4x10 Lost Boys

Grandma's House
1x06 The day Simon finally found the strength to accept that his mother was getting married [season finale]
Perhaps not Grandma's House's finest (half-)hour, but still an amusing episode. I hope we get more.
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

Roger & Val Have Just Got In
1x06 The Valerie Step [season finale]
An excellent final episode to an excellent series. I hope we get more.
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]


The Band Wagon (1953)
[#91 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]


The Death Star of the 1930s (and other great retro scifi diagrams) by Cyriaque Lamar
(from io9)
A gallery of illustrations from the '30s, some of which are rather spectacular in their own retro way. I particularly like the A City On series, though the Future Ocean Liner appears to be amazingly prescient -- I think more-or-less everything it suggests has since come to pass.
