Well Intended Love
Airdates

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Well Intended Love, The Other Two, High Seas and The Act

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

As usual, it’s mostly Netflix shows announcing airdates this week, but we have a few others.

Acquisitions

The following shows have been acquired this week, but don’t yet have a premiere date:

  • Netflix has picked up the South Korean version of its own series, Designated Survivor. CJ ENM’s Designated Survivor: 60 Days will be available on Netflix some time in July
  • It’s also picked up SBS (South Korea)’s stuntman spy drama Vagabond. That’s going to be available on Netflix in September.

Premiere dates

Well Intended Love

Well Intended Love (China: Sohu TV; UK: Netflix)

Premiere date: Friday, May 17

To receive a bone marrow transplant sooner and to continue her career, an actress with leukaemia enters into a secret marriage with the CEO of a company. Despite the conspiracies and misunderstandings they encounter, the two find true love.

The Other Two

The Other Two (US: Comedy Central; UK: E4)

Premiere date: Thursday, May 23, 10pm

The Other Two is a satire of the entertainment industry that takes a cynically witty look at fame, success and belonging. The story follows siblings Cary (Drew Tarver) and Brooke (Helene Yorke) who are trying to find their place in the world. Cary is an aspiring actor, struggling to find roles. Brooke, a former professional dancer, is just trying to work out what she’s doing with her life. But it all becomes a little more complicated when their 13-year-old brother Chase (Case Walker) finds sudden internet fame as teen pop sensation ChaseDreams…

Along with Hollywood-ready mother Pat (Molly Shannon) and newly hired manager Streeter (Ken Marino), Cary and Brooke must work hard to simultaneously cash in on their brother’s success and help him as he grows up in this crazy new world.

Spanish original. It’s the 1940s and the Bárbara de Braganza has just departed from Spain for Rio de Janeiro. Two sisters, Eva (Ivana Baquero) and Carolina (Alejandra Onieva), are as different as they are inseparable; and a handsome officer, Nicolás Sala (Jon Kortajarena), a man that fate has put in the wrong place, team together to solve a mystery – the murder of a passenger whose name does not appear in the passenger list and who no one remembers.

Also stars: Jose Sacristán and Eloy Azorín

Hulu's The Act

The Act (US: Hulu; UK: StarzPlay)

Premiere date: Friday, June 14

The Act is an anthology series telling a new true-crime story each season. The first season follows Gypsy Blanchard, a girl trying to escape the toxic relationship she has with her overprotective mother. Her quest for independence opens a Pandora’s box of secrets, one that ultimately leads to murder.

The OA – Part II

This week’s reviews

‘Tis the lull before the Easter storm, as there’s a plethora of new and returning shows about to hit the world’s airwaves. Indeed, WHYBW is momentarily shifting to Wednesday and maybe to Tuesday next week to take account of the fact that not only is Wednesday now the busiest TV night of the week (incumbents: The Magicians, Whiskey Cavalier, The Good Fight), a load of shows are joining them tonight (Happy!, What We Do In The Shadows) , so I won’t have time to watch them all tomorrow. I do need to do some work.

This week, however, I was able to review:

Orange Wednesday is taking a break this week, too, since

  1. I haven’t watched any movies yet this week
  2. I can’t do both WHYBW and Orange Wednesday on a Wednesday

Fingers crossed for next week, though, assuming WHYBW moves to Tuesday, which it probably will.

CityTV (Canada)’s The Murders

New shows

After the jump, I’ll be looking at The Murders (Canada: CityTV; UK: Universal). Last week, I did mention Hulu’s The Act; however, I belatedly realise that’s not just an anthology show but a dramatised true crime anthology show, so that’s now off the menu.

Coming our way tonight is FX (US)’s What We Do In The Shadows and later on in the week there’s NBC (US)’s Abby’s, so I’ll definitely be reviewing them. But I suspect there’ll be more shows for me to look at than that.

Friday, for example, should be bringing us Netflix’s French sci-fi original Osmosis and despite last week’s claim to the contrary, Amazon’s Hanna will also be hitting our screens on Friday, so either one of those is likely to be next week’s Boxset Monday.

CBS (US)’s Magnum P.I.

The regulars

Since we’re a day early, I’ve not had time to watch any more episodes of Il Miracolo (The Miracle) and lovely wife hasn’t yet felt the urge to watch the latest Star Trek: Discovery, so they’ll both have to wait until next time.

But Magnum P.I. and The Orville are both back. Can you guess which episode of Star Trek they knocked off this week in The Orville? All will be revealed after the jump.

Joining them are Doom Patrol and The Good Fight. See you in a mo!
