Review: The Lottery 1x1 (Lifetime)

Posted 13 hours ago | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Lifetime's Lottery

In the US: Sundays, 10/9c, Lifetime

Did you know the world’s fertility is slowly decreasing? No one’s exactly sure why, although chemicals, particularly those with oestrogen-like properties, that have been flushed into the ecosystem is among the more likely suggestions. Of course, with the world’s population heading for 7 billion and likely to hit 9.6 billion by 2050, it’s not exactly an immediate global issue, even if it does affect some people quite deeply.

But imagine what would happen if by 2020, suddenly everyone, everywhere stopped being able to have children and no more kids were born at all. What would that be like?

Well, lots of people have already had a go at answering this question. Margaret Attwood projected a similar future in The Handmaid’s Tale, which effectively imagined what would happen if Islamic law were implemented by a Christian US.

PD James's The Children of Men, adapted by Alfonso Cuarón and Timothy J. Sexton as a movie starring Clive Owen, imagines a similar dystopian future for the UK in such circumstance, albeit one that's more fascist than theocratic. 

All of which is bleak - way, way too bleak for basic cable, let alone Lifetime, home of very fluffy female-friendly fare such as Army Wives, Devious Maids, Drop Dead Diva, The Client List and Witches of East End. So I can’t imagine that when Sexton re-pitched Children of Men as a TV series, he did it without thinking it might need to be toned down a bit and made a bit more hopeful.

Certainly, given his co-producer partner is ‘practising friend of popular science’ Danny Cannon (CSI, Eleventh Hour), edginess was out of the question for Sexton's The Lottery. Within the first 10 minutes of the future extinction of humanity being announced, scientist Marley Shelton (also Eleventh Hour) has already come up with a viable treatment that fertilises 100 embryos.

Now science being largely a collaborative subject and this being a highly urgent issue that the whole world needs solving within the next 70-100 years, you’d have thought the most obvious coda to all this is that Shelton would then have been working with other scientists around the US and the world to perfect her technique and get a new baby boom underway. Meanwhile, those embryos would be being implanted in the most genetically and physically hospitable environments: their egg donors.

Except that wouldn’t be very dramatically interesting, so instead, brace yourselves. First, US President Yul Vazquez (The Good Wife, Magic City) wants to keep the discovery secret and impregnate 100 female soldiers with the embryos. Just like that. Because women join the army to have babies.

But then chief of staff Athena Karkanis (The Border) is hatching a cunning plan to 'give the nation hope’ - a lottery, with 100 lucky winners being given the chance to have a child. And then we add on a conspiracy theory to make it all just a little bit sillier.

Here’s a trailer.

Review: Satisfaction 1x1 (USA)

Posted 17 hours ago | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

The Glades

In the US: Thursdays, 10/9c, USA

There is something of a pyramid of US TV networks, which has premium cable at the top, basic cable in the middle and network at the bottom. If it’s on premium cable, it’s liable to be top quality and have as much swearing, nudity and violence (aka ‘adult themes’) as your little heart desires; if it’s on basic cable, it’s probably not going to be as good as premium cable, but it’s still likely to be a cut above the usual; and then there’s the potluck of network TV at the bottom - could be good, could be bad, unlikely to be great.

As a result, there’s something of a ‘trickle down’ effect with this pyramid. Since premium cable has the biggest budgets and the most creative freedom, it gets the best pitches and makes the most innovative shows. Every other channel just has to play catch-up.

Case in point is USA’s Satisfaction, which sees Matt Passmore (The Glades) growing increasingly dissatisfied with his job and life before erupting in rage and giving it all up, hoping to seek enlightenment, before reclaiming his life. Sounds a lot like HBO’s Enlightened with Laura Dern, doesn’t it?

Not so fast, though, sonny Jim. Because along the way he discovers his unsatisfied wife, Stephanie Szostak (Iron Man 3), is paying an escort for sex. And when he finds himself in possession of said escort’s phone, he soon discovers the surprising number of rich single and married women prepared to pay him quite a lot of money for sex, too. Hmm. Sounds a lot like HBO’s Hung, too, doesn’t it?

So - two HBO shows rolled into one. Should be twice as good as one HBO show, shouldn’t it? Well…

It’s called trickle down for a reason.

Here’s a trailer.

Review: Matador 1x1 (El Rey)

Posted yesterday at 14:53 | comments | Bookmark and Share

El Rey's Matador

In the US: Tuesdays, 9pm ET/PT, El Rey

There is something of a stereotype in the US that there’s only three groups of people who play what the rest of the world calls football/le football/Fußball/ποδόσφαιρο/etc but which America calls soccer:

  1. Children, particularly girls
  2. Immigrants
  3. Latinos

'Real men', on the other hand, play what the US calls football, but the rest of the world calls American football.

