Cancel any and all plans you have this weekend. There is so much TV worth your attention to check out this weekend.
Modern Love is Amazon Prime Video’s anthology series of stories about love (mostly romantic). It has an amazing cast that includes actors like Tina Fey, John Slattery, Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel, and Fleabag’s hot priest. I discuss it in this week’s ABW Podcast, but know that it is a low-stakes, pleasant drama that is probably best enjoyed on a Sunday morning with a cup of tea in hand.
Aussie shows Frayed and Total Control have gotten very enthusiastic raves from local viewers. The Bourne Identity spin-off Treadstone has gotten a far more lukewarm response, but is worth checking out on account of being a spin-off of The Bourne Identity. Oh… and then there’s a Netflix show starring the very charming Paul Rudd appearing against himself in a clone dramedy - Living With Yourself.
And that’s before we even get to the BBC One period-era revamp of War of The Worlds.
