2x12 (17/11/09 edition)
Last episode... except for two clips show specials.

Russell Howard's Good News
1x05 (19/11/09 edition, extended repeat)
The stand-up in this episode was so rubbish, I've deliberately tried (and succeeded) to forget his name. Which is a shame, because now I can't avoid him in future.
[You can (still) only see the shorter version on iPlayer.]


Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
[#80 in 100 Films in a Year 2009]
On Blu-ray, which isn't out 'til Monday. I (still) always love it when this happens.


Corduroy Skirts are a Sin by Julie Z
(from fbomb)
A wonderful protest (it's infinitely more important, and clever, than that title suggests). It would take too long to summarise, so, just go read it.

Collection Count

For those keeping count (ho ho), this is now the sixth week of Collection Count, which tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics.

The big acquisition this week is the latest Star Trek on Blu-ray, accompanied by bargain purchases of Ian McKellen's King Lear, Zodiac: Director's Cut and Dark City: Director's Cut to boost my BD numbers. But as I owned the last two of those on DVD -- Dark City twice, in fact -- their DVDs have now been discounted from the list (soon to be found on eBay), which does funny things to the DVD numbers. By which I mean that, though I've bought three new DVDs this week, the ultimate result is "down 2"!

Oh, it's a complicated malarkey, this DVD listing business.

Number of titles in collection: 1,087 [up 3]
Of which DVDs: 1,045 [down 2]
Of which Blu-rays: 42 [up 5]

Number of discs in collection: 2,669 [up 9]
Number of films in collection: 1,133 [up 8]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 3,716 [no change]

Statistic of the week:

Titles with audio commentary/ies or PIP tracks:
(61.3% of the collection)

See you next week, faithful reader.
