Just Good Friends
1x06 Happy Birthday, Penny

Just William [2010]
1x03 The School Report
The first thing I've watched via iPlayer on my shiny new Wii. Hurrah!
(I realise the acquisition of a Wii is exactly the sort of thing this blog is designed to cover, but as I only set it up last night it hasn't become pertinent before now. And I doubt anyone anywhere is interested in the intricate details of my sensor bar setup debate.)

Les Mis at 25: Matt Lucas Dreams the Dream
Rather good, I thought -- a well-judged mix between the story of Les Mis's inception and reception, and following Matt Lucas as he prepares to appear in the 25th anniversary concert.

Polar Bear: Spy on the Ice
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

HMV to close 60 stores as sales and shares slump
(from BBC News)
No surprises here -- HMV have managed to build themselves a thorough reputation as shockingly overpriced, so it was only a matter of time before sales took a massive dip and they had to begin closing stores. Perhaps they'll ultimately go the way of Zavvi and its ilk and become online-only. I won't mind, their website is rather good.