Now, the World Cup this year, at which the US did surprisingly well, might have helped to start the slow process of neutralising this stereotype. But film director Robert Rodriguez made his career playing with Latin stereotypes in films such as El Mariarchi and From Dusk Till Dawn and with grindhouse homages such as Sin City, Machete and, erm, Grindhouse. Given that Rodriguez now has his own English-language, Latin-interest, pro-grindhouse TV network, El Rey, it’s no big surprise therefore that his second scripted drama, which follows hot on the heels of the TV adaptation of From Dusk Till Dawn, should capitalise on that stereotype.

Matador is a partial grindhouse homage about an undercover DEA agent (Gabriel Luna) who gets recruited by the CIA when they spot he’s not only quite good at undercover work, he can also run very quickly. Luna’s task? To somehow infiltrate LA’s professional football team, run by Alfred Molina, to uncover a global conspiracy.

Plausible, no?

By turns Chuck-like then Escape From Athena ridiculous, Matador is unfortunately only moderately exciting and, it has to be said, is full of immigrants. Brits and Australians. There’s just loads of them.

Here’s a trailer.

Weekly Wonder Woman: Injustice Gods Among Us: Year Two #15

Posted yesterday at 12:13 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Diana was taking a well-deserved holiday last week in most of the DC universes. However, in the “let’s get everyone hitting each other in time for the video game” universe of Injustice Gods Among Us, she did at least get a mention.

When last we left her in issue #4, she was in a coma in Man’s World, with her mother Hippolyta promising to take her back to Paradise Island to seek the help of the gods. When there’s an attack against the Earth – currently being run by an uneasy alliance between Superman and Sinestro – where’s Superman to defend it? Visiting Wonder Woman.

Superman's on Themyscira

He’s not responding. I wonder what’s stopping him…

Why I don't watch Greek TV

Posted yesterday at 10:48 | comments | Bookmark and Share

So obviously many of this ‘ere blog’s readers – well, perhaps one or two – will be wondering exactly what shows I include on this blog and review, and which ones I don’t. Basically, I look at scripted shows (that is, comedies and dramas) from around the world that catch my attention and I can get to easily.

However, my time being limited and the world quite big, I can’t watch everything. More to the point, neither can you guys, which is probably why you’re here anyway, hoping that’ll I winnow out the rubbish and find the good stuff for y’all.

Now, there’s not much point my reviewing UK shows, beyond one or two. You – and I’m assuming most of my readers are from the UK (although, actually, it’s about a third UK, a third US and a third everyone else) – can find those for yourselves, either by looking through the EPG or looking at all the other excellent web sites out there.

I do get some offers of previews from the BBC and Channel 4. In fact, I get an email every night at 11.30pm from the BBC to let me know there’s TV on its preview site that I might want to watch:


BBC Previews

Helpful, hey? They never tell me exactly what it is that I might want to watch, only that it’s there. So I have to go hunting through their web site and then, if I actually find the new show, I have to ring the number of the PR person in charge of that show to get permission to view it.

Which not only is a pain in the arse but means I have to find a computer to sit in front of for 30 minutes to an hour and not do anything else. The short, end result is that I don’t bother.

Channel 4 send me emails, too, but unfortunately, it’s almost always for shows that aren’t scripted or are complete rubbish.

Overall, then, that’s why, with a few exceptions, I don’t really bother discussing UK TV.

So instead, I usually focus on English-language TV from the rest of the world – in particular, US, Canadian and Australian/New Zealand TV. In part, that’s because I speak the language; in part, it’s because it's relatively easy for me to get this content and the previews people in the US that I’m in touch with actually have a sensible preview system, too; and in part, it's because there’s a good old chance it’ll end up on UK TV and that you readers will be able to watch it at some point in the future.

The last part is important. There’s no point to my reviewing a brilliant show that’s airing on South African TV if there’s no chance you’ll ever be able to watch it. That’s a waste of my time and will stop me from watching and reviewing something else that more than two of you might actually be able to watch some day.

If we look at the countries from which the UK does import TV, we can see that I have to restrict myself, since between BBCs 1-4, Channel 4, More4, Channel 5, and Sky Arts 1 and 2, that list is pretty short: Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, Scandinavia, Iceland, Israel, Ireland, Italy and Spain. You occasionally get a few stragglers from elsewhere – the Africa Channel, for example, imports from Zambia and the like, and there’s bound to be some Japanese, Indian and Chinese shows I’m missing up in the nosebleeds of the EPG, too.

