Based on a series of books by award-winning New Zealand author, Charlotte Grimshaw, The Bad Seed tells the story of two brothers from the same dysfunctional family who, having escaped the desperate days of their early childhood, find their newly ordered lives falling apart when one becomes a suspect in a murder.
I was planning to review The Bad Seed today, since the first episode was on Sunday. However, I wasn’t paying attention to the schedules and it turns out that it’s been airing nightly this week, with the final episode set to air tonight. So instead, I’ll try to boxset the whole series at some point in the next week or so – assuming it’s any cop, of course.
When Iris and Willem cross paths, sparks fly and they cannot deny the intense chemistry between them… little do they know that their lives will soon become more entangled than they could possibly imagine.
Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City (Netflix) Premiere date: Friday, June 7
Fourth instalment of the series based on Armistead Maupin’s books, which started on Channel 4 in the UK in 1993 and was later revived by Showtime in the US in 1998 and 2001, and is now being revived again by Netflix.
Mary Ann (Laura Linney) returns to present-day San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter Shawna (Ellen Page) and ex-husband Brian (Paul Gross), twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann is quickly drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis), her chosen family and a new generation of queer young residents living at 28 Barbary Lane.
