    After four months of using this Box Set, I am extremely pleased with the purchase as someone new to yoga.

    The Box Set consists of 3 DVDs – Essential Youga For Inflexible People, Yoga For Stress Relief and AM PM Yoga. Needless to say there is a lot of variety between the videos and plenty to work with.

    The Inflexible title has routines that range from 5 to 10 minutes to up to around an hour or so (for use as you get better/stronger) and includes ways of making things earlier as you learn.

    The Stress Relief has a TON of poses and workouts to help you target problem areas, such as headaches, and is very good and effective.

    The AM PM focuses more on things to help you energize and relax. The teachers provide enough verbal cues and reminders on positioning and breathing so that I feel that I am really learning how to do things properly at a good pace.

    Just love it.

    First DVD in set has good routines with good dialogue by the instructor – not too much repetition of the moves – this 1st DVD is referred to as “AM/PM Yoga for Beginners” w/10 plus “Easy to Follow Routines”. For someone who is only interested in the routines, I would delete the Dalai Lama’s talk on meditation, not really needed for intense yoga practice.

    2nd DVD titled “Yoga for Stress Relief” does not focus on too many yoga moves – the titled selections don’t indicate a break in the supposed 20+ routines – also too much intro of “ocean waves” – In proper yoga techniques the instructor (in background) should be saying “inhale” and “exhale” not breath in and out, otherwise after trying the moves, I agree the routines for stress do work, with the exception of being too much pressure on the back of the neck.

    Last DVD titled “Essential Yoga for Inflexible people” has an unbeleivably long routine which went past an hour – didn’t really see any break in this routine, can get tiring after a while holding some of the poses for too long. Otherwise the content is good and acceptable. Instructor takes too many breaks in explanations, needs an easier and lighter flow to her narration.

    Otherwise the set is still a good choice for variety of yoga practice.

    A good collection of yoga to handle whatever level you are.

    Some real good basics to start you out (Inflexible) while other two DVDs provide routines that can be used for beginners and help target things some more.

    Great value for what is included.

    The videos are great! These are put together just for beginners and are not difficult for those individuals who may have difficulty with standard Yoga poses and positions. I would recommend it for anyone who is a beginner, wants to work on stretching, relaxing, and getting their morning energy for the day. The narration is soothing and done very well.

    This set of DVDs covers everything you need – if you are starting out and need extra work, to targeting issues to having workouts to wake up and go to sleep to.

    I borrowed one of the DVDs for a couple of weeks from a friend who has been practicing a few years and who started out with the one to increase flexibility. (She also has the other DVDs and uses them all the time) This DVD is very good to get you started if you have not done yoga or are early in your yoga practice, really helped me get a basis with assistance and then move along.

    Stress Relief is usuable by pretty much anyone with routines designed to help stress issues, digestion, hips, neck and so on. The relaxtion routines are easy to do and very effective. Though Stress relief has some routines for morning and evening, AM/PM has a wide variety of routines for the morning and evening.

    I was able to mix and match as I worked through things and there is a ton of variety. Will be able to use this for a long, long time.

    As of March 2010 the American releases of this wonderful series are running behind the UK by nine episodes. You can buy these great shows now from Amazon UK at about the same price including the shipping.Why wait over a year for the US release?

    Actor Neil Dudgeon will be the new “Inspector John Barnaby” when John Nettles retires. Yes the character is cousin to Tom Barnaby.Maybe some of those new series will be released here by 2015.

    UPDATE: This DVD set not only has the 3 episode presentations, very well done, as always, but it has a bonus disc “Super Sleuths,” a documentary about the show’s first decade which is quite interesting and welcome to even the most avid of fans. The bonus disc is a duplicate for anyone who has purchased the 17 mystery super box of “MIDSOMER MURDERS: BARNABY’S CASEBOOK”. That set had two bonus discs and Super sleuths is one of those. For those buying this series one set at a time, the bonus disc will be a delightful added feature to your Midsomer Murders entertainment. So…Set 15 is a 4-disc pack, not 3. A value, and the episodes are suspensefully death-defying.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Midsomer Murders has a proven record and will provide any British mystery lover with appealing entertainment. True also for British murder or British crime seekers. This series is at the top of its genre.

    Rampant, unstoppable murder in one county, mystifyingly delicious making it comparable to Poirot and Foyle’s War. DCI Barnaby (John Nettles) has taken on the fictional Midsomer County murder abundance, some call it massacre, since 1997 and this set offers more. Multiple killing chaos is the norm in Midsomer. But you’ll be booking a flight to London (filming done in rural hamlets just outside London) to have tea with scones in the green of some village, excitedly waiting for the next bludgeoning murder (always solved).

