Chris O'Dowd and Rosamund Pike in State of the Union

What time, TMINE? Including e Legal and State of the Union

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

It’s been a quiet old week, this week. That’s what you get in August, right after a bank holiday, I guess.

So there have been absolutely no acquisitions announced this week and only two premiere dates.

Premiere dates

e Legal
Michaël Erpelding (Louis), Fanny Dumont (Floriane), Raphaëlle Bruneau (Fran Gerrits), Olivia Harkay (Valentine Dhénaut)

e Legal (Belgium: RTBF La Une; UK: TV5 Monde)

Premiere date: Thursday September 5, 6.40pm

Valentine, an ambitious lawyer, has built her own law firm, DE FACTO, Inc., specialized in legal issues involving new technologies of the information age. She just recruited her cyber specialist, Fran, who happens to be her half-sister, a hacker on parole to boot. Together the duo will help various alleged victims (or perpetrators) of cyber criminality. On the sidelines, their intern, Theo, a young intern aspiring to be a legal eagle and looking up to Valentine, helps or throws oil on the fire.

So I’m not sure if this is the first time it’s been on TV5 Monde but it’s the first I’ve heard of it and the first time I’ve seen TV5 promote it. It was made in 2017, too, so chances are, it’s relatively new.

Here’s episode one, if you want to give it a try:

Orange Thursday: Point Blank (2019) and The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019)

Despite there being a few new movies at the cinema worth watching, I’ve been at home a bit, saving cash because of the August holidays. As a result, I’ve learnt to appreciate the value of free movies on Netflix.

So this week’s Orange Thursday duo are a couple of Netflix Originals:

  • Point Blank (2019): Frank Grillo and Anthony Mackie reunite for an action movie remake, but maybe not of the Point Blank you were expecting
  • The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019): Chris Evans and a motley bunch of fellow Israeli spies accidentally set up a hotel in Africa to liberate Ethiopian refugees, in a movie based on a very odd true story

The observant will notice that all three of those men starred in Captain America: Winter Soldier. I don’t know if that was a deliberate choice by Netflix, but it’s probably quite hard now to find an actor who hasn’t been in a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.

Reviews after the jump.

What have you been watching? Including Glitch and False Flag

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

As we’re on the reduced August TMINE schedule still, last week’s previous WHYBW was mainly a chance for you all to recommend shows you’ve been watching and for me to catch up with the regulars in the viewing queue. I’ve done that now, so expect plenty of Boxsets and reviews in the next week or so.

But today, I’m going to focus on looking at the final episodes of all the shows that were in the regulars list before I went on holiday: Departure, Legion, Perpetual Grace LTD and Swamp Thing.

However, a few previous regulars returned to the airwaves/broadband connections in the past month, so I’ll also be looking at the new seasons of both False Flag and Glitch.

See you in a mo.
