Okay I’m still pretty much all about the Thrones lately but that doesn’t mean I’m not totally excited about what’s coming to Showmax this month. There’s a whole lot of content but here is what I’m most excited for:
1. Game of Thrones S8 (15 April)
Let’s start with the obvious, as it is released in the US (and broadcasted on M-Net) it will be available to watch the next evening on Showmax, so no waiting for us! I’m going to have a lot more to say about GoT but as we enter the final season expect to cry, to be shocked and to expect the unexpected.
2. A Million Little Things (15 April 2019)
This show made waves last year when it was released. Basically it’s about how a suicide shakes up a group of friends and how their lives are changed because of it.
3. A Very English Affair (1 April 2019)
I love me so Hugh Grant, especially when he is given a good role to portray. In A Very English Affair, Hugh Grant portrays the real-life Jeremy Thorpe, who had tongues wagging in the 1960s. He was a Liberal Member of Parliament engaged in a secret affair with a man at a time when homosexuality was illegal.
4. The Good Wife S1-7 (1 April 2019)
One of my all time favourite series comes to Showmax this month. Like really, the Kings outdid themselves with the writing on this show and I will stan forever. Alicia Florrick is the wife of a disgraced states attorney who has to go back to work as a lawyer when her husband is sent to jail.
5. Back to the Future Trilogy (4 April 2019)
This is forever a classic, but this trilogy about Marty McFly a teenage with a good friend, Doc, who has cracked how to time travel with his DeLorean. It’s fun, it’s entertaining and 100% worth the rewatch.
6. The Big Sick (29 April 2019)
One of the best romcoms that I’ve seen recently (the screenplay was nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar). An aspiring stand-up comedian has a one-night stand with a student who watched his set. But it materialises into a relationship complicated by their different cultures, his traditional parents and her illness.
7. Everything Must Fall (25 April 2019)
This multiple-award-winning documentary focuses on the #feesmustfall student protests that rocked South Africa in 2015. Four Wits University students and their vice-chancellor recount the story.
Watch all of these on Showmax
