Christ on a bike, where has this week gone?! It feels like only yesterday (well, the day before yesterday, if I'm honest) that I was watching the first Joanna Lumley.

And I haven't watched
Misfits for a week and a half, but it feels like less time than I paused between episodes one & two and three, which was only six days. (I know, you're fascinated to know this.)

I think my body clock needs winding...

The Graham Norton Show
10x01 (21/10/11 edition)
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

The Great British Bake Off
2x11 Revisited [season finale]
Not revisiting the just-finished series two, but looking back to series one. Indeed, I'm quite glad I didn't watch the first series in a way, because this was just a recap/highlights with a few new comments and a couple of "where are they now"s.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Joanna Lumley's Greek Odyssey
Episode 2 (of 4)
[Watch it (again) on ITV Player.]

Brad Bird Explains Why We Haven’t Seen an Incredibles Sequel Yet by Kevin Melrose
(from Spinoff Online at Comic Book Resources)
Because he doesn't have an idea for one, essentially. Which is fine -- I loved The Incredibles and would love a sequel, but there's no point if it's just for the sake of some easy cash.

The Science and Future of 3D Films, With Legend3D Founder, COO and CTO Dr. Barry Sandrew
Parts 1, 2 & 3
by Mark Hughes
(from Forbes)
This interview/polemic has an irritatingly fawning tone and a loose interpretation of some facts -- see in particular Sandrew and Hughes' dubious analysis of some figures at the bottom of part 2 page 1 -- but it's nonetheless interesting thanks to its inside-the-industry perspective.
