Gilmore Girls
4x08 Die, Jerk
In which Rory gives an awful ballet a memorably scathing review, and has to face the consequences when the lead ballerina tracks her down. I feel there is some moral lesson to be gained here, especially in light of the content of my blogs...

2x07 In Absentia
"House with lawyers" continues on the road to cancellation with this episode half set in Mexico. It makes for a slight twist on the format, but the situations and dialogue are as cliché-ridden and humourless as ever.

4x01 The Special: Part I (aka Surreal World)
The BBC's post-9/11 spy show kicks off its fourth run with a two-parter, with a different style to most previous episodes: the case is a high-profile media-filling successful terrorist attack, rather than the low-key under-the-radar missions of previous seasons. Has Spooks jumped the proverbial shark?
