The Rook

This week’s reviews

It was a lovely sunny weekend, so all plans last week to review an entire boxset of something were obviously going to fall at the first hurdle. That means that all the TV I’ve managed to review this week is The Rook (US: Starz; UK: Virgin).

Meanwhile, last week’s Orange Thursday was equally deficient, only managing to take in Ralph Breaks The Internet (2018).

Oh well.

Shaft
Shaft (2019)

What’s coming this week

Tomorrow’s Orange Thursday will definitely feature last week’s also-ran The Lego Movie 2, as well as Shaft (2019) – not to be confused with previous entries in the franchise Shaft (1971) and Shaft (2000).

By hook or by crook, Boxset Monday (or Tuesday) will be season three of Stranger Things (Netflix), which will be available from tomorrow, giving me even more of a run-up.

On the other hand, it’s supposed to be sunny this weekend, too. Oh, well. Let’s see what happens.

Apart that, it’s anyone’s guess. Summer, hey?

The regulars

The InBetween was on yet another holiday last week, so I think I’m going to give up on it, simply because I’m going to start forgetting what’s been happening, both between episodes and by the time I have dementia, which is probably when the final episode of the season airs some time in 2047.

Otherwise, after the jump, we’ll have the regulars: City on a Hill, Harrow, Jett, Krypton, Legion, Perpetual Grace LTD, and Swamp Thing. I also found the time to watch another episode of NOS4A2 and I gave a new show a try: Netflix’s period Spanish murder-mystery Alta Mar (High Seas).

See you in a mo.

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.

Acquisitions

Not that many acquisitions this week, with only Alibi picking up any new shows and they’re both mini-series:

  • Paramount (US)’s Waco
  • TNT (US)’s I Am The Night

Both crime dramas, obviously.

Premiere dates

NOS4A2 (US/UK: AMC)

Premiere date: Tuesday August 13, 9pm

Based on Joe Hill’s best-selling novel of the same name, NOS4A2 follows Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a gifted young woman with the supernatural ability to find lost things. This puts her on a collision course with Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto), an immortal villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of his imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law.

Also stars: Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Virginia Kull, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Jahkara Smith.
