10 O'Clock Live
1x05 (17/2/11 edition)
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

Due South
3x01 Burning Down the House [2nd watch]
This is the one episode of Due South I'm absolutely certain I've seen, because I remember not approving of the new Ray at the time. Now, I also don't approve of the new opening theme music or the new closing theme music. New Ray -- played, incidentally, by Callum Keith Rennie, he of a thousand recognisable guest/recurring roles since -- isn't as good as Old Ray, true, but he's not too bad.

Extraordinary Dogs
1x03 Myth and Reality
Aww, look at all the cute doggy-woggies!
[Watch it (again) on Demand 5.]

7x10 Carrot or Stick

Just Good Friends
2x07 Goodbye Again [season finale]

The Killing [aka Forbrydelsen]
1x09 Day 9
There's a bit of an "entering phase two" feeling about this episode, as a lot of long-running threads are closed off, giving rise to new ones that may well drive the rest of the series. Still over half to go though...
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

The Day the Movies Died by Mark Harris

Interesting article about the (potential) death of American movies.

Internet-savvy Firefly fans fly back into the fight by Doug Gross
(from Geek Out! at CNN)
Hard to believe anything will come of this plan to revive Firefly, but it's impressive how much coverage it gained so quickly.
