HBO's The Deuce
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including The Deuce, Law & Order: True Crime, X Company, Room 104, Snatch and Alias Grace

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

After last week’s deafening silence when it came to acquisitions, it’s all go this week, and we’ve got a flood of premiere dates, too, you’ll be glad to hear. Indeed, the only new acquisition that hasn’t already been given a premiere date is The Orville (US: Fox: UK: Fox UK), which I reviewed earlier this week. I’ll let you know when it’s revealed. I’m assuming it’s not going to be kept a secret, anyway.

After the jump, pop-pickers, I’ll be giving you the rundown of all the new acquisitions and their matching premiere dates. See you in a mo…

Prófugos (Fugitives)
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including Prófugos (Fugitives) and East Los High

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

No new acquisitions this week, guys, but we do have some premiere dates.

East Los High (US: Hulu; UK: My5)
Premiere date: September 11

I’ve already talked about this one, but we have a premiere date now.

Prófugos (Fugitives)

Prófugos (Fugitives) (Chile: HBO Latin America; UK: Channel 4)
Premiere date: September 20

The UK’s first ever Chilean import:

Fugitives opens with four men embarking on a high-risk operation, smuggling a petrol tanker of liquid cocaine from Bolivia to Chile. When the operation catastrophically unravels these four men are forced to go on the run. Despite hardly knowing each other and having little in common, their only hope of survival is staying together as they escape frantic pursuit from every direction.

 

 

Good Behavior
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including Good Behavior (US) and Dimension 404 (US)

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

Only a couple of acquisitions this week and as we got premiere dates at the same time as the news, more or less, we can do them both at the same time. Although I haven’t seen the second one.

Good Behavior (US: TNT; UK: Virgin Media)
Premiere date: September 11

Good Behaviour follows Letty Raines (Michelle Dockery), a thief and con-artist whose life is always one wrong turn, one bad decision from implosion – which is just how she likes it. Fresh out of prison, Letty is attempting to stay afloat – but when she overhears a hitman being hired to kill a man’s wife, she sets out to derail the job, setting her on a collision course with the killer and entangling them in a dangerous and seductive relationship. Juan Diego Botto, Terry Kinney and Lusia Strus also star.

TMINE’s verdict

Basically trying to do sexy conwoman/hitman fun but badly, since our heroine is a bit dense and doesn’t seem to realise that hitmen kill people for a living. Also, the plot doesn’t make any sense. Ever.

Episode reviews: 1, 2

Dimension 404 (US: Hulu; UK: Syfy UK)
Premiere date: October 3, 9pm

Dimension 404 is a science fiction anthology that explores the wonders – and terrors – of our digital age. From outrageous horror comedy to mind-bending action adventure, each episode tells a weird and wild sci-fi story, where the twist ending is just the beginning. Do not click back. Do not reload. You have reconnected… to Dimension 404. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television and across its six episode first season features a range of well-known actors including Patton Oswalt, Joel McHale, Lea Michele and Sarah Hyland.

TMINE verdict

Sounds a bit like they’re trying to do Black Mirror, don’t you think? Haven’t seen it, though.

The Good Place
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including The Good Place, The Gifted and Star

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

A little bit earlier expected, I know, but hey – it’s nearly September and there have been a few announcements, so I figured easing back into the swing of things with a round-up of all of August’s acquisitions and premiere dates might be a good idea.

First off, in acquisitions:

  • The Good Doctor (US: ABC; UK: Sky Living)
    Freddie Highmore is an autistic savant surgeon. Hasn’t aired in the US yet
  • Reformation (Germany: ZDF; UK: BBC Four)
    Martin Luther biopic. Hasn’t aired in Germany yet!
  • Snowfall (US: FX; UK: BBC Two)
    Cocaine drama set in 80s LA. I watched the first few episodes but it wasn’t that great.
    Episode reviews: 1, 2, 3
  • The Valley (Germany: TNT Serie; UK: Shudder)
    A young man who has lost his memory wakes up near the corpse of a young woman hanging in the harvested grapes.
  • Ronny Chieng: International Student (Australia: ABC; UK: BBC Three)
    Ostensibly Daily Show correspondent Ronny Chieng in a semi-autobiographical comedy about life at an Australian University – but basically Oz’s answer to Spaced. I ended up recommending it
    Episode reviews: 1-2, 3, 4, 5, 6

But we also have some premiere dates.

Spike TV's The Mist
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting again, TMINE? Including The Mist

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens

No new acquisitions this week, but we do have one new premiere date: all 10 episodes of Spike TV (US)’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Mist are going to be on Netflix from August 25th. Actually, that might be a new acquisition, because I didn’t know that Netflix had acquired it, but at the very least, that’s very definitely the premiere date. As for whether it’s worth watching, I reviewed the first episode but wasn’t impressed.
