Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
Like Christmas, Thanksgiving in the US seems to last about a fortnight, killing all work within its vicinity. As a result, there have been no new acquisitions this week and even premiere dates have been thin on the ground.
However, Walter Presents does have two new German thrillers and although these aren’t definite premiere dates, the best guess is that both of them are going to be available from next Friday (December 7), so I thought I’d tell you about them now before it’s too late. In both cases, these were Wednesday movies on the TV channel Das Erste that have been split into two episodes for Walter’s benefit.
No sign yet of a rescheduled premiere date for Das Boot, by the way. Looks like Sky Atlantic are going to wait until it’s finished airing in Germany before showing it here.
Auf kurze Distanz (Point Blank)
An undercover agent (Tom Schilling) suffers from inner conflict as he is supposed to betray his friend who is part of the Serbian sports betting mafia in Berlin.
Dead Man Working (Deadly Money)
Despite already having an English title, Walter has decided to rename this banking thriller Deadly Money. When a top banker falls from a roof at the pinnacle of his career, a bitter battle erupts between his employer and his widow.
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.
