While the town is saddened by the news, they don’t find it suspicious given the stress local farmers have been under during the year-long drought. But Luke’s parents are certain of their son’s innocence and convince Aaron to team up with the local lawman (Keir O’Donnell) to uncover the truth. The problem is, Aaron isn’t exactly welcomed back into the town with open arms – with many believing he played a part in the death of a young girl twenty years earlier, when he and Luke (Joe Klocek and Sam Corlett as the younger men) lied about their whereabouts at the time.

Rutherford Falls (Stan)


From the creator of The Good Place and Parks and Recreation comes the laugh-out-loud new sitcom series, RUTHERFORD FALLS – streaming now, only on Stan.

He spends his days guiding tours of school children through his family’s museum, glorifying Lawrence “Big Larry” Rutherford’s part in the town’s origin story. Meanwhile, Reagan curates a neglected Cultural Center, situated within the tribe’s Running Thunder Casino and often mistaken for the casino’s gift shop. The trouble begins when Mayor Chisenhall (Dana L. Wilson) plans to remove a statue of Big Larry in the town’s centre. It might sound like a plot ripped from the headlines, but in this case the statue is just in the middle of the road and people keep crashing their cars into it.

It’s eventually revealed why Cassie’s doing this night after night – to avenge a tragedy that befell her best friend when they were both in medical school. But when she meets Ryan (Bo Burnham), a man she barely remembers from her college days who seems completely unlike the others, her obsession takes a back seat to her growing feelings for him.

Alongside them is Maladie who absorbs pain, Horatio a healer, Nicolas the smelly, Annie the firestarter and Primrose the ten-foot teenager.

Lydia’s successful transformation proves the solution works – and once Emily takes it to gain invisibility, the pair deck themselves out in rubber suits they can’t wash and a car they can’t quite get into and out of to start fighting crime.

Together with Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash, this unparalleled team of superheroes will need to step up to save the planet from becoming a post-apocalyptic hellscape.

Coming 2 America (Amazon Prime Video)


It’s the comedy classic sequel 33 years in the making: Eddie Murphy reprises his role as King Akeem in COMING 2 AMERICA, streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. Having just discovered he has a son, King Akeem returns to where it all began in New York City. With the help of his valet Semmi (played by Arsenio Hall), the pair track down Zamunda’s rightful heir to the throne – bringing him back to their wealthy African nation, along with his mum played by Leslie Jones.

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (Telstra TV Box Office)


Bridesmaids co-writers Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo team up with Jamie Dornan for the delightfully goofy comedy, BARB AND STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR – available now via Express Release on Telstra TV Box Office. Culotte-clad, frizzy-permed Midwesterners Barb and Starbara are the absolute best of friends – sharing a gaudily decorated home together since Barb’s husband died in a shopping stampede and Star’s man left her for a woman with bigger toes. Both working at the “hottest place in town”, the Jennifer Convertibles furniture store, they spend more time sitting and gabbing than selling – and it’s not long before they’re laid off. Deciding it’s time for adventure in their lives, they blow their redundancy pay on a flashy trip to Florida where they meet the mysteriously suave Edgar (Dornan). But little do they know, their vacation spot is the target of an evil genius, hellbent on destroying the town and everyone in it.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians: The Farewell Season (hayu)


Get set for an emotional final chapter as we say farewell to the world’s most-watched family in KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS Season 20, streaming from Friday 19 March on hayu. For over 14 years, we’ve been invited into their homes as Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie and Kris shared their lives, their loves, their joy and their heartache for the cameras. Whether they were “doing amazing, sweetie”, pranking each other, ugly-crying (“there’s people that are dying, Kim”) or beating each other up (watch out for that handbag), they’ve been our favourite brand of reality drama for so long it’s hard to imagine TV without them. Thankfully, there’s still one more season – and this one is sure to spill the beans on the breakdown of Kim and Kanye’s marriage, Khloé and Tristan’s plans to expand their family, plus much, much more.

