The most significant new character is Jackie Sharp, Frank's successor as House Whip, who soon finds herself embroiled in Frank's plans.

The Hour Series 1 / 2 Discs 600 Baht
A six part series that was billed, in the run up to its transmission, as Britain having a go at doing its own spin on Mad Men, The Hour is actually a show with an identity of its own, and quite different from the hit American drama. It certainly has some similarities, but as it turns out, tonally its really quite different.
The Hours main attraction, as it turns out, is its cast. Putting The Wire star Dominic West at the heart of the drama proves to be a masterstroke, and hes ably supported by a high calibre company of acting talent, including Juliet Stevenson, Anna Chancellor and Ben Whishaw. Its West who drives the drama forward, though, with a trademark skilled central performance. It helps that hes at the heart of much that happens with the show, too.
What drew the initial Mad Men comparisons was the setting for The Hour. This is a show surrounding a BBC news programme being made in 1956, which happens to be the time of the Suez Crisis. Behind the scenes of the show, theres sexual politics, ambitions, and pressures from all directions. And that, mixed with a strong attention to period detail, helps make The Hour an engaging drama.
Ripper Street Series 2 / 3 Discs 700 Baht
I must admit - I am very impressed by Ripper Street. It had breathed new life in to BBC drama - and shows that BBC really knows what they're doing. Firstly, I think the programme works because of the backset - it was a genius idea to present a drama coming out of the "Ripper phase", and looking at how Law & Order continued after such a huge embarrassment. The drama cleverly uses historical accuracies to create convincing and realistic storylines, while at the same time it adds in dramatized sections to create effect and tension. A mixture of this works really well and creates believable, but also intriguing episodes.
REVIEW: I think that Series 2 is even better than Series 1, as because as well as Ripper it is introducing new key ideas and themes (all of which are historically accurate); including the attitudes towards the Irish, homosexuality and the fight for female equality (the rise of the early suffragette movement). All of this has really allowed the programme to move forward and therefore has ensured that the programme has not become dry. As well as the amazing plot and storyline the show is helped by having an amazing cast list, including Matthew McFayden who convincingly plays D.I Reid - he shows the character as upstanding and respectable while also allowing his darker side to lay mysteriously in the background (for example his portrayal of his adultery and his blaming for the disappearance of his daughter and subsequent mental breakdown of his wife).

Father Brown Series 1 / 3 Discs 700 Baht
'Father Brown' is the best B.B.C. television series in a long while, I love everything about this series, from the opening titles and theme music, to the beautiful village and the programme's wonderful cast. The series stars Mark Williams, Sorcha Cusack, Nancy Carroll and Alex Price. The main characters are Father Brown (Williams), a non judgemental, local Catholic priest, who is something of an amateur sleuth and has a natural gift for solving murders, by his side is Mrs.McCarthy (Cusack), the gossipy, parish secretary, who on the surface appears a bit waspish, but is really kind hearted (and bakes a great batch of award winning strawberry scones), the wealthy Lady Felicia (Carroll), who has an eye for the men, (much to Mrs.McCarthy's horror) and Sid (Price), a bit of a petty criminal and an artful dodger. Each episode begins with peaceful, tranquil surroundings, however the tranquility is soon interupted by a murder, Inspector Valentine (Hugo Speer) arrives at the scene and a police investigation gets under way, meanwhile Father Brown, with his umbrella and trusty bicycle, starts his own investigating and soon solves the murder cases, much to the annoyance (combined with admiration) of Valentine and his replacement Inspector Sullivan (Tom Chambers).

