Hulu's East Los High

When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including East Los High

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new, imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens

Very slow week this week. Very slow. In fact, there’s only been one acquisition this week:

East Los High

My5 – you know, Channel 5’s on-demand service that you’re always using – has acquired this just-cancelled Hulu (US) show. I know literally nothing about it, since it’s basically for young adults, but here’s what Wikipedia has to say:

East Los High is a five-time Emmy nominated Hulu original series that revolves around the lives of a group of teens navigating their final years at a fictional high school in East LA. Created, written, and produced by Wise Entertainment, the series is Hulu’s first and only series with an all Latino cast and crew and is predominantly filmed in East Los Angeles. The producers of the show work closely with numerous public health organizations to incorporate information within the storylines that encourage young Latinos to make healthy life choices

Anyway, it lasted four seasons and you’ll be able to watch it on My5 at some point, maybe soon, maybe not. I’ll let you know when there’s an official date, but you won’t have to wait to watch the first episode, since Hulu’s put it up on YouTube for y’all:


Review: Salvation 1×1 (US: CBS; UK: Amazon)

In the US: Wednesdays, 9pm ET/PT, CBS
In the UK: Amazon Video. Starts Monday 17th July

Armageddon was one of those early Michael Bay movies that not only hinted at the horrors that would greet us when the Transformers series would arrive like a careening HGV through the sides of our homes but was in its own right irredeemably dumb. In case you’ve blanked it from your memories, allow me to remind you: there’s an asteroid coming towards the Earth and only a crack team of miners can save the planet – by landing on the asteroid in a spaceship and blowing it up.

Scientifically, politically, logically, narratively and adverbially, it was complete nonsense in every regard, but it was at least fun and it did such good box office, it was only natural that someone, somewhere, somewhen would decide to make a TV series of it. Salvation isn’t an official sequel, but not only are the basics of Armageddon all there, the writers have actually seen Armageddon and aren’t afraid of letting you know it – and that they think their show is better.

It’s not.

TMINE on Facebook

TMINE now has a Facebook page

It’s an excitingly modern world we live in and there’s this new-fangled thing called Facebook that you might have heard of and even use. Apparently, lots of people use it to keep up-to-date with each other, the news, events and what cats have been up to.

Anyway, since RSS feeds and Twitter might not be ‘your bag’, in an effort to give you all as many ways to keep up-to-date with TMINE, I’ve created a Facebook page for it. I’m not sure what to do with it yet – before you know it, I might be organising TMINE (vegan) barbecues there for y’all – but at the very least, it’ll have all the posts so you’ll know whenever I’ve posted anything new.

Hope that helps and that you like it! (Do you see what I did there?)
