What have you been watching? Including Schuld and El Ministerio del Tiempo

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

It’s been another quiet week for TV, thanks to the Thanksgiving break. If you like anthology and true crime shows, particularly ones based on podcasts, you could have course have watched Dirty John (US: Bravo; UK: Netflix).

I don’t, though, so I didn’t. Instead, I watched the rest of Narcos: Mexico. I also gave More4’s new German show, Schuld nach Ferdinand von Schirach (Shades of Guilt), a try and after mentioning it rather a long time ago, I finally made a start on El Ministerio del Tiempo (The Ministry of Time).

I’ll be talking about all of them after the jump. Joining them will be the few regulars that didn’t take a Thanksgiving holiday: Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Doctor Who, and Titans.

See you in a mo…

What have you been watching? Including Fighting Season and How To Stay Married

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

Despite Thanksgiving being just round the corner in the US – or maybe even because it’s nearly here – the airwaves and Internet had a bit more new to offer than last week. Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed YouTube Premium’s Origin and Netflix’s The Kominsky Method and Narcos: Mexico, but there have been a few other things. I don’t really bother with mini-series, but in case you do, HBO’s My Brilliant Friend and Showtime’s Escape at Dannemora both turned up this week.

I’m still trying to watch Amazon’s Beat, but let’s just say that after an exciting title sequence, not only does the plot get a bit silly, everything’s a bit X-rated and commute-unfriendly, so I’ve not managed to get more than 10 minutes in. But I have managed to watch some Australian TV, too, so I’ll be looking at The Fighting Season and How To Stay Married after the jump.

Also after the jump are the new regulars: Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Doctor Who, Happy Together, Magnum P.I. and Titans. See you in a mo…

What have you been watching? Including The Last Ship and You

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

Another slow week this week. Only Amazon served up something new, which it hid very well: new German original Beat, which hopefully should be better than You Are Wanted. I was too busy watching Homecoming to start that so unless something better comes along this week, Beat will be getting the Boxset Monday treatment next week.

That means it’s just the regulars again this week, although even that number is about to start dwindling. After the jump, then, the latest episodes of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Doctor Who, Happy Together, Magnum P.I. and Titans, as well as the returning Black Lightning. I’ll also be looking at the season finales of Pine Gap and You, as well as the series finale of The Last Ship. Will it all end well, and will there be any more promotions this week? You’ll find out in a mo…

What have you been watching? Including Tell Me A Story

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

It’s been a bit of a slow one, this week – yes, I’m talking about myself – but it’s also been a bit quiet for TV. I’m vaguely considering watching Amazon’s Homecoming, since:

  1. It stars Julia Roberts
  2. It’s from Sam Esmail (Mr Robot)
  3. Each episode is only about half an hour long
  4. I would have watched it last weekend, but I was away (!)

But that’s more or less been it for new shows, although I’ll be taking a look at the first episode of new arrival Tell Me A Story (US: CBS All Access) after the jump.

I’m sure the weekend will bring us something new, though. Gosh, if only there were a handy feature on this ‘ere blog that could tell me when new shows were starting

Time for the regulars, though. Black Lightning went on holiday this week, so after the jump, it’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Doctor Who, Happy Together, The Last Ship, Magnum PI, Pine Gap, Titans and You. There’s not one but two promotions in that list. Can you guess which ones will receive the TMINE blessing?

What have you been watching? Including Doctor Who and Black Lightning

Marvellous. After having becoming a bit shallow over the past few weeks, TMINE’s viewing queue has begun to fill up again. And that’s before The CW unleashes all its new shows this week, ABC (Australia) unveils spy show Pine Gap on Sunday, and Netflix jumps up, shouts “Boo!” and releases both season 3 of Marvel’s Daredevil and its remake of The Haunting of Hill House on Friday.

Crikey. I’ve not even started season 3 of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle yet and that’s been out since Friday.

This past week, however, I have passed third-episode verdicts on Magnum P.I. (US: CBS), Manifest (US: NBC) and Mr InBetween (Australia: Showcase), and I’ve watched a good few other shows, too, about which we can talk after the jump. This week, of course, saw the return of Doctor Who with a new showrunner and a new Doctor. But Black Lightning and SEAL Team also returned, so we can discuss them, too. I made a bit more headway with Maniac, as well, and I’ve kept my eyes glued to a big bunch of the new US shows, too: A Million Little Things, God Friended Me, Happy Together and The Neighborhood. Plus, of course, there are the stalwart regulars: The Last Ship and You.

Will and Grace is back, too, but what with My Kitchen Rules (South Africa), Masterchef Australia and The Great British Bake-Off, we’ve not had a chance to watch it in The Big Room. Maybe next week.
