Friday Night With Jonathan Ross
18x24 (9/7/10 edition)
So, as most viewers dig into Wossy's last-ever show (on TV) (on the BBC), I'm still watching last week's, as usual. Ho hum. Particularly good episode though, I thought.

That Mitchell and Webb Look
4x01 Episode 1
When the third series of Mitchell & Webb started (just over a year ago), I noted that I still hadn't watched the second series. And I still haven't. So... yeah...

A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Part 2, Chapters 1 - 2
Study in Scarlet certainly has a crazy structure. Holmes solves the case, catches the villain, declares he's finally ready to explain it all... and then it suddenly cuts to decades earlier in America. Time to be a trusting reader... (though I know more or less where it's going anyway).

Sherlock stuff

It's exciting, and so here I share it (taken direct from the official site).


Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss interview:

Collection Count

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

More funny number-flippery this week, as another Blu-ray film upgrade replaces two DVDs and a new TV DVD throws further spanners in the works. No doubt it looks much less confusing than it feels, and looks much less interesting than... no, it's not really interesting, is it.

Number of titles in collection: 1,188 [no change]
Of which DVDs: 1,094 [down 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 94 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 2,924 [up 1]
Number of films in collection: 1,251 [no change]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,121 [up 10]

Statistic of the week:

DVDs I never even watched before upgrading them to Blu-ray:

A couple of months back I counted the number of DVDs I'd upgraded to Blu-ray, but, despite some similarity, this number isn't that. No, inspired by the double-DVD-replacement I mentioned earlier, this is just the number of titles I've upgraded which I hadn't actually watched when I replaced them with a Blu-ray. Also known as the "list of stuff I really wasted money on" (doubly so in the couple of instances where I still own the DVD, for whatever reason).

See you next week, faithful reader.
