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.

What TV’s on at the BFI in September 2019

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

After the traditional August lull, the BFI is back in full force for September, with a pretty epic line-up. There is a stonking season of Monty Python sessions, including a weekend airing every episode, as well as pre- and post-Python highlights such as Q5, Fawlty Towers and Rutland Weekend Television.

On top of that, there’s a showing of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Doctor Who story Mindwarp, complete with Q&A with Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant, a preview of the forthcoming Temple with Mark Strong, and a preview of World on Fire. As if that weren’t enough, there’s a celebration of Not the Nine O’Clock News with John Lloyd and an episode of Porridge.

Wowzers. Full details after the jump. Be sure to comb through the details or you might miss something!

What TV’s on at the RTS in October? Including Russell T Davies in conversation and Zomboat!

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the RTS will be presenting around the country

Oddly, there doesn’t appear to be much on at the RTS in September, but October is giving us a couple of interesting events. Tickets for the Russell T Davies event are going fast, but a new batch have just been released, so get them while you can.

Plus if you can work out when the Zomboat! screening is actually going to take place, let me know.


Zomboat! premiere screening and Q&A

Date: Thursday 3 October
Timings: Not listed
Venue: IET, Cambridge Street, Birmingham

The premiere of new ITV2 comedy series, Zomboat!, is being held at the IET Birmingham on Thursday 3 October with its four stars in attendance.

The Royal Television Society (Midlands) event at the canalside IET building is set to welcome stars Leah Brotherhead, Hamza Jeetooa, Ryan McKen and Cara Theobold; and they will be joined on the night by Executive Producers Camilla Campbell and Robert Wulff-Cochrane from Noho Films and Writer Adam Miller, for a Q&A straight after the screening.

When the zombie apocalypse is unleashed in Birmingham, sisters Kat and Jo, together with unlikely travel companions Sunny and Amar, must flee for their lives… by canal boat. Jo has just returned from a season as a club rep and has decided to move back in with younger sister Kat, a computer game addict who buys into every conspiracy theory around. Jo struggles to take her sister seriously when Kat claims the zombie apocalypse is real and happening, right now…in Birmingham. Alongside gym bunny Amar, the upbeat and ready to face things head on character and his oldest friend Sunny, a wannabe misanthrope who’d rather sit out the apocalypse from the comfort of his sofa, Kat, Jo, Sunny and Amar find themselves trapped together on board Dorothy, a narrow boat on the Grand Union canal. As they journey along the canal in their tightly packed living quarters, friendships develop, alliances form, arguments occur and romance blossoms. Along the way, they realise there is no escaping the problems of everyday life, even in a zombie apocalypse.

The Royal Television Society commemorates 60 years in Wales with an evening dedicated to Swansea-born screen writer and executive producer, Russell T Davies, hosted by Gethin Jones.

Russell has penned ground-breaking shows such as Queer As Folk and The Second Coming, while his recent adaptation of A Very English Scandal for the BBC has won numerous awards.

This year, his latest drama, Years And Years, received outstanding critical acclaim.

We’ll speak with Russell about his entire career including, of course, Doctor Who and its family of shows.
