1x05 Damaged

British Legends of Stage and Screen
1x08 Sir Ian McKellen [season finale]
I watched the one of these with Christopher Lee back in September (was it really so long ago?!), and they're very good profiles/autobiographical interviews. Apparently they're doing more, so that's nice.

1x02 Heat 2
[Watch it (again) on ITV Player.]

Yes, Prime Minister
2x07 The National Education Service


Django (1966)
[#4 in 100 Films in a Year 2013]

With Tarantino's Django Unchained hitting UK cinemas next week, it seemed a good time to finally watch the '60s original, which I've had in my collection for a good 18 months or so. There's a UK BD of it out in just over a week, which I hope (for the sake of everyone who buys it) has a better transfer than this. If it does, I may even upgrade.


This Isn't the Petition Response You're Looking For
by Paul Shawcross (from We the People)

The witty yet educational official response from the White House to a petition requesting they "secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016."

Collection Count

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

I should've had three new things this week. Not a one has turned up. That's mainly down to Hut Group companies, as ever.


Number of titles in collection: 1,522 [no change]
Of which DVDs: 1,146 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 376 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 3,836 [no change]
Number of films in collection: 1,601 [no change]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 5,700 [no change]
Number of short films in collection: 374 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
