Game of Thrones
2x04 Garden of Bones
Sometimes, you can't resist racing on to find out the result of a cliffhanger; and sometimes, an episode's so good it seems wrong to sully it by going straight on to another. This is definitely a case of the latter. It feels like some things must be coming to a head next episode, but it's the only one of the entire season without a commentary track -- if it is pivotal, what an odd choice to skip it.

The Last Leg
2x09 (29/3/13 edition) [season finale]
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

6x46 (16/5/12 edition)
Yeah, if I watch a daily game show fortnightly, I'll catch up in no time!

Veronica Mars
1x03 Meet John Smith
I liked the first two episodes, but this one really clicked for me.
