The Mountain Between Us (BigPond Movies)

The Mountain Between Us, BigPond Movies on Telstra TV

Just in time for your date night is an epic romantic thriller, THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US, fresh from the cinema on BigPond Movies.

Grace and Frankie (Netflix)

Grace and Frankie, Netflix on Telstra TV

New to Netflix this week is the entire fourth season of GRACE AND FRANKIE, a charming comedy series from Friends creator Marta Kauffman about forming new relationships and adapting to change in your twilight years. When their husbands (played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) leave them to marry each other, uptight Grace (Jane Fonda) and new-age Frankie (Lily Tomlin) team up to take on the world. This season, they’re joined by Lisa Kudrow as Grace’s third-wheel friend Sheree.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams (Stan)

Electric Dreams, Stan on Telstra TV

If you’re a fan of the Netflix anthology series Black Mirror, check out PHILIP K. DICK’S ELECTRIC DREAMS. Four new episodes have been added this week on Stan, completing the entire first season. With an all-star cast including Bryan Cranston, Anna Paquin and Steve Buscemi, each stand-alone episode in this ten part sci-fi series explores an alternate future inspired by some uncomfortably familiar present day realities.

Watch the latest premium entertainment from across your favourite free-to-air channels, catch-up apps and streaming services, all in the one place on Telstra TV. Here are just a few of our top action, drama and comedy recommendations this week.

Blade Runner available for streaming

Blade Runner 2049 (BigPond Movies)

From revered Director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario, Prisoners) comes Blade Runner 2049, the blockbuster sequel to the 1982 cult classic – fresh from the cinema on BigPond Movies. Set 30 years after the original film, Ryan Gosling plays a bioengineered “replicant” human tasked with hunting down and retiring others of his kind. When he discovers an anomaly that could change everything for replicants, he goes in search of a missing former blade runner (played by Harrison Ford) to help unravel the mystery.

The End of the F***ing World available for streaming

The End of the F***ing World (Netflix)

New to Netflix is The End of the F***ing World, a binge-worthy British comedy series that puts a dark, deadpan spin on the teen romance genre. What starts out as an ironic relationship between an explosive angst-ridden rebel and the self-diagnosed psychopath who wants to kill her, blossoms into an intelligent tale of self-discovery, dealing with trauma and expressing kindness in a world full of turmoil.

The Detour available for streaming

The Detour (Stan)

Anyone who has struggled through a family road trip these holidays will relate to The Detour, with all episodes of season one and two of this hilariously adult comedy now streaming on Stan. Nate, Robin and their kids head off from New York to Florida for a family summer vacation, only to run into laugh-out-loud obstacles at every turn. Filled with curly conversations in the family car and strange encounters with the people they meet along their journey, this smartly written series never fails to surprise and charm.

Vikings season 5 available for streaming

Vikings (SBS On Demand)

And now in its fifth season is Vikings, airing Wednesdays at 9:35pm (AEST) on SBS and streaming weekly on SBS On Demand and BigPond Movies. Set in medieval Scandinavia, the series follows the political battles and territorial invasions of a group of Norsemen in the 13th-century. Season five brings about a clash between Ragnar Lothbrok’s sons as the Vikings battle to conquer the world. Jonathan Rhys Meyers joins the cast this season as a warrior bishop who challenges the Viking onslaught.
