Magnum P.I. 2
M-Net City (DStv 115)
Action, Police Procedural, Comedy-Drama
Jay Hernandez stars as Thomas Magnum in a modern take on the classic series about a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator in Hawaii.
A charming rogue, an American hero and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum lives in a guest cottage on Robin's Nest, the luxurious estate where he works as a security consultant to supplement his P.I. business.
The "majordomo" of the property is Juliet Higgins, a beautiful and commanding disavowed MI:6 agent whose second job is to keep Magnum in line, with the help of her two Dobermans.
When Magnum needs back-up on a job, he turns to his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors, Theodore "TC" Calvin, a former Marine chopper pilot who runs Island Hoppers, a helicopter tour business; and Orville "Rick" Wright, a former Marine door-gunner-turned-impresario of Oahu's coolest nightclub and the most connected man on the island.
Suspicious of Magnum's casual attitude and presence at his crime scenes, Detective Gordon Katsumoto (Tim Kang) finds that he and Magnum are more alike than either of them care to admit.
With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case.
In the Season 2 premiere, "Payback is for Beginners": While Magnum waits for Higgins to decide if she'll officially become his partner, he takes the case of a missing wife who witnessed her boss' murder during a bank robbery.
Also, Rick makes a big decision about his career.
In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Honor Among Thieves": An incorrigible pickpocket, Jin (guest star Bobby Lee), asks Magnum for help when a cellphone he recently lifted receives a very suspicious text message.
Also, Magnum is frustrated when Higgins still won't give him an answer to whether or not she will become his partner, and when Rick decides to make a bold career move, T.C. comes to the rescue.
Alaska: The Last Frontier 10
Discovery Channel (DStv 121)
This season, the Kilcher family will have to dig deep to overcome a number of challenges.
With a potentially explosive summer wildfire season on the horizon and a global pandemic reaching Alaska, the Homer natives must work together to ensure that they can continue to survive and thrive on the homestead that Yule Kilcher established 80 years ago.
Life is always unpredictable on the homestead, but this season when the COVID-19 pandemic hits Alaska, the Kilchers must adapt and rely on each other like never before.
When film crews must be evacuated, the Kilchers step up to the challenge and decide to continue to self-film their lives and the day-to-day mayhem of the homestead, and we see the family in a whole new way.
This season, with hunting off the homestead put on hold during the pandemic, Jane works to help fill the family's freezer with fish and becomes the main provider of meat this summer.
And after seeing so many locals hit hard economically, Eve plants a massive summer garden that is large enough to supply both the homestead and Homer's food bank with fresh fruits and vegetables.
Meanwhile, August takes the opportunity to follow in his grandfather Yule's footsteps as a filmmaker and document this unprecedented time on camera.
And the Kilchers work to overcome other difficulties as well.
As Atz Sr. plans to rebuild the first cabin his family ever lived in on the homestead, he suffers from several health scares that threaten to sideline this important project.
Atz Lee devotes the summer to building a new off-grid cabin in the backcountry, but is plagued by crippling episodes of PTSD from his life-threatening fall several years ago.
Helping Atz Lee with both the build and his PTSD is his 19-year-old son, Etienne, who became a man in his father's eyes this summer.
Otto, Charlotte and their 23-year-old son August must contend with two complicated cattle drives during the pandemic, as well as an emergency on Kilcher road after a rainstorm threatens to wash out the only passage to the homestead.
And Eivin, with his wife Eve and two young children at home, severely cuts his leg and must be rushed to an emergency doctor for help.
This year, for the first time ever, the outside world comes crashing into the homestead, and the Kilchers rally to protect their way of life for the future.
