Call to Arms: Battle for Goose Green

The Battle for Goose Green was one of the most well-documented events of the Falklands War between British and Argentinian forces in 1982.

Outnumbered British troops experienced fierce fighting with Argentine forces during the 40-hour battle, during which 17 British troops and 47 Argentine soldiers lost their lives.

Return to the Falklands takes two distinguished British servicemen back to the Islands and battlefields where they fought during the Falklands War more than 30 years ago.

What will their reactions be as they retrace their steps on the battlegrounds again?

Cameras follow the two veterans on an emotional journey around the Islands, hearing their personal stories and about the war they fought.

And they ask perhaps the most important question of all: was it all worth it?

Power Book II: Ghost 2

Power Book II: Ghost picks up shortly after the Earth-shattering events of Power as Tariq St. Patrick grapples with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed.

The sequel then follows Tariq navigating his new life, in which his desire to shed his father's legacy comes up against the mounting pressure to save his family.

The show begins its second season with Tariq St. Patrick still running from a legacy that haunts him.

Forced into the choice to take the life of his professor, Jabari Reynolds, Tariq finds himself drifting further from that which he's been fighting to protect: his family.

With Tasha in witness protection, Tariq knows he must sacrifice anything to save what's left of his family.

Unable to do it alone, he turns to those wielding power and influence: Davis MacLean and his new partner, Cooper Saxe, as well as Rashad Tate.

All of these options come with a steep price, so it's back to business with the Tejadas.

However, with two murders involving Stansfield, Monet Tejada has to question if Tariq is what's best for her family as she seeks to protect her nephew's professional basketball prospects at all costs.

Her kids, Dru and Diana, question her moves as she grows more distracted, especially when Monet goes as far as trusting Cane again despite his actions against the family.

In doing so, Monet finds herself in bed with Mecca, a man who wants to show her a whole new world, potentially at the cost of destroying her old one, forcing Monet to lean on Tariq, who must decide what he really wants and what he's going to sacrifice to get it.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Free Will is Never Free": Tariq tries to resume his normal college life and Brayden provides Tariq an escape.

Also, Monet makes plans for the business to protect her children and Cane seeks out a new family to take the streets for himself.
