1x04 Killing Utne
[Watch it (again) on Demand Five.]

3x06 (9/3/10 edition) [mid-season finale]
Season finale? Mid-season finale? Who bloody knows. Who, indeed, cares.

6x11 The Down Low
Yay, House is back! And very funny it was too. Hurrah!


Clue (1985)
[#28 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]
This is brilliant. Why isn't it more widely known/loved?


Do We Know What a Best Picture Winner Looks Like Anymore? by Kyle Buchanan
(from Movie|Line)
Six Best Picture winners out of the last 10 that are Rather Unusual. But best of all is this quote right at the end:
[Hurt Locker vs. Avatar] isn’t David vs. Goliath — it’s Baby David vs. a Goliath who comes riding a dragon, armed with two bazookas.

LucasArts confirms MI2 special edition by Mark Langshaw
(from Digital Spy)

No, not that M:I-2, but the inestimably better Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge.

Following in the footsteps of last year's The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition, the sequel "will be available for PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and iPhone in the summer." Hurrah!

And in related good news, "LucasArts also revealed that The Secret Of Monkey Island Special Edition is bound for PSN and Mac OS". Couldn't give a monkeys about PSN (in fact, I'd not even heard of it before -- fyi, it's a PS3 thing), but Mac OS is good -- no need to run a bloody PC emulator or try to play it on my iPhone. Double yay! It can be pre-ordered (exclusively -- and, irritatingly, only in the US) here.