Murder Among the Mormons (Netflix)


True-crime fans are in for a treat with the captivating new three-part docuseries, MURDER AMONG THE MORMONS – streaming now on Netflix. In October 1985, two deadly pipe-bombings sent shockwaves throughout the usually tranquil community of Salt Lake City, Utah. As police began investigating the attacks, they quickly discovered the victims were connected by their involvement in the lucrative and highly sought-after trade of historical documents relating to the Church of Latter Day Saints. With some of the pieces purportedly calling into question many longstanding tenets of the Mormon faith, the threat of institutional damage alone could have been grounds for motive. But when a third bomb exploded, almost killing the city’s most prolific historical documents dealer, investigators began to take a closer look into the work of a man who was seemingly at the centre of it all.

Black Hands (Stan)


New to Stan this week is the five-part New Zealand drama, BLACK HANDS – telling the real-life story behind one of the country’s most infamous multiple homicide cases. Based on the popular podcast and subsequent book of the same name by journalist Martin van Beynen, the series details the events leading up to and following the 1994 murders of the Bain family in their Dunedin home. Luanne Gordon and Joel Tobeck play parents Margaret and Robin Bain, whose marriage was struggling in part due to Margaret’s paranoid conviction that her husband and children were infected by Satan, as well as her fixation with demolishing their house to build a sanctuary. Richard Crouchley plays David, their eldest son – a university drop-out who spent his days doting on his mother before claiming to have found his entire family gunned down upon returning from his morning paper route.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 12 March:

When a young orphaned boy (Jahzir Bruno) is approached by a strange woman offering candy, his grandmother (Spencer) warns him of the danger of witches and their sinister plot to exterminate all children. Fearing her grandson has been targeted by a witch, Grandma decides they should hide out for a while at a luxury coastal resort. But unwittingly, she picks the very same venue chosen by the Grand High Witch (Hathaway) for her upcoming convention – and they arrive just as the witches of the world begin to descend. As plans are unveiled to transform every child on earth into a mouse, it’s not long before the boy and his new friend Bruno fall prey. But with savvy Gran on their side, they just might outsmart these diabolical sorceresses.

Genera+ion (BINGE)


New to BINGE this week is the HBO Max Original coming-of-age series, GENERA+ION – with the first three episodes available to stream now. Executive Produced by Lena Dunham, the series takes a somewhat serious, somewhat tongue-in-cheek look into the lives of a group of high schoolers navigating love, loyalty and family. Shown from each of the unique perspectives of its characters, the very snackable 30 minute episodes introduce us to Chester (Justice Smith), the charismatic star water polo player testing the limits of the school’s dress code and its new guidance counsellor (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett); Nathan, who has a crush on Chester and meets him with the help of his friend Riley (Chase Sui Wonders); Nathan’s close sister Naomi (Chloe East), who discovers a secret her brother’s been keeping from her; and Greta (Haley Sanchez), who is struggling with her mother’s deportation to Mexico.

Making Their Mark (Amazon Prime Video)


Get a behind-the-scenes look into the AFL season that almost didn’t happen with the seven-part docuseries, MAKING THEIR MARK – streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. When COVID-19 reached Australia in early 2020, season preparations were already well underway and the league was forced to quickly rethink how the game could be played – and watched by fans – under a rapidly growing number of social distancing restrictions and health regulations. The series takes an in-depth look into how the season unfolded for the players, coaches and executives from six teams, their struggles with injuries, isolation from family, maintaining motivation and the intensity of competition – especially across the 20-day, 33-game “Footy Frenzy” condensed rounds – and culminating in an historic Grand Final, played for the first time in the game’s history outside of Victoria.

Manhunt: Deadly Games (Stan)


Discover the incredibly true story behind the case of the Olympic Park Bomber in MANHUNT: DEADLY GAMES, with all ten episodes available to stream now on Stan. During an outdoor rock concert to welcome the world’s spectators to the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, a pipe bomb was detonated from a backpack beneath a park bench – sending shrapnel throughout the crowd that killed one woman and wounded hundreds more. Many more could have died that day, if not for the actions of overzealous security guard Richard Jewell (played by Cameron Britton). But while Jewell is praised as an instant hero by the media, to the shock and delight of his mother (Judith Light), a former employer informs the FBI that the man is mentally unstable. Suddenly, Jewell becomes the prime suspect in what will become a five-year manhunt to track down the truth.

