Black Mirror
1x03 The Entire History of You [season finale]
Another bloody good episode; possibly the best one, in fact. So that's three for three -- impressive stuff. I hope this gets a re-commission, because intelligent TV sci-fi is much needed and always welcome.
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

The Graham Norton Show
10x10 (6/1/12 edition)
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

Perfect Couples
1x12 Perfect Pants
The first of two episodes shown only online in the US. They take place before the wedding, so presumably they were ditched from the TV schedule when the show was cancelled in favour of finishing off the story arc.

5x41 (10/1/12 edition)
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

1x01 Episode 1
New comedy-drama written by and starring Ruth Jones. Very good, I thought. So that's another good original comedy on Sky -- what are they playing at?


Interview: Daniel Handler
by Tasha Robinson (from A.V. Club)
A rather interesting and lengthy interview with the man behind Lemony Snicket about all kinds of things I found quite interesting. So there.

Collection Count

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

Y'see, this is the problem with January: there's all the stuff you didn't get for Christmas to buy, plus the new releases. Why are there so many new releases in January? I guess it's all the stuff they didn't think would sell in the pre-Christmas rush, saved up for the (alleged) post-Christmas lull. Unfortunately for me (or, rather, for my bank balance), I'm interested in all that stuff too.

Number of titles in collection: 1,433 [up 7]
Of which DVDs: 1,148 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 285 [up 7]

Number of discs in collection: 3,569 [up 21]
Number of films in collection: 1,527 [up 8]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 5,388 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
