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