Get Even

In a secret act of skillful revenge, four private school classmates team up and work together to expose a string of schoolwide injustices.

On the surface Kitty, Margot, Bree and Olivia appear to have nothing in common but there's one passion which unites them - to expose injustice.

They form their own secret society, DGM - they Don't Get Mad, they Get Even - playing anonymous pranks to expose bullies.

But when their latest target, Ronny, ends up dead with a DGM card in his hands, the girls realise that they're not as anonymous as they thought - someone now wants revenge.

Bannerman School might look beautiful from the outside, but there's something corrupt under the surface.

Competition is encouraged to the point of cruelty, bullying is common and accepted by the establishment; the way the teachers see it, if you can't take it you're not a good fit for the school.

The four girls set out to deliver justice for those who have been wronged at the school, but the tables are turned against them.

DGM find themselves framed for a crime they didn't commit. Their only option is to discover who the true murderer is, why they were framed, and clear their name once and for all.

It's also a time of first love, exams and identity crisis and for Kitty, Margot, Bree and Olivia.

The themes of love and relationships, trust, true friendship, empowerment, teen identity and independence weave throughout the series.

Even when they are focused on grades or guys, jeopardy is never far away.
 

Louis Theroux's Altered States

Channel: SABC3
TX Time: 20h30
Genre: Documentary Series

Louis Theroux's Altered States

This four-part Louis Theroux series looks at the unusual ways modern America deals with birth, love and death.

In the series premiere, "Love Without Limits": For hundreds of years, romantic relationships in western society have been based on the idea of monogamy: two people, together, for ever.

But with nearly half of all US marriages ending in divorce, perhaps the traditional model is no longer fit for purpose.

Louis travels to Portland, Oregon, the heart of a movement seeking to rewrite the rulebook on how we conduct intimate relationships and experience family life.

Portland, whose city motto is 'Keep Portland Weird', is seen as the US capital of polyamory and ethical non-monogamy, the practice of openly and transparently having multiple relationships that go further than just sex.

Louis embeds himself with families who have made the bold decision to open up their relationships in a number of different ways, whether inviting others into existing relationships or allowing partners to seek romance elsewhere.

He discovers that for many, more partners means more love and more happiness.

But for others, multiple relationships have led to jealousy, upset and broken hearts.

Genre: Documentary

Charles & Di: The Truth Behind Their Wedding

Find out the truth behind the fairytale wedding of the century, which was watched by three quarters of a billion people around the world.

All wasn't as perfect as it seemed...

At 11h30 on Wednesday 29 July 1981, 20-year-old Lady Diana Spencer walked up the aisle of St Paul's Cathedral towards HRH Prince Charles.

This documentary uses rich archive and interviews with people who knew the couple to tell the revealing, and often, shocking inside story of the seven days running up to the wedding.

It compares what the jubilant public saw from the outside to the doubt, fear and heartbreak suffered privately by two individuals propelled by a fate they couldn't control.

The Umbrella Academy 2

Reunited by their father's death, estranged siblings with extraordinary powers uncover shocking family secrets - and a looming threat to humanity.

Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya's 2019 apocalypse was risky.

Well, he was right - the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960.

Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they're the only ones who survived.

Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which - spoiler alert! - turns out is a result of the group's disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?).

Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse.

All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins.

But seriously, no pressure or anything.
