Hello, gentle reader! TMINE is back from its August break and raring for action. The Daily News has already made its presence felt, like John the Baptist to the rest of TMINE’s Christ-like output, and will be returning to the usual weekday schedule forthwith (except next Monday, cos it’s a bank holiday).
But we’re not quite back to normal, because I’m still playing catch-up with my TV viewing. Plus I seem to have a stupid amount of work to deal with all of a sudden, so I’ve got to find the time to write everything!
So here’s a glimpse of the either action-packed or slightly reduced TMINE schedule for the rest of the month – delete as appropriate according to how much time I find I have.
This week, though, you can expect the usual Tuesday BAFTA events write-up. WHYBW will be here on Wednesday, but it’ll be primarily for you to talk about what you’ve been watching (hence the title), since I’ve not seen any of the regulars in the viewing queue. However, I have tried the first episodes of a few new shows, including The Boys, Another Life and Crashing, so might pass comment on them. And I hope that next week’s WHYBW will feature all the episodes of the regulars that have aired: Perpetual Grace LTD, Swamp Thing, Legion and Departure, as well as the second season of False Flag.
Orange Thursday should be on this week, since I’m off to see Hobbs and Shaw tonight, but as of yet, I’ve not got a second movie planned. However, next week’s Orange Thursday will cover two Netflix movies: Point Blank and The Red Sea Diving Resort.
And Friday will see the return of What time, TMINE?, to regale you with the latest premiere dates and acquisition news.
I might also crowbar in a BFI write-up for September’s schedule.
Before my holidays, I did promise I’d try to get through a big chunk of boxsets, and surprisingly I have. I didn’t get through any of 4 Blocks or Strange Report, unfortunately, but I managed to watch seasons three and four of Le Bureau Des Légendes.
On top of that, I also watched all of Netflix’s Wu Assassins and am halfway through season two of Mindhunter. I also have every intention of watching season 3 of GLOW at some point.
Exactly when I’ll be reviewing them, though, I haven’t quite worked out. Let’s just roll with it for now.
There’s been a decent release of new shows over the past month, from Australia’s Les Norton through to the US’s The Righteous Gemstones, with more to come. For the most part, the usual TMINE “If it starts in August, I won’t be reviewing it” rule will apply.
However, I’m going to try to preview Showtime (US)’s On Becoming A God In Central Florida, and since Epix (US)’s Pennyworth came out the day before I went on holiday, I’m going to try to catch up with it at some point.
Amazon’s Carnival Row starts on Friday, but is apparently pretty dull, so I might steer clear of it. Or I might do the first episode in next week WHYBW. Again, let’s see what I can get through – and how much time I have over the bank holiday weekend.
That’s the plan – let’s so how well it stands up to its encounter with the enemy: time itself!