Our favourites streaming for the week of 5 March:

The Walking Dead (BINGE)

The final six episodes of THE WALKING DEAD SEASON 10 are here at last, streaming weekly on BINGE from Monday 1 March. Now that the Whisperer War is over, our survivors are left to deal with the aftermath. Fan-favourite Maggie is back (played by Lauren Cohan) – and given what Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) did to her husband Glen (Steven Yeun) back in season six, she’s understandably less than thrilled about him being released. And Negan should be worried too about what Maggie’s return will mean for his place in the community. But Maggie might just have bigger things to worry about than settling old scores – the survivors face a chilling new threat from a group called The Reapers and an as-yet unknown character named “Pope”, revealed by a Reaper attacker right before calmly blowing himself up.

Tell Me Your Secrets (Amazon Prime Video)

From the Executive Producer of Big Little Lies and The Undoing comes the intensely gripping psychological thriller series, TELL ME YOUR SECRETS – with all ten episodes available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video. Lily Rabe stars as Emma, a woman working to rebuild her life with a new identity in the Witness Protection Program after her boyfriend Kit (Xavier Samuel) was sent to prison for murdering several women in Louisiana. By day she’s trying to fit in without getting too close to anyone – and at night she’s troubled by horrific visions, but unclear about whether they’re just nightmares or actually memories of her involvement. Meanwhile, Amy Brenneman plays Mary, a mother desperately trying to find her missing daughter, who was taken seven years earlier. Hiring a convicted serial predator (Hamish Linklater), just out of jail and looking to redeem his soul, the lines between right and wrong are dangerously blurred in this compelling and mysterious series.

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2021 (SBS On Demand)

It’s that time of the year again: The annual LGBTQI+ celebration that is the SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS PARADE is on this Saturday 6 March, streaming live around the world (that’s right, no geo–block) from 7:30pm (AEDT) on SBS On Demand. If you were wondering if the pandemic was going to rain on this parade, then think again. As one of the first significant Pride events in the world to be staged since COVID-19 hit, to ensure the social distancing of spectators and participants this year the parade will sashay on over from its usual Oxford Street parade route to the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground. Hosted by comedians Joel Creasey and Zoë Coombs Marr, drag performer Courtney Act and television presenter Narelda Jacobs, there won’t be the large floats we’re used to – but you can be sure there will still be an abundance of fabulous costumes and glittering performances to brighten your night.

Freaky (Telstra TV Box Office)


For a scarily fun new take on the classic body-swap genre, check out Blumhouse’s comedy-horror FREAKY – available now on Telstra TV Box Office. Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies, Blockers) plays Millie, an unpopular seventeen year old high school student and occasional football team mascot beaver who spends her days hanging with her besties Josh (Misha Osherovich) and Nyla (Celeste O’Connor), enduring the taunts of bullies and flying almost completely under the radar of her crush. While waiting for a ride home from the homecoming game, she’s hunted down by the Blissfield Butcher (Vince Vaughn) – the town’s infamous yet elusive masked serial killer. After he attempts to kill Millie with a stolen magical dagger, the two wake up in each other’s bodies – and now he has the perfect disguise for his latest murder rampage. With just 24 hours to stab him back before the change becomes permanent, Millie will have to outsmart the Butcher in this gory game of cat and mouse.

