Whether you’re in the mood for a laugh, a tear-jerking drama or some edge-of-your seat action, we’ve got what you need to stay entertained this week on Telstra TV.

It’s A Sin (Stan)

From Russell T Davies, creator of the groundbreaking series Queer as Folk (also on Stan), comes the joyous yet heartbreaking coming-of-age story, IT’S A SIN – with all five episodes streaming now on Stan. Set in 1981, the series follows three young gay men who leave behind their homophobic small towns for big-city London – eventually becoming friends and flatmates during the onset of the AIDS crisis. There’s Ritchie (played by Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander), who drops his parents’ (Keeley Hawes and Shaun Dooley) coveted law degree to study acting after falling for drama student Ash (Nathaniel Curtis) and befriending kindred soul Jill (Lydia West). Timid and naive Welshman Colin (Callum Scott Howells), who is taken under the wing of an older colleague (Neil Patrick Harris) at the tailor shop where they work. And the unapologetically queer Roscoe (Omari Douglas), who escapes his religious Nigerian family to manage a Soho bar and winds up in a relationship of sorts with Conservative MP, Arthur (Stephen Fry).

Holey Moley (7plus)

A HOLE lot of family fun is coming to 7plus this week with the premiere of the monumentally enjoyable mini-golf competition series, HOLEY MOLEY – teeing off from 7:30pm on Monday 1 February. Hosted by Sonia Kruger, with commentary from Matt Shirvington and actor/comedian Rob Riggle, the series puts golfing champions through their paces on a putt-putt course of epic proportions – filled with deviously difficult obstacles like body-slamming windmills, flame-throwing dragons and supersized rubber duckies designed to knock them off their games. Competitors vying for the $100,000 prize include Australia’s number one female golfer, Montana Strauss; James Carr, who played against Tiger Woods in the Australian Masters; Australia’s reigning mini-golf champion, Colette Norton; and Guinness World Record-holder for golf ball control, Henry Epstein.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 11 January:

Archenemy (Telstra TV Box Office)

Is Max Fist an interdimensional superhero? Or just a delusional drunk living under a bridge? And does it really even matter? Joe Manganiello stars in the action-packed ARCHENEMY – available now via Express Release on Telstra TV Box Office. Roaming the streets (and dive bars) of Los Angeles, rough and tough Max will tell anyone willing to listen that he’s really a God-like hero from the planet Chromium. Brought to Earth against his will, he’s been starved of the “cosmic blood” that was the source of his powers. Nobody believes him, of course – until a wannabe-influencer named Hamster (played by Skylan Brooks) decides Max’s story could help him score a job at clickbait publisher, Trendible. And when Hamster’s drug-dealing sister Indigo (Zolee Griggs) finds herself in trouble after double-crossing her boss (Glen Howerton), Max seizes the opportunity to prove himself to them all in fantastically brutal form.

The Stand (Amazon Prime Video)

James Marsden, Whoopi Goldberg and Alexander Skarsgård star in Stephen King’s post-apocalyptic pandemic miniseries, THE STAND – streaming from 15 January on Amazon Prime Video. Based on King’s 1978 novel (but feeling a whole lot more current), the series is set in a world where a lethal manmade strain of influenza known as “Captain Trips” infects and kills almost the entire world’s population. Those left behind, like Stu Redman (Marsden), appear to be immune to the virus – and as society collapses around them, they’re forced to find each other in an increasingly dangerous and chaotic world. As they do, the survivors begin to dream the same two dreams – in one they’re visited by a kindly 108 year old Nebraskan farmer named Mother Abagail (Goldberg), in the other they’re haunted by a threatening figure known as Randall Flagg (Skarsgård).

Night Stalker: The Hunt For a Serial Killer (Netflix)

Armchair detectives, this one’s for you – the latest Netflix true-crime series, NIGHT STALKER: THE HUNT FOR A SERIAL KILLER is streaming now, with all four episodes available from Wednesday 13 January. During the summer of 1985, the people of Los Angeles suffered through a stifling heatwave by day – and the threat of a terrifying serial killer by night. Breaking into his victim’s homes while they slept, this unpredictable killer kept an entire city on the brink of panic as reports of his seemingly random murders and sexual assaults flooded the evening news day after day. The series documents the work of young detective Gil Carrillo who worked around the clock with veteran investigator Frank Salerno to track down the murderer, while also hearing first-hand accounts from journalists on the ground at the time and survivors who suffered through this depraved monster’s cruelty.

A Discovery of Witches (BINGE)

After two long years, the wait is over – the much-anticipated second season of the addictively romantic supernatural series A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES is now streaming on BINGE, with all ten episodes available now. Australia’s Teresa Palmer plays historian and witch Diana Bishop, who along with forbidden lover and vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont (Matthew Goode) now find themselves transported to sixteenth century London, after timewalking at the end of last season to hide from The Congregation – a committee of witches, vampires and demons trying to track them down to access the Book of Life (a sacred manuscript that seemingly only Diana can access) and put a stop to their interspecies relationship. In the 1590s, Matthew reassumes his identity as poet and spy-to-the-Queen Matthew Roydon – and is reunited with best friend and demon, Kit Marlowe (Tom Hughes) who is immediately suspicious and unwelcoming towards Diana.
