What have you been watching? Including Travelers and Mr Robot

It’s “What have you been watching?”, my chance to tell you each week what movies and TV I’ve been watching recently and your chance to recommend anything you’ve been watching. TMINE recommends has all the TV shows TMINE has ever recommended and TV Reviews A-Z lists every TV show ever reviewed here

It’s Thanksgiving in the US this week, after which it’s basically December and Christmas, so everything’s just about coming to a halt on the broadcast networks, ready for a January restart. That means there aren’t as many regulars to worry about and WHYBW can revert to its normal time of Tuesday – at least for this week.

That does mean I’ve also not quite had time to watch the latest episodes of Babylon Berlin, though, but I hope to have caught up by next week. Lovely wife is poorly and since I’m worried that Marvel’s Inhumans might actually kill her, we’ve held off watching the series finale, too.

However, even if the broadcast networks are taking a break, the cable and streaming services are carrying on apace, as is the rest of the world. Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed the first episodes of Future Man (US: Hulu) and There’s… Johnny! (US: Hulu), while Boxset Monday took in Marvel’s The Punisher (Netflix). I’ll be passing a third-episode verdict on Frankie Drake Mysteries (Canada: CBC; UK: Alibi) on Thursday, and reviewing the first episodes of Marvel’s Runaways (US: Hulu) and The Indian Detective (Canada: CTV; UK: Netflix) next Monday. Sisters (Australia: Ten) will have to be consigned to the “never going to happen” pile, though, I’m afraid.

After the jump, I’ll be looking at the latest episodes of the current regulars: The Brave, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Mr Robot, SEAL Team and Travelers. See you in a mo!

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Les témoins and Veszettek

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens – assuming anyone’s bought anything, of course

One new acquisition, one new airdate this week. First, remember all those shows I said last week that were coming to Walter Presents by year end? They’ve turned up today. For full details of all the shows, last week’s entry has it all but here they are on 4oD:

Also just turned up is Veszettek (Home Guards) (Hungary: Megafilm), which is about two brothers recruited by a local vigilante group who end up discovering it’s a bit hard to tell goodies from baddies in real-life.

Acquisition of the week is AXN’s Stana Katic drama Absentia, of which I reviewed the first three episodes. That’ll be on Amazon some time next year.

Belated airdate of the week is for the second season of Les témoins (Witnesses), which was on Channel 4 for its first season but is now on BBC Four, starting 9pm next Saturday (25th November). I haven’t seen it, but I’ve already covered it a bit and given Audrey Fleurot is in it, I will be watching it. Two hours of that on Saturday, two hours of Babylon Berlin on Sunday – that’s a lot to get through of a weekend…