But there’s no guarantee that it’ll end up on UK TV screens and, since they’re in languages other than English, subtitles are usually important. I’d love to review Swedish TV more often. But I don’t speak Swedish and there aren’t subtitles. Oh well.

Now I do speak French pretty well and German reasonably well – in fact, I used to do the occasional bit of translation work – but French and German TV are pretty dreadful normally and Mr Thierry Attard is far better equipped and placed to cover them anyway. You want to know about TF1, you mentalist – go read his blog. If it arrives on UK or US TV, I’ll do my best to cover it, but I’m not going to put myself to any great effort, particularly in advance because – and to hark back to a previous point – still not much French and German TV ends up on UK TV.

Engrenages and Braquo are basically the good shows on French TV, bar a couple of strange Agatha Christie adaptations that replace Miss Marple and Hercules Poirot with some home-made French detectives. German has plenty of wacky fun on it, but we never get to see that: we get to see stuff set during the First and Second World War and that’s it. Because it’s still the case, unfortunately, that in the UK, if we hear ‘Germany', we think 'World War’, despite the fact WW2 finished 70 years ago. The last German show of any note that wasn’t about a war that I can remember airing on British TV was Gambit, back in 1987.

Which in a round-about way leads me finally to the title of this post: why I don’t watch Greek TV. Now, although the main UK channels don’t really offer much by way of opportunity to watch Greek TV, it is surprisingly easy to watch a whole slew of Greek-language channels in the UK, not just from Greece-proper, but also from Cyprus and Crete, on iOS devices using two free apps: Vision TV Net, which also offers other foreign language channels; and Greek TV Live.

And I do speak Greek reasonably well. So although there’s the obvious issue of a lack of English subtitles, you’d think that I’d be a least mentioning it from time to time, such as with ΑΝΤ1’s forthcoming Lost-alike Εκδρομή (aka The Excursion), which doesn’t look too bad.

Εκδρομή ΑΝΤ1

The trouble is that Greek TV is largely repeats, US shows dubbed or subtitled in English, discussion and game shows, and adaptations of other countries’ TV.

To give you the best example I can think of of why I don’t cover Greek TV more/at all on this blog, I’ll leave you with this image of what was on RikSat during prime time last night.

Rik Sat

Yes, that is a repeat of a 1990s TV drama that sees a man spanking a teenage girl while an old, stereotypically dressed Greek woman cooks in the kitchen. But no, I have no idea why there is a motorbike parked in their front room.

That's not a bar in Coupling

Posted yesterday at 09:53 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

I do a lot of work in Islington and such is my location and my hatred of the morning rush hour tube and Northern Line, the best way for me to get there is by train to Farringdon and then walking. It’s much more civilised, I always get a seat and I get to have a walk in the sunshine and this time of year. Usually.

So imagine my surprise when my wife decides she wants to watch all of Coupling again from the beginning – surprisingly, not because she’s seen Crossbones – and it turns out that the opening of episode one is filmed right along the route I walk every day I go to work.

Coupling Farringdon

That’d be here in Sekforde Street:

However, as with all things TV, things go a bit awry in the quest for the bar on Clerkenwell Greeen where they hang out in every episode and where Jeff and Steve are going in the picture above:

So don’t bother looking. Or trying to buy a drink from them…

Quite literally the stupidest bit of product placement ever

Posted yesterday at 09:35 | comments | Bookmark and Share

So product placement is a big thing in US TV. In an age when ratings are dropping, Internet viewing is increasing, people skim through shows on PVR, foreign sales are a big source of revenue and boxsets are binged aplenty, the chances that anyone will even get the chance to see an ad you’ve bought during an ad break, let alone watch it, are getting smaller and smaller every day. On the other hand, stick one of your products in the show and no matter which medium the viewer uses to watch the show, wherever they are in the world, they will see that product in action at 1x speed.

Obviously, you have to spend more to get that product into the show, and such is the cash required, it’s often been able to keep afloat shows such as Chuck and Heroes that would have died sooner if they’d relied purely on ad break funding. There’s competition with other advertisers, too, since there’s only so many cars that can be driven or Subway sandwiches eaten per episode.

So spare a thought for TNT’s The Last Ship, which appears to have had the novel idea of piggybacking two product placements on top of each other. Unfortunately, I don’t think Apple are going to be very happy with them for doing that.

Here, we have a perfectly humble webcam being shown off to punters. It’s the end of the world, the captain of The Last Ship is recording possibly the most vital messages possible for his family – he’s going to want good HD quality recordings. And the webcam glows all blue, which is cool!

Last Ship's webcam

I must buy this webcam!

