Wimbledon 2022
Men's Final
I've watched bits of Wimbledon on and off this year, but not enough to feel it merited logging. I only half-watched this too, but I did have the full thing on, and it was worth it for the touching tribute to Sue Barker after the match. Even though I don't watch a huge amount of Wimbledon (I haven't bothered to log it since 2014!), I'm always aware of it, and she's been presenting it for as long as I can remember. Definitely an emotional farewell.

Lupin the Third: Is Lupin Still Burning? (2018)
Appropriately for a 50th anniversary special, Is Lupin Still Burning is loaded with references (both major and minor) for diehard fans to enjoy. As someone who has enjoyed a couple of Lupin’s adventures but is a long way from being well-versed in his world, I could tell a load of stuff was flying over my head — almost everything, in fact — which was unfortunate, but understandable. This is clearly a celebration that’s primarily aimed at dyed-in-the-wool fans rather than pleasing or initiating newcomers.
