Magnum P.I. 3

Magnum P.I. 3

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 3 premiere, "Double Jeopardy": Magnum and Higgins' new clients hire them to find their missing brother last seen on the island, leading to Higgins being shot and TC abducted when a secret case of revenge is revealed during the investigation.

Also, Higgins (and Magnum!) are surprised when her surgeon asks her out.
 

Monsters Inside: The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan

Channel: Netflix South Africa
TX Time: 10h00 (all episodes)
Genre: True Crime, Documentary Series

Monsters Inside: The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan

In the late 1970s, an accused serial rapist claims multiple personalities control his behaviour, setting off a legal odyssey that captivates America.

In 1977, a serial rapist struck Ohio State University.

Overwhelming evidence quickly led investigators to Billy Milligan, an aimless young man with a traumatic childhood and a criminal record.

Yet upon his arrest, Billy had no memory of the assaults, and his mannerisms seemed to change on the spot.

A parade of psychiatrists diagnosed him with multiple personality disorder (now known as dissociative identity disorder), eventually determining that as many as 24 distinct "multiples" existed within his mind.

In a case that captivated the nation, their analysis anchored a first-of-its-kind legal defence strategy, and Billy was found innocent by reason of insanity.

His trials, however, were far from over.

Director Olivier Megaton (Taken 2) brings his feature film sensibility to this investigative series, setting up cinematic interviews with the Milligan family, as well as friends, doctors and the law enforcement professionals who've tried to untangle the truth.

Over 40 years since the landmark verdict, nearly everyone is still asking questions: Were Billy's multiple personalities indeed controlling his actions, or were they a convenient cover for a brilliant narcissistic sociopath?

To what extent should charismatic criminals benefit from their notoriety?

And were Billy's most violent crimes still to come?

Welcoming a new judge along with blind taste testing for the first time, the biggest shock this season will be seeing who's crashing the My Kitchen Rules dinner parties.

Manu Feildel and Pete Evans return to host and judge the ultimate home-cooking battle as they accept dinner party invites in each state across the country.

This season we welcome new guest judge Colin Fassnidge to the table alongside returning guest judges Guy Grossi, Karen Martini and Liz Egan.

It's state versus state, plate against plate, as 12 teams of two attempt to out-dine and out-wine each other to see whose kitchen rules.

There will be triumphs, kitchen fires, laughter, tears and plenty of opinionated guests as they battle the clock and their nerves to plate up on time.

The top two teams will again battle it out in the grand final where they will present their ultimate dining menu to a full restaurant.

With $250,000 in prize money on offer, the knives will definitely be out.

Dear White People: Volume 4

Set against the backdrop of senior year at Winchester as well as a not-so-distant, post-pandemic future, Dear White People Vol. 4 finds our characters looking back at the most formative (and theatrical) year of their lives.

Both an Afro-futuristic and '90s-inspired musical event, Dear White People Vol. 4 is a can't-miss, farewell experience with one pitch-perfect promise: sometimes the only way to move forward is to throw it back.
