What have you been watching? Including Condor, Succession and Cloak and Dagger

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

Not quite as complete a reviewing week as I’d hoped, as Impulse took up more time than I’d expected, as did work. But I did manage to squeeze out a look at Paramount (US)’s American Woman. I did, in the end, give AMC (US)’s Dietland a try but given there was a close-up of a woman using a razor to cut open her own breast in the first minute, I decided it might not be for me and gave up pretty speedily.

I’m not sure I can bring myself to watch anything on OWN – that’s the Oprah Winfrey Network to you – so Strange Angel might be all I’ve got up my sleeve in the next couple of days as far as new shows go. However, as season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage is on its way, I feel a bit of a boxset coming on.

That’s all to come, but after the jump, I’ll be looking at the latest episodes of the newly replenished TMINE viewing queue: Bron/Broen (The Bridge), CondorMarvel’s Cloak and Dagger, Mystery Road, Succession and Westworld.

What have you been watching? Including Legion and Westworld

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

Last week, I predicted a flood of new shows and here they all are already. Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed the first episodes of:

And passed a third-episode verdict on Mystery Road (Australia: ABC). But that’s not all of them. I’m not sure I’m going to be able to do Dietland (US: AMC; UK: Amazon), but I’ll give it a whirl; however, I’ll definitely be reviewing the first episode of Paramount (US)’s American Woman some time in the next couple of days and I’ll be aiming to review all of YouTube Red’s surprisingly good Impulse as well, although that might be something for Monday, as might Strange Angel (US: CBS All Access) – and anything else that pops up.

All these new things but the current viewing listing is dwindling something chronic. In fact, after the jump, I’ll only be looking at Bron/Broen (The Bridge), Westworld and the season finale of Legion. Crikey.

What have you been watching? Including The Americans

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

June’s here, which means the summer TV season is beginning in the US (and the winter season in Australia). It’s quite a long season mind, with new shows starting all the way through to August (those that dare brave TMINE’s holiday wrath, anyway), so brace yourself for lots of new shows over the next few months. Woo hoo!

Elsewhere, as well as mopping up the whole of the first season of Netflix’s Safe in one go, I’ve reviewed the first episodes of Reverie (US: NBC) and Picnic at Hanging Rock (Australia: Showcase; UK: BBC Two). I’ll be covering the first couple of episodes (at least) of movie spin-off Mystery Road (Australia: ABC) this week and I might even manage to watch Dietland (US: AMC; UK: Amazon), too, given the first two episodes are already available in the UK. Anything after that will be a bonus (eg Cobrai Kai, Movie Monday) – in particular, Succession (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic) looks dull and worthy, despite the presence of Brian Cox (the other one), but I’ll try to squeeze it in, at least.

However, I definitely won’t be watching Ryan Murphy’s trans-friendly 80s New York drama Pose (US: FX) because of the golden TMINE motto: “Tough on musicals, tough on the cause of musicals.”

However, the remnants of the spring season are still with us, so after the jump, Bron/Broen (The Bridge), Legion and Westworld, as well as the series finale of the already-missed The Americans.
