Is there a legal requirement that press releases must always describe HD as "glorious high definition"? How about another adjective, at least.

Collection Count

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

Despite another 24 hour delay, it's back to the teeny-tiny increases this week: one new DVD, and one new BD-that-replaces-a-DVD half cancelling it back out.

Number of titles in collection: 1,183 [up 1]
Of which DVDs: 1,094 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 89 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 2,895 [up 3]
Number of films in collection: 1,246 [no change]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,051 [up 6]

Statistic of the week:

Number of titles unrated:
(11.4% of the total)

Having previously done titles rated U, 18, and 15 (i.e. the lowest, highest, and largest-in-my-collection of the UK ratings), the only one with any significance left is "unrated". These are titles that are either E (for Exempt) in the UK, or other discs that are somehow allowed out unclassified, or some of my US imports, where ratings on DVDs aren't compulsory.

See you next week, faithful reader.
