Archer The Complete season two Floyd County

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
 
    An award-winning, all-star cast, led by Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, and Maggie Smith, lights up this "buoyant comedy laced with genuine emotion." (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) When seven cash-strapped seniors decide to "outsource" their retirement to a resort in far-off India, friendship and romance blossom in the most unexpected ways. Smart, life-affirming and genuinely charming, THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL is a "true classic that reminds us that it's never too late to find love and a fresh beginning at any age." (Rex Reed, The New York Observer)




The Big Bang Theory (fifth season)

The show unavoidably makes use of previous sitcom combinations (the odd couple, the unfulfilled love-interest mismatch) but even if one manages to discern them they are used in such a fresh manner that all that is left is great entertainment !


Body of Proof. (Second Season)


It's a season filled with unique medical mysteries and shocking twists and turns. The team pulls together when a 6-year-old child is kidnapped, a lottery winner's luck takes an unfortunate turn, and one of Philadelphia's most despised citizens turns up dead, leaving an entire city of suspects. Meanwhile, Megan must also navigate the complicated new dynamic with her ex-husband and boss, Kate, while continuing to re-build her once-strained relationship with Lacey. Relive every astonishing case from Season Two.

 Dark shadows
 From the wonderfully warped imagination of Tim Burton comes the story of Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), a dashing aristocrat who is turned into a vampire by a jilted lover and entombed for two centuries. Emerging from his coffin into the world of 1972, he returns to his once-majestic home, only to the few dysfunctional descendants of the Collins family who remain. Determined to return his family name to its former glory, Barnabas is thwarted at every turn by his former lover - the seductive witch Angelique (Eva Green) - in this wildly imaginative" (Sam Hallenbeck, NBC-TV adventure).


  The Flight of the Phoenix
    Robert Aldrich's tense, 1965 drama about a plane crash in the Sahara is a unique psychological study of men in desperate circumstances. In this somewhat revisionist view of classic heroism, every character within the mixed lot is stretched to his limit, and individual efforts to brave the elements and hostile nomads are duly punished. What is left is collective will and ingenuity. One could call this an allegory for transcending Cold War madness, perhaps, but Aldrich (Kiss Me Deadly) makes this such a gritty, immediate experience that you can feel the desert sand in your teeth. Superb performances by James Stewart, Richard Attenborough, Hardy Krüger, Peter Finch, and the rest. --Tom Keogh   


  For Greater Glory theTrue Story of Cristiada
   A truly inspiring and deeply moving account of the events and characters struggling for Faith and Freedom in the little known persecution and Christero's War in 1920's Mexico. Superp cast and excellent production values. A must for people who believe that the real "Super Heroes" are not found in comic books but in the Grace, Faith and Courage of ordinary human beings who respond to the assault on their God Given Rights, and live and die for values that transend their mundane needs and desires. - amazon-



  Fringe. the complete (third season)
Synopsis: From the creative team behind Mission: Impossible 3, Alias and the upcoming Star Trek feature comes this incredible thriller about an unlikely trio who uncover a deadly mystery involving a series of unbelievable events that may be part of a larger and more disturbing pattern that blurs the line between the possible and the impossible. -amazon-
