Killing Eve
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Counterpart, Killing Eve, Future Man, Trust, No Activity and Elite

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

This week, all the acquisitions have premiere dates so let’s just get right down to it – especially since practically everything starts in the next week, so we’ll need to get a move on.

Premiere dates

No Activity Christmas Special

No Activity (Australia: Stan; UK: BBC Two)
Premiere date: Sunday, September 9, 10:30pm

Cops sit around on a stakeout, during which nothing much happens apart from them talking a lot. I’ve only watched the US remake, so I can’t really advise you on whether the original is any good, but co-creator Patrick Brammall stars in both and he’s usually pretty reliable.

Future Man

Future Man (US: Hulu; UK: SyFy)
Premiere date: Monday, September 10, 10pm

Video-game playing loser is recruited by kick ass soldiers from the future to stop the world going to pot. A mish-mash of explicit references to every 80s sci-fi movie you might care to mention – The Last Starfighter, The Terminator, Back to the Future – that will probably be funnier if you watch it stoned.

Episode reviews: 1

Donald Sutherland in FX's Trust
Donald Sutherland in FX’s Trust

Trust (US: FX; UK: BBC Two)
Premiere date: Wednesday September 12, 9pm

Multi-season anthology series based on the real-life escapades of the somewhat eccentric and rich Getty family. Excellent cast and Danny Boyle behind the scenes, but the rich twats tried my patience so much I couldn’t even get to the end of the first episode.

Episode reviews: 1

Kim Bodnia and Jodie Comer in Killing Eve
Kim Bodnia and Jodie Comer in Killing Eve

Killing Eve (US: BBC America; UK: BBC One)
Premiere date: Saturday, September 15, 9:15pm

British spy Sandra Oh tries to catch glamorous international assassin Jodie Comer, but generally makes a mess of things. Excellent and stylish when the episodes are written by Fleabag‘s Phoebe Waller-Bridge, distinctly not excellent the rest of the time.

Episode reviews: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6-7, 8

Counterpart

Counterpart (US: Starz; UK: StarzPlay on Amazon Prime)
Premiere date: Friday, September 28

A cold war between two opposing superpowers who face off against each in Berlin. The twist? The two superpowers are parallel Earths and everyone has a ‘counterpart’ who’s just like them, including mild-mannered JK Simmons. Or are they identical? Have the two universes diverged? If so why? And if we could meet each other, would be our own best friend or our own worst enemy?

Generally superb bit of spying that has a bump in quality in episode two, but is otherwise excellent. Give it a whirl, assuming you can get through all the hoops needed to watch it.

Episode reviews: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

Elite

Elite (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, October 5

Spanish Netflix original, so I haven’t seen it. But here be the plot:

When three working class kids enrol in the most exclusive school in Spain, the clash between the wealthy and the poor students leads to tragedy. Starring: Danna Paola, Miguel Herrán, María Pedraza.

Hugo Sanchez
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Le bureau (saison 3), La balada de Hugo Sánchez, Nit i Dia, All About the Washingtons and The Good Cop

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

The LA Screenings have gone and gone. That means that a lot of UK networks are currently mulling their options about what to acquire, rather than actually buying things – where do you think we live? Canada? – which means it’s been a bit quiet this week for US pick-ups.

But we do have least have Netflix to tide us over. Oh, and although I don’t normally bother with second and third seasons airdates, it’s probably worth mentioning (via Fans of European and World TV Dramas) that season 3 of Le bureau des légendes (The Bureau) is finally now available on Amazon Prime. Unfortunately, it’s through the Sundance Now channel, which will set you back £5.99 a month, although there’s a week’s free trial. Cheaper than Blu-Ray, mind.

Premiere dates

Hugo Sanchez

La balada de Hugo Sánchez (The Ballad of Hugo Sánchez) (Netflix)
Premiere date: Sunday, June 17

Spin-off from Netflix’s Club de Cuervos featuring the Hugo Sánchez character, who’s taking the Cuervos to a tournament in Nicaragua called “Duelo de las Aves”. For the first time, Hugo leaves his comfort zone to take charge of a team and his own life.

Nit i Dia

Nit i Dia (Night and Day) (Spain: TV3; UK: Channel 4/All4)
Premiere date: Sunday, July 1, 10pm

Picked up all the way back in April 2017 by our Walter, this “realistic” Catalan series sees happily married forensic pathologist Sara’s life go a bit pear-shape when she starts investigating an unidentified man’s body and it turns out he has a skull tattoo, just like the one a previous one-night stand had.

All About The Washingtons

All About The Washingtons (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, August 10

Autobiographical scripted comedy that follows Joey Washington (Rev Run aka Joseph Simmons) and his wife Justine Washington (Justine Simmons), playing fictionalised versions of themselves raising a family. After Joey decides to retire from a long career as legendary hip-hop royalty, his wife Justine, takes advantage of the opportunity to pursue a career of her own now that Joey is available to focus on raising the kids and keeping the house in order.

The Good Cop

The Good Cop (Netflix)
Premiere date: Friday, September 21

Feel-good procedural, from Monk creator Andy Breckman, that centres on Tony Danza, a lovable, yet not exactly honourable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules, and his son, Josh Groban, a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. The ‘odd couple’ become unofficial partners as Danza offers his son blunt, street-wise advice.
