Back from the six-week break it took for the Fringe. (I know, my comments are frequently invaluable.)

Heroes cancellation: Source says NBC not moving forward with movie that will wrap up series by Lynette Rice

Title says it all. No surprise, really -- Heroes was a long way from popular by the end (hence why it got cancelled).

Torchwood writer John Fay excited by The New World, plus why killing Ianto was ‘right thing to do’ by XXNAPOLEONSOLO
(from scyfilove)
Again, the title more-or-less sums this up. It's an interview though, so there are a few more tidbits for fans to pick up on (though nothing about the plot of The New World, really, just the way it's being written and the point it starts from).

Collection Count

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

The numbers are all over the place this week, thanks to a couple of oversights and a new Blu-ray set that replaces four DVDs (it would've been more dramatic if another set had turned up to replace another four, but that's still in the post).

So, the number of titles go down, the number of DVDs goes down, and the number of Blu-rays goes up. The number of discs also goes down, thanks to BDs having plenty of room to house a two-disc-DVD's extras on a single disc. The number of films goes up slightly, due to a mistake last week, while the number of TV episodes goes down massively due to an error goodness-knows-when.

Ooh, exciting stuff.

Number of titles in collection: 1,214 [down 3]
Of which DVDs: 1,105 [down 4]
Of which Blu-rays: 109 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 2,971 [down 4]
Number of films in collection: 1,278 [up 2]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 4,181 [down 24]

Statistic of the week:

Number of Batman titles in the collection:
(0.99% of the total)

Inspired by upgrading my four two-disc '80s/'90s Batman film DVDs to the Blu-ray set (yep, that's the box set I was referring to) (and, if you're interested, I upgraded both the Nolan films early in my BD days), I thought I'd round up how many Batman titles I own. It's perhaps more than you'd think (though it would've been 3 greater a few days ago!)

See you next week, faithful reader.
