Every Friday afternoon, Always Be Watching issues a guide to the weeks brand new (and returning) shows from Australia, the US, and the UK. They may not all necessarily be available in your country yet.


My recommendation for this week: Catch up.

The two at the top of my list are The Crown (2 seasons) and Mr Robot (3 seasons). Both are returning soon and both are shows that I fell off watching. So, I’m currently burning through both from the first episode in order to be up to date when they come back in Oct/Nov.

Why is it important to spend this week and next catching up? The US fall season is about to launch. In two weeks time I’ve counted 57 new and returning shows alone. That’s just in one week.

There’s a lot of TV on the horizon. Use your next two weeks well.


The Deuce (s3), Mr Mercedes (s3), Mr Inbetween (s2), The Ranch (s4), Room 103 (s3)
