I know it’s only been six weeks but it feels like forever since unpopcult’s favourite slice of tv madness, Blindspot, stopped for mid-season break in a flurry of cliffhangers and craziness. No more waiting, though; Jane/Taylor, Kurt/Mr Angry and the rest of the team are back tonight at 9pm on Sky Living and unpopcult is delighted. We’ll be reviewing every week as usual, and probably getting very excited in the process.
At the same time tonight, meanwhile (albeit so far at the other end of the tv spectrum it’s almost falling off the end), “Inside Obama’s White House“, a four-part documentary series following the Obama administration in office kicks off on BBC2. Not only does it look fascinating in its own right, but the timing seems particularly apt given the current, mostly terrifying coverage of the U.S. election campaign coming at us from all directions: it’s nice to be reminded that there are plenty of perfectly sane people in politics as well. I don’t expect to review it, but I’ll be watching.
