Plan Coeur
Netflix’s Plan cœur

This week’s reviews

Yep, Thursday again. Thought I’d have a proper day off yesterday. Schedule therefore screwed, even if I am now somewhat refreshed.

This week, even though I didn’t manage to Orange Thursday after all, I did at least get around to reviewing season two of Netflix’s Plan cœur (The Hookup Plan) for Boxset Monday. Otherwise, that was it – work was a bit mad, plus it turned out that Amazon’s release of The Feed was US only. Duh.

But fingers crossed, it’ll be easier next week.

Servant
Apple TV+’s Servant

What’s coming this week

Barring miracles, there won’t be an Orange Thursday today, but there will be next week, you’ll be happy to hear. I really will be covering The Fear of God, as well as The Philadelphia Experiment (no, not that one). Or maybe something else. But that’s the baseline.

It being Thanksgiving in the US today, and with Christmas just round the corner, it’s going to be a bit quiet TV-wise for the next few days, though, but Apple has just released the first three episodes of Servant, so that’ll be this week’s Boxset Monday. Fingers crossed.

Mr InBetween

The regulars

After the jump, we’ll be talking about the latest episodes of the regulars: Dollface, Evil, The Mandalorian, Mr Robot, Silicon Valley, Stumptown, Titans, Treadstone and Watchmen, as well as the season finale of Mr InBetween and two episodes of For All Mankind, seeing as Apple put a new one out today, a day early.

However, one of those is now just so bad, I can’t be bothered to watch it any more. Can you guess which?

On top of that, we’ll also be discussing the first episode of Spectrum’s revival of Mad About You. The new Will & Grace it is not.

See you in a mo.

The Laundromat
The Laundromat

This week’s reviews

Last week, I reserved the right to relocate WHYBW to Thursday. I was wise. As you can see. Work has been busy.

That didn’t stop me reviewing The Laundromat for Orange Thursday, and The Mandalorian (Disney+), though, but it did mean I’ve not discussed the second season of Netflix’s Plan Cœur (The Hookup Plan) as I’d hoped and I’ll only be discussing the first three episodes of Hulu (US)’s Dollface after the jump, rather than all 10.

The Exorcist
The Exorcist

What’s coming this week

Orange Thursday, tomorrow (I know), will take in The Fear of God: 25 Years of the Exorcist (1999) – gods willing – and maybe another movie if I manage to watch one tonight.

Work’s a little busy again Monday and Tuesday, but fingers crossed I’ll be able to talk about Plan Cœur. Or something else: Amazon has The Feed coming, and Netflix has Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings, but there’s no way on Earth I’m watching that. Spectrum’s Mad About You revival has six episodes for our delectation, but we’ll maybe see about watching that. It is Spectrum, after all.

Total Control
Total Control

The regulars

After the jump, as well as Dollface, we’ll be talking about the regulars (pretending for a moment that there was no TV on last night that I could have watched): Evil, For All Mankind, Mr InBetween, Mr Robot, Silicon Valley, Titans and Watchmen. Stumptown took another break last week, you’ll notice.

We also have two season finales to consider – Engrenages (Spiral) and Total Control – and there’s another Star Trek: Short Trek to mull over, too.

See you in a mo.

This week’s reviews

We’re back to our usual day this week for WHYBW, you’ll be glad to hear, although with the first few days of next week looking particularly busy, I reserve the right to relocate it again to Thursday.

Reviews-wise, over the past week I endured the first three episodes of Apple TV+’s See so you don’t have to and Orange Thursday covered Doctor Sleep (2019) and Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2018). But that’s been about it.

I did manage to watch the second season of Netflix’s Plan Cœur (The Hookup Plan) over the weekend, so hopefully I’ll be reviewing that some time in the next week. But it might just sit there, lurking in my memory, until there’s a lull in viewing, since this weekend’s looking particularly good…

Kat Dennings in Hulu's Dollface

What’s coming this week

Orange Thursday, tomorrow, will take in Netflix’s The Laundromat (2019), as well as whatever other movie I manage to watch tonight. Hulu’s Dollface is turning up on Friday, so I’ll try to watch that.

However, Lovely Wife has indicated she’d quite like to watch The Mandalorian (US: Disney+) at the weekend, but seeing as season 3 of Netflix’s The Crown is on the way then, too, I’ll try to get her to watch it before the weekend. Of course, she also wants to watch Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, so we’ll just have to see what comes out in the wash.

Whether once I’ve watched them I’ll be able to review any of them or whether I’ll simply be lying in an exhausted stupor at the start of next week will be an exciting voyage of discovery for us all.

The regulars

It’s the usual viewing queue again after the jump, with only Treadstone absent as I reviewed last week’s episode last week: Engrenages (Spiral), Evil, For All Mankind, Mr InBetween, Mr Robot, Silicon Valley, Stumptown, Titans, Total Control and Watchmen.

Impulse Season 2
Impulse

This week’s reviews

Since I took the radical move of having a day off on Friday (and most of Thursday), it’s been a slightly reviews-light week this week. However, I did cover the whole of season two of Impulse (YouTube), which you should definitely watch. Never mind the width – feel the quality.

The Morning Show
The Morning Show

What’s coming this week

The aforementioned day off meant I actually had some time to watch a couple of movies this week, so Orange Thursday tomorrow will be taking in both Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) and Terminator: Dark Fate (2019).

Friday is, of course, November 1, but it’s also the beginning of Fall 2019 – Part Three, since as well as Amazon giving us the second season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Apple is finally launching its Apple TV+ streaming service with no fewer than four new series: The Morning Show, See, Dickinson and For All Mankind.

Which of those will be Boxset Monday and/or Tuesday, I can’t say, but I suspect it’ll be either Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan or For All Mankind. Or both.

And I still might get round to watching season one of Modern Love (Amazon), season two of The Hookup Plan (Netflix), season one of Beau Séjour (Belgium: Éen; UK: Walter Presents) or season two of The Kominsky Method (Netflix).

Another new show starting within the next week is His Dark Materials (UK: BBC One), but I’ll probably skip that. You never know though.

Mr InBetween

The regulars

Bar Stumptown, which took a day off last week, too, it’s the usual usual after the jump: Batwoman, Engrenages (Spiral), Evil, Magnum PI, Mr InBetween, Mr Robot, Titans, Total Control, Treadstone and Watchmen. I also watched a couple of Star Trek: Short Treks. And joining all of them is the returning Silicon Valley.

That’s a lot, isn’t it? Time for a cull…

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.

The Kominsky Method
Netflix’s The Kominsky Method

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.
