New to TVNZ+: November 18-24

The guards and inmates of the C Wing at Long Marsh Prison return for a second season of Screw (November 20) .

It picks up after the tragic events of S1, with changes at the very top and fresh faces on the wing.

Senior Prison officer Leigh’s (Nina Sosanya) new bond with Rose (Derry Girls’ Jamie-Lee O’Donnell) is tested to the limit as rumours of an undercover policeman on the wing threaten to blow open a criminal plot at Long Marsh.

The Telegraph said it “remains a well-served blend of broiling menace and leavening wit” while the Lancashire Evening Post said it “avoids ‘difficult second album syndrome’ by ratcheting up the tension and building up the laughs”.

But the i reckons it “has all the excitement of an episode of Teletubbies … an unsatisfying blend of thriller and soap with occasional laughs. This clunker in the clinker is trying to be too many things at once.”

Dictatorland (November 21) is a 2017 “BBC political travel” docuseries about some of the world’s longest-running dictatorships while Catching a Serial Killer: Sam Little (November 22) examines what drove America’s most prolific serial killer to murder more than 90 women in 17 states.

Also ‘new’ are Secret Diary of a Call Girl S1-4 (November 18), Utopia S1-2 (November 23), and the movies Ali and Southpaw (November 20), and August: Osage County and Babs (November 22).
