Part 3 (of 5)
[Watch it (again) on ITV Player.]

Defying Gravity
1x05 Rubicon
The scheduling of this is arguably more interesting than the plot (a two-week break before the next episode, says voiceover lady, though the schedule suggests the next ep is on late-night this Saturday). That said, it was good to see Goss finally getting a dressing down from someone over what happened on Mars (or, indeed, anything).
Incidentally, it turns out the series has been cancelled (seems this was known the best part of a month ago; guess I should've paid more attention), so we'll never get to see the whole mission. Yeah, the show's a bit rubbish, but it's mainly a shame they wasted such an excellent idea.

Whedon reveals Dollhouse disappointment

Ever-falling ratings and relatively low critical standing? Why, I thought it would be around for years!
No, I think this wins the award for Least Surprising TV-Related News Of The Year. Perhaps even The Decade. Or just Ever.

(from Digital Spy)
Finally, some idea about how Ridley Scott intends to bring board game Monopoly to the big screen.

Xbox gamer 'gutted' after cut off
(from BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat)
Serves him bloody right. I urge you to read it -- the lack of sympathy you'll feel is quite astonishing, and likely quite opposite to what he expects.
