What time, TMINE? Including Away and Westside

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

Not many premiere dates this week, I’m afraid. In fact, just the one and it’s a Netflix original: Away. Details after the jump.


  • Netflix has acquired Vier (Belgium)’s Soil. That will air in 2021
  • Sky Witness has acquired ABC (US)’s For Life, but there’s not even a hint as to when that will air

Oops, I missed it

Westside (New Zealand: TV3; UK: The Roku Channel)

To be fair, everyone else missed this, too, since it’s on The Roku Channel, the free channel available to anyone who has a Roku device. Nevertheless, it does appear to be the first time any channel in the UK has shown this.

The prequel to long-running crime drama Outrageous Fortune, Westside tells the story of legendary safe cracker and career criminal Ted West and his firecracker wife Rita. All five seasons (a sixth is on the way) are currently available.

Stars: Antonia Prebble, David de Lautour, Dan Musgrove

What have you been watching? Including Warrior Nun and Intelligence

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

Previously on TMINE

Somehow, completely by magic and completely unintentionally, WHYBW has ended up again on its normally scheduled Wednesday. It’s a miracle, I tell you. So I’m going to give up predicting when it’ll next show up and just say “next week”.

Covid schedules being what they are, I’ve not been able to review that much new TV over the past week and a bit, but Covideodrome did manage to take in Bad Boys For Life (2019), in case you fancied a movie review.

ABC (Australia)’s Retrograde

Next on TMINE

Talking of movies, I will at some point be reviewing Aladdin (2019) for Covideodrome. We also watched Frozen II (2019) this week, but that was so boring, I’m not sure I can be bothered with a review of it. It was all right, but it was ridiculously complicated for what it was and everyone seemed so bored by it all, that it wasn’t until halfway through that we realised it was the same voice cast as its predecessor.

An Apple TV+ gives us Greyhound (2020), Tom Hanks’s new World War II movie, so I’m sure I’ll be giving that a gander, too.

TV-wise, we’re a bit strapped. Apple TV+ will also be offering us Little Voice, but that’s probably too musical for TMINE’s tastes. Starz (US) will be giving us P-Valley on Sunday, but that’s a bit too stripteasey for TMINE’s tastes.

That’s more or less it for the streaming services and US TV.

Australia will, however, be giving us the first Covid comedy series, Retrograde, today, so I will have a look at that, at least.

What TMINE has been watching

Baron Noir is now on pause. I can only watch so many foreign-language shows in one week, since I have to keep an eye on the subtitles and only have so much concentration left in me at this time of year, and what with German shows Das Boot and Dark, I’m afraid France has had to go on pause.

Dark continues… darkly. It’s basically repeating the first two seasons but with the burning question “What if it had been all about Martha instead?” I think her name’s Martha, but usual problems with names/Dark there. I’m quite enjoying it for that, but I would rather like it to move on, as I’m up to episode four already.

In terms of new shows, I decided not to watch Head High for all the reasons I stated last week (secondary school rugby). But I did manage to watch Netflix’s Warrior Nun, so we’ll be able to talk about that after the jump. I also caught quite a few episodes of Sky One’s Intelligence, as Lovely Wife fancied watching, so we can talk about that as well.

That’s all on top of the latest episodes of the usual regulars: Condor, Das Boot, Doom Patrol, Stargirl and The Twilight Zone. See you in a mo.
