2x15 The Promise

9x15 The One with the Mugging [5th or so watch]
There seem to be an exceptionally high number of Famous Guest Stars in this season. I guess they knew the end was in sight.

How I Met Your Mother
9x09 Platonish
It's episodes like this that prove why people shouldn't've been so surprised when it all ended how it did. (Yeah, E4 are months away from getting there, but I accidentally found out what happens anyway.)
[Watch it (again) on 4oD.]

The Trip to Italy
Part 1 Il Cenobio dei Dogi, Camogli
I didn't bother with the first series of The Trip (way back in 2010 now) because I wasn't sure I could take three hours of Steve Coogan. Some good reviews tempted me in for this sequel, though, and I found it to be quite enjoyable. Mainly thanks to Rob Brydon, but Coogan wasn't so bad.
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]


Wolverine #1-2 by Chris Claremont & Frank Miller

No, not the Wolverine #1&2 I read recently; nor the Wolverine #1&2 that have been published since then; but, in fact, the first ever Wolverine #1&2 from 1982, aka Wolverine vol.1 1&2 -- half of the story that (loosely) inspired last summer's Wolverine movie, The Wolverine.

Much like its titular character (that'd be Wolverine), its reputation precedes it. Fortunately, it is very good.
