The League of Gentlemen
4x03 Royston Vasey Mon Amour [season finale]
Revivals of once-great comedies can be a mistake -- they're often little more than an exercise in nostalgia -- but this has been really rather good, and gone down very well too. Officially it's a set of 20th anniversary specials rather than a fourth series, but might we see more? I think it would be welcomed.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]


Forbidden Planet (1956)
[#172 in 100 Films in a Year 2017]
Blindspot 2017 #12. And that completes Blindspot for 2017.

Home Alone (1990)
[2nd or so watch]
Rewatchathon 2017 #49. Haven't seen this since I was a kid. I may well have seen it more than once back then, but I wouldn't swear to it.
