It’s been another reviews-light week this week, thanks principally to there being a bank holiday and there not being much to watch. Plus I’ve been busy. However, things are going to be a little quieter for me next week and there’s at least a couple of new shows worth watching coming up, so I should have some reviews for you in June. Hoorah!

What TMINE is currently watching…

I’m a little further into season 3 of Baron Noir (France: Canal+; UK: Amazon), but not yet done, so hold your horses on that. I also watched Charlie Brooker’s Antiviral Wipe (UK: BBC Two), which was welcome but not totally different from all previous wipes. It was moderately depressing, since I’d given up watching the news of late on the general grounds of its general depressingness, so I got to watch all the depressing things I’d missed. But there was at least an element of optimism in there and it was nice to see the return of Cunk.

Could have done with some Adam Curtis, though.

Usual lockdown rules, even though lockdown is easing: I’m going to try to watch all of these but there’s a fair chance I may end up watching none because Life.

I haven’t got around to watching Anna Kendrick’s new thing, Love Life (US: HBO Max), but have every intention of catching that over the weekend. Lovely wife has expressed an interest in watching Steve Carrell’s Space Force (Netflix), so there’s a good chance I’ll have seen at least one episode of that before Monday, but hopefully more. Who knows? Maybe it’ll even be a Boxset?

That’s it from the US, though*, but Australia will be offering Cold War thriller Operation Buffalo (Australia: ABC) on Sunday, so that’ll be on the line-up, too.

* I really need to check What time, TMINE, to see if there are only foreign shows on Netflix that I’ve missed, don’t I? Because if I don’t read TMINE, who on Earth else will, hey?

Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet

After the jump…

After the jump is the diminishing list of regulars: What We Do In The Shadows and new arrival Star Girl, as well as the season finales of both One Lane Bridge and Mystery Road. But Apple TV+’s Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet made a surprise guest appearance with a quarantine episode, so I watched that as well. All of those in a mo.

What have you been watching? Including Snowpiercer and Stargirl

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.

Kermode and Mayo’s Home Entertainment Service (UK: BBC Four)

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.

Barkskin (US: NatGeo; UK: Disney+?)

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.

Snowpiercer (US: TNT; UK: Netflix)

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).

See you in a mo!
