HD Heads-Up: January 22 – 28

➢➢ Three will pair double-episodes of The Block Australia from January 23 with Inside the Real Narcos (9.45 Sunday-Tuesday), a docuseries that follows the drug trade in Mexico, Colombia and Peru. Said Decider of this 2018 Channel 4 series: “Fictionalised stories involving Mexican cartels (like Breaking Bad) or Colombian kingpins (like Narcos) tend to be riveting watches, because they give us glimpses into a society that’s more powerful than some governments. But you know what’s more fascinating? A look at the real thing. Former Special Forces soldier Jason Fox takes us inside the Latin American drug trade in a docuseries that will keep you riveted” …

➢➢ British crime drama McDonald & Dodds will return for a second season on January 23 (TVNZ 1, 8.45 Sundays), nearly a year after its UK debut. “McDonald & Dodds once again succeeded in its by no means ignoble aim of making two hours of television pass in an undemandingly enjoyable way,” said The Spectator. “Just don’t expect Line of Duty.” But The Times said that after a strong start, it descends into “giddy farce with a plot flimsier than a moth’s pantyhose” ….

  1. I hope there will be a new app for Three Now soon I know last year Discovery said they hope to have it by October but I’m assuming that got delayed because of Warner Bros. Discovery also I wonder if NewsHub will become a part of CNN. It’s going to be really interesting over the next few months to a year ?
