What have you been watching? Including Departure

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


This week’s reviews

I think it’s summer fever. That’s the only explanation for why I’ve done nothing over the past week. To be fair, neither have most TV networks.

Anyway, that’s meant no reviews of anything. But that doesn’t mean I’ve not watched anything. Oh no.

My Life Is Murder
Lucy Lawless in Ten (Australia)’s My Life is Murder

What’s coming this week

Friday marks the end of TMINE summer time – that fabled time of the year when I go off on holiday and don’t talk about TV until mid-August and don’t really get back into the reviewing-and-news groove until September.

That means that this is the last WHYBW? for a good long while. However, before I hang up my typing fingers on Friday, I plan to review at least Pandora (US: The CW) and maybe even The Unsettling (US: HBO). My Life is Murder (Australia: Ten; UK: Alibi) started today, so I’m going to give that a whirl, too.

On top of that, although I never quite got round to doing Orange Thursday last week, I did at least put the movie-watching in, with Κυνόδοντας (Dogtooth) (2009), Atomic Blonde (2017) and the bonus of 47 Ronin (2013) being the order of the day. So that’ll be tomorrow’s Orange Thursday – the final one before TMINE’s holidays.

But after the jump, one last delight – new show Departure (Canada: Global; UK: Universal), which is all about a missing plane. They just keep disappearing these TV planes, don’t they?

Pater Familias
Darren Gilshenan in ABC (Australia)’s Harrow

The regulars

I did a little bit of pruning of the TMINE viewing queue last week, but this week will see the full application of the scalpel-like “Can I be arsed to catch up with this when I get back from my holidays?” to the dwindling viewing queue.

Harrow has just aired its season finale, mind, so will be spared the knife. But what among City on a Hill, Legion, Perpetual Grace LTD and Swamp Thing can I be arsed to catch up with when I get back in August?

Find out after the jump.

What time, TMINE? Including Departure, Spitsbroers and Designated Survivor: 60 Days

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

A few acquisitions this week that the networks are going to sit on until they’re ready to release them into the world:

Otherwise, it’s all new premiere dates. Also, I don’t know if I was wrong when I said The Rook was going to be available on StarzPlay from Monday, but Virgin is now claiming it’s got exclusive rights to the show, so that might be worth checking before you invest in a subscription to either service.

After the jump, all the deets on Departure, Spitsbroers (The Score), and Designated Survivor: 60 Days.
