Unmarried 3

Mjolo? It's complicated.

Especially in the age of social media fame and when you're a woman in her 20s, balancing finding yourself with finding Mr Right (or Mr Right-for-social-media), all the while hoping your real life keeps up with the one you're selling online.

That's the central theme of Season 3, which makes a return with a new cast, new storyline and new problems for its characters to tackle.

While the first two seasons dealt with women in their mid-to-late 30s navigating motherhood, romance and careers, Season 3 follows three friends in their 20s trying to survive the concrete jungle and all its predators.

This season explores what it means to be unmarried in your 20s in South Africa, from sexual liberation and the freedom to choose who you want to be with, to relationship statuses that range from 'just vibing' to polyamory.

It's a tough dating landscape, especially when relationships are put under social media scrutiny.

Dating in the millennial and Gen-Z pool is a dog-eat-dog world.

This season we meet social media darling Enzo (Khanya Mkangisa), proud troll Rea (Mapula Mafole) and Confidence (Florence Mokgatsi), who is the heart of the threesome's sometimes rocky friendship.

Other cast members this season include Kabelo Moalusi, Jesse Suntele and Lulu Hela.

Point of Order 4

When parliament becomes comedy, this show turns comedy into parliament.

Point of Order is an original, weekly panel show hosted by Madam Speaker Tumi Morake.

This is where top comedians pretend they're politicians and show off their knowledge of national and world affairs – or lack thereof.

Point of Order is a TV show set in a mock parliament where local comedians become "Government" and "Opposition" and face off against each other in a series of rounds, each designed to test the knowledge, wit and quick thinking ability.

Presiding over it all is Madam Speaker, gavel in hand, ready to keep order, and possibly even recognise people.

The show allows for SA's top comedians to introduce important and vital new laws, like there must be a compulsory quota of 90% local content when singing in the shower..

It also gives special guests a chance to talk... well politics, almost like real MPs do – perhaps only a little more intelligibly.

This isn't fast paced stand up; this is a more off the cuff atmosphere as the comedians don't know what's coming next.

Coming up this season:

Episode 1: Zolani Mahola

Singer Zolani Mahola is the first guest of the new season.

She joins our bunch of jokers to debate the temperature of toilet seats and the dangers of airplane seats.

Episode 2: Casper de Vries

Today we're going to the dogs, and Casper de Vries is coming with.

They discuss the terrors of spoilers and the joys of spooning and have all the fun it is legal to have on TV.

Episode 3: Sekoati Tsubane

SK joins the show to add a little smoothness to proceedings.

It's all about laughing at ourselves, laughing at gentrification, and laughing about our country.

Episode 4: Melanie Du Bois

The sizzling Melanie Du Bois joins Point of Order today and things get a little heated, from hot debates on cooking to a grilling on man jewellery.

Episode 5: Bianca Le Grange

Bianca Le Grange joins us on Point of Order today for a show that is anything but idle.

From the need to fiddle with your brain public, to our president's private residence, no stone is left unturned on this episode.

Episode 6: David Johnson

David Johnson joins us to tackle the juicy topic of Oreos.

The team also has fierce debates about what's up with WhatsApp, and takes time to stop and indulge in their favourite pastime - laughter.

Episode 7: Dino Bravo

We're joined in parliament today by DJ Dino Bravo, to mix in on the best - and most politically correct - ways to party.

It's comedy - but with a sick beat.

Episode 8: Marcelle Gordon

Sports presenter Marcelle Gordon joins us to prove that she is a good sport, and to laugh about braais and how little some of the panelists know.

Episode 9: Ilse Klink

Today we're joined by Ilse Klink, who gets down and dirty with the comedians to discuss a little toilet humour - but then they clean up their act with the wonder of sunlight soap.

Episode 10: Chef Tjaart

Chef Tjaart joins this week to try and get a rise out of the comedians.

They debate the merits of expats coming to SA on holiday - and really, why wouldn't they want to?

Episode 11: Sipho Hlongwane

Journalist Sipho Hlongwane joins for some fun, discussing the appropriate emoji for you, and navigating the emotional chaos of open relationships and fake pockets.

Episode 12: Chantal Herman

We are joined by actress Chantal Herman who joins a heated debate on innovative uses for old people, while Nicholas Goliath discusses something your parents all warned you about - and it's not himself.

Episode 13: Leeanda Reddy

Leeanda is ready to play, jumping into the action with the panelists to discuss serious issues that affect each one of us.
