The Conners 2
M-Net (DStv 101)
A family grapples with parenthood, divorce, dating, aging and financial pressures in working-class America.
Through it all - the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns - with love, humour and perseverance, the family prevails.
In the Season 2 premiere, "Preemies, Weed and Infidelity": In the wake of Emilio's deportation, Jackie steps into the role of a paternal figure and creates a meticulous birth plan for Becky; but as the Conners know, nothing ever goes according to plan.
Meanwhile, Darlene is tangled in a complex love triangle with David and Ben, and - like her mother - Harris is caught up in a problem of her own.
A magazine-style show which takes a tasty trip around South Africa to find out how food is produced, sharing recipes and cultivating a love for seasonal and ethical ingredients.
The programme format is similar to a three- or four-course meal: each insert is made up of one course, which is prepared and served at different locations including restaurants, lodges, hotels, private homes, farms or in natural surroundings.
The goal is that you be left with a full understanding of the main ingredient of each course at the end of the show.
For instance, if the ingredient for the dessert is apples, the show goes to the orchard to find out how and where it is grown, then explore different varieties and follow the harvesting process through to the packaging.
Then the show will use this ingredient to make the dish on the menu.
In the Season 2 premiere, "Proe Soos Mode": the new season kicks off with fashionable ingredients.
For starters, Lindé and Yolani find out more about CBD oil and use it in hummus and flatbread.
For the main course, Lindé learns how to make kimchi that she uses in her Korean short rib wraps and active charcoal inspires Yolani to make a black pavlova for dessert.
