The 84th Annual Academy Awards
aka the Oscars, obviously. As usual (I've done it for a couple of years now), I got Sky Movies to watch this... and lots of on-demand movies for a month. Yay!
Anyway, the ceremony itself... was fine. Billy Crystal started weakly but got better; almost every award went where everyone thought it would; and Sky's coverage was a bit of a shambles. I presume there are very few people who know what they're talking about who'll agree to come on.

2x01 Deep in Death
It's only been six months since Channel 5 finished airing the first season of Castle, but it's such good fun it feels like a lot longer. Maybe one day we'll even catch up with the US (currently deep in season four).
[Watch it (again) on Demand 5.]

My Life in Books
2x01 Pamela Stephenson and Alexander Armstrong
At the end of the first series I commented that some more would be nice, and lo and behold here it is! Didn't really expect that, but it's most welcome.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

6x11 (27/2/12 edition)
That's right, today's. You don't get much more caught up than that, eh.
