The Oath 2

Channel: SABC3
TX Time: 21h30
Genre: Drama

The Oath 2

The Oath explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend.

Shedding light on corrupt and secret societies nearly impossible to join, only the chosen few make the cut - and once inside, members do what they must to shield each other from enemies who attack from both outside and within their own ranks.

The second season of the action-packed drama finds the Ravens attempting to free themselves from their debt to the cartel.

Themes including redemption and the meaning of family are examined in Season 2, pushing the characters to find a new path, conquer their inner demons and giving them one last chance to reclaim their lives as their own - all while trying to protect the ones they love in the process.

Created by Joe Halpin, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputy in South Central for 17 years, 12 of which as an undercover officer, the series takes an unforgiving look at the lives of those willing to risk it all, to have it all.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Revenge": The Ravens try to free the patriarch of the Velasquez family in an attempt to pay off their debt to the cartel.

Meanwhile, complications pit the Ravens against a dangerous new enemy.

Grey's Anatomy 17

Grey's Anatomy follows Meredith Grey and the team of doctors at Grey Sloan Memorial, who are faced with life-or-death decisions on a daily basis.

Together they discover that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white.

In the first episode of the series premiere double bill, "All Tomorrow's Parties": In the midst of the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Grey Sloan Memorial and its surgeons' lives have been turned upside down.

The Season 17 premiere picks up one month into the pandemic, and it's all-hands-on-deck as Meredith, Bailey and the rest of the Grey Sloan doctors find themselves on the frontlines of a new era.

Meanwhile, an unintentionally started fire has first responders from Station 19 bringing patients into the hospital for treatment.

In the second episode of the premiere, "The Center Won't Hold": Bailey finds herself in the middle of an argument with patients' families as they await news about their children who were injured in a fire.

Black Tax

Channel: Comedy Central (DStv 122)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Comedy

Black Tax

Sitcom which revolves around a successful professional woman and her family after the sudden arrival of her parents into her modest suburban townhouse.

The concept of "Black Tax" refers to paying it forward - a means of showing appreciation for all that your family has sacrificed to help propel you in life - a phenomenon that affects many families.

The series revolves around Thuli Dlamini (Jo-anne Reyneke) as she deals with the unspoken law of payback to the community of people that helped her get to where she is.

In the series, she navigates life as a single parent who juggles relationships, career and the slightly unhelpful arrival of her demanding mother and father.

Other starring cast members include Clementine Mosimane in the role of Thuli's mother, Martha; and Mandla Jwara as Sizwe, her father.

Other featured actors include Jason Goliath, Sne Dladla and Daniel Janks; as well as Mamodibe Ramodibe and Bahle Mashinini, who play the youngsters in Thuli's family.

This is a show about a young family, trying to find their feet after things go horribly wrong for their grandparents.

It's about coming together and being thankful for what you have, no matter how little.

In the series premiere, "The Cost": What is Black Tax? When you're Thuli Dlamini, it means your father losing his pension and your parents moving in with you.

In the second episode, "Maya Angelou": To mark Sizwe and Martha's relocation to her house, Thuli holds a ceremony to alert the ancestors, where a goat will be slaughtered.

This leaves Sihle in an awkward position.

Botched Up Bodies

Thanks to the modern looks-obsessed society, more and more people are resorting to surgery to achieve that perfect body or desired features.

But having succumbed to the temptation to go for the quick fix, choosing the cheapest option is now more common than ever.

With bargain basement cosmetic surgery comes a greater risk that something will go wrong.

And it's down to some of Britain's top surgeons to sort out these problems.

The documentary series returns to meet the people whose bodies have been botched and we gain exclusive, behind the scenes access to the renowned plastics unit at The Chelsea & Westminster Hospital and a team of leading cosmetic surgeons whose job it is to fix these problems and give these people the bums, boobs, faces and tums they've always wanted.

Season 1 opens with the surgical team correcting the cosmetic surgery damage for five unlucky women who came out disfigured after their procedures went wrong.