Saving Grace / 1 Disc 300 Baht
A sweet, silly and sincere comedy, Saving Grace resembles a Cheech and Chong pothead comedy, only instead of two scruffy lowlifes the film is about an aimless Scottish gardener and a middle-aged widow with a green thumb. Grace (Brenda Blethyn of Secrets and Lies and Little Voice) has just discovered that her recently deceased husband has left her with an enormous debt when her gardener Matthew (Craig Ferguson, The Big Tease) asks her to help him tend to his small, personal-use marijuana crop. Grace soon realises that they can turn her greenhouse into a hydroponics laboratory and turn out a profitable crop--if only they can keep the local constables at bay and then find a dealer to sell the stuff. Saving Grace has well-developed characters, intelligent dialogue, a charming and capable cast and clean, clear direction. But at heart it's still a marijuana comedy, with most of its funniest moments coming from the silly, stoned behaviour of elderly ladies and others. Nothing wrong with that, and Blethyn and Ferguson give the film a strong anchor. The ending goes a little over the top, but most of the film is well-grounded in genuine human behaviour. A sub-plot about Matthew's girlfriend's pregnancy is treated with respect and integrity.

Doctor Black Mysteries / 3 Discs 700 Baht
Doctor Blake, a keeper of secrets, a solver of mysteries. The Doctor Blake Mysteries is an original, period murder mystery series, starring Craig McLachlan as the maverick town doctor Lucien Blake - a risk-taker, he's impulsive and not afraid to upset the status quo. Doctor Lucien Blake left Ballarat as a young man. But now, he finds himself returning, to take over his dead father's medical practice. And one of the unwanted duties his father left him is the on-call role of police surgeon. Set in the old gothic gold rush town of Ballarat in 1959. The wealth that built its grand architecture long gone - but not the mysteries, murder and deceit that linger beneath the surface of its faded glory.
REVIEW: Forget Australian soaps if that is what you think Oz TV is all about. This is superb - set in the late 1950's this show is a cross between Foyles War and Endevour Morse, but with the local doctor solving the crimes as a police surgeon. Fantastic acting all-round with characters you will love - an era when things were more gentler and polite - or at least that is the perception of things as they keep a stiff upper lip and maintain dignity despite the horrors of coming out of the 2nd world war, watch and be thoroughly enthralled.

The Blue Planet / 4 Discs 800 Baht
Its hard to rain too many superlatives on The Blue Planet, surely one of the finest and most fascinating nature documentaries ever made. But nonetheless, were going to try.
Long in the making, the idea behind the show was to, using some cutting-edge technology, film previously unseen areas of the ocean, and to investigate life beneath the waves. And in doing so, it pretty much encompasses the full spectrum of creature size. From the staggering, gigantic whale of the first episode, through the miniscule life thats documented as the programme progresses, its a jaw-dropping experience.
Its also a very, very accessible one. Thanks to a diligent, warm narrative from Sir David Attenborough, theres plenty of fact married up to the sheer spectacle of The Blue Planet, although in many ways the stunning photography almost needs no accompaniment. Its timeless work, too, with immense rewatch value, uncovering both life thats never been photographed previously while charting the habits of the more familiar. Icing The Blue Planets cake is a series of short pieces documenting just how some of the incredible pictures were captured, and these are almost as interesting as the main feature.
Enough of those superlatives, though. Because The Blue Planet simply demands to be seen and enjoyed. Prepare, like many before you, to be mesmerised.