Except… it turns out that he’s using a MacBook Air to make his recording.

MacBook Air in The Last Ship

Cool laptop that. Problem is that the MacBook Air has a built-in HD webcam. In fact, it’s right underneath that other webcam the captain’s using.

MacBook Air webcam

So either the captain’s a technological idiot or his lovely MacBook has broken at a vital moment in world history. Not the message Apple wants to be sending out with The Last Ship.

I will not buy this MacBook Air.

Particularly since it’s very, very expensive.

Disclaimer: this post was in no way sponsored by anyone, particularly Apple or any webcam manufacturers. Of course, if they want to, I’m not going to say no…

Possibly the worst merchandising idea ever: Penny Dreadful action figures

Posted 2 days ago at 08:14 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

I’m not one for an action figure myself. I’m an adult for one thing.

Okay, cheap shot. I do appreciate that some grown-ups enjoy playing with an action figure. I’m not sure why, but I’m not sure why people watch Mrs Brown’s Boys, either. It takes all sorts to make a world, I guess.

But surely, surely, there is no point whatsoever to these figures, which are going to be unveiled at Comic-Con: Eva Green and Josh Hartnett in Penny Dreadful.

Josh Hartnett/Ethan Chandler


Penny Dreadful action figure of Eva Green

I’m sure that there will be some uptake, despite the fact they’re pretty poor. But what’s the point? In a show populated by Dracula, Frankenstein, Frankenstein’s Monster, Van Helsing, Mina Harker and Dorian Gray, they’re going with “the guy who can shoot things and has a secret (that you can’t exploit with this action figure)” and “the woman who gets possessed a lot while hamming it up”? How odd.

Still, it takes all sorts to make a world, I guess.

What have you been watching? Including Extant, Tyrant, The Last Ship, Suits, 24 and Halt and Catch Fire

Posted 4 days ago at 16:09 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

It's "What have you been watching?", my chance to tell you what movies and TV I’ve been watching recently that I haven't already reviewed and your chance to recommend things to everyone else (and me) in case I've missed them.

The usual "TMINE recommends" page features links to reviews of all the shows I've ever recommended, and there's also the Reviews A-Z, for when you want to check more or less anything I've reviewed ever. And if you want to know when any of these shows are on in your area, there's Locate TV - they’ll even email you a weekly schedule.

Oh, why do they do this? The rest of the week is a gaping hole of misery, reality shows, American Ninja and God knows what else, yet come Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday, suddenly it’s all systems go and the US networks chuck everything they’ve got at the schedules.

I’ve tried my best and this week, I’ve managed to review the following new shows:

But still in the first-run viewing queue are USA’s Satisfaction, El Rey’s Matador, and The Divide. The latter’s from WE tv, which doesn’t even make scripted drama, and it aired two hour-long episodes in one go. What chance does that give me? It’s like they’re doing it deliberately to annoy me, now.

Fingers crossed, though, I’ll be able to play catch-up over the weekend and review them all on Monday and Tuesday next week.

Anyway, after the jump, a round-up of the regulars that I did watch, with reviews of 24, Extant, Halt and Catch Fire, The Last Ship, Suits and Tyrant.

Mini-review: You're The Worst 1x1 (FX)

Posted 4 days ago at 13:46 | comments | Bookmark and Share

You're The Worst

In the US: Thursdays, 10.30pm ET, FX

Firstly, I’d like to say that if I were American, I’d be sick of Brits by now. I like to joke about it, but we are in virtually every US TV show, either with our own accents or faking US accents. If I were an American actor, I’d probably have given up trying by now. I mean if it’s not the Brits, it’s the Aussies, so what chance would I stand?

Case in point: You’re The Worst – it’s set in LA but has Chris Geere as its male romantic lead. Chris Geere. You know, the guy from Waterloo Road and Trollied.

No? Exactly. Was there literally no one American who was better or more attractive? It astonishes me.

To be fair, he does play the dishevelled, impoverished, cynical English author very well, which is what You’re The Worst calls on him to be, but there’s no especial need for him to be English other than just because.

Nevertheless, if Marriage was a salutary example of how not to do a basic cable romantic-comedy, You’re The Worst is the counter-example, with jokes, interesting characters and situations, romance, and moments of complete unexpectedness all pushing the boundaries of what basic cable allows.

As the name suggests, the show is about two very toxic, self-destructive human beings who realise there’s a good possibility that their toxic, self-destructivenesses are highly compatible. Geere decides that a wedding is the best place to tell his ex-girlfriend, the bride, what a terrible person she is and what a mistake she’s making so gets thrown out; outside, he bumps into one of the guests, Aya Cash (Traffic Light, We Are Men, The Newsroom and the failed US adaptation of Friday Night Dinner), who’s stealing one of the wedding gifts. They hook up and after briefly returning to their individual lives, decide that actually, maybe they’re better off with each other than without.

