Follyfoot - Complete Series 2 - Region 2 (All Region Player Required)
Yeah, yeah, yeah ... the long wait for Season 2 is over and the next chapter is finally here.
Will Steve return to Dora and Follyfoot Farm and live happily ever after? Well, of course we know he does comes back because his name is in the credits (doh) but I honestly can't remember what happens after that. The early 70's is just too long ago for me, so I'll have to watch with baited breathe like everyone else.
Season 3 is yet-to-be released, so there is something to look forward to for later on as well.
The Adventures of Black Beauty - Complete Series 2 - Region 2 (All Region Player Required)
Another long-awaited new release is the complete second season of The Adventures of Black Beauty. This time, there is a new charactor to meet, a young orphan called Ned, but he and Squire Gordon soon clash when Ned is suspected of a burglary on the estate.
I'm really looking forward to watching this series as well, but I'm going to start with Follyfoot.
I hate it when all the good things arrive at the same time ... I never know where to start
While we are on the subject of British TV shows, I thought I had better remind everyone that the much-loved tv series "All Creatures Great and Small" has just been re-released on DVD.
I currently have all the Seasons from 1 to 5 plus an extra DVD which has the Specials on it. So far, Season 6 and Season 7 aren't available but I'm sure they will continue to trickle through over the next year or so.
If any of them are not visable on the website, it just means I've temporarily run out, so send me an email and I'll let you know as soon as they are back in stock.
While we are on the subject of Australia in the gold rush era, another recent addition is the TV Movie version of "Robbery Under Arms" starring Sam Neill and a host of other Aussie acting talents.
I thought this was a heap of fun. The bushranger anti-hero of the story Captain Starlight, is made out to be such a likeable rogue and his continuing remarkable escapes would give even Robin Hood a run for his money.
There is a sad moment when his stunning horse Rainbow is injured, so you might have to close your eyes for that, but all-in-all it's a heap of light-hearted fun. Great for the long-suffering horse-husbands too.
