4x04 Episode 4
[Watch it (again) on ITV Player.]

Yes Minister
1x01 Open Government [2nd watch]
Got the complete series of this for Christmas. Not seen it for an absolute age, but it's still brilliant. (Also not sure how much of it I've actually seen before, or how often, so those "2nd watch"es may be a little fluid and based on anything I happen to remember.)


Exam (2009)
[#2 in 100 Films in a Year 2011]
So far this year I've watched two films from 2009. Neither of them were on my 50 I missed in 2009 list, sadly.

Sherlock Holmes (2009)
[2nd watch]
This was #49 in 100 Films 2010, and went on to be listed as my eighth favourite film of the year. Having watched it again, I wonder if I should've placed it even higher.


The best books of 2011 by Alison Flood
Yes, you read that right -- the year that's only 15 days old. Films and games have these "what's to come this year" lists all the time, so why not books?, I suppose, the theory. Not sure it works.
(Came to my attention because it mentions the forthcoming new James Bond novel, still code-named Project X though apparently being launched in Dubai on Monday, so maybe we'll learn the real title then.)
