So, what’s available this month to watch or listen to? Let’s take a look…
NOW TV Entertainment Pass
What is it about the repeated ‘shuffle, run away, shuffle’ zombie survival format that stays so enduring? Whatever it is, those mischeivous reanimated types always make for some engrossing (and gross) TV. And, thankfully, fans of the undead genre have plenty to get stuck into over the next month.
That’s right: season 9 of The Walking Dead is shuffling onto NOW TV Entertainment from October 8, with new episodes landing weekly thereafter! Haven’t yet got on board the zombie train (not an actual train, let’s be clear)? No problem: you can tune into series 1 – 8 right is now available on NOW TV Entertainment – perfect for a commute catch-up.
Amazon Prime Video
One of the first ever Amazon Originals on the platform, The Man in the High Castle is based on the award-winning novel by Philip K. Dick, and is executively produced by Ridley Scott (Gladiator). The story’s a reality-twisting exploration of how the world might look today if the Allied Powers had lost WWII, and Japan and Germany ruled the United States.
It’s a dream come true for fans of high-concept, high-stakes sci-fi drama, and now there’s a new season just a few days away. Check out the trailer from the upcoming season 3, starting 5 Oct, below:
Next up is The Romanoffs – a brand new Amazon Original Series, kicking off on 12 October. Written, directed and executive produced by nine-time Emmy award winner Matthew Weiner (Mad Men), this is an eight-piece anthology that dives into the disparate lives of people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family. Set in seven countries around the globe,The Romanoffs was shot on location in three continents collaborating with local productions and creative talent across Europe, the Americas, and the Far East.
Check out the trailer below for a teaser (and for some very familiar Mad Men faces):
No matter how vast and left-field your musical tastes, Spotify has pretty much everything you could ever want covered. And, better still, every month its catalogue only grows with a bevvy of new releases. This October there are a plenty of awesome new albums to get your ears twitching. Here are just a couple:
First up, American duo Twenty One Pilots, who are back with their first studio album in three years, Trench. It’s out 5 October and it’s dripping in a dark, gritty, sound, as best demoed in new single Nico And The Niners. Check it out here:
Next up? Indie funsters Tokyo Police Club, back with a new, sort-of-self-titled album, TPC – also out on 5 October. Our highlight is this catchy little tune called Hercules:
We’re only scratching the surface here, however; October also sees new LPs drop from the likes of Coheed & Cambria, Cat Power and Tom Odell. Be sure to dip into your personalised New Music Radar playlist, which gets filled to the brim with fresh new singles every Friday.
