Battlestar Galactica [2004]
2x01 Scattered
Feels like ages since I watched BSG, but it's only been a week. That's what happens when you race through [the equivalent of] 17 episodes in 7 days. Week on, week off -- seems like a good viewing plan. Not that I expect to get through season two in a week.

The Mentalist
2x18 Aingavite Baa
[Watch it (again) on Demand Five.]


First Look: Mad Men season 4 poster by Michael Ausiello
(from The Ausiello Files at EW.com)
Mad Men has a history of thematically dense, striking, iconic posters, and this latest is no exception, conveying the new state of affairs and new themes of the forthcoming fourth season. Now just have to wait until it reaches UK shores. (And by "have to" I mean "choose to", of course.)

Most Magical Things to Buy in Hogsmeade (and Some to Avoid) by Chris Kohler
(from Underwire at Wired)
Not a list of things mentioned in the books or films or whathaveyou, but stuff you can now actually purchase in the recently-opened Harry Potter theme park. It mentions not only the 'cool' stuff, but also some of the misguided tat on offer.
(If you're interested, Underwire has several other articles about the park's opening.)
