Fynskrif 2

The second season starts three months later with Van Wyk en Vennote hanging by a thread after Hans retires.

Lara is so focused on getting new clients that she doesn't realise that she and Jaco are drifting apart.

And the murder case Katrien is busy with is threatening to ruin her life with Ben, as well as the practice's future.

The future for Corné doesn't look very bright either.

Wian and Anne are trying to define what their life together looks like.

Dolf makes a big decision regarding his relationship with Gertrude. Where things will end remains an open question.

Throughout the season Lara and Ben must take stock of their relationships with their loved ones and children.

Corné must decide what he stands for and justify his actions.

Hans must face retirement and Anne must decide whether she wants to remain a lawyer.

All the characters – the children included – will learn more about themselves when facing challenges.

As in the first season, there are a number of cases that present a challenge, including Ivan Nel (Armand Aucamp), who is back as a pop star who drives Dolf insane.

Divorces, cases regarding intellectual property, unfair dismissals and abuse are just a few of the problems the lawyers must face.

Two new characters join Van Wyk en Vennote this season: Lilani (Lea Vivier) is a clerk who returns after a year long sabbatical. She has always struggled emotionally and she and Corné have a dark history.

Also, Simon (De Klerk Oelofse) is a new important client.

Deon Cole: Cole Hearted

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00 (all episodes)
Genre: Comedy, Special

Deon Cole: Cole Hearted

Embracing his belief that comedy is the last raw form of expression, Deon Cole explains the right time to thank Jesus and the wrong time to say "welp."

He believes in being honest. Very honest. From his worst threesome to how he wiggled out of a speeding ticket, Deon speaks his truth.

Doubling down on his unrestrained and engaging set from the Netflix stand-up comedy series, The Standups, Cole beta tests bottomless jokes about offering mints to strangers, dining while Black, post-sex salutations and the preservation of comedy as the last raw form of expression.

Swamp People 10

Channel: HISTORY (DStv 186)
TX Time: 21h10
Genre: Docu-Reality, Wildlife

Swamp People 10

In the farthest corner of Louisiana lies the USA's largest swamp, a hidden world where nature rules and man fights back.

The people that live in this forbidding environment follow traditions dating back 300 years, to the earliest pioneers.

They are Swamp People, inheritors of a tradition of self-reliance and fierce independence that makes them true American originals.

This show follows these people through the most important time of their year - the 30-day alligator hunting season.

At its core, this is a story of a resilient spirit, the lost art of doing things the right way and the fierce desire to preserve a dying way of life from the encroaching modern world.

In the Season 10 premiere, "Clear and Present Danger": The swampers are faced with a gator invasion that's threatening their community like never before.

Determined to protect their neighbours, Troy teams up with swamp legend Terrel Evans, Jacob enlists python expert Dusty Crum to join the hunt, and veteran swamper Ronnie Adams puts his new partner, Ashley "Dead-Eye" Jones to the test as they venture into a wild swamp known as "the cemetery".

You see, this is the BIG problem with HISTORY - Swamp People is just so unebelievably random. Yes, they date back 300 years so there's a very tenuous link with history but really is just a loose excuse of a tie-up theme. It's much more suited to National Geographic if you ask me.