Created and exec produced by Weeds’ Stephen Falk, the show has about 1000% times more edge than Rush, with some pretty graphic sex scenes and language, and moments of amorality Rush would sit there feeling all pleased with itself for doing but that it tosses out there with pure abandon. Both Cash and Geere have charm and charisma, both individually and together. Their characters do actually feel like real, if exaggerated people. The supporting cast don’t feel like they’re just there as plot aids or have been produced through some macro in Final Draft. The romance, twisted as it is, is romantic – you do want these people to find happiness together. And unlike Marriage, it’s funny, doesn’t offer the same trite bromides and doesn’t have complete idiots for characters.

All in all, I really liked it.

Here – watch this very NSFW trailer to see if you might, too.

Mini-review: Marriage 1x1 (FX)

Posted 4 days ago at 13:11 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Married

In the US: Thursdays, 10pm ET, FX

Some comedies make you laugh. Some comedies are romantic. Some comedies make you think. Some comedies give you characters you can love.

So spare a thought for Marriage, one of two half-hour comedies dark and gritty FX is debuting this week on Thursday nights, because it does none of the above.

It is an absolute laugh-free zone, with characters you can’t even slightly care about, zero romance and whose deepest thought is that in marriages, you sometimes have to do things because your partner likes them.

It stars Nat Faxon (Happy Hour, Ben and Kate) and Judy Greer (Archer, Arrested Development, Mad Love) as a long-term married couple whose marriage has lost its spark, John Hodgman (The Daily Show) as Faxon’s best friend and Paul Reiser as the husband of one of Faxon’s friends.

Good cast, no? Well, maybe not Faxon, whose baby-man Ben annoyed the crap out of me, rather than endeared himself to me in Ben and Kate. But overall, people who have comedic chops.

Yet the entire script is just one neverending repetition of pretty much every relationship comedy you’ll have ever seen, played out by a cast of characters with the depth of a paddling pool.

Faxon stereotypically wants to have more sex than Greer, who’s too tired. Innovative!

So Faxon’s friends advise him to do things she likes and then she’ll want more. Novel!

Except he does it badly. Who saw that coming?

So she suggests jokingly he get a mistress. And he takes it seriously. Well you could knock me down with a feather!

Maybe all that would raise a laugh in a multi-camera studio comedy (barely), but in a single-camera comedy that also likes doing cringe comedy and where, despite being on cable, the height of sophistication is jokes about masturbation? Not a chance.

I don’t foresee a future for this Marriage, particularly since it follows the much, much better You’re The Worst. More on that in a moment.

But here’s a trailer so you can see what I’m on about. It contains the one funny joke in the show.

Review: Rush 1x1 (USA)

Posted 4 days ago at 12:02 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

USA Network's Rush

In the US: Thursdays, 9/8c, USA Network

A while ago, I remarked that of all the people from Coupling whom you might have expected to see as a US action hero, Englishman Richard Coyle was probably at the bottom of the list, since he played poor old put-upon, terminally unconfident Welshman Jeff.

Well, it seems the season for such surprises because over on basic cable, USA has decided that absolutely the best person to head up its new dark, gritty – well, darker, grittier – medical show Rush is Welshman Tom Ellis. From Miranda. Yes, Miranda.

Here, let Blog Goddess and Welshwoman Joanna Page talk you through Tom Ellis’s Miranda highlights.

As Ellis himself remarks, "If Rush was a show in the UK, I don't think that they would think of me to play that part."

All power to him, though, because despite being forced to play American, Tom Ellis is actually very good in Rush. Tom Ellis is not Rush’s problem.

And Rush does have problems. Many of them. The most obvious of these is it’s basically Royal Pains crossed with the anaemic US version of Rake. Just like Dr Hank, Ellis’s eponymous Rush is a concierge doctor to the rich and famous, rushing to their side whenever they’re in medical trouble and using his ingenuity and network of connections to solve the trickiest of medical concerns.

But just like Rake’s Cleaver Greene, Rush is in it for himself and is a drug-taking, near moral vacuum who likes to screw around, smoke at his godson’s party, sabotages his relationships, exploits his female assistant and will take the worst scum of humanity as his clients, as long as they pay cash up front or hold a gun to his head.

Except this is basic cable so Rush has a heart. And it’s the USA Network, where characters are welcome and dark and gritty aren’t. Which means if you’re expecting a rush from Rush, you’re going to be sorely disappointed.

Here’s a trailer:
