A short but sweet Chuck reunion

It’s just Joshua Gomez, Ryan McPartlin and Zachary Levi, but it’s nice to see the three of them back together, all the same.

This week’s reviews

It was less sunny this weekend, so TMINE returned to its traditional activity of skulking in the dark, doing the ironing and watching lots of TV. As a result, Boxset Monday featured Stranger Things 3.

Meanwhile, last week’s Orange Thursday was a double-punch combo of Shaft (2019) and The Lego Movie 2 (2019).

What’s coming this week

Orange Thursday is a big unknown at the moment, since I didn’t make it to the cinema to watch the latest Spider-man as planned and I haven’t yet watched any other movies. Hopefully, I’ll watch at least one by tomorrow – I suspect it’ll be Atomic Blonde.

Canadian show Departure starts tonight in Canada, so I might review that, although given it’s on Universal in the UK tonight as well, there might not be much point – after all, y’all can watch it, too.

Pandora starts in the US next Tuesday, so I might do a separate review for that, or I might just roll it into the next WHYBW, depending on my workload.

Netflix also rolled out Family Reunion today, although multi-camera comedies are a bit of a turn-off, so I’ll probably be skipping it. Plus I’m off to a wedding on Friday, so I won’t have time to watch any boxsets.

Basically, it’s all going to be surprises, all the way down, but probably not that many.

The regulars

As TMINE’s summer vacation gets ever closer, it’s time to start winnowing down the viewing queue. Next week, I’ll be using the tried and tested “Can I be arsed to catch up with this when I get back from my holidays?”, but this week I’ve used its close relative: “Can I be arsed to watch the next episode of this?”

As predicted, I gave up on The InBetween last week, so that was a good start that left this little list of regulars, all of which I’ll cover after the jump: City on a Hill, Harrow, Jett, Krypton, Legion, Perpetual Grace LTD, The Rook and Swamp Thing.

But no fewer than three of those are for the chop this week because they’ve failed the test – yes, I can’t even be arsed to watch the next episode.

Which ones? Obvious clue for one them: there are only 10 episodes in season 2 of Harrow, and I’ve watched nine of them already…

Olivia Munn gets off ‘the Eurostar’ in The Rook

There is a known phenomenon in TV, in which producers assume that they can get away with inaccuracies because while some people might notice there’s a problem, anyone without their local or specialist knowledge won’t notice because they won’t know any better.

What then to make of episode 2 of Starz (US)’s super-powered spy show The Rook, which is available on Virgin Ultra HD in the UK? Last week, I queried where US agent Olivia Munn had come from when she arrived on an East Midlands line train in St Pancras. You could tell it was an East Midlands line train not through any spoddy trainspottery knowledge about train types but because it said “East Midlands” on the side.

However, this week it was revealed she wasn’t coming from the American Embassy in Beeston, but had actually come in from the continent “on the Eurostar”.

Which brings us to an interesting question: would a US viewership with enough cash to watch premium cable channel Starz not know what a Eurostar looks like – or at the very least, to know that the East Midlands isn’t somewhere near Paris?
