The Final Summer season (Netflix)

Overview of recent Might 2019 TV exhibits

Might sees a seize bag of unconventional genres, like HBO’s Chernobyl, a dramatisation of the Chernobyl accident, and supernatural romantic drama One and Solely Love on Viu. On the native entrance, we have now Kin spin-off Matthew’s Story debuting on Toggle in Might — which might not be essentially the most imaginative title, however it will get the job performed. It is a good month for us to take a breather and atone for every breathtaking episode of Recreation of Thrones (which continues this month), with an excellent deal with on the finish of Might — Supergirl Season 4.

Matthew’s Story (Toggle)

Matthew’s Story (2 Might)

Matthew’s Story is a spin-off from Kin, which follows the eponymous Matthew’s (Charlie Goh) journey after a number of tragedies in his life. Although the upright character finds new family and friends, he additionally discovers that it comes with a value. Will he keep true to his values, or will he must sacrifice one for the opposite? It stars Ferlyn G (Fiona), Bernard Tan (Wilson), and Bryan Wong (Cheong).

If episodes of Channel 5’s Kin aren’t popping out quick sufficient for you, then you definately would possibly wish to discover this spin-off that fleshes out the backstory of one among their standard characters. Helmed by two powerhouse veterans (Bernard Tan and Bryan Wong), the collection guarantees “intimate scenes” between Matthew and his love curiosity, Fiona (Ferlyn G of When Ghost Meets Zombie). That’s most likely the largest draw of this on-line collection.

The Final Summer season (film) (Three Might)

A gaggle of unbelievably attractive youngsters — Griffin (KJ Apa from Riverdale), Maia Mitchell (Phoebe), Jacob Latimore ( Alec), Halston Sage (Erin), Ricky (Tyler Posey), and Audrey (Sosie Bacon from 13 Causes Why) discover themselves having to cope with their aspirations, objective, and love of their remaining summer season earlier than they go off to school. As a substitute of rainbows and sunshine, they could must cope with a slightly stormy summer season earlier than they transfer on to their subsequent section of life. The Final Summer season might very properly be their final summer season of innocence.

You virtually really feel like including “I Know What You Did” earlier than the title, however this isn’t a horror/slasher flick. The Final Summer season is a teen drama that, properly, options every little thing you wish to see in a teen drama. The trailer itself already exhibits Instagram-worthy filters utilized on each shot, plus there are seashore scenes, break-ups, romantic dates, stadium occasions, and even a bromance. It appears and feels prefer it’s going to be a responsible pleasure, and it’s buoyed by handsome stars, too.


Chernobyl (7 Might, Tuesdays 9am)
HBO (StarHub TV Ch 601)

Chernobyl is a dramatisation of the occasions that led to 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Energy Plant explosion and the implications of the accident. Lives are upended and households are torn aside within the aftermath. How will humanity reply when confronted with one of many worst disasters that has ever taken place on the planet? It stars Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard, and Emily Watson.

Maybe one of many scenes that we’re most wanting ahead to in Chernobyl is the precise accident itself, since that’s the raison d’etre for the collection. Chernobyl might appear to be a simple dramatisation, however there appears like there will likely be some measure of infotainment as properly concerning radiation illness and the engineering behind energy vegetation. Most significantly, it sounds prefer it’s a narrative of hope and the human spirit, and the way humanity overcomes adversity.


One and Solely Love (16 Might)

An exquisite ballerina with a coronary heart of stone, Yeon-Search engine optimisation (Shin Hye-Solar), discovers that real love might exist in spite of everything when she meets Kim Dan (Kim Myung-Soo). Nonetheless, Dan seems to be a troublemaking love angel who should discover real love for the ballerina earlier than he’s allowed to return to Heaven. Nonetheless, the pair quickly discover themselves in forbidden love.

The ballerina facet of One and Solely Love is what provides this collection a barely extra vibrant edge over different exhibits with an identical trope (a human and a supernatural being falling in love). We’re fairly positive this kind of love is banned in each the heavenly and earthly realms, which is what makes their relationship barely extra sophisticated. Hopefully, One and Solely Love will concentrate on the supernatural aspect as properly, and provides us some pearls of knowledge concerning divinely manufactured love.


Supergirl (Season 4) (28 Might, Tuesdays 9pm)
Warner TV (StarHub TV CH. 515, and Singtel TV CH. 306)

The Final Daughter of Krypton, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) faces a brand new risk this season when an anti-alien motion rises as much as threaten every little thing she loves. Even her superpowers might not be sufficient to quell the rampant hatred for aliens that’s spreading the world over, and she is going to want each potential ally to assist her on this unattainable quest. However she’s Supergirl — and he or she’s greater than as much as the duty for it.

Supergirl has all the time been identified for being progressive, particularly with its predominantly feminine solid, and Season Four will likely be no totally different. It options the primary transgender superhero on display screen, Dreamer/Nia Nal (Nicole Maines), combating alongside Supergirl. Whereas the alien-immigrant metaphor has all the time been portrayed as a simmering undercurrent of resentment within the collection, it appears to be paying off in Season Four too. Right here’s to hoping for extra action-packed tremendous battles within the fourth season of Supergirl!
