Belatedly continuing the Cracker (re)watch I started in January. Then I noted that the DVDs present each multi-episode story as a single movie, without obvious episode breaks. Perhaps that was just the first story, because there were clear fade-to-blacks for the end of each part this time. Still watched it one sitting, though. Formal considerations aside, it's a really good show, donchaknow.

Collection Count

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

Oh, this week was so nearly a small quiet one... and then a big package of Blu-rays from the US turned up. Can't pretend I'm not excited about that! Combined with a couple of other purchases, that made for a total of 14 new titles — not a record-breaker, but at the upper end of single week increases. Some were upgrades, mind (one DVD to BD, one BD to 4K, and one DVD to 4K!), so the net total is... well, below...

Number of titles in collection: 2,895 [up 10]
Of which DVDs: 1,048 [down 2]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,847 [up 12]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 193 [up 5]

Number of discs in collection: 7,189 [up 17]
Number of films: 3,463 [up 15]
Number of additional cuts: 273 [no change]
Number of TV episodes: 9,336 [no change]
Number of short films: 996 [up 2]

See you next week, faithful reader.
