes, but, and this is purely a personal thing, I don't see much point in buying them on Blu-ray, as you can download that stuff for free on the net, or watch it on YouTube. Plus, I tend to like action/sci-fi films and/or stuff that shows off the home-cinema system well, as that always puts a big GRIN on my chops!

    Setting it’s scene and laying out its premise can initially seem off putting if you view it in terms of the 80’s/90’s Trek mindset...its not episodic like those shows..but the payoff is that it gets to the fundamentals of what makes Trek “Trek” in a bold new way which, imo (unfortunately), put off some ‘stuck in their ways’ fans.
    A lot of the bad press came from this.

    I’d ask, what’s more “Trek” in concept than growing and developing?
    Just not in a JJ Abrahm’s Way...

    History will judge it well, judged as an entire series it’s Terrific and absolutely canon.
    The last 2 minutes of the final episode is, well, a TOS fans wet dream.
    And Season 2 continues this.

    Just like Breaking Bad, I envy anyone seeing it for the first time.
    Nods, unfortunately the Klingon bollocks has put many off, and I include myself in that. Anyway I will save this to Christmas.
    Regards Neil

    Just got a great deal, from Zoom, on two Tom Hanks films (special promotion, due to his upcoming birthday), for £9.99 each (brand new), which on Blu-ray 4k HDR normally sell for £39.99 each:





    Should be good... Saving Private Ryan is obviously a classic, and I haven't seen Angels & Demons, so should be good!

    Yeah, he's one of the best modern actors. Looking forward to seeing/hearing Saving Private Ryan as never before!

    Last DVD to arrive is 'Tuck and Dale vs Evil' 2010. Brilliant send up of slasher movies.

    Could so easily have been dreadful, but turned out to be a future classic. Love it!

    All to easy to dismiss a film like this, but don't .

    Just check the reviews: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1465522...ws?ref_=tt_urv
