Recently we have branched out into entertainment reviews and we have another exciting DVD review with some of our members coming back to tell us what they thought of REBELLION series one, a five-part drama series that released on DVD through RLJ Entertainment October 5th.
REBELLION is a birth story; a violent, terrifying and disruptive period in history that saw the birth of modern Ireland.
This is a series based on events that took place in 1916 told through the eyes of a group of fictional characters.
REBELLION begins with the outbreak of World War One, which is expected to be a short and glorious campaign. Those hopes are soon dashed and extremism comes to the fore as social stability erodes.
Peoples reactions are extremely different. Some prioritise family loyalty while others takes sides. Some even take up arms, motivated by either noble ideals or opportunism and prepared to sacrifice everything for the dream of a better society.
The events of the turbulent times are shown through the eyes of men, women and children from Belfast, Dublin, Galway and London.
As is always the case there are winners and losers, loves and losses.
Each episode runs for 60 minutes.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
