This week on Binge List, WHO magazine’s Matthew Denby, Clare Rigden and Gavin Scott guide you through all the must-see shows on TV (and warn you about the occasional dud). From big-budget miniseries to hidden gems, these are the series you should be checking out.
In episode two, we preview Foxtel’s lavish reimagining of Picnic at Hanging Rock. How does it compare to the original? Do the young cast hold their own against the established adult actors? Are there panpipes? We answer those questions and a whole lot more.
And with Roseanne back on our screens, the Binge List team dissect the first two episodes and whether it deserves all the hype. We discuss how effectively the show dealt with the original series’ troublesome ending, whether having both actresses that played Becky onscreen together works and if we’ll be seeing Johnny Galecki return as David.
With Wentworth due to return in June for a sixth season, Clare shares her recent visit to the set of the prison drama and reveals just how much attention to detail is paid. She wanted to know if The Freak (Pamela Rabe) is dead or coming back after the season five cliff-hanger – but did Clare uncover the truth?
Plus, in To Binge Or Not To Binge, we give our verdict on Stan’s Imposters and Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix. And this week’s Hidden Gem is Bad Banks on SBS On Demand.
