This week’s reviews

Netflix decided to unleash a slew of new shows on us last week. Elsewhere, you’ll have seen TMINE’s verdict on The Stranger, thanks to Boxset Monday. Onisciente managed to keep me interested for one episode at least, and you can read about that after the jump.

But I’m still working my way through Ragnarok, which is going to be next week’s Boxset Monday or Boxset Tuesday, and I didn’t get a chance to look at Luna Nera (Black Moon) – I’m not convinced about its chances, given what’s coming over the next week.

Meanwhile, in the film world, Orange Thursday covered The Personal History of David Copperfield (2020) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2019).

What’s coming next

It’s Part II of Spring 2020 in the US. Over the next week, we’ll be getting more than a few new shows, including Briarpatch, Indebted, Interrogation, Katy Keene, For Life, and Tommy.

Meanwhile, from Friday, we’ve got Locke & Key on Netflix and Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet starting on Apple TV+.

I doubt I’ll be able to give everything my undivided attention, but I hope to give at everything a first glance at least – hopefully more.

Meanwhile in movies, tomorrow’s Orange Thursday will be reviewing A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2020) and… something else. I knew my Christmas viewing would run out some time.

The regulars

The regulars list, which is already pretty small, is going to start getting even smaller soon, since this week, I’ll be covering the season finales of both Evil and Stumptown. However, that still leaves 9-1-1: Lone Star, Avenue 5, Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector, The Outsider and Star Trek: Picard, the latest episodes of which I’ll also be covering.

I wonder if I’ll be dropping any of them, too, making the list even smaller. Let’s find out… in just a moment.

Miracle Workers

This week’s reviews

We’re entering week three of TMINE’s coverage of the Spring 2020 season and still the new shows keep coming, with a deluge set to hit in February. So far this week, I’ve covered the first episodes of 68 Whiskey (US: Paramount) and 9-1-1: Lone Star (US: Fox).

But there’s more to come after the jump as I look at the first episodes of Avenue 5 (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic), Medical Police (Netflix), Little America (Apple TV+), and Everything’s Gonna Be Okay (US: Freeform). And although it’s not a new show, since it’s such a big change from the first season, I’ll also be considering season two of Miracle Workers (US: TBS; UK: Sky Comedy).

Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens

What’s coming next

Looking ahead, coming in the next week, I’ll be covering Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens (US: Comedy Central), Outmatched (US: Fox) and Star Trek: Picard (US: CBS All Access; UK: Amazon).

And tomorrow’s Orange Thursday will be reviewing Knives Out (2019) and Angel Has Fallen (2019).

Lincoln Rhyme: God Complex
Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector

The regulars

The regulars list remains small but is still growing. Joining Evil and Stumptown this week are new shows 9-1-1: Lone Star, Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector and The Outsider. Will any of them make it to week three?

Find out more after the jump.

Boxset Monday: Spring 2020 – Part 1

Every Monday (or Tuesday), TMINE reviews an entire boxset of a TV show – if the weekend’s not been too busy

Monday’s TMINE is normally dedicated to a boxset, usually from Netflix or Amazon, but I’m still playing January catch-up and the Spring 2020 season has now started in the US and Canada – as has the Summer 2020 season in Australia – so let’s instead watch what basically amounts to a boxset worth of TV.

This week, we’re going to be looking at no fewer than eight new shows from around the world:

US TV

  • Deputy
  • Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist
  • FBI: Most Wanted
  • Dare Me
  • Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt For the Bone Collector

Canadian TV

  • Nurses
  • Fortunate Son

Australian TV

  • The Gloaming

We can talk about all of those after the jump.
