It’s “What have you been watching?”, my chance to tell you what movies and TV I’ve been watching recently that I haven’t already reviewed and your chance to recommend things to everyone else (and me) in case I’ve missed them.
The usual “TMINE recommends” page features links to reviews of all the shows I’ve ever recommended, and there’s also the Reviews A-Z, for when you want to check more or less anything I’ve reviewed ever. And if you want to know when any of these shows are on in your area, there’s Locate TV – they’ll even email you a weekly schedule.
It’s Monday and WHYBW is here. Something’s gone wrong, surely. Indeed, work as usual. Damn money. But I also needed a little extra time to get through the big pile of TV that’s been building up over the week. That can only mean one thing: it’s time for a cull.
Some things will be coming off my viewing thanks to natural erosion: Endeavour has just finished its third season after only four episodes. Others will be disappearing anyway, thanks to unfavourable third-episode verdicts, although you’ll have to wait until after the jump (and tomorrow, in the case of Billions and Angie Tribeca) to know which are for the chop.
But it’s time for both Rebellion (Ireland: RTÉ One) and Byw Celwydd (UK: S4C) to leave this mortal coil. Rebellion‘s a fine historical, but with very little by way of characterisation to draw you in, just dry historical facts and a bit of shooting, so I’ve decided I’ve revised my GCSE history syllabus enough now. Byw Celwydd has a peculiar draw, simply because I know Cardiff well enough to enjoy the locations and the whole thing has a slight Caerdydd vibe, but it’s pure soap with dodgy production values, and I don’t do soaps, let alone ones with dodgy production values.
I also can’t be bothered with the latest episode of Baskets (US: FX), as I hear it’s exactly the same as the first episode.
So that means after the jump, you can find reviews of the latest episodes of 100 Code, American Crime, Angie Tribeca, Arrow, Colony, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Endeavour, The Family Law, The Flash, The Magicians, Grandfathered, Man Seeking Woman (Woman Seeking Man), Marvel’s Agent Cater, Okkupert (Occupied), Second Chance, Les hommes de l’ombre (Spin), The Shannara Chronicles, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, Supergirl and The X-Files. Can you guess which ones will be getting the chop?
In case you missed them, this week I reviewed the first episodes of: The X-Files (US: Fox; UK: Channel 5), Stan Lee’s Lucky Man (UK: Sky 1), Baskets (US: FX) and The Outsiders (US: WGN America); and ages and ages ago, I previewed Lucifer (US: Fox; UK: Amazon Instant Video) and The Magicians (US: Syfy), which started last week, too.
