I never watched Inspector Morse, but this feature-length prequel was pretty good, and I'm assured it was faithful and fitting to its inspiration too. My guess about the solution was completely, epically wrong.

The Mentalist
4x05 Blood and Sand

The One...
1x01 Lenny Henry
Inspired by the rather good The One Ronnie special from last Christmas (well, the Christmas-before-last now, isn't it), here a selection of other older comedians do a similar thing: a bit of stand-up, a few sketches with Younger Things, and so on. Lenny isn't as good as Ronnie, but some of the sketches were pretty decent nonetheless.

Onion News Network
1x05 The Trial of TR-425

5x38 (5/1/12 edition)

Rhod Gilbert and the Cat That Looked Like Nicholas Lyndhurst
Didn't intend to watch this, but stumbled across it a few minutes in and left it on. I have a bit of a love/hate opinion on Rhod Gilbert's comedy (more of the former, really, but I don't go out of my way to watch him), and this was rather good.
