It’s “What have you been watching?”, your chance to recommend to fellow TMINE readers anything you’ve been watching this week
WHYBW isn’t quite the proverbial frog in a pan of water, but the observant will have noticed that it’s been getting later each week. That’s not really a grand design, simply my current workload in action. I could pretend it’s so that I could watch all this week’s episodes of Nightflyers; I could also point out that it’s because there’s actually nothing much on Wednesday or Thursday nights in the US, whereas there’s oodles on Mondays and Tuesdays, so it currently makes more sense to have WHYBW on a Thursday or a Friday.
But fundamentally it’s an accident.
Anywhere, it’s Friday and here’s WHYBW! I’ve already watched a lot of the new shows that have come out since the last WHYBW, including Netflix’s 1983 and the first episode of the aforementioned Nightflyers, but it being Friday, a new batch has just come out, any or all of which could be a Boxset Monday or at least feature in a review next week: the third season of Fortitude, as well as Netflix’s Dogs of Berlin and The Hook-Up Plan.
But that means I’ll only be talking about the regulars after the jump: Black Lightning, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Happy Together and Titans. The observant will notice Doctor Who isn’t on that list. That’s because I haven’t watched it. Yes, I know it’s on Sundays, so I’ve had enough time, but honestly I’ve felt absolutely no pressing desire to watch it, particularly since all the reviews suggest it’s a particularly terrible episode. Maybe I’ll have watched it by next WHYBW, but I get the feeling I might actually be over Doctor Who – at least for now. It only took about 40 years, but there you go.
