7x10 The Dark...Whatever
Thank goodness they avoided the obvious 'twist' with the fire inspector! Feels like a rare moment of unobviousness for this season, to me. But you can tell the writers know they're getting near the end (this being one of the closing episodes of the penultimate season), what with ditching one of the entire series' main conceits (the clue's in the title).

4x06 Sweet & Sour Charity

Poor Lisicki, but the way Bartoli played meant she really did deserve it.

Collection Count

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

A busy old week, this one. As I mentioned last time, I had a few things in the post. While a couple trickled in during the week, the vast majority (seven of the nine additions) arrived on Friday and Saturday, meaning a bit of last-minute totting up before posting this. How exciting.

The biggest addition must be The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition Blu-ray set. I'm keeping my DVDs (sentimentality, pretty packaging, that kind of reason), so it just adds to the numbers -- and it adds 15 discs, primarily.

Number of titles in collection: 1,579 [up 9]
Of which DVDs: 1,168 [up 3]
Of which Blu-rays: 411 [up 6]

Number of discs in collection: 3,941 [up 24]
Number of films in collection: 1,690 [up 8]
Number of TV episodes in collection: 5,782 [up 9]
Number of short films in collection: 380 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader, when a running time update will see what difference all of this has made to that.
