How I Met Your Mother
5x07 The Rough Patch
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

The Mentalist
2x20 Red All Over
[Watch it (again) on Demand Five.]

The Sandbaggers
3x01 All in a Good Cause [2nd watch]
It's been over a year since I last watched The Sandbaggers (sadly in that time just missing out on the third series' 30th anniversary, which would've been neat), so, as with Dexter before it, it made sense to re-watch this first episode.


Firefly: The Credits Sequence It Deserved! by Garrison Dean
(from io9)
I'm not sure "deserved" is the right word. "Would've had in the '80s" is the concept. Also, be amused by the dim-witted comments that miss the joke.

Survey provides hints on the new Back to the Future game by Ian Fisher
(from Shogun Gamer)
I saw this earlier in the week and somehow forgot to post it. Telltale -- makers of the forthcoming Back to the Future games, amongst many other great things (sadly not including the Doctor Who 'Adventure ' Games) -- have been surveying fans on what they'd like to see included. Which firstly provides hints at what might be in there, but, more importantly, "it’s nice to see a developer be upfront and ask gamers what they want to see". Too true.

Collection Count

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

This week, a Blu-ray replaces a two-disc DVD, a new single-disc DVD is added, and some more Blu-rays turn up to make it look like nothing unusual happened at all. Thrilling.

Number of titles in collection: 1,188 [up 3]
Of which DVDs: 1,095 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 93 [up 3]

Number of discs in collection: 2,923 [up 3]
Number of films in collection: 1,251 [up 3]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,111 [no change]

Statistic of the week:

Number of music DVDs:
(4.7% of the total)

I don't buy music DVDs too often, but (obviously) occasionally I do -- including this week, hence the inspiration for the stat. Do note that by this I don't mean Musicals, but concert DVDs, making-ofs attached to albums, that kind of thing.

See you next week, faithful reader.
