2x05 Just Act Normal [2nd watch]
One of Miranda's best episodes, I think. Must be odd for Mark Heap to be playing the most normal person in the room...
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

4x01 Episode 1
The Radio Times are wondering if this is beginning to get tired. On the evidence of this episode, not quite yet.
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

5x01 (29/8/11 edition)
It's a new series! So new, you'd never know if the episode guide didn't say it was. Quite why it is I have no idea. Well, it's presumably a production thing (note how Richard now says "up to the start of April 2011" whereas previously it was "to the start of January 2011", but... yeah...)

Torchwood: Long Time Dead by Sarah Pinborough
Chapters 10-11
I read the first of these Torchwood tie-ins in just under a fortnight; this second one's taken me two weeks already and I'm only a third of the way through. Oops.


2000 AD #1746
At least being behind on this means I can read the ECBT 2000AD reviews as soon as I'm done with the issue, rather than a couple of weeks later when they post them. This issue's lot can be read here, here, here, here and here. I disagree with their summaries, though -- didn't enjoy quite a lot of this Prog, even the stuff I normally like. Ho hum.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

A last-minute pile of post (literally, a few minutes ago) gives a decent boost to this week's numbers. Might get quieter for a bit now... but then, Star Wars is out soon...

Number of titles in collection: 1,375 [up 5]
Of which DVDs: 1,135 [up 3]
Of which Blu-rays: 240 [up 2]

Number of discs in collection: 3,405 [up 13]
Number of films in collection: 1,452 [up 8]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 5,112 [up 12]

See you next week, faithful reader.
