What have you been watching? Including A Ghost Story for Christmas, Plan Coeur and Counterpart

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

And we’re back in the room. Yes, TMINE’s back for 2019 and WHYBW is back on Wednesdays again. All is right in the world, non?

Runaways
Marvel’s Runaways

This week’s reviews

Obviously, TMINE’s been back for a few days now and I’ve done not one but two full boxsets this week:

  • Season 1 of Bloom (Australia: Stan)
  • Season 2 of Marvel’s Runaways (US: Hulu; UK: Syfy)

How impressive is that? Feel free to peruse their wisdom at your leisure.

New shows

Both Canada and the US have started firing up their mid-season shows and offering previews of some forthcoming ones as well. As a result, between now and next WHYBW, I should be serving up reviews of:

  • Coroner (Canada: CBC; UK: Universal) – Serinda Swan and Roger Cross in a crime procedural adaptation of MR Hall’s novels
  • Cavendish (Canada: CBC) – comedy about two brothers who return to look after their ailing father, The Actor Kevin Eldon
  • Project Blue Book (US: History) – Aidan Gillen and Michael Malarkey investigate UFO sightings in the 50s. Not related to this show at all.
  • Deadly Class (US: Syfy) – adaptation of the graphic novel that sees Benedict Wong teach kids how to kill in the 80s
  • Black Monday (US: Showtime; UK: Sky Atlantic – probably) – Don Cheadle in a scathing satire of Wall Street in the 80s

And anything else that pops up, such as ABC (US)’s Schooled, which starts tonight (although that’s a spin-off from The Goldbergs so maybe not). Sex Education is on Netflix from Friday, so I might boxset it.

That’s a pretty full schedule, though, and as Deadly Class and Black Monday don’t air in the US for a couple of weeks, I might postpone them until nearer the time.

Plan Coeur
Plan Coeur

The regulars

After the jump, it’ll be just the usual regulars, as well as what I watched over Christmas: three full episodes of Counterpart, the remaining four episodes of Plan Cœur (The Hookup Plan), the penultimate episode of Happy Together and the season finale of Titans, as well as 2018’s A Ghost Story For Christmas. See you in a mo…

What TV’s on at the BFI in February? Including Logopolis, Traitors, Bill Hicks and Forgotten Black TV

Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London

After January’s sluggish start, the BFI is kicking things up a notch for February. The centrepiece is a season of forgotten black TV plays – expect lots of Don Warrington as well as Sammy Davis Jr – but there’s also a preview of the Channel 4/Netflix spy drama Traitors that’s followed by a Q&A with star Keeley Hawes, a Bill Hicks event and an airing of Doctor Who story Logopolis to coincide with its Blu-Ray release. All that after the jump…
