What have you been watching? Including Trust and The Handmaid’s Tale

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

Hmm. Not many new shows out this past week. How strange. That means that as well as catching up on all the regulars I missed last week, I’ve mainly been concentrating on movies, such as The Avengers: Infinity War, and passing verdict on Killing Eve (US: BBC America; UK: BBC One/BBC Three).

Cobra Kai (YouTube Red) came out today and Danish YA dystopian drama Rain (Netflix) is out on Friday, so although it’s a Bank Holiday Weekend here in the UK, I’ll be giving them a whirl before next WHYBW if I can – I imagine the torrential rain we’ll no doubt be getting might help no end with that.

After the jump, though, I’ll be having a gander (at last) at Trust (US: FX; UK: Sky Atlantic), as well as the regulars: The Americans, The Good Fight, Harrow, Krypton, Legion, SEAL Team, Silicon ValleyTimeless, and Westworld. Plus Lovely Wife and I made it through the first episode of the returning The Handmaid’s Tale – we can talk about what larks that was, after the jump.

What have you been watching? Including Westworld and The Looming Tower

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

This week’s review count has been pretty low, with just a few movies in Movie Monday and the whole of The Terror (US: AMC; UK: AMC UK) to TMINE’s name. Nevertheless, I am a bit behind schedule, after having watched all of that. Still, it could be worse – Harrow is still in the viewing queue, as is Legion, so they’ll have to wait, but I’ll be doing a third-episode verdict on Killing Eve (US: BBC America; UK: BBC One/BBC Three) later in the week and because there haven’t been any other new shows, I’ve caught up with everything else.

So after the jump, with SEAL Team on holiday yet again, a look at an otherwise remarkably full list of the latest episodes of the regulars: The Americans, The Good Fight, Krypton, Silicon Valley and Timeless, as well as the final episode of The Looming Tower. And, oh look – Westworld is back.

Will I ever get round to reviewing Trust? You never know…

What have you been watching? Including Black Lightning and Killing Eve

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

The flurry of new Spring shows has been dying down of late, but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped regaling you with reviews of the latest and greatest – or at least freshest – shows. True, Trust and The Terror are still sitting in that viewing queue, looking ever more unappealing, but I’m still going to give them a shot. And elsewhere, I have at least given you reviews of:

As well as a third-episode verdict on The Crossing (US: ABC; UK: Amazon). Incidentally, in case you haven’t visited that The Detail review recently, it turns out that it really is a remake of ITV’s Scott & Bailey. They kept that one quiet (at first).

Being the lazy type, I can’t be bothered to check the worldwide schedules for new shows, so let it all be as much of a surprise to me as it is to you if a new one materialises for me to review – or as if I actually get round to Trust and The Terror.

After the jump, a look at the latest episodes of the regulars: The Americans, Deep State, The Good Fight, Harrow, Killing Eve, Krypton, Legion, The Looming Tower, SEAL Team, Silicon Valley and Timeless. We’ve also had the season finale of Black Lightning, so I’ll be letting you know how that went, too.

What have you been watching? Including The Americans and Legion

It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend anything you’ve been watching this weekfortnight

TMINE was on holiday last week but fortunately, I’ve now managed to review pretty much all the new shows that have started airing in that time:

I’ll be reviewing Killing Eve (US: BBC America; UK: BBC One/BBC Three) in the next couple of days and seeing as Channel Five have gone and bought CTV (Canada)’s The Detail, I’ll be giving that a whirl, too, with next week’s Boxset Monday set to be Netflix’s Lost in Space.

Regular readers will notice that I’ve not yet reviewed Trust (US: FX; UK: Sky Atlantic) or The Terror (US: AMC; UK: AMC Global). They’re a bit of a ‘work in progress’, with Trust being a bit of a slog so far, but I will get round to them at some point, particularly The Terror since I do love a naval story.

I also gave Amazon’s Dangerous Book for Boys a go, but didn’t even make it through the first episode, since it was a bit too ‘US family comedy’ for me, so I can’t really give it a real review.

Spring is officially here, however, which means that as well as in with the new, it’s out with the old. That means that this week’s WHYBW? is not only chock full of new and returning shows, including The Americans and Legion, it’s also waving goodbye to a few shows that have aired their season finales, namely Counterpart, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Magicians and Will & Grace.

I haven’t had the time (or really the inclination) to watch the new season of Plebs, but after the jump, double-helpings (mostly) for the rest of the regulars: Black Lightning, The Crossing, The Good Fight, Harrow, Krypton, The Looming Tower, SEAL Team, Silicon Valley and Timeless. See you in mo – can you guess which show will be getting a promotion?

What have you been watching? Including Splitting Up Together and Roseanne

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

It’s the last WHYBW for a fortnight, as TMINE is off on its Easter holidays next week. Naturally, a whole bunch of new shows have been timed to coincide with this, presumably as part of some super-villain’s masterplan to give me a stress-induced heart attack.

In the past week, I’ve reviewed (and even previewed):

On top of that, I’ll be looking at ABC (US)’s Splitting Up Together and Roseanne after the jump, too. But I’ve still got Trust (US: FX; UK: Sky Atlantic) and The Terror (US: AMC; UK: AMC Global) in the viewing queue, although there’s a little time before they air in the UK, so if I don’t manage to work my way through them in the next couple of days, I’ll do my best when I get back. Let’s see how it goes.

However, Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Station 19 is never going to be my cup of tea, so I’ll give that a miss, and CTV (Canada)’s The Detail might be equally unlucky, but I’ll do my best.

Counterpart and Will & Grace were on holiday this week, so after the jump, as well as Roseanne and Splitting Up Together, I’ll be looking at the usual regulars: Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Good Fight, Harow, Instinct, The Looming Tower, The Magicians, SEAL Team and Timeless, as well as the returning Silicon Valley.
