What have you been watching? Including Crashing and Another Life

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

As I revealed on Monday, since…

  • I’m just back from my holidays
  • I haven’t yet caught up with all the regulars in the TMINE viewing queue
  • I’m still operating my “if it starts in August, I (probably) won’t review it rule”

…this week’s WHYBW will be briefer than normal and largely thrown over to you, gentle reader (which is ostensibly the point of WHYBW anyway).

So please, let everyone know what you’ve been watching of late and whether it’s any good. If you’ve never commented here before and have been reading for a while, now would be a good time to introduce yourself!

Some reviews…

However, I have tried to watch a few new shows over the past month and while most of them are boxsets that I’ll be reviewing at some point in the next few weeks in their own entries, I thought I’d throw out a few words on both Netflix’s Another Life and Channel 4’s Crashing after the jump.

Just a note that although I’ve also just finishing watching the first episode of Amazon’s The Boys and I’ve not properly warmed to yet, I’ve just realised that the Superman-esque main superhero is played by Banshee‘s Antony Starr. Plus as Karl Urban’s cod-English accent is highly entertaining, I’m going to hold off reviewing that until I’ve a few more episodes under my belt, at least.

What have you been watching? Including Departure

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

Tumbleweed

This week’s reviews

I think it’s summer fever. That’s the only explanation for why I’ve done nothing over the past week. To be fair, neither have most TV networks.

Anyway, that’s meant no reviews of anything. But that doesn’t mean I’ve not watched anything. Oh no.

My Life Is Murder
Lucy Lawless in Ten (Australia)’s My Life is Murder

What’s coming this week

Friday marks the end of TMINE summer time – that fabled time of the year when I go off on holiday and don’t talk about TV until mid-August and don’t really get back into the reviewing-and-news groove until September.

That means that this is the last WHYBW? for a good long while. However, before I hang up my typing fingers on Friday, I plan to review at least Pandora (US: The CW) and maybe even The Unsettling (US: HBO). My Life is Murder (Australia: Ten; UK: Alibi) started today, so I’m going to give that a whirl, too.

On top of that, although I never quite got round to doing Orange Thursday last week, I did at least put the movie-watching in, with Κυνόδοντας (Dogtooth) (2009), Atomic Blonde (2017) and the bonus of 47 Ronin (2013) being the order of the day. So that’ll be tomorrow’s Orange Thursday – the final one before TMINE’s holidays.

But after the jump, one last delight – new show Departure (Canada: Global; UK: Universal), which is all about a missing plane. They just keep disappearing these TV planes, don’t they?

Pater Familias
Darren Gilshenan in ABC (Australia)’s Harrow

The regulars

I did a little bit of pruning of the TMINE viewing queue last week, but this week will see the full application of the scalpel-like “Can I be arsed to catch up with this when I get back from my holidays?” to the dwindling viewing queue.

Harrow has just aired its season finale, mind, so will be spared the knife. But what among City on a Hill, Legion, Perpetual Grace LTD and Swamp Thing can I be arsed to catch up with when I get back in August?

Find out after the jump.
