What have you been watching? Including Doctor Who and Black Lightning

It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend to fellow TMINE readers anything you’ve been watching this week, assuming Disqus’s anti-Linux bias doesn’t stop you in your tracks

Marvellous. After having becoming a bit shallow over the past few weeks, TMINE’s viewing queue has begun to fill up again. And that’s before The CW unleashes all its new shows this week, ABC (Australia) unveils spy show Pine Gap on Sunday, and Netflix jumps up, shouts “Boo!” and releases both season 3 of Marvel’s Daredevil and its remake of The Haunting of Hill House on Friday.

Crikey. I’ve not even started season 3 of Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle yet and that’s been out since Friday.

This past week, however, I have passed third-episode verdicts on Magnum P.I. (US: CBS), Manifest (US: NBC) and Mr InBetween (Australia: Showcase), and I’ve watched a good few other shows, too, about which we can talk after the jump. This week, of course, saw the return of Doctor Who with a new showrunner and a new Doctor. But Black Lightning and SEAL Team also returned, so we can discuss them, too. I made a bit more headway with Maniac, as well, and I’ve kept my eyes glued to a big bunch of the new US shows, too: A Million Little Things, God Friended Me, Happy Together and The Neighborhood. Plus, of course, there are the stalwart regulars: The Last Ship and You.

Will and Grace is back, too, but what with My Kitchen Rules (South Africa), Masterchef Australia and The Great British Bake-Off, we’ve not had a chance to watch it in The Big Room. Maybe next week.

What TV’s on at the BFI in October/November? Including Doctor Who – Earthshock, Vic and Bob’s Big Night Out, and Watership Down

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

A really bumper season of TV is coming up at the BFI – enough for two months, one might think, but despite being billed as October/November, almost all of it’s happening in November.

As well as a comedy season that’ll see the likes of Jennifer Saunders, Tracey Ullman, Lenny Henry and Jo Brand in conversation, there are airings of Nighty Night, I Love Lucy, reunions of The Real McCoy‘s cast, and a The Young Ones Q&A. On top of that, there’ll be previews of series 5 of People Just Do Nothing, BBC4’s forthcoming The Secrets of British Animation and Vic and Bob’s Big Night Out, and BBC1/Netflix’s new version of Watership Down.

There’ll also be a US TV documentary about Jane Fonda and a special event to celebrate the HD release of Doctor Who classic Earthshock, complete with Q&A with writer Eric Saward and Adric himself, Matthew Waterhouse.

Details after the jump. Excellent!
