Jessica Jones
Marvel’s Jessica Jones

This week’s reviews

Despite my ironing pile not being especially big this weekend, I still managed to work through not only the whole of season three of Netflix’s Marvel’s Jessica Jones but also to review Cinemax (US)’s Jett.

Meanwhile, this week’s Orange Thursday featured Apollo 13 and on top of all that, I’ve managed to watch the first episodes of a few other shows, all of which I’ll be talking about after the jump: Showtime (US)’s City on a Hill, AMC (US)’s NOS4A2 and HBO (US)’s Los Espookys.

I feel quite pleased with myself. Yay me!

Reef Break

What’s coming this week

Tomorrow’s Orange Thursday will take in Men in Black: International (2019) and Tokyo Story (1953). Season 2 of Netflix’s Dark hits teh Interweb on Friday, so that could well be Boxset Monday, and ABC (US)/M6 (France)’s Reef Break will probably get a Tuesday review.

After that, there are bound to be surprises. For me and you.

Lobo in Syfy’s Krypton

The regulars

The InBetween took a break last week, so after the jump, I’ll be looking at the latest episodes of Harrow, Perpetual Grace LTD, Swamp Thing, as well as the season finale of Mr Black. One of those might be getting a promotion to the recommended list.

Krypton has also returned and I watched it.

See you in a mo.

Good Omens
Good Omens

This week’s reviews

With summer season ending a whole bunch of regular shows and with TMINE’s workload (and social life) being quite high at the moment, the reviews list hasn’t been so big this week, unfortunately. I’ve watched a whole bunch of shows, but so far, I’ve only had time to review the first season of Amazon’s Good Omens.

Meanwhile, this week’s Orange Thursday featured Always Be My Maybe (2019) and First Man (2018)

But coming up after the jump, I’ll (finally) be looking at the first episodes of Catch-22 (US: Hulu; UK: Channel 4) and American Princess (US: Lifetime).

What’s coming this week

Coming up at some point this week will be the usual Orange Thursday, which will definitely feature Apollo 13 (1995) at the very least, as well as a review of the first episode and perhaps more of NOS4A2, as well as a preview of Showtime’s forthcoming City on A Hill.

I have a full and confident expectation of being able to watch the third and final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones (Netflix) this weekend that undoubtedly will be proved false, unless I have an awful lot of ironing to do. Cinemax’s Jett will also be starting this Friday, as will HBO’s Los Espookys, so I’ll try to watch them both at some point, too.

New shows that I’ll probably be skipping: Grand Hotel will be starting on Monday in the US, which is an updated, soapy version of Spain’s period epic Gran Hotel, which seems like a terrible idea to me. I’m also just not young enough to watch HBO’s Euphoria, which starts on Tuesday and is full of oodles of teen sex and drug-taking apparently.

Shudders.

Amazon’s Too Old to Die Young will be available from Friday, but in a clash between it and Jessica Jones, I’m afraid it’s going to lose this week. But maybe next week. Or the next.

YMMV.

Ben Kingsley in Perpetual Grace LTD

The regulars

After the jump, I’ll be looking at the latest episodes of Harrow, The InBetween, Mr Black and Perpetual Grace LTD, as well as the season finale of Warrior. And even though it’s already been cancelled, I thought I’d watch the second episode of Swamp Thing.

The observant will notice that for, I think, the first time in WHYBW history, the ‘recommended list’ is empty. Shock, horror! Will there be any promotions soon? Maybe. We’ll see.

See you in a mo.

This week’s reviews

It’s been a busy old week for TMINE. Looks like the summer season is really kicking off, doesn’t it? Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed:

Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed:

And this week’s Orange Thursday featured John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and The Favourite (2018). Not bad, hey?

Always Be My Maybe
Randall Park and Ali Wong in Always Be My Maybe

What’s coming this week

…but also not great. Those with long enough memories will recall that I said last week that “Good Omens is available on Amazon from Friday, so we’ll definitely be catching that for Boxset Monday”. Except it wasn’t. So much for definitely, hey?

To be fair, we’ve watched five out of six episodes, so it’s just a case of finding the time to watch the sixth episode in between the latest episodes of Masterchef Australia and Love Island. It’ll happen, hopefully tonight or tomorrow, but before the weekend, anyway. Just not this Monday – my time machine’s broken.

Also coming your way – at some point, he says, avoiding any definite statements – are American Princess (US: Lifetime) and at least one episode but maybe all of NOS4A2 (US/UK: AMC). And Orange Thursday will definitely include Always Be My Maybe (2019) at the very least.

I’ve still not watched Catch-22 or What/If. Soz. But maybe this weekend, hey?

The regulars

The regulars list continues to dwindle. After the jump, I’ll be looking at Harrow, Mr Black, and the penultimate episode this season of Warrior, for sure. I’ll also be covering the final two episodes of The Hot Zone, as well as the season finales (Ed: What? Already?) of The Twilight Zone and What We Do In the Shadows. And I did a rapid trawl through the remainder of The Society. But that’s your lot – summer, hey?

See you in a mo.

This week’s reviews

Only one this week, thanks to the Bank Holiday weekend cramping my style:

And last week’s Orange Thursday reviewed Glass (2019) and Snowpiercer (2014).

Otherwise, that was it. Sorry about that. To make up for it, though, I’ll be reviewing both Five Bedrooms (Australia: Ten) and Blood and Treasure (US: CBS) after the jump.

American Princess
Lifetime (US)’s American Princess

What’s coming this week

Tomorrow’s Orange Thursday will look at John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and The Favourite (2018). Good Omens is available on Amazon from Friday, so we’ll definitely be catching that for Boxset Monday. DC Universe’s Swamp Thing is also starting on Friday, so that’ll probably be Tuesday’s review (although maybe swap the order on those two). And on Sunday, American Princess starts on Lifetime (US), so I might give that a crack as well at some point.

I’ve still not watched Catch-22, but I will. At some point. What/If, though, which was cloaked in mystery before its launch but is now available for all to see on Netflix, sounds like it’s terrible, so I still might not catch so much as a frame of it. Still.

Ezekiel Patrol
Doom Patrol

The regulars

As usual, I’ll be talking about the latest episodes of Harrow, Mr Black, The Twilight Zone, Warrior and What We Do In the Shadows. Inconveniently, The Hot Zone has been airing two episodes a night this week, but I’ve managed to catch both of last night’s and I’ll be reviewing them, too. And we’ll also be having a chat about the season final of Doom Patrol.

See you in a mo.
