Crime Stories
1x01 Episode 1
ITV1 enters the daytime drama sphere that's been such a success for BBC One with this documentary-style drama about relatively minor crimes (things like theft, as opposed to the incessant murders that occupy prime-time detectives). The choice of a documentary aesthetic means it can looks cheap without looking cheap, though the largely improvised (I hope!) acting is distinctly daytime. Still, has promise in its own way.

Weekend Report: Skyfall Scores Best Bond Debut Ever
by Ray Subers (from Box Office Mojo)

Bit late to the party on this one because I've been mostly away from the 'net since Sunday, but in case you missed it too this is worth reporting. Essentially, Skyfall had a fab opening weekend in the US, smashing previous Bond records (the next nearest, Quantum of Solace, is nearly 24% lower) and winding up the fourth-largest opening of the entire year. Go Bond!
