What time, TMINE? Including Those Who Kill, Detective Cain, The Hot Zone, The I-Land, City on a Hill, Bard of Blood and Living With Yourself

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

What time, TMINE? has been away for a month now, and it would madness – madness, I tell you! – for me to try to round up four weeks’ worth of acquisitions and premiere dates.

So, instead, let’s pretend nothing’s happened over the past month and everything started off fresh and new from Monday*. And, in fact, there’s been a real splurge of acquisitions this week, although not all of them have premiere dates yet.

*Actually, I have been keeping an eye on things and there haven’t been that many acquisitions in the past month. So I’m not missing much out.

Acquisitions

  • BBC Two has picked up ZDF (Germany)/ORF (Austria)’s Vienna Blood. That’ll air later this year
  • Walter Presents has acquires C More/TV4 (Sweden)’s Sthlm Rekviem (Stockholm Requiem)
  • Sky is to launch Sky Comedy and Sky Crime channels in February 2020, for which it has acquired NBC (US)’s AP Bio and Sunnyside
  • BBC Three has acquired NRK (Norway)’s Nudes
  • The Beeb (don’t know which channel) has acquired the new adaptation of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days being produced by an alliance of European pubcasters

After the jump, premiere dates for Den som dræber (Darkness: Those Who Kill), Caïn (Detective Cain), The Hot Zone, The I-Land, City on a Hill, Bard of Blood, and Living With Yourself.

Orange Thursday: Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw (2019)

Every Thursday, TMINE reviews two movies, carefully avoiding infringing a former mobile phone company’s trademarked marketing gimmick

Orange Thursday is back but as it’s August, TMINE’s on a slightly reduced schedule to allow me time to catch up with all my TV viewing. That means there’ll only be one movie this week, but next week we’ll look at two Netflix movies: Point Blank and The Red Sea Diving Resort. Although there is an outside possibility I might postpone one of those in favour of Angel Has Fallen (2019). Let’s see how the Bank Holiday weekend fares.

This week, though, we’ll focus on this summer’s big blockbuster: Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw. We can talk about which classic 80s movie it’s an homage to after this ‘ere trailer and the jump. See you in a mo.

What have you been watching? Including Crashing and Another Life

It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend to fellow TMINE readers anything you’ve been watching this week

As I revealed on Monday, since…

  • I’m just back from my holidays
  • I haven’t yet caught up with all the regulars in the TMINE viewing queue
  • I’m still operating my “if it starts in August, I (probably) won’t review it rule”

…this week’s WHYBW will be briefer than normal and largely thrown over to you, gentle reader (which is ostensibly the point of WHYBW anyway).

So please, let everyone know what you’ve been watching of late and whether it’s any good. If you’ve never commented here before and have been reading for a while, now would be a good time to introduce yourself!

Some reviews…

However, I have tried to watch a few new shows over the past month and while most of them are boxsets that I’ll be reviewing at some point in the next few weeks in their own entries, I thought I’d throw out a few words on both Netflix’s Another Life and Channel 4’s Crashing after the jump.

Just a note that although I’ve also just finishing watching the first episode of Amazon’s The Boys and I’ve not properly warmed to yet, I’ve just realised that the Superman-esque main superhero is played by Banshee‘s Antony Starr. Plus as Karl Urban’s cod-English accent is highly entertaining, I’m going to hold off reviewing that until I’ve a few more episodes under my belt, at least.
