What have you been watching? Including Betty and Upload

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

It’s been a quiet week for TV reviewing on TMINE this week, since I’ve basically been busy as f*ck. And not just recording a podcast. Sorry about that. And I had such plans, too!

But I have been watching TV, just not reviewing it, as you’ll soon see…

Next on TMINE

Coming up after the jump, I’ll be reviewing Betty (US: HBO; UK: Sky Comedy) and Upload (Amazon). I have every intention of doing another Covideodrome, too, seeing as I’ve rewatched Inception (2010) and watched Faster (2010) and Extraction (2020) this week. It’s just a question of when…

There’s more TV on the way this week, but as usual, Covid-19 rules apply to the following new shows: I have every intention of watching all of them, but might not be able to, for one reason or another. That and the fact it’s a Bank Holiday tomorrow.

On the streaming services, as mentioned last week, Amazon now has season 3 of Baron Noir (France: Canal+). However, since then, it’s dropped the price tag, so now it’s free to Amazon Prime members, so there’s a significantly greater chance I’m going to watch it now.

Meanwhile, Netflix has The Eddy coming on Friday, but that’s a jazz musical, so there’s no chance I’m watching that, and Valeria is probably a bit too girly for me.

On regular old cable in the US, I Know This Much is True (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic) is coming on Sunday, but that’s about it as all the US broadcasters have started postponing the shows they’ve already got in the can, to make sure they’ll actually have something new to air in autumn.

Baron Noir could well have his day this week…

The regulars

After the jump, as well as those two new shows, it’s the usual regulars: For Life, Mystery Road, One Lane Bridge and What We Do In The Shadows, as well as the season finale of Westworld. That said, I’ve not had the chance to watch much TV for the past two days, so I’ve not seen the absolute latest episodes of either For Life and What We Do In The Shadows, so I’m a bit behind.

See you in a mo!

What have you been watching? Including The Secrets She Keeps and Penny Dreadful: City of Angels

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

Look at that. I reviewed some tele. It’s almost like this is a TV blog or something. This week, I’ve let you know all about One Lane Bridge (New Zealand: TVNZ1) and Defending Jacob (Apple TV+). But that’s not all I’ve watched…

Next on TMINE

Coming up after the jump, I’ll be reviewing The Secrets She Keeps (Australia: Ten; UK: BBC Four) and Penny Dreadful: City of Angels (US: Showtime; UK: Sky Atlantic). But there’s more TV on the way this week – as usual, though, Covid-19 rules apply to the following new shows: I have every intention of watching all of them, but might not be able to, for one reason or another.

In the US, HBO will be giving us skating show Betty but that’s about it. However, on the streaming services, Netflix will be offering us Summertime, Almost Happy, Hollywood, and Into The Night, while Apple TV+ gives us its first UK show, Trying. Meanwhile, Amazon has Upload for us.

I’ve also just noticed that Amazon now has season 3 of Baron Noir (France: Canal+). I’d love to watch that but you can only rent or buy it, and I’m cheap. You might not be, though.

I’m going to try at least one of those, I reckon. Maybe more. How about you?

The regulars

After the jump, it’s the usual regulars: For Life, Mystery Road, What We Do In The Shadows and Westworld. See you in a mo!

What have you been watching? Including #blackAF and Mrs America

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

It’s been another busy week for TMINE, but I have managed to eke out the time needed to review The Baker and the Beauty (US: ABC). Meanwhile, temporary new film review feature Covideodrome was inaugurated with Sliding Doors (1998).

Next on TMINE

Coming up after the jump, I’ll be reviewing Mrs America (US: Hulu; UK: BBC Two) and #blackAF (Netflix). But as usual, Covid-19 rules apply to the following new shows: I have every intention of watching all of them, but might not be able to, for one reason or another.

I’ve finally managed to track down The Secrets She Keeps (Australia: Ten; UK: BBC Four), which will be getting a review later in the week. Elsewhere down under, over in New Zealand, One Lane Bridge has just started, so I’ll be giving that a watch if possible.

On the streaming services, Season two of After Life will be arriving on Netflix on Friday, while Defending Jacob is Apple TV+’s new Friday show. I’ll probably watch at least a bit of them. Monday’s Never Have I Ever (Netflix) sounds a bit YA for me, but I might give it a try, too.

Lastly, in the US, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels (US: Showtime) is arriving on Sunday, but despite the presence of Natalie Dormer in the cast, I’m not sure I can be bothered with this, given I wasn’t the greatest fan of Penny Dreadful.

But that looks like about it.

Sofia Helin and Aaron Pedersen in Mystery Road

The regulars

I haven’t watched any more Tales From The Loop, but other than that, it’s the usual regulars after the jump: For Life, Transplant, and Westworld, as well as the season/series finales of Devs and War of the Worlds.

But two previous regulars have returned this week, so I’ll also be covering What We Do In The Shadows (US: FX; UK: BBC Two) and Mystery Road (Australia: ABC; UK: BBC Four), too.

What have you been watching? Including Run, Brews Brothers and Home Before Dark

Previously on TMINE

With the double bank holiday weekend of Easter just passed, it’s not 100% surprising that TMINE didn’t manage to review anything at all since the previous WHYBW. But I did at least watch a whole bunch of tele, which I’ll talk about in a mo, and hopefully, I’ll be doing better this week…

Brews Brothers

Next on TMINE

I’m still no further along than episode 8 of the latest season of Babylon Berlin (Germany: Sky; UK: Sky Atlantic) and I never managed to find a way to view The Secrets She Keeps (Australia: Ten; UK: BBC Four). But they appear to be the only logjams in the TMINE viewing queue, since I’ve made great progress elsewhere. Yep, my quarantine-induced lack of focus, time and inclination to watch things appears to be dying down as I adjust to the new normal.

After the jump, I’ll be talking about a whole bunch of new shows: Home Before Dark (Apple TV+), Brews Brothers (Netflix) and Run (US: HBO; UK: Sky Comedy). Tomorrow, I plan to review an actual movie in a temporary replacement for Orange Thursday called Covideodrome: Sliding Doors (1998). Yes, I’ve been sitting on that name for a while.

Meanwhile, coming up over the next week are new shows Mrs America (US: Hulu; UK: BBC Two) and #blackAF (Netflix), with season two of Mystery Road (Australia: ABC; UK: BBC Four) arriving on Sunday. I will try to watch and even review as much of them as possible, as well as anything else I’ve overlooked – including The Baker and the Beauty (US: ABC).

Bloom

The regulars

I haven’t had time to watch For Life yet, but other than that, it’s the usual regulars after the jump: Devs, Transplant, War of the Worlds and Westworld. Joining them, however, is newbie Tales From The Loop and we have the return of Bloom as well. See you in a mo.
