New US TV Shows 2019

While I liked Space Force (Particularly John Malkovich’s role) but some of the (semi) realism was spoilt by the non realistic parts, especially
that was just ridiculous.

Also

I'll chuck in another for Solar Opposites, that was fantastic.

For a movie nerd like myself, I've also really enjoyed Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian on Disney+ along with Prop Culture.

But back to the fiction, I love the Snowpiercer film but I gave up on the series 30 minutes into the first episode. It started like the film for ten minutes and then went somewhere completely different as they have to expand the concept into an entire series. Not for me, thank you.

Episode 4 of Snowpiercer was actually surprising. Looking forward to see where they go next.

I haven't seen ep 4 yet but ep 3 was a real improvement on the opening two so I'm going to stick with it.

The Woods starts today on Netflix (well its all on today)

Its not US, it is Polish i think (but dubbed). Harlan Coben so enjoyable if you watched THE STRANGER or SAFE

Not US, but I can heartily recommend the lockdown comedy Staged on BBC1 & iPlayer, featuring Michael Sheen & David Tennant (as themselves) trying to rehearse a play over video chat, with a couple of surprise guests.

It's very funny, their chemistry is superb & at just six 15-20 minute episodes, it doesn't outstay its welcome.

Really enjoyed the Woods.

Couple of things left unexplained which was frustrating:

We were hoping to enjoy it more than we did sadly! My wife and I are both big Harlan Coben fans and even remember reading the book. But, this felt nothing like it as I remembered? It felt like something was lost in translation maybe?

I enjoyed Alex Ryder on Prime. It's darker than I expected it to be but a pretty good match to the book. Looking forward to season 2.

1 episode into Defending Jacob.

Haven't read the book so it's all new to me but already you get the impression that there is going to be a twist at the end and/or a double bluff.

Watched most of those. Easy to leave on in background. Some brutal slips and sharp corners on that furniture. Makes you wonder if they really did go under for good. Best were the flight attendants... "reach around"

That was brilliant.

You do wonder what happens to the people that fall in; do they pause the action whilst they climb out and edit those bits out ? They then all appear at the end, all dry and in the same clothes ?

Has there been any discussion of Mrs. America in here? I can't really search for the title because of the forums absurd restrictions on search terms (so Mrs is out for being three letters long, and America is too general a word to hone in on anything).

Anyway fairly new show (shown from April to May) about the US Women's Lib movement of the 70s and their battle to get the Equal Rights Amendment ratified while the conservative women's movement fight them tooth and nail. Has one of the most impressive ensemble casts I've seen in some time (Margo Martindale, Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Elisabeth Banks, Sarah Paulson, Melanie Lynskey, Tracey Ullman, Uzo Aduba), and it's definitely up there with the best shows FX have produced in recent years, in fact it's as good as anything David Simon has put out in recent years (and David Simon is probably the best comparison to give you an idea of what this show's like).

BBC just started showing it and I watched the first ep last night, wasn't sure at first but enjoyed it. They are stripping them two eps at a time which I hate so still got second ep to watch.

In the first ep she had intelligent things to say, long may it continue and as she leans the other way than me politically its quite interesting (I'm more the newsroom/west wing) as agreed with most of what she said.