Industry (BINGE)


Step inside the insanely cutthroat world of investment banking in the gritty new HBO/BBC drama series, INDUSTRY – with all eight episodes streaming now on BINGE. Shown from the perspective of five young and ambitious grads, each hungrily competing for a coveted place at London’s prestigious Pierpoint & Co, this unbelievably addictive series from Executive Producer Lena Dunham (Girls) sees the new kids thrown head-first into the high pressure world of trading – where the rules are unclear, boundaries are blurred and any slip-ups could be their last. We meet American outsider Harper (Myha’la Herrold) keen to impress her bosses Eric (Ken Leung) and Daria (Freya Mavor) with a bold client proposition that doesn’t turn out the way she thought it would, working-class Robert (Harry Lawley) who parties a little too hard for week one, straight-laced Gus (David Jonsson) who is having an affair with his mentor (Will Tudor), perpetually underestimated Yasmin (Marisa Abela) and Hari (Nabhaan Rizwan) whose non-stop approach to work leads to a draw-dropping first episode conclusion.

The Drowning (Stan)


New to Stan this month is the twist-filled crime drama miniseries, THE DROWNING – with all four episodes available to stream now. When a young boy goes missing during a lakeside picnic, the authorities file the disappearance as a drowning, despite dredging the lake and being unable to find any remains. Nine years later, we find the boy’s mother Jodie (played by Jill Halfpenny) still suffering – now divorced from her husband (Dara Devaney) and struggling to keep her landscape gardening business afloat. On her way to a pitch meeting with a potential client, she happens to spot a teenager (Cody Molko) on his way to school. And he looks exactly like a grown-up version of her son. Jumping on the school bus to get closer to him, she notices he even has the same scar below his eye as her son had. Slowly and surreptitiously working her way into the boy’s school and home life, she’s determined to find out the truth – in spite of the boy’s over-protective parents and the fact that nobody is willing to believe her.

Aftertaste (ABC iview)


Erik Thomson (All Saints, Packed to the Rafters) and newcomer Natalie Abbott star in the charmingly entertaining new Australian comedy series, AFTERTASTE – with new episodes streaming each Wednesday from 9:00pm on ABC iview. Thomson plays celebrity chef Easton West, an outrageously over-the-top character who has landed himself in hot water after monumentally walloping an unimpressed food critic with one full half of a pig’s carcass. With nowhere else to go – and no one else willing to put up with his abuse – he heads back to his country hometown. With the help of his disarmingly loveable nineteen year-old niece, Diana (Abbott) – herself a talented pastry chef, he sees an opportunity to revive his angrily out-of-touch image by partnering up to open a new restaurant. But it’s not long before he’s up to his old tricks again – screaming at the wildlife, clashing with the locals (including Rachel Griffiths) and managing to alienate his only remaining ally.

2 Hearts (Telstra TV Box Office)


Grab the popcorn and a box of tissues: New to Telstra TV Box Office this week is the tear-jerking romance, 2 HEARTS. Based on an incredibly inspiring true story spanning multiple decades, the film follows two parallel love stories ultimately brought together in a dramatic turn of events. Australia’s Jacob Elordi (from Euphoria, The Kissing Booth) stars as carefree college student Chris, who falls in love at first sight with kind-hearted freshman Sam (Riverdale’s Tiera Skovbye). Meanwhile, wealthy Cuban businessman Jorge (Adan Canto), who has suffered from a life-threatening lung disease since childhood, meets flight attendant and future wife Grace (Radha Mitchell) when she helps settle his nerves during take-off. Based on the book, ‘All My Tomorrows’ by Eric Gregory – the father of the real-life Chris character – the story proves that miracles really are possible.

Soulmates (Amazon Prime Video)


How can you tell if your partner truly is “the one”? SOULMATES, the new six-part anthology series on Amazon Prime Video, imagines a future where you might be able to do just that. From the co-writer of Black Mirror, Will Bridges, and with an all-star cast including Sarah Snook (Succession), Bill Skarsgård (It), David Costabile (Billions), Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things) and Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), the series covers six separate stories of modern relationships impacted by a new technology called “The Test” – a procedure that can determine, with scientific certainty, your life’s one true love. From happily married couples feeling peer-pressured into taking part, to surprisingly romantic detours on the road to finding love – and the struggle to put one’s trust behind being paired up with complete strangers, this suspenseful and often dark drama series is the absolute antithesis of romcom.