Absolutely Fabulous Complete Collection / 10 Discs 980 Baht
Absolutely Fabulous was first broadcast in 1992 and became an instant hit. Originally a sketch on the French and Saunders Show, Jennifer Saunders saw its potential and created one of the most ground-breaking and debauched comedies on British TV. Centred around the hip London fashion scene the series follows Edina (Saunders) and Patsy (Joanna Lumley), two women who refuse to grow up and are constantly on a mission to lose weight, gorging themselves with cocaine and/or champagne, endlessly throwing parties (or throwing up at parties), and sporting outrageous outfits which were the height of fashion at the time--honestly, Sweetie. The superb comic performances offered star status to Julia Sawalha as Edina's straight-laced daughter and Jane Horrocks as the sublimely dippy Bubble, and reinvented the careers of Joanna Lumley and June Whitfield. Saunders meanwhile secured her status as one of the top female comedians Britain has ever produced. Although its consciously chic clothing looks a little dated now, its mad characterisations endure and the jokes remain as hilariously slick and apt as ever.
Ab Fab remains a landmark in TV since it was the first time that female comedians and writers had had the freedom and exposure to satirise problems close to their own heart, from their own perspective. With Feminist writers claiming that the ideals of feminism were dead in the 1990s and that female concerns were moving in the wrong direction--towards the "Laddette Culture"--and reports claiming that careers were taking a central role, forcing motherhood onto the back-burner, the series sought to embody and satirise these new supposedly "female" characteristics. As the show continued to grow in popularity both in Britain and the States, plans were made to transfer the formula to America. However, as with many other great British series, the content was considered too risqué for American audiences due to the amount of sex and drug references. Thus domestic audiences breathed a sigh of relief that their beloved Ab Fab would stay forever British to the core.
A bit of Fry and Laurie - Complete Collection / 5 Discs 900 Baht
Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie were among the most successful acts of the alternative comedy show Saturday Live/Friday Night Live and after a Christmas pilot in 1987, the BBC commissioned a series in 1989.
My father wouldn't have a television in the house, so we used to gather round every night and watch it on the lawn.
Fry and Laurie explored a seemingly inexhaustible list of subjects with a delicious turn of phrase and elaborate wordplay. The hilarity-included regular acts such as not so super spy Tony Mercheson and his boss Control, yuppies, John and Peter, as well as the concluding cocktail recipe to the accompaniment of Mr Music with plenty of Vox Pops.
With four brilliant series of great satire, comic genius and an hilarious use of language, Fry and Laurie are definitely at the top of the comedy tree.
Dad's Army Complete Collection / 12 Discs 980 Baht
Dad's Army was created and written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, the duo who were also responsible for 'Allo 'Allo, Hi-De-Hi! and It Ain't Half Hot, Mum . Perry came up with the idea when it struck him that people had forgotten the role that the Home Guard played in the Second World War.
The sitcom followed the farcical exploits of the Walmington-on-Sea platoon, led by Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe) and it ran on TV from 1968 to 1977. The story begins in May 1940 with Sir Anthony Eden's plea to men to come forward as Local Defence Volunteers. In the fictional town of Walmington, the pompous bank manager George Mainwaring declares himself commanding officer ("Times of peril always bring great men to the fore,") and gathers together a loyal but incompetent platoon of local men to defend the town against invasion.
Although reviewers initially criticised the series for mocking the Home Guard, the plotline was surprisingly realistic. The real Home Guard lacked uniforms and weapons at first, and the huge influx of volunteers meant that the organisation was quite shambolic. The age limit for recruits was supposed to be 65, but this was not enforced to begin with, allowing First World War veterans in their seventies and eighties to creep in.
Dad's Army had its own elderly, incontinent Private Godfrey, played by Arnold Ridley, who had fought in WW1 himself. The actor was seriously injured at the Somme, rendering his left arm almost useless, and leaving him susceptible to blackouts.
Among the rest of the cast were Clive Dunn (who simultaneously drew in a different audience as the chart-topping pop star 'Grandad'), Hattie Jacques' former husband, John le Mesurier and a baby-faced Ian Lavender, who has since resurfaced as Derek in EastEnders.
This box set features the entire collection of surviving episodes of the programme. Includes all nine surviving episodes from Series 1 and 2 and the complete series 3-9 and the Christmas Specials.

The Jury / 2 Discs 600 Baht
One of the most impressive series to appear on British television for a long time, The Jury is an invigorating shot in the arm for the crime genre. The premise is simple, focusing on the one part of the legal process that has hitherto been largely ignored: the jury. By concentrating on seven of the 12--their home lives and the pressure that such an undertaking places on them--this six-part series brings the courtroom action into sharper focus. The series revolves around the unfolding (and timely) trial of a young Sikh schoolboy accused of a racially motivated murder. Expertly steered by Derek Jacobi and Anthony Sher as the opposing lawyers, and allowed to develop over five-plus hours of screen time, the twists and turns of the case are riveting, and the outcome impossible to predict.
The seven interconnecting stories of the jurors are equally enthralling and would be more than enough to sustain most series on their own. Combine them with the courtroom action and you have a superb legal drama. But the depth of characterisation and quality of performance from all the cast is what gives The Jury its true edge. And thats what will ensure repeated viewing even after the initial suspense of the verdict has subsided.
