What have you been watching? Including Hightown

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

Extraction (2020)

Previously on TMINE

TMINE’s regular schedule isn’t really compatible with a busy workload and lockdown, so as usual, it’s been a bit of a review-lite week this week. Covideodrome did manage to take in Netflix’s new blockbuster, Extraction (2020) (TBH, it’s the kind of movie that shouldn’t be on a streaming service but on the big screen, but there you go). But that’s it for reviews.

So I’m guessing that for the time being at least, I’m going to have to confine reviews to WHYBW, which is probably going to be on Thursdays for the near future at least.

Parks and Recreation
Parks and Recreation special

What TMINE is currently watching…

I’m four episodes into season 3 of Baron Noir (France: Canal+; UK: Amazon) and I’m pleased to report that it’s as good as the first season and better than the second so far. Fingers crossed, I might have finished it by next week, so it could well be a Boxset Monday. Yes, I know what I just said.

A quiet backburner project that Lovely Wife and I are running is season 3 of The Crown (Netflix), which is proving very interesting in lots of ways. But that’s ongoing, so I’ll save my comments until we finish the season.

I also watched the Parks and Recreation charity special. This was… okay. But then I only ever thought Parks and Recreation was okay – something Lovely Wife seems to agree with, as she works her way through it on Sky Comedy as another backburner project. Still, it was nice to see the cast ‘together’ (or at least interacting in character) again.

Stargirl

Next on TMINE

There’s more TV on the way this week, but as usual, Covid-19 rules apply to the following new shows: I have every intention of watching all of them, but might not be able to, for one reason or another.

I’m hoping to get round to I Know This Much is True (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic) at some point, but that started on Sunday, so it’s not going well so far. Friday brings us The Great (US: Hulu; UK: StarzPlay) as well as Inhuman Resources (Dérapages) (France: France 2; UK: Netflix) and White Lines (Netflix).

Coming Sunday is Snowpiercer (US: TNT; UK: Netflix), while Tuesday brings us Stargirl (US: DC Universe) – not to be confused with the very different Disney+ show. And on Wednesday, there’s Blood & Water (Netflix).

One Lane Bridge

After the jump…

Also coming after the jump are the usual regulars: For Life, Mystery Road, One Lane Bridge and What We Do In The Shadows. But I’ll also be previewing Hightown (US: Starz; UK: Starzplay), which starts on Sunday in both the US and the UK.

See you in a mo!

What have you been watching? Including Betty and Upload

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

It’s been a quiet week for TV reviewing on TMINE this week, since I’ve basically been busy as f*ck. And not just recording a podcast. Sorry about that. And I had such plans, too!

But I have been watching TV, just not reviewing it, as you’ll soon see…

Next on TMINE

Coming up after the jump, I’ll be reviewing Betty (US: HBO; UK: Sky Comedy) and Upload (Amazon). I have every intention of doing another Covideodrome, too, seeing as I’ve rewatched Inception (2010) and watched Faster (2010) and Extraction (2020) this week. It’s just a question of when…

There’s more TV on the way this week, but as usual, Covid-19 rules apply to the following new shows: I have every intention of watching all of them, but might not be able to, for one reason or another. That and the fact it’s a Bank Holiday tomorrow.

On the streaming services, as mentioned last week, Amazon now has season 3 of Baron Noir (France: Canal+). However, since then, it’s dropped the price tag, so now it’s free to Amazon Prime members, so there’s a significantly greater chance I’m going to watch it now.

Meanwhile, Netflix has The Eddy coming on Friday, but that’s a jazz musical, so there’s no chance I’m watching that, and Valeria is probably a bit too girly for me.

On regular old cable in the US, I Know This Much is True (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic) is coming on Sunday, but that’s about it as all the US broadcasters have started postponing the shows they’ve already got in the can, to make sure they’ll actually have something new to air in autumn.

Baron Noir could well have his day this week…

The regulars

After the jump, as well as those two new shows, it’s the usual regulars: For Life, Mystery Road, One Lane Bridge and What We Do In The Shadows, as well as the season finale of Westworld. That said, I’ve not had the chance to watch much TV for the past two days, so I’ve not seen the absolute latest episodes of either For Life and What We Do In The Shadows, so I’m a bit behind.

See you in a mo!

Look at that. I reviewed some tele. It’s almost like this is a TV blog or something. This week, I’ve let you know all about One Lane Bridge (New Zealand: TVNZ1) and Defending Jacob (Apple TV+). But that’s not all I’ve watched…

Next on TMINE

Coming up after the jump, I’ll be reviewing The Secrets She Keeps (Australia: Ten; UK: BBC Four) and Penny Dreadful: City of Angels (US: Showtime; UK: Sky Atlantic). But there’s more TV on the way this week – as usual, though, Covid-19 rules apply to the following new shows: I have every intention of watching all of them, but might not be able to, for one reason or another.

In the US, HBO will be giving us skating show Betty but that’s about it. However, on the streaming services, Netflix will be offering us Summertime, Almost Happy, Hollywood, and Into The Night, while Apple TV+ gives us its first UK show, Trying. Meanwhile, Amazon has Upload for us.

I’ve also just noticed that Amazon now has season 3 of Baron Noir (France: Canal+). I’d love to watch that but you can only rent or buy it, and I’m cheap. You might not be, though.

I’m going to try at least one of those, I reckon. Maybe more. How about you?
