HBO (US)’s Watchmen

This week’s reviews

My iPad is repaired (more or less). Productivity has returned.

This week, I’ve reviewed three new shows: the first episodes of Treadstone (US: USA; UK: Amazon) and Watchmen (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic), as well as the entire first season of Living With Yourself (Netflix). They were all pretty good shows, too, which was a bonus.

What’s coming this week

I’ve not watched any movies this week at all again. Sorry. More sorry – there’s not much new TV coming our way, although there are going to be a few new returning shows, at least.

That means Boxset Monday/Tuesday is going to be one of the usual intended suspects, I suspect: season two of Impulse (YouTube), season one of Modern Love (Amazon), season two of The Hookup Plan (Netflix) or season one of Beau Séjour (Belgium: Éen; UK: Walter Presents). Joining that crew is season two of The Kominsky Method (Netflix), so we’ll see how it goes.

Epix (US)’s Pennyworth

The regulars

It’s the usual usual after the jump: Batwoman, Evil, Magnum PI, Mr InBetween, Mr Robot, Stumptown, Titans and Total Control. With Pennyworth available as of today on StarzPlay in the UK, I thought I’d finish off the final two episodes in one go. I’ve even had time to watch three episodes of Engrenages (Spiral).

Let’s talk about all of them after the jump. Before that, guess which one has been promoted to the regulars list.

Normally, I’d write a rambly introduction to one of my Boxset reviews, but seeing as I reviewed season 3 yesterday, without further ado, let’s get on with the review of season 4 of Le Bureau des Légendes (The Bureau)

It’ll have to happen after the jump, though. Spoilers, you understand.
