What time, TMINE? Including Seven Types of Ambiguity, The Heights, Dead Still and Roswell: New Mexico

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

It’s been a couple of weeks since the previous What time, TMINE? and the likes of Walter have been busy. That means we’ve got a whole bunch of new acquisitions and airdates.

After the jump, you can find out when and where you can watch The Heights, Dead Still and Roswell: New Mexico. But first, all the new shows that don’t yet have premiere dates, as well as one show that is now available but I didn’t know it had been acquired – until now

Acquisitions

  • Walter Presents has picked up Start (Russia)’s Gold Diggers/Russian Affairs
  • …VRT (Belgium)’s De Twaalf (The Twelve) and RTL4/Videoland/VTM (The Netherlands)’s Amsterdam Vice
  • …and 13th Street Channel (France)’s Trauma
  • Sundance Now has acquired Elisa Viihde (Finland)’s Shadow Lines

Oops, I missed it

Seven Types of Ambiguity

Seven Types of Ambiguity (Australia: ABC; UK: My5)

Seven Types of Ambiguity is a really interesting exploration of similar territory to Rashomon, but set in modern day Australia. Based on the Elliot Perlman novel of the same name, it sees a young boy abducted from school, only for him to be found relatively quickly by the police. Oddly, he’s unharmed and turns out to have been taken by the ex-boyfriend (Xavier Samuel) of the boy’s mother (Janet King‘s Leeanna Walsman); in turn, his potential accomplice turns out to have a connection to the boy’s father (The Slap/Secret City‘s Alex Dimitriades). Why did Samuel abduct the child? Was Walsman secretly having an affair with Samuel? Was Samuel stalking her for revenge? Or was there some other motivation altogether?

Over the course of the season of six episodes, the series follows the action from the points of view of various characters, each episode focusing on a different one. It starts with Dimitriades, then follows Samuel’s psychiatrist (The Matrix/Lord of the Rings/V for Vendetta‘s Hugo Weaving), Samuel’s neighbour (Crownies/Janet King‘s Andrea Demetriades), Dimitriades’s best friend (The Slap/Secrets and Lies‘s Anthony Hayes), Samuel’s lawyer (East West 101‘s Susie Porter) and ultimately Walsman, where all is finally revealed. But each episode is still really about one or more specific relationships and their ambiguities.

What have you been watching? Including Operation Buffalo and Love Life

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

Previously on TMINE

TMINE has had a little bit more time to watch things this week – and more importantly, to write about them. Interested in Steve Carrell’s new show, Space Force (Netflix)? Then not only can you read TMINE’s third-episode verdict from earlier in the week, I’ve watched a few more episodes since then – I’ll tell you about them after the jump.

Covideodrome made a reappearance, too, taking in the Very Important Movie Just Mercy (2019).

Das Boot

Next on TMINE

Usual lockdown rules, even though lockdown is easing: I’m going to try to watch all of these but there’s a fair chance I may end up watching none because Life.

As far as I can see, though, there’s not much on. Certainly not much new. Season 2 of Das Boot (Germany: Sky; UK: Sky Atlantic) starts on Monday. Italian drama Curon (Netflix) starts on Wednesday, but that doesn’t look any more appealing than Saudi Arabian drama Whispers (Netflix), which starts the same day.

Unless I start looking at some of the shows sitting in my backlog, next week is going to see more than a couple of visits to Covideodrome on TMINE…

Star Girl

After the jump…

After the jump, as well as the aforementioned Love Life and Space Force, there’s the infinitesimally small list of regulars: Star Girl and What We Do In The Shadows. Joining them will be new Australian Cold War dramedy Operation Buffalo. All of those in a mo.
