Stan: What's New For 15 February - 21 February 2022

As February runs out (really, we're two months into 2022 already?), time again to take a look at what's been happening on Stan this past week.


Here's a sleeper sci-fi series that you may have missed, Counterpart, which ran from 2017 to 2019 and was cancelled before its time, is just the kind of sci-fi premise that I like (secret government agency, parallel universes ...), and yet another underrated performance by J.K. Simmons. You can still enjoy two solid seasons here, just be aware that it will prematurely end after season 2.

There is also a new Finnish series, Arctic Circle.

Movies, Documentaries:

In what is Nicolas Cage's best movie in ages (not saying much, to be honest), Pig features a very understated performance by Cage (the man seems to only have two acting modes, understated and over-the-top - I much prefer the former).

Speaking of understated, the post-apocalyptic drama How I Live Now takes in a very small slice of a much larger war following the nuking of London by terrorists. No big action pieces, no loud and in your face CGI, just a quiet human story, the kind that I love. And did I mention it features the then relatively unknown, but right now's superstars Saoirse Ronan, Tom Holland and George MacKay? Talk about great casting!

What with the Queen currently in the news over her COVID scare, the movie "Spencer", and a new season of "The Crown" coming later this year, here are two documentaries that you may find interesting, Elizabeth II: The Making Of A Queen and The Queen’s Diamond Decades.