Emma (BINGE)


Before she became known for playing chess prodigy Beth Harmon in Netflix’s hit series, The Queen’s Gambit, Anya Taylor-Joy starred in 2020’s wickedly funny adaptation of Jane Austen’s EMMA – streaming now on BINGE – in a performance that earned her a Best Actress Golden Globe nomination just last week. One-time successful matchmaker Emma Woodhouse feels she has found her life’s true calling. Eager to put her skills to good use, she settles on finding a beau for her impressionable young friend, Harriet Smith (Mia Goth) – despite Harriet already having her eyes set on local farmer Robert Martin (Connor Swindells), Emma’s wiser friend Knightley (Johnny Flynn) urging her not to meddle – and her chosen match for Harriet (Josh O’Connor) unintendedly falling for Emma instead. And that’s just the beginning. Despite her best attempts at plotting the relationships of everyone else around her, has Emma been clueless about her own true love all along?

Malcolm & Marie (Netflix)


Streaming on Netflix and playing in select cinemas is MALCOLM & MARIE – a tumultuous “story of love” from writer and director Sam Levinson, the Emmy-winning creator of Euphoria. Zendaya (also from Euphoria) and John David Washington (Tenet) play the titular characters (actually the only characters) – a filmmaker and his girlfriend who, returning home after the premiere of Malcolm’s film, wait anxiously for the reviews to start pouring in. While Marie heads quietly to the kitchen to cook pasta, still glittering in her metallic red-carpet gown sans heels, a tuxedoed Malcolm obliviously rambles on about his own talent and the critics who don’t or won’t appreciate it. But Marie is furious. In a speech he gave earlier, he neglected to thank her. And it’s the perfect catalyst for her to vent what’s really on her mind. They fight, they make up, and then they dig deeper and go to war all over again in this gorgeously luxe cinematic experience.

Get the flock together for an Aussie comedy with a lot of heart: RAMS is available now on Telstra TV Box Office. Sam Neill and Michael Caton play brothers Colin and Les Grimurson, two sheep farmers in Mount Barker, Western Australia who love their prized herds, but can’t stand each other. Despite living on neighbouring farms, they haven’t spoken in forty years. And every year their bitter feud is reignited at the local Breeder Championship, where the valley’s best ram is judged and the two brothers are placed in direct competition. But when Les’s winning ram is later found to be sick with a contagious virus, the authorities step in and order a cull of every sheep in the area. Now the brothers will have to put their differences behind them if they’re going to save their family’s champion breeding legacy.

Walker (Stan)

There’s no Chuck Norris in sight, but fans of the 90s series ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ will be happy the legend is continuing with the new reboot series, WALKER – streaming now on Stan. Jared Padalecki plays the new Cordell Walker, returning from a two-year undercover operation to face the reality he’s been avoiding. Shortly before leaving, his wife Emily (played by Jared’s real life wife and Supernatural co-star, Genevieve Padalecki) – a charitable woman who spent her life helping those less fortunate – was gunned down. Now Walker is fixated on finding her killer. Rebuilding a relationship with his teenage children, Stella and August, who felt abandoned in their hour of need, Walker’s also adjusting to a new partner, Micki Ramirez (Lindsey Morgan) – one of the first female Texas Rangers – and his former partner, Larry James (Coby Bell) being promoted as his boss.

Streaming on Netflix this week, and showing in limited theatres, is the stirring true story of THE DIG. Set in 1939 just prior to the onset of World War II, Carey Mulligan plays Edith Pretty – a widowed mother and wealthy landowner in rural Suffolk, England. Fascinated by archeology from a young age, she and her late husband purchased their country estate in Sutton Hoo because of a number of large earthen mounds on the land – considered by many to be ancient burial sites. Employing renowned archeological excavator, Basil Brown (played by Ralph Fiennes) to uncover what’s beneath them before the eventual outbreak of war, what they discover inside is nothing short of astonishing. Also starring Lily James, Ben Chaplin and Johnny Flynn.

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.

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).

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.

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.
