What time, TMINE? Including My Life is Murder and Watchmen

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

Another quiet week on the acquisitions front, probably because everyone’s saving their pennies for the new crop of US shows about to hit the airwaves. But we do have a couple of new premiere dates.

Premiere dates

My Life Is Murder
Lucy Lawless in Ten (Australia)’s My Life is Murder

My Life is Murder (Australia: Ten; UK: Alibi)

Premiere date: Tuesday September 24, 9pm

Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess, Spartacus, Battlestar Galactica) is a former cop turned private investigator who’s just so good, all her former colleagues keep turning to her for help. All she wants to do, though, is get her German coffee machine mixed.

Watchmen (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic)

Premiere date: Monday October 21

Sequel to Alan Moore’s famous graphic novel about vigilante superheroes set decades after the original story. That’s about all I can tell you, though, since details on it are scant and it’s an original story – plus it won’t air in the US until Sunday October 20. But at the very least Dr Manhattan is thinking about coming back from Mars.

A few mini-reviews before I go: My Life is Murder; Pandora; The Unsettling; and Pearson

As I pointed out during this week’s WHYBW, I’ve put in a pretty poor effort in the reviews stakes over the past week. I atoned for my lack of movie reviews, but although I took in Departure during WHYBW, that’s still not good enough is it?

So here’s not one, not two, not three, but four mini-reviews to leave you with before I go away on holiday:

  • My Life is Murder (Australia: Ten; UK: Alibi)
    Lucy Lawless is a former top cop whose ex-colleagues refuse to let her talents go to waste so keep roping her into investigations
  • Pandora (US: The CW)
    A young woman is orphaned by evil aliens, so she signs up to join the fight against them. Except maybe all is not what it seems
  • The Unsettling (US: Awesomeness TV)
    A teenage girl arrives at her new remote foster home. Soon, strange things start to happen around her.
  • Pearson (US: USA)
    Suits spin-off that follows Gina Torres to Chicago where she becomes a political operative.

What do they all have in common? Well, they all involve “speaking the plot out loud”.

All that after the jump…
