When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Family Business, Trinkets and Ad Vitam

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


Another slow week for acquisitions, with only the redoubtable Walter choosing to buy anything at all, and he’s gone for a couple of French thrillers, both from France Télévisions:

  • Maman a tort (Mother is Wrong) 
  • Noces rouges (Crimson Wedding)

Otherwise, it’s all up to Netflix, as per usual.

Premiere dates

Netflix’s Trinkets

Trinkets (Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, June 14

Stars: Brianna Hildebrand, Kiana Madeira and Quintessa Swindell

Ad Vitam
Arte’s Ad Vitam

Ad Vitam (France: Arte; UK: Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, June 21

In an age of medical technology that allows people to stay young and live forever, a cop and a rebellious 20-something investigate the mass suicide of seven teenagers.

Netflix’s Family Business

Family Business (Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, June 28

Netflix French original focusing on Joseph (Jonathan Cohen), a 35-year-old who dreams of being a seasoned entrepreneur and is full of business ideas. But none of them take off so he stays working for his kosher butcher father (Gerard Darmon).

Then he learns that cannabis is going to be legalised, and decides to transform the family butchery and get his entire family involved.

Also stars: Julia Piaton and Liliane Rovère.

Orange Thursday: John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and The Favourite (2018)

It’s Thursday so it’s time to go to the movies with TMINE. This week, we’re both pretty modern and completely superhero-free as we’re going to be looking at:

  • John Wick: Chapter Three – Parabellum (2019): Third instalment in the Keanu Reeves, unstoppable martial arts hitman franchise
  • The Favourite (2018): Yorgos Lanthimos’ typically surreal take on the court of Queen Anne, featuring an Oscar-winning performance by Olivia Colman.

All that after the jump.

This week’s reviews

Only one this week, thanks to the Bank Holiday weekend cramping my style:

And last week’s Orange Thursday reviewed Glass (2019) and Snowpiercer (2014).

Otherwise, that was it. Sorry about that. To make up for it, though, I’ll be reviewing both Five Bedrooms (Australia: Ten) and Blood and Treasure (US: CBS) after the jump.

American Princess
Lifetime (US)’s American Princess

What’s coming this week

Tomorrow’s Orange Thursday will look at John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and The Favourite (2018). Good Omens is available on Amazon from Friday, so we’ll definitely be catching that for Boxset Monday. DC Universe’s Swamp Thing is also starting on Friday, so that’ll probably be Tuesday’s review (although maybe swap the order on those two). And on Sunday, American Princess starts on Lifetime (US), so I might give that a crack as well at some point.

I’ve still not watched Catch-22, but I will. At some point. What/If, though, which was cloaked in mystery before its launch but is now available for all to see on Netflix, sounds like it’s terrible, so I still might not catch so much as a frame of it. Still.

Ezekiel Patrol
Doom Patrol

The regulars

As usual, I’ll be talking about the latest episodes of Harrow, Mr Black, The Twilight Zone, Warrior and What We Do In the Shadows. Inconveniently, The Hot Zone has been airing two episodes a night this week, but I’ve managed to catch both of last night’s and I’ll be reviewing them, too. And we’ll also be having a chat about the season final of Doom Patrol.

See you in a mo.
