Ooh, lots today...

2x09 (27/10/09 edition)

Defying Gravity
1x03 Threshold
Dear God, please save us from "sci-fi for women". (Not that there's anything wrong with women liking sci-fi, but foisting Hollyoaks-level soapy plotting onto a promising sci-fi/fact idea is incredibly disappointing.)

Friday Night with Jonathan Ross
17x08 (23/10/09 edition)
If anyone knows where I can get hold of Tim Minchin's specially written song, please let me know -- it was brilliant!

How I Met Your Mother
2x15 Lucky Penny
The kind of episode HIMYM does so well. Here, the story jumps increasingly far back in time to outline a months-long chain of cause and effect that stems from a penny to Ted losing out on a major job.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks
23x05 (28/10/09 edition)
Frank Skinner makes for the most laid-back host yet. Not sure if that's good or bad...

Ross Noble's Australian Trip
Part 4 (of 6)
Part 5 (of 6)
"Landrover on a Pole." Ah, Australia.
[Watch Part 4 and Part 5 (again) on Demand Five.]

The Sarah Jane Adventures
3x05 The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith Part One
One of the best yet, packed with wonderful humour. Though the best bit is surely to come tomorrow, of course.
