What have you been watching? Including Doom Patrol, The Twilight Zone and Das Boot

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

Yes, a day late. Would you have expected anything else from me of late? But this really is only temporary – my workload should finally be abating a tad next week, so WHYBW should be back on Monday again.

In the past week, I did manage to review the first episode of Perry Mason (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic), but that was it. Not that there was much new TV last week, so actually that was a pretty high success rate.

Dark

What TMINE has been watching

I’ve got one more episode further into season 3 of Baron Noir, so the end is nearly in sight. I also finished the first episode of season 2 of Das Boot, but rather than try to boxset that, I’ve learned my lesson – I’m adding that to the regulars and trying to do one episode a week. Should have thought of that with Baron Noir, shouldn’t I?

I’ve also started on season 3 of Dark. I’m pleased that three episodes in, the thing I was worried about at the end of season 2 has simply led to even more of the same as before, rather than shark-jumping. However, the whole show has now become in the process even more infinitely complicated. Somehow.

There’s no point trying to review it episode by episode, so I’ll try to Boxset that for next week. Once I’ve finished reading some Cliff Notes about Schopenhauer. It’s that kind of show.

Head High

Next on TMINE

There’s a new New Zealand TV show out: Head High. That’s about secondary school rugby, though, so the chances of me loving it are small (I had enough of secondary school rugby at secondary school). But let’s see what happens.

Warrior Nun starts on Netflix on Thursday, so I might give that a try. But that seems to be all the new shows out this week. As usual, don’t be too surprised if I missed something and a surprise review pops up, though.

We’ve also watched another Disney movie: Aladdin (2019). Hopefully, I can Covideodrome that, along with Bad Boys For Life (2019) some time this week. Coming to Disney+ on Friday, though, are Hamilton (a recording of the theatrical performance) and Frozen 2 (2019), so I’m pretty sure they’re going to be our weekend viewing – and next week’s Covideodrome offerings.

The Twilight Zone

After the jump…

After the jump, reviews of the latest episodes of Condor and Stargirl, as well as the aforementioned Das Boot. Doom Patrol and The Twilight Zone both returned last week, so I’ll be covering them, too. See you in a mo.

Airdates

What time, TMINE? Including Ted Lasso, Perry Mason, Spides, Sommerdahl, Sygeplejeskolen, Noces rouges, Les Petits Meurtres D’Agatha Christie, Balthazar, M’entends-tu? and El Presidente

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

I needn’t have worried about running out of TV last time on What time, TMINE? Turns out, there’s plenty of TV still out there.

Oops, I missed it

Les Petits Meurtres D’Agatha Christie (France: France 2; UK: Acorn TV)

“Agatha Christie’s masterful storytelling gets a dash of French flair in these sexy, witty mysteries”. Allegedly. You’re much better off reading Mr Thierry Attard’s reviews

Episodes one to three are available now.

Balthazar

Balthazar (France: TF1; UK: Acorn TV)

Suave, smart, and somewhat strange, Raphaël Balthazar (Tomer Sisley) can make the dead speak like no one else. As a forensic pathologist in Paris, he works with no-nonsense chief inspector Hélène Bach (Hélène de Fougerolles) to solve the city’s most disturbing crimes. But there’s one case that continues to haunt him – the murder of his wife more than a decade ago.

Acquisitions

Only one acquisition this week that didn’t have a premiere date: TV 2 (Denmark) and Arte (France)’s DNA, which will air later in the year.

Full details of when and where you can watch Ted Lasso, Perry Mason, Spides, Sommerdahl (The Sommerdahl Murders), Sygeplejeskolen (The New Nurses), Noces rouges (A Deadly Union), Can You Hear Me? and El Presidente after the jump
