The OA – Part II

This week’s reviews

‘Tis the lull before the Easter storm, as there’s a plethora of new and returning shows about to hit the world’s airwaves. Indeed, WHYBW is momentarily shifting to Wednesday and maybe to Tuesday next week to take account of the fact that not only is Wednesday now the busiest TV night of the week (incumbents: The Magicians, Whiskey Cavalier, The Good Fight), a load of shows are joining them tonight (Happy!, What We Do In The Shadows) , so I won’t have time to watch them all tomorrow. I do need to do some work.

This week, however, I was able to review:

Orange Wednesday is taking a break this week, too, since

  1. I haven’t watched any movies yet this week
  2. I can’t do both WHYBW and Orange Wednesday on a Wednesday

Fingers crossed for next week, though, assuming WHYBW moves to Tuesday, which it probably will.

CityTV (Canada)’s The Murders

New shows

After the jump, I’ll be looking at The Murders (Canada: CityTV; UK: Universal). Last week, I did mention Hulu’s The Act; however, I belatedly realise that’s not just an anthology show but a dramatised true crime anthology show, so that’s now off the menu.

Coming our way tonight is FX (US)’s What We Do In The Shadows and later on in the week there’s NBC (US)’s Abby’s, so I’ll definitely be reviewing them. But I suspect there’ll be more shows for me to look at than that.

Friday, for example, should be bringing us Netflix’s French sci-fi original Osmosis and despite last week’s claim to the contrary, Amazon’s Hanna will also be hitting our screens on Friday, so either one of those is likely to be next week’s Boxset Monday.

CBS (US)’s Magnum P.I.

The regulars

Since we’re a day early, I’ve not had time to watch any more episodes of Il Miracolo (The Miracle) and lovely wife hasn’t yet felt the urge to watch the latest Star Trek: Discovery, so they’ll both have to wait until next time.

But Magnum P.I. and The Orville are both back. Can you guess which episode of Star Trek they knocked off this week in The Orville? All will be revealed after the jump.

Joining them are Doom Patrol and The Good Fight. See you in a mo!

Hudson and Rex
Canadian TV

Review: Hudson & Rex 1×1 (Canada: CityTV)

In Canada: Mondays, 8/7c, CityTV

For those of us growing up in the 70s and 80s, there was only one real Canadian TV show of note (or indeed one that aired at all in the UK): The Littlest Hobo. It was a jaunty, Lassie-esque affair married with the ‘wandering hero’ theme of shows such as The Fugitive, The Invaders and The Incredible Hulk, in which a homeless German Shepherd wanders from Canadian town to Canadian town, using its colossal intellect for a multitude of philanthropic ends and to solve all manner of crimes.

The Littlest Hobo

Running between 1979 and 1985 in Canada, the show left a lasting memory in the UK collective unconsciousness, and judging from the likes of Cavendish, the Canadian group mind, too.

It might also explain why Canada is now one of the few countries on Earth to remake Austria’s Kommissar Rex, in which a policeman and his multi-talented police dog solve crimes together:

Hudson & Rex

In contrast to Austria’s somewhat jokey comedy-drama Kommissar Rex, CityTV’s Hudson & Rex is a far more po-faced affair that seems to think that it’s a plain old police procedural… that just happens to co-star a dog. It stars John Reardon as a ‘cunning’ major crimes detective for the St John’s Police Department who teams up with German Shepherd Rex (Diesel von Burgimwald – no, really: they even have ‘introducing Diesel von Burgimwald’ in the titles).

Rex’s heightened senses keep Reardon hot on the trail of his suspects and together, they investigate puzzling crimes, from a kidnapping which reveals a much larger conspiracy at play to an art theft murder which runs deep into the world of high society. With Charlie’s deft detective work and Rex’s keen canine senses, this crime-fighting pair is unstoppable.

From the CityTV web site

To be fair, CityTV does bill the show as ‘lighthearted’ so it’s not intended to be 100% serious. But in terms of actual humour, the most I could detect from it are attempts to basically be The Littlest Hobo. I think that might actually be the joke.
