Faulks on Fiction
Part 1 The Hero
An interesting look at the history of the novel. Faulks makes for a good presenter, especially in the way he's able to stay still (as opposed to flapping his arms around and jiggling his head all over the place) when he talks, something some of his interviewees would benefit from learning. That said, someone needs to buy the cameraman a tripod -- why must the image wobble and vibrate when someone's just being interviewed?! And it all gets a bit too up itself and Literary toward the end. But that aside, quite good.

The Great Outdoors
1x03 Episode 3 [season finale]
Series finale? Not sure. Would be nice if they made more.

7x09 Larger Than Life

How I Met Your Mother
6x08 Natural History
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

Not Going Out
4x06 Life on Mars Bars [season finale]
Looks like Not Going Out might be over -- again -- because apparently Tim Vine wants to leave. Considering how central he is to the series, that may well be the end. Again.
