At the moment nothing really matters because I just watched the RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars 3 finale and it was amazing (at least I think it was, Drag Race twitter seems to disagree which is fine. I’m new to the show and I have a lot to learn). This is a preview space, so no spoilers. I need there to be a reunion show because this group of queens was fantastic, and it can’t be over yet. Season 10 starts next Friday and I’m not ready for this season to be over yet – it’s the first season I’ve watched live, which definitely impacts how I feel about it. Speaking of RuPaul’s Drag Race, there are also new episodes of The Trixie and Katya Show up on SBS OnDemand, which I found out about as I was putting the guide together.

I thought it was going to be a quiet week but there’s still a lot on – and there are quite a few finales on Foxtel, which is going to make next week’s “Weekly Episodes” section a little easier. It’s still quieter than last week when I was rushing to finish season 2 of Jessica Jones and excited about Terrace House: Opening New Doors (Tsubasa!) and Annihilation. I’m thrilled that Annihilation is getting a positive reception outside of the U.S. and that we’re all annoyed about not being able to see it at the cinema. Until next week! I have a lot of The Good Fight to catch up on.

Sorry, The Good Fight. You’ll have to wait until next week. There’s a lot on at the moment and I’m not getting press releases from Amazon, so those shows get put in when I find out about them. Anyway, there are lots of great things. I don’t watch Will & Grace, but a check-in seemed like a good idea, so I went with it. Rise sounds like Friday Night Lights meets Glee, and it’s by Jason Katims, so I’m hopeful. Stan is importing good content, and I’m glad that they do.

Over on Netflix there’s Annihilation, which Paramount sold to Netflix for distribution outside The United States, Canada and China. This is a film I’ve been looking forward to since I first heard about it, and I was really disappointed to hear the Netflix news. Having seen it, I’m still a bit disappointed. This film is stunning visually, and it definitely wasn’t supposed to be viewed on my laptop screen. I was also looking forward to seeing Gina Rodriguez on the big screen, she’s one of my favourite actresses. Tessa Thompson was great in Thor: Ragnarok, and her character in the film is probably my favourite.

Guess what else is back? If you guessed Terrace House, you are correct! There’s a new series of Terrace House subtitled Opening New Doors, and I am quite excited for the new show and the return of my favourite celebrity panellists. There’s also a new baking show on Netflix that has just dropped called Nailed It, in which home bakers (who have had baking disasters) battle against celebrity bakers. Sounds fun. I’m thinking of recapping it, but if I do, I’d probably do it through Patreon because they take time. Please let me know if you’re interested.

Every once in a while you get to write about two shows you love at once, and this week that was Marvel’s Jessica Jones and The Games. There’s so much TV coming back. I’m still behind on Atlanta and The Good Fight, which seems strange given that Community and The Good Wife were once my favourite comedy and drama on television respectively. Thanks to SBS we’re getting them relatively quickly, but there’s too much TV!

In other news, I’ve seen the first two episodes of Jessica Jones and I love it. I’d especially like Trish to become Hellcat because Patsy Walker, a.k.a. Hellcat! is a delightful comic. I realise that if that does happen it’ll be nothing like the comic, but it’d be great. Let’s do that one. I’m not sure at this stage, but I think this season is set pre-Defenders – then again I’ve only seen two episodes. Until next week!

The Olympics are nearly over, which means it’s time for all the shows to come back! I haven’t seen any screeners for this week – I got back from Perth on Sunday evening, and I still haven’t figured out how to get back to East Coast hours. I had a great time at Perth Fringeworld, and I might write something about it in the coming week. ANYWAY: there are new or returning shows on all of the major streaming services, and I can’t very well highlight UnREAL without also highlighting Arie’s season of The Bachelor. I’m interested to see what happens in the new season of iZombie, which distinguished itself as an unconventional zombie show but pointed towards the more conventional route by the end of season 3.

I got dates for March the other day, and I was going to do the spreadsheet today but I watched figure skating instead. Anyway, there’s a lot to look forward to.

Some of the cast of The Office.

Confession: I’ve seen one episode of The Office, and I don’t remember a thing. It was during a family Christmas celebration and the younger people (I was a teenager) decided to see what was on TV. It was on Foxtel, and we watched it because it was on, but I didn’t really think much of it. I know it’s a show people love, but it seemed mean and that’s not really my thing. So now I guess I can see what all the fuss was about next week when it comes to Stan.

In other news, the new season of Grace and Frankie (which I also haven’t watched, thanks Peak TV) drops today, and we’re getting Black Lightning weekly, but also a week after it airs on The CW. I don’t know the reasoning behind this – Netflix fast-tracks other CW shows within 24 hours – but I’m glad I get to see it. I’m also a big Hart of Dixie fan, so I’m excited to see Cress Williams in a new role. I would also like the rest of the Hart of Dixie cast to guest on the show. As I wrote in the guide, I watched the first two seasons of The Detour in three days (it’s been very hot, so going outside isn’t really an option), and I’m looking forward to season three. Given that it took me 3 days to watch 20 episodes, I’m not quite sure how I’ll go watching it weekly. Are there fun theories about this show? I hope so. Now if you’ll excuse me I’d like to go back to watching One Day at a Time screeners.

After several weeks of dreading the “weekly episodes” section of the guide, I’ve finally culled some of Foxtel’s outings – sorry Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian and other shows that I can barely remember. In other news Jane the Virgin finally returns to Foxtel on Sunday but I left that off (in case you can’t tell by this weird disjointed copy, I’m not feeling great at the moment). There’s nothing I’m really excited about that’s dropping in the next week, which is good because I have several screeners to watch and shows to catch up on before their new seasons air. The Detour dropped on Stan yesterday and I watched the first season in two sittings. I have nearly two weeks before season 3 drops, so I think I’ll take the second season at a slightly slower pace. Until next time!

Oh, The Great Australian Bake Off premieres next week and I will be writing recaps for that again, which will be appearing both here and on DeciderTV.

Woooo Dirk Gently is back! The Good Place is back! The Detour drops on Thursday! This was the quickest streaming guide to write in a while, mainly because it’s a pretty quiet week. Except there are some good things returning and a David Bowie documentary. Usually the longest part of the streaming guide is figuring out the weekly episodes (Stan is the only service that provides a chronological breakdown of what’s on each day). Shows take varying lengths of breaks over December and January, so Netflix and Stan are at least pretty quiet on the weekly episodes front.

I just remembered I forgot about Netflix’s The End of the F**king World because it wasn’t on the press release. Anyway, there’s a lot to watch over the weekend, especially since it’s going to be 42 degrees (107.6 F) tomorrow and I’ll be staying inside with the air conditioning.
