In today’s TV News Roundup, Amazon’s “The Collection” gets a premiere date, Masterpiece announces a partnership on new series “Press,” “Homeland” premiere ratings, and more.

Ratings

Showtime made the “Homeland” Season 6 premiere available to its subscribers more than two weeks before its linear debut — a move that appears to have paid off. While the TV audience on Sunday, the night of the official premiere, was 1.35 million, the streaming and on-demand audience in the 17 days leading up nearly matched that, with 1.25 million. That was enough to tie Season 6 with Season 3 for the series’ most-watched premiere, though none of the other seasons had their premieres made available beforehand.

Dates

Amazon’s seven-episode period drama “The Collection,” from creator and writer Oliver Goldstick, will launch on Prime Video in the U.S. on Feb. 10. The family saga profiles the Sabine family and fashion house’s attempt to restore Paris to its former glory as the haute couture capital

The Reeds and Seeing Your Death Looking Back at You: A Movie Review

*here be spoilers.

Director: Nick Cohen.

Writers: Mark Anthony Galluzzo and Chris Baker.

This review is going back a little to After Dark Horrorfest's 2010 lineup which included The Reeds. This is a film that sees several friends boating around the United Kingdom in tragic fashion. This weekender involves exploding propane tanks, vicious burns and gory impalements. Most would classify this title a horror film, but the film goes a little deeper than that into history and into tragedy.

Laura (Anna Brewster), Joe (Daniel Caltagirone), Mel (Emma Catherwood), Nick (O.T. Fagbenle) and Chris (Will Mellor) head out on a boat rented to them by Mr. Croker (George Bell). Quickly, they become lost in head height reeds, until there is a light in the distance. That light is firelight and burning is Mr. Croker's dog. This is some foreshadowing for events to come as several cast members will meet a similar fiery fate.

Mrs Henderson Presents

  • The Cultural Post
One of the very first things any history student gets taught is objectivity. In fact, the most effective way to judge a distant era is to do it without judgement of values. While Stephen Frears's Mrs Henderson Presents more or less ignores that rule, it's a humorous and smart observation of a time when Great Britain was still trying to break away from the strict Victorian values.

The film is based on a true story. After her husband's death in 1937, Laura Henderson (Judi Dench) inherits his wealth and doesn't intend to be bored stiff by widowhood. On a whim, she buys a derelict London theatre, calls it the Windmill Theatre and persuade impresario Vivian Van Damm (Bob Hoskins) to run it even though both of them are at loggerheads. However, Henderson and Van Damm will go down in history for running a non-stop revue. Furthermore, they'll shock a government
