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.
I spent most of the weekend not watching a lot of things I was supposed to be watching, instead watching season one of Daredevil again - it's so much better than the second season, which is starting to feel more disappointing with every passing day. But that doesn't mean I'm not up to date. It just means I still haven't watched Ófærð (Trapped) yet.
Elsewhere, I've reviewed Containment (US: The CW; UK: E4) and passed a third-episode verdict on The Detour (US: TBS). I'll be passing a third-episode verdict on Game on Silence either tomorrow or Wednesday. That means that after the jump, we'll have a look at the latest episodes of The Americans, Banshee, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Limitless, Lopez, Lucifer and The Tunnel (Tunnel), as well as the season finale of Supergirl. HBO's also just brought back Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley , so I'll be looking over them, too.
But first, a movie:
Bridge of Spies (2015) (iTunes)
Slightly soporific Spielberg biopic of Cold War lawyer James B Donovan (Tom Hanks), who defended notorious spy Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), and ended up helping in negotiations in Berlin to exchange Abel for U2 pilot Gary Powers. He does that by talking about the Constitution and what it is to be American. All solidly made but that summary is really all you need to know, in what is basically a not very subtle commentary on post-9/11 US attitudes to human rights, treating enemy combatants civilly, etc. If you do watch it, don't be surprised that there's a chunk in the middle in German without subtitles, as that's deliberate. Don't worry - they're just talking about how expensive his coat is.
