Always Be Streaming - 8 January 2021
We’ve reached the end of the first week of 2021. And what a week it has been!
Over the past few weeks Always Be Watching has picked up a bunch of new readers (and a good number of paid subscribers too - your support means the world to me). With that in mind, I just wanted to explain two quick things about the newsletter:
Always Be Watching isn’t written for you to read everything. Even though, some people do. I bold all of the show names and actors to help people skim through to find stories of interest.
There are six emails that go out every week. Five daily news emails. And the sixth is this one - a guide to all the new scripted shows from the US, UK, and Australia. These aren’t recommendations. They’re just letting you know that these shows exist - something I find helpful with so many new and returning shows starting all the time.
Cobra Kai (s3), Taskmaster (s10), Casualty (s35), Last Man Standing (s9), The Rookie (s3), Staged (s2), Murdoch Mysteries (s14), Hudson & Rex (s3), Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (s2), Death in Paradise (s10), Scot Squad (s6), A Discovery of Witches (s2), Not Going Out (s11), Dickinson (s2)
Stars: Richard Dormer, Samuel Adewunmi, Adam Hugill Based on the characters from Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, A group of misfit cops rise up from decades of helplessness to save their corrupt city from catastrophe.
Stars: Ellie Bamber, Jenna Coleman, Tahar Rahim The twisting, real-life story of Charles Sobhraj, a murderer, thief and seductive master of disguise, who was a hidden darkness in the mid-70's on Asia's hippie trail.
Moment of Zen
