It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend to fellow TMINE readers anything you’ve been watching this week
Previously on TMINE
While TMINE has been very good for copying and pasting YouTube embed codes into hastily written up pieces about viral videos this week, in terms of reviews, it’s been a bit of a bust. In fact, WHYBW is on a Friday this week, that’s how slack things have got.
But don’t worry, I have reviews aplenty after the jump.
What TMINE is currently watching…
I’m still four episodes into season 3 of Baron Noir (France: Canal+; UK: Amazon), so no Boxset Monday for that. I’ve also got not further with Upload (Amazon), Tales from The Loop (Amazon), The Crown (Netflix) and a few other shows I’ve started. Sorry again.
I also didn’t start watching I Know This Much is True (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic), The Great (US: Hulu; UK: StarzPlay), Inhuman Resources (Dérapages) (France: France 2; UK: Netflix), White Lines (Netflix) or Blood & Water (Netflix). And I probably won’t now. Sigh.
But COVID. That seems to be a good excuse for everything.
I did try to watch Kermode and Mayo’s Home Entertainment Service (UK: BBC Four), but it was shortly after the point where Mark Kermode explained (as usual) that up until recently he’d not really watched much TV… ever and just after they presented the show’s highlights, which were basically a bunch of BBC Three shows and some movies in which I had no interest that I realised…
…I love Wittertainment, but as much as I love their film knowledge and reviews, I can easily go without their views on TV and hearing them might even make me think less of them.
Next on TMINE
There’s more TV on the way this week. Season two of Homecoming (Amazon) is now available, but I’m not bothering with that – you can if you want to. Barkskins (US: NatGeo; UK: Disney+?), an eight-part adaptation of Annie Proulx’s novel about a conflict between French and English settlers in a small 1690s settlement in forested territory that is now Quebec, starts on Sunday. Again, you can watch that if you want to.
But that’s your lot. Honestly, it’s a good job it’s a Bank Holiday this weekend, because now I have an excuse not to review either of those.
After the jump…
After the jump are the usual regulars: Mystery Road, One Lane Bridge, What We Do In The Shadows and the season finale of For Life. I’ll also be looking at new shows Snowpiercer (US: TNT; UK: Netflix) and Stargirl (US: DC Universe).
