How I Met Your Mother
3x15 The Chain of Screaming

Wallander [British]
2x01 Faceless Killers
It's a little weird going back to 'our' Wallander having seen so many of the Swedish ones -- so much more stylised, moodier, trying to be in some way unique. I guess Sweden don't have the proliferation of police procedurals filling their TV schedules that we do. Both versions are very good, however, just in slightly different ways.

We Need Answers
2x06 The Sun
Once again I'm left wondering about BBC's policy to series links on the iPlayer, as I've missed two episodes of this due to the assumption it had one (I swear I saw it on episode one...)

His Girl Friday (1940)
[#2 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]

Suspiria DVD trailer
More of a featurette extract than a trailer (in fairness, it says this relatively early on). So interesting it's convinced me (along with the DVD Times review) to take a punt on the new Blu-ray.


Moulin Rouge named best film of decade by Marcell Minaya
(from Digital Spy)
I think Moulin Rouge is brilliant, and very underrated in some circles, but this is a huge surprise.
