Fresh Off The Boat

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Ghosted, Marvel’s The Punisher, Jean-Claude Van Johnson, Fresh Off The Boat and La Mante (The Mantis)

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens – assuming anyone’s bought anything, of course

Quite a few acquisitions this week, but only one for which we don’t have an exact airdate: Kanal 5 (Denmark)’s Gidseltagningen (Below The Surface), which will air some time next year on BBC4.

Oddly, we already had a premiere date for Netflix’s Godless (November 22), but we didn’t have a trailer until now, so let’s fill in that gap right now:

Weekly Wonder Woman: Justice League #31, Trinity #14 and Wonder Woman/Conan #2

Yes, it’s Weekly Wonder Woman – keeping you up to date on pretty much anything involving DC Comics’ premier superheroine, including where she’s in panto this year

Oscar season is rolling around, which is why we’re suddenly getting some good films in the cinema again. To remind Oscar voters of a certain summer blockbuster, Warner Bros has set up a Wonder Woman Oscars page. In with a chance? Well, you never know (particularly on some of the technical awards).

Meanwhile, the Justice League is apparently doing panto in Clacton on Sea this year, judging by this new poster. I wonder if Barry from EastEnders will be in it, too?

No Superman, you notice. NO ONE IS BEING FOOLED WARNER BROS.

However, all the focus is on the release of Professor Marston and the Wonder Women.

Unfortunately, it’s not going down well with William Marston’s granddaughter.

Oh well.

Comics news

We’re coming up to a momentous numbering moment: the 700th issue of Wonder Woman. Although we’re not doing a #600 and reverting to the serial numbering system, we are at least getting a celebratory cover from Tony Daniel:

Superstition - Season 1

Preview: Superstition 1×1 (US: Syfy; UK: Netflix)

In the US: Fridays, 10/9c, Syfy. Starts October 20
In the UK: Acquired by Netflix

October is scary enough with Halloween, but with a Friday the 13th in it too this year, it’s unsurprising that Syfy is cranking out not one but two spooky shows to capitalise on the moment. We’ve already had the unendurable Ghost Wars, about which the less said the better. Now we’ve got Superstition, which has been created, written and directed by no lesser a man than Mario Van Peebles – he stars in it, too, since he had a few spare hours left in the day, it seems.

No, he doesn’t sing the theme tune.

Super Mario

If you’re of a certain age, you’ll remember that Van Peebles’ New Jack City had as much impact at the time of its release as John Singleton’s Boyz N The Hood, albeit for very different reasons. 

But Peebles wasn’t just a director, he was an actor, too, and he went on to star in all manner of action movies afterwards.

Yeah, they weren’t much good.

Still, if that were a crime, Jean Claude Van Damme would be in the nick for life right now (Universal Soldier and Time Cop excepted). Except he’s not and he’s got a TV series now, so why shouldn’t Mario, hey?
