Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including NOS4A2

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

Acquisitions

Not that many acquisitions this week, with only Alibi picking up any new shows and they’re both mini-series:

  • Paramount (US)’s Waco
  • TNT (US)’s I Am The Night

Both crime dramas, obviously.

Premiere dates

NOS4A2 (US/UK: AMC)

Premiere date: Tuesday August 13, 9pm

Based on Joe Hill’s best-selling novel of the same name, NOS4A2 follows Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman with the supernatural ability to find lost things. This puts her on a collision course with Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto), an immortal villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of his imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law.

Also stars: Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Virginia Kull, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Jahkara Smith.

Orange Thursday: Glass (2019) and Snowpiercer (2014)

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

Yes, as previewed last week, Orange Wednesdays is now Orange Thursdays and the two movies we’re going to look at this week are:

  • Glass (2019): M Night Shyamalan’s sequel to Split (2016). And maybe another movie. Shhh!
  • Snowpiercer (2014): Bong Joon-ho’s adaptation of French graphic novel Le Transperceneige

One of those stars a well known superhero, the other is about superheroes. Seriously, it is getting so hard to avoid talking about superheroes when talking about movies.

What have you been watching? Including Game of Thrones

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

It’s Wednesday. That must mean it’s time for WHYBW. Just as it has always been.

BTW, how’s the war with Oceania going?

This week’s reviews

It’s been a good week for reviews, with not just one but two boxsets:

Just a reminder: tomorrow’s Orange Thursday (I don’t know why I’ve just italicised that) will be taking in both Glass (2019) and Snowpiercer (2014), just in case you haven’t done the background viewing already.

What’s coming this week

I’ve reviewed most of the shows on last week’s list. However, I’ve only just started watching Five Bedrooms (it’s okay – not awful, not great) and since episode two of that was on about half an hour ago in Oz, I might as well watch that before reviewing the show. That should be coming your way either tomorrow or Friday. Or maybe as part of next week’s WHYBW.

Despite my promises, I never watched so much as a frame of What/If… since it turns out that’s not out until this Friday. Whoops. Sorry about that. I’ll try to give that a go when it’s actually available. There’s a plan, hey?

And given Hulu launched the entire series of Catch-22 in one go on Friday, I might as well declare it’ll be next week’s Boxset Tuesday (Monday being yet another UK bank holiday). There’s a project for the bank holiday weekend, if Lovely Wife isn’t too busy with all her studies.

Somewhere mixed up in all of that will be Blood and Treasure. National Geographic’s The Hot Zone is also being served up on Monday, which I’ll definitely be watching at some point – for verily, it’s about killer viruses and I’ve read the book it’s based on and I’ve just spent the past two days editing an article about dengue fever, so clearly it’s got everything I could possibly need in a TV series.

The regulars

As usual, I’ll be talking about the latest episodes of Doom Patrol, Harrow, Mr Black and Warrior. I also caught another episode of The Society. And, of course, it was the final ever episode of a certain long-running fantasy show this week, so I should probably talk about that, too. What do you think?

See you in a mo.
