What have you been watching? Including Party of Five and Arrowverse crossover – part 2

It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend to fellow TMINE readers anything you’ve been watching this week

We’re midway through the second week back following the Christmas break, and already, we’ve unveiled a cornucopia of reviews. On Monday, Boxset Monday took in no fewer than eight new shows from the Spring 2020 season in the US, Canada and Australia:

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

And yesterday, The Outsider (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic) got checked out by TMINE, too. And there’s more to come tomorrow (and maybe Friday).

Today, however, we’ll only be looking at one new show – Freeform (US)’s reboot/update of Party of Five – and the very few regulars still in the viewing queue: Evil, Stumptown and the second half of Messiah.

Oh yes – and we’ll also take in the second, concluding part of The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths Arrowverse crossover, which is itself a tale of two halves.

Let’s talk about all of that after the jump.

Freeform’s upfronts 2019-20 – a rundown and clips from the new shows: Motherland: Fort Salem, Everything’s Gonna Be Okay and Party of Five

All through ‘upfronts’ week, TMINE will be revealing the new shows that are going to be hitting US TV screens from September 2019

It’s that time of year again – the ‘upfronts’. What’s that, I hear you ask?

What are the upfronts, TMINE?

It’s when all the US networks reveal to advertisers the new shows that are going to be hitting the TV screens some time from September 2019 through to nowish 2020. However, this isn’t the same as the international screenings, where buyers from TV networks around the world turn up to see what they’d like to acquire, so we won’t know what will be heading our way for quite some time.

This weekend, US TV networks killed off a whole bunch of existing shows (prompting howls of protest from their fans) and are about to commission a whole bunch of new shows (prompting howls of ‘you cancelled x for this rubbish?’ from said-same fans).

4. Freeform’s upfronts

As Freeform is the network formerly known as ABC Family, naturally enough it has it Upfronts on the same day as ABC’s. However, the lesser networks never normally announce many new shows, as they don’t really have much of a schedule to mention. Last year, for example, all Freeform had to announce at its upfronts was:

However, this year, three is the magic number, with ABC, Fox and NBC all announcing three new shows for the Fall. And now Freeform’s doing the same:

  • Motherland: Fort Salem
  • Everything’s Gonna Be Okay
  • Party of Five

How many of these will we end up seeing and when? Who knows? But welcome to the big leagues, guys.

Want to know more, as well as take a look at trailers for all of them? And do you want to get TMINE’s hottest of hot first takes? Then follow me after the jump…
