Welcome back to On My TV This Week! This week saw two major shows return to our screen. The Walking Dead and Stranger Things. On top of this, I managed to watch the entire series of Mindhunter, but there will be more on that below. Let’s do this!
TL;DR – Devolver is a refreshingly inventive album from the frontman that brought us Reuben. Bringing the two halves of ‘Muscle Memory’ back together, Jamie Lenman pushes his songwriting skills further than we’ve ever seen before in this modern masterpiece. (★★★★★)
Those that have read my post on albums that impacted me as a teenager will know that I have great respect for Jamie Lenman as a songwriter from his days in Reuben so I was excited to hear that he was releasing more new music this year.
Negan “I hope you’ve got your shittin’ pants on… Cause you, are about to shit your pants!”
So it’s that time of year again. The Walking Dead is back on our screens and this series is subtitled as “All Out War”. The end of Season 7 saw Rick and his merry men being visited by Negan and The Saviours. Just as it looked like Rick and Co. were cornered, the Hilltop and the Kingdom fighters showed up forcing Negan and The Saviours to retreat. We rejoin the gang in what would appear to be a short time after as Season 8 kicks off.
**Warning – Spoilers ahead**
Welcome back to On My TV This Week! I’m going to start with a film this week and then move on to the series’ that I’ve been tracking. Thanks again for taking the time to read and I hope you enjoy!
OK, let’s try something new again! I think I’m going to try and get weekly recaps of the main TV shows that I’ve watched in the previous week, a short synopsis, and what I thought of each show. As always, please prepare yourself for spoilers!
When it comes to Game of Thrones, there’s one thing for sure. Everyone has their own idea of how things are going to pan out and what the endgame will bring! I’m not one to just sit there and watch the show. I get too involved and find myself looking up theories constantly! Some of which have panned out already and some of which have already been discredited by the actors and even George R. R. Martin himself!
Now, before you read any further, I must warn you that this post is dark and full of spoilers. These will likely be from all 7 TV series so far coupled with possible spoilers for Season 8 (if any of these theories are correct). I’ll even try and correlate information from the books that didn’t make it into the show.
If you asked me to name a film that could be turned in to a TV series, Snatch most certainly wouldn’t have been my first choice. In fact, I doubt it even would have crossed my mind! Never-the-less, American TV Streaming company, Crackle, have decided that that’s just what they’d do!
With Snatch being one of my favourite British films, I had to give this a shot and see if it was worth the hype. Snatch the TV Series is loosely based on its movie counterpart from 2000 by Guy Ritchie, in that it’s centred around a heist gone wrong and a thrown boxing match. After that, though, it’s easy to see that this is its own entity.
It looks like HBO has done something right this week, as the finale has remained under wraps…. Well, except for the plot outline that made its way on to Reddit! I’ve avoided reading this though so I’m thoroughly looking forward to what we have in store for the Season 7 finale!
Don’t forget you can check out my reactions to previous episodes here. Here we go for the final time this year. Let’s roll this intro!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll have heard that HBO Spain leaked this episode an entire 5 days before it was due to be aired. Being someone who wants to avoid spoilers, I had to watch it as soon as I could! I’ve held off posting this blog until now to save any more spoilers being online. Don’t forget you can check out my reactions to previous episodes here. The intro is starting… Let’s roll!
Here we go, episode five out of seven. This is passing far too quickly! I’m not sure what to expect this week, although going by the title, I’m assuming we’ll be back at the wall at some point! Don’t forget you can check out my reactions to previous episodes here. The intro is rolling… Let’s go!
