I'm interested in getting some weights. Not sure how heavy to go and not a ton of room, so I'm looking at adjustables. But kettle bells or barbells? Is the Bowflex brand over rated? Are adjustable generally safe and not going to fall of onto my toes or something?

Bands work very well and you can get a complete workout in a small area. Bands come in different weights and they're not too expensive

Wow, they are inexpensive. So barbell exercises can be done with these just as effectively?

You could use bands to replace weights, but mixing it up is also really good. Tony Horton, P90X uses bands as a replacement for weight and a pull up bar
