This week’s reviews

With summer season ending a whole bunch of regular shows and with TMINE’s workload (and social life) being quite high at the moment, the reviews list hasn’t been so big this week, unfortunately. I’ve watched a whole bunch of shows, but so far, I’ve only had time to review the first season of Amazon’s Good Omens.

Meanwhile, this week’s Orange Thursday featured Always Be My Maybe (2019) and First Man (2018)

But coming up after the jump, I’ll (finally) be looking at the first episodes of Catch-22 (US: Hulu; UK: Channel 4) and American Princess (US: Lifetime).

What’s coming this week

Coming up at some point this week will be the usual Orange Thursday, which will definitely feature Apollo 13 (1995) at the very least, as well as a review of the first episode and perhaps more of NOS4A2, as well as a preview of Showtime’s forthcoming City on A Hill.

I have a full and confident expectation of being able to watch the third and final season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones (Netflix) this weekend that undoubtedly will be proved false, unless I have an awful lot of ironing to do. Cinemax’s Jett will also be starting this Friday, as will HBO’s Los Espookys, so I’ll try to watch them both at some point, too.

New shows that I’ll probably be skipping: Grand Hotel will be starting on Monday in the US, which is an updated, soapy version of Spain’s period epic Gran Hotel, which seems like a terrible idea to me. I’m also just not young enough to watch HBO’s Euphoria, which starts on Tuesday and is full of oodles of teen sex and drug-taking apparently.

Shudders.

Amazon’s Too Old to Die Young will be available from Friday, but in a clash between it and Jessica Jones, I’m afraid it’s going to lose this week. But maybe next week. Or the next.

YMMV.

After the jump, I’ll be looking at the latest episodes of Harrow, The InBetween, Mr Black and Perpetual Grace LTD, as well as the season finale of Warrior. And even though it’s already been cancelled, I thought I’d watch the second episode of Swamp Thing.

The observant will notice that for, I think, the first time in WHYBW history, the ‘recommended list’ is empty. Shock, horror! Will there be any promotions soon? Maybe. We’ll see.

See you in a mo.

When’s that show you mentioned starting, TMINE? Including Too Old To Die Young, Warrior, LA’s Finest and Catch-22

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

Everyone’s been very good this week in revealing premiere dates for their new acquisitions. However, I did miss one show:

Oops, I missed it

Torpederna (Sweden: TV4; UK: Amazon)

Sonny gets out of prison after serving six years behind bars. During his time in prison he has started a secret relationship with his social worker Camilla. When getting out, he wants to live an ordinary life without any hustle. Finding a decent job is not the easiest task when you are an ex-torpedo.

This week’s reviews

It’s been a busy old week for TMINE. Looks like the summer season is really kicking off, doesn’t it? Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed:

Elsewhere, I’ve reviewed:

And this week’s Orange Thursday featured John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and The Favourite (2018). Not bad, hey?

What’s coming this week

…but also not great. Those with long enough memories will recall that I said last week that “Good Omens is available on Amazon from Friday, so we’ll definitely be catching that for Boxset Monday”. Except it wasn’t. So much for definitely, hey?

To be fair, we’ve watched five out of six episodes, so it’s just a case of finding the time to watch the sixth episode in between the latest episodes of Masterchef Australia and Love Island. It’ll happen, hopefully tonight or tomorrow, but before the weekend, anyway. Just not this Monday – my time machine’s broken.

Also coming your way – at some point, he says, avoiding any definite statements – are American Princess (US: Lifetime) and at least one episode but maybe all of NOS4A2 (US/UK: AMC). And Orange Thursday will definitely include Always Be My Maybe (2019) at the very least.

I’ve still not watched Catch-22 or What/If. Soz. But maybe this weekend, hey?

The regulars

The regulars list continues to dwindle. After the jump, I’ll be looking at Harrow, Mr Black, and the penultimate episode this season of Warrior, for sure. I’ll also be covering the final two episodes of The Hot Zone, as well as the season finales (Ed: What? Already?) of The Twilight Zone and What We Do In the Shadows. And I did a rapid trawl through the remainder of The Society. But that’s your lot – summer, hey?

See you in a mo.

This week’s reviews

Only one this week, thanks to the Bank Holiday weekend cramping my style:

And last week’s Orange Thursday reviewed Glass (2019) and Snowpiercer (2014).

Otherwise, that was it. Sorry about that. To make up for it, though, I’ll be reviewing both Five Bedrooms (Australia: Ten) and Blood and Treasure (US: CBS) after the jump.

What’s coming this week

Tomorrow’s Orange Thursday will look at John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019) and The Favourite (2018). Good Omens is available on Amazon from Friday, so we’ll definitely be catching that for Boxset Monday. DC Universe’s Swamp Thing is also starting on Friday, so that’ll probably be Tuesday’s review (although maybe swap the order on those two). And on Sunday, American Princess starts on Lifetime (US), so I might give that a crack as well at some point.

I’ve still not watched Catch-22, but I will. At some point. What/If, though, which was cloaked in mystery before its launch but is now available for all to see on Netflix, sounds like it’s terrible, so I still might not catch so much as a frame of it. Still.

The regulars

As usual, I’ll be talking about the latest episodes of Harrow, Mr Black, The Twilight Zone, Warrior and What We Do In the Shadows. Inconveniently, The Hot Zone has been airing two episodes a night this week, but I’ve managed to catch both of last night’s and I’ll be reviewing them, too. And we’ll also be having a chat about the season final of Doom Patrol.

See you in a mo.

It’s Wednesday. That must mean it’s time for WHYBW. Just as it has always been.

BTW, how’s the war with Oceania going?

This week’s reviews

It’s been a good week for reviews, with not just one but two boxsets:

Just a reminder: tomorrow’s Orange Thursday (I don’t know why I’ve just italicised that) will be taking in both Glass (2019) and Snowpiercer (2014), just in case you haven’t done the background viewing already.

What’s coming this week

I’ve reviewed most of the shows on last week’s list. However, I’ve only just started watching Five Bedrooms (it’s okay – not awful, not great) and since episode two of that was on about half an hour ago in Oz, I might as well watch that before reviewing the show. That should be coming your way either tomorrow or Friday. Or maybe as part of next week’s WHYBW.

Despite my promises, I never watched so much as a frame of What/If… since it turns out that’s not out until this Friday. Whoops. Sorry about that. I’ll try to give that a go when it’s actually available. There’s a plan, hey?

And given Hulu launched the entire series of Catch-22 in one go on Friday, I might as well declare it’ll be next week’s Boxset Tuesday (Monday being yet another UK bank holiday). There’s a project for the bank holiday weekend, if Lovely Wife isn’t too busy with all her studies.

Somewhere mixed up in all of that will be Blood and Treasure. National Geographic’s The Hot Zone is also being served up on Monday, which I’ll definitely be watching at some point – for verily, it’s about killer viruses and I’ve read the book it’s based on and I’ve just spent the past two days editing an article about dengue fever, so clearly it’s got everything I could possibly need in a TV series.

As usual, I’ll be talking about the latest episodes of Doom Patrol, Harrow, Mr Black and Warrior. I also caught another episode of The Society. And, of course, it was the final ever episode of a certain long-running fantasy show this week, so I should probably talk about that, too. What do you think?

See you in a mo.
