One Night in Miami

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

This week, I’ve not been watching much. WandaVision (Disney+) has moved on to the 70s and The Brady Bunch, amongst other sitcoms, and the story is slowly opening up. I’ve got as far as episode three of Lupin (Netflix), which proved to be a bit darker than the preceding episodes, but still quite fun.

In films, I tried to give One Night in Miami (2021) (Amazon Prime), based on the play of the same name, a go. But despite some great performances, I found it a bit dull (possibly because it works better as a play), so gave up after about 45 minutes.

But that’s about it. I’m going to try to give The CW (US)’s Walker a whirl some time this week – it’s a reboot of Walker Texas Ranger (US: CBS). But it’s Lockdown 3.0, so who knows?

How about you, though? What have you been watching?
