Talking Pictures

Talking Pictures March 2021: The Champions

An occasional look at what classic TV shows Talking Pictures (Sky 328 | Freeview 81 | Freesat 306 | Virgin 445) is going to be airing soon

Obviously, TMINE isn’t quite at its usual running speed at the moment, so I’m not going to be doing full Talking Pictures listings rundowns for quite some time yet. But this did jump out at me when I saw the latest schedule highlights.

The Champions is coming to Talking Pictures! Yay!

I don’t need to discuss it too much here, since I wrote about it many years ago for the now-defunct TV Scoop but posted my write-up here. All I’ll say is: watch it – it’s on every Sunday from 7 March at 9pm! And here’s a promo video, for those who don’t want to read that; or maybe I’ll just say it’s the 1960s version of Iron Fist, assuming anyone other than me regarded that as a recommendation.


Alert! New Adam Curtis series incoming!

Can’t Get You Out Of My Head: An Emotional History Of The Modern World is going to be on the iPlayer from 11 February.

This new six-film series of films tells the story of how we got to the strange days we are now experiencing. And why both those in power – and we – find it so difficult to move on.

Full synopsis after the jump, but here’s a YouTube trailer.

Previously on TMINE

No reviews. Sorry. Usual excuses – and it’s going to be worse next week, since I’m on holiday because it’s Half Term, which means WHYBW will be taking a break next week, too.

But I have been watching TV, I promise. And I will be watching more…


Next on TMINE

There’s actually not too much coming up in terms of new shows for me to review. Netflix has limited series The Queen’s Gambit, which I might try. But HBO’s The Undoing, which airs on Sunday in the US, is going to be on Sky Atlantic on Monday, so there’s nothing for me to do there, I suspect.

Otherwise, the second season of The Mandalorian starts on October 30, but that’s about it. Probably a good time for us all to have holidays, then.…


What TMINE has been watching

The regulars list is starting to dwindle again. After the jump, reviews of the latest episodes I’ve watched of neXt, The Right Stuff, Tehran and Warrior, the season finale of Criminal (UK), as well as the first episodes of new Canadian show Trickster and the latest Marvel comics adaptation Helstrom.

However, at least one of those is for the chop. Can you guess which one?
