Always Be Streaming - 25 June 2021
It's a weekend of old favorites on TV. And dirty, dirty sex in a new Netflix drama.
There is a substantial weekend of new and returning TV ahead. The provocatively titled Sex/Life will draw eyeballs (even if they won't necessarily be posting online about it) - it's wild to think that a sexy drama might get people's attention on a Friday night...
Beyond that, though, the attention is best placed on returning shows - there's a bunch of old and new favourites making their way back to screens this week. I can only tell y'all to watch The Good Fight so many times, so I'll refrain. But know that the series return has an homage to the funniest scene in the history of television. (A note to Aussie ABW readers - The Good Fight debuts locally on Thursday by way of SBS).
The return of Evil this week was suitably creepy (Again, for Aussie ABW readers - I have no idea where this is playing locally - nothing is announced yet, but s1 is on Stan). Check out this trailer - it's wonderfully off-kilter:
And Bosch is back for more great dad detective TV. The kids though - they'll be watching the Rick & Morty series return.
