Happy New Year from TMINE

Hello, everyone. Welcome to the far-flung sci-fi future of 2019.

How are you enjoying it so far? Been cloned and harvested its organs to cure any of your diseases yet? Or maybe you’re being asked to pass the Voight-Kampff by your HR department even as we speak.

Anyway, whatever you’re doing, TMINE’s back, you’ll be excited to hear! As usual, it’s a phased return to work for TMINE. This afternoon will bring some new Airdates, while The Daily News will be back on Monday, although the TMINE Facebook page has been featuring the highlights over the break. I’ll hopefully be revealing the latest BFI and BAFTA events this afternoon, too, although that might be a staggered return.

When it comes to reviews, WHYBW will be back to its usual Wednesday slot next week. There have been a few new shows over the Christmas break, so I’ll hopefully be doing a Boxset Monday featuring either season 2 of Marvel’s Runaways or Stan (Australia)’s Bloom. I’ll also be previewing Syfy (US)’s Deadly Class, but I’ll probably be skipping The Fosters spin-off Good Trouble, on the general grounds I didn’t watch The Fosters – but you never know.

However, after a bit of Christmas soul-searching, I’ve decided to put Weekly Wonder Woman on permanent hiatus until the comics get good again – soz, Diana fans, but it’s a lot of effort for a lot of mediocre stuff at the moment, despite the return of both Aphrodite and Ares in the latest issues. What to do on Thursdays instead, though? Hmm. I’ll have to have a think about that.

That’s it for now and who knows what other goodies I might bring you, too. Everyone get good pressies?

Film reviews

What movies have you been watching? Including Ghost in the Shell, Guardians of the Galaxy – Volume 2 and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

It’s “What have you been watching?”, my chance to tell you each week what movies and TV I’ve been watching recently and your chance to recommend anything you’ve been watching. TMINE recommends has all the reviews of all the TV shows TMINE has ever recommended, but for a complete list of TMINE’s reviews of (good, bad and insipid) TV shows and movies, there’s the definitive TV Reviews A-Z and Film Reviews A-Z. But it’s what you have you been watching? So tell us – if you want to live

This week, to cover all I’ve been watching while I was away on vacation in August, I’m breaking up WHYBW into manageable chunks. Yesterday, I dealt with all the boxsets I managed to make my way through and later in the week – probably on Tuesday, now I think about it… – I’ll be looking at the episodes of new and regular shows that I’ve watched, too.

But today, it’s movie time! So after the jump, I’ll be filling you in on what I thought about Ghost in the Shell (2017), Guardians of the Galaxy – Volume 2 (2017) and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016).

What have you been watching? Including Ozark, Somewhere Between, Sing, and Beauty and the Beast

It’s “What have you been watching?”, my chance to tell you each week what movies and TV I’ve been watching recently and your chance to recommend anything you’ve been watching. TMINE recommends has all the reviews of all the TV shows TMINE has ever recommended, but for a complete list of TMINE’s reviews of (good, bad and insipid) TV shows and movies, there’s the definitive TV Reviews A-Z and Film Reviews A-Z. But it’s what you have you been watching? So tell us! Ah go on. Go on, go on, go on

August is nearly here, which means TMINE is about to take it’s traditional month off from talking about TV in order to lounge around by a pool and try to read a book without falling asleep for a change. Naturally, of course, all the new shows are starting up now so there’s no slouching to be done just yet, though.

I’ll be reviewing both Midnight, Texas (US: NBC; UK: Syfy) and Pulse (Australia: ABC) over the next couple of days, but after the jump, I’ll be looking at the first episodes of Somewhere Between (US: NBC) and Ozark (Netflix). I’ve also caught a couple of movies out the corner of one eye, so I’ll be reviewing Sing (2017) and Beauty and the Beast (2017), too.

But as it is the last WHYBW before the August vacations, as usual it’ll be a little special and I’ll be applying my standard “Can I really be shagged to catch up with it when I get back?” test to the current list of shows, including Game of Thrones, Salvation, Snowfall, Will and Twin Peaks, as well as the returning Shooter. Can you guess which ones I can really be shagged to catch up with when I get back? Ah go on.
