Always Be Watching is curated by Dan Barrett
My TV watching plans this weekend involves going back to watch Legion. I watched the first episode of this when it debuted a few years back, but got distracted and never finished it. Visually, it was inventive and an absolute delight. Legion’s third and final season debuted this week. Now is the time to catch up and see this show through to its end.
Regular ABW reader Michael Meloni asked me the other day about the final season return of Mr Robot - it’s expected back late this year (I’m guessing early Dec). Now is absolutely the time to go back and rewatch this incredible show. Or start it if you let it get past you.
But mostly I’m just looking forward to the next episode of Big Little Lies - I don’t know what did it, but the most recent episode flipped a switch for me and I’m not into it DEEP.
I haven’t seen it yet, but the very funny Claudia O’Doherty stars in a series that has launched on YouTube and Australia’s ABC iView that has sparked a lot of chatter. Make sure you press play on Sarah’s Channel over the weekend.