    Regulars lighten the murder storyline with homespun gentleness, some comedy through expressions, statements, and unusual additions to crime scenes.

    Show guest stars make episode a fresh and dynamic. With every episode, predicting Who Dun It? is impossible. Just try!

    Multiple murders in every episode are a trademark, intended from the very beginning, by the writers/producers to make Midsomer Murders unique even by British standards. No foul language issues, but plenty of good family murder mystery–the murder is almost never seen, just the moments up to the kill, and then of course the body. How many ways can a person be murdered? Midsomer keeps finding new ones. Part of the humor, actually, is the excessive number of murders in a lovely rural/village setting that could count dastardly deaths per sq. ft. But the delightful setting, sets, scenic environment is enticing, drawing you into enjoyment of yet another murder. The set is comparable to “Foyles War: Series 1-5 Dunkirk to VE-Day” (see my review) with comedy, scenery, and murder spoof replacing the home-front history famous in Foyle’s murder mysteries.

    A Midsomer Murder is like a travelogue, but better. You’ll want to set yourself down in a town green, at a location like Badger’s Wood, and sip tea in quality china, just waiting on a few body parts to drop from the sky. No the writers are much to cleaver for such a simple murder as that. This series was based on books by novelist Caroline Graham, but have gone beyond those book without loosing the flavor in the continuing productions of this series. There are many yet to see the DVD light of day. How will it ever end, if it will? Barnaby discovering his own murder, killed twice? Then who will find justice for him?

    I too have been frustrated that US release of many Brit series lags way behind actual production and British airing. Midsomer Murders and Inspector Lewis are what, 2 or 3 years before you can buy the dvd, though they air in many areas on PBS stations. You can get them all on disc long before general availablity by purchasing them from amazon.co.uk. Yes they are Region 2 discs which will not work in your region 1 player, but a Region FREE player can be bought from Amazon.com (that’s right .com right here in USA) for under $50. Then at Amazon.co.uk a vast array of dvd product (Judge John Deed, Peak Practice, to name a couple and lots more) which we anglophiles and perhaps anglos as well hunger for is available in many cases at a much better price than here and shipping just isn’t that much more. I have a nice stock on hand for when we are between netflix arrivals and when the very latest Midsomer Murders or Inspector Lewis is out.

    I have heard that when John Nettles retires from this series that Midsomer Murders will continue with some old cast and a new lead detective. If it can be done as classily as the producers have managed “Lewis” (or “Inspector Lewis” in the USA) as a follow on to Morse then we can have something to look forward to. But who will she be?

  9. Review by Shopper for Midsomer Murders: Set 15
    Rating:
    While I am thrilled that in 2010 Acorn is giving us an extra release of Midsomer Murders, I am disappointed that the second set of the year only includes three episodes:

    Ep. 60 Shot at Dawn (or. broadcast Jan 1, 08)

    Ep. 61 Blood Wedding (or. broadcast Jul 6, 08)

    Ep. 62 Left For dead (or. broadcast Jul 20, 08)

    Which means in the US we are still running two years behind the original broadcast. Still, the consolation is that in Blood Wedding we finally get to see Cully marry her Simon. And as a special treat, there is a guest appearance from Gavin Troy (Barnaby’s original sidekick)! I think the series did loose a little heart and humour with Gavin’s departure and I will be very happy to see this character return, if only for one episode.

    A side note: August 19th, 2010 will be John Nettles’ last day of filming on Midsomer Murders. His run as Barnaby will end with episode 82, likely not due in the US until 2013, ghhrr… Reportedly, DS Ben Jones and Dr Bullard are staying on. ITV is mum on who is replacing Nettles, though wild rumours are circulating that it could even possibly be a she, rather then a he…

    UPDATE (Feb 10, 2010): Nettles’ replacement has finally been revealed. I have included the details in Set 16 review.

    PS: For those new to this British masterpiece, Midsomer Murders is a long running “who done it”, based on the novels of Caroline Graham, starring John Nettles (of the Bergerac fame) as the unflappable Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby. The series is set in the fictional Misomer County, which comprises of many cosy, rural villages, where wealthy and poor alike seem to do each other in at an average rate of three to four bodies per episode. The series has a worldwide following, not in the least due to the creative and macabre ways in which the MM victims are typically dispatched.
