This week Micheal Palin returns back to our screens in a spooky three-part BBC series, along with NBC’s new spy thriller, State of Affairs. Trailing off are a couple of new sitcoms along with a real documentary gem in Jiro Dreams of Sushi!
It’s a little quiet right now around the world, what with the American Fall season over, and the UK holding a few thing back until their annual Xmas specials, but we’ve still managed to find a few treats worth exploring. Our personal pick this week is the Flight of the Conchords which has come up for grabs on America’s Amazon Prime.
There’s a leaning towards comedy this week, with Doc Martin’s 6th season landing on Amazon Prime UK, along with sitcoms and sketch shows from Australia and the UK, but if you’re after something a bit darker, The Fall returns with a global premiere on Ireland’s RTÉ Player.
The BBC is not only about television, what with 10 national, 8 regional and 40 local radio stations, not forgetting the World Service and pop-up broadcasts, but the line between television and radio is set to blur when BBC Radio 1 launches its own iPlayer video channel on November 10th.
This month it’s the CW’s turn to churn out a pile of American Fall television shows, with CBS dropping in a couple more sitcoms as well. Meanwhile, the BBC & Sky fill in the gaps from the UK end of the Atlantic. Whether you are after caped crusaders or the more serious side of criminal dramas, there are a wide range of genres highlighted on Four Corners this week.
As America’s fall season starts to slowly wind down, the UK picks up the slack with a pile of comedy and documentaries. Not forgetting some Australian contributions as well in our weekly round-up of what’s happening in the catch-up world.
America’s Fall Season continues with a pile of new shows and seasons, including some real gems and one of the most pointless remakes ever. But the UK isn’t taking the back seat either with ITV in particular on a role this week.
It’s a busy world out there for new television series or seasons, and not just because the American Fall season is upon us! So be prepared to be overwhelmed by choice over the next few weeks as the television world is currently going crazy!
