How I Met Your Mother
4x12 Benefits
4x13 Three Days of Snow
The second episode once again demonstrates HIMYM's skill at narrative subversion and cleverness, which is always fun.
[Watch these episodes on 4oD from 25th February and 4th March (probably).]

Mad Men
3x04 The Arrangements
And another exemplary episode of this series too.
[Watch it again in HD on iPlayer.]


Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)
[#16 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]


And The Hits Keep On Comin’…
(from Progress City, U.S.A.)
Disney seem to be cancelling every animated film they have on the go. Why?

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

After last week's tiny update, this one is rather more packed, including a load that arrived on Friday (hence the 24 hour delay. Again.) Most exciting this week are a few releases that aren't even out yet: Blu-rays of Up (out on Monday in a variety of editions), M (out February 22nd on Blu-ray and DVD), and City Girl (out February 22nd on Blu-ray only -- a first?) Always love getting things pre-release.

Number of titles in collection: 1,146 [up 10]
Of which DVDs: 1,077 [up 3]
Of which Blu-rays: 69 [up 7]

Number of discs in collection: 2,799 [up 15]
Number of films in collection: 1,212 [up 10]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 3,882 [up 6]

Statistic of the week:

Total running time of collection (approx.):
194 days, 4 hours, and 43 minutes.
(Up 3 days, 8 hours, and 55 minutes from last month.)

See you next week, faithful reader.
