Baking with the Reys

Baking is a craft that is handed down from one generation to the next and a beautiful way to pass on family traditions.

However, many parents struggle to find recipes that are easy enough to spark an interest and get their children started in a way that feels rewarding.

Baking with the Reys is a 10-part cooking series filmed in the family kitchen of multi-platinum award-winning house musician Holly Rey.

This series that aims to trigger a love for baking will show you how to create fun activities for kids while baking healthy, delicious snacks and lunch box fillers for the family.

Although new to the foodie scene, Holly hails from a long line of foodies.

Having grown up close to her grandmother's apron strings, there is not a lot that she doesn't know about baking and preparing good, wholesome, home-cooked meals.

She is also the adoring big sister to Mimi Rey, who features as her co-host in the series.

Together, their fun and often comical approach to making child-friendly, quick and easy bakes, makes this pair the perfect hosts for a series that focuses on getting kids into the kitchen and enjoying every minute of family time.

From cupcakes to apple doughnuts, rainbow fruit pops, vegan meringues, to cheese straws and more, Baking with the Reys combines the perfect ingredients to make baking simple for kids, but most importantly, delicious.

In the series premiere, "Madhatter's Tea Party": Not only do Holly and Mimi make an out of this world spread fit for the Madhatter's tea party, they also have the dance moves to boot.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan 2

Set in South Jamaica, Queens, in 1991, Raising Kanan is a prequel to the original Power franchise.

It is a sprawling family drama that revolves around the coming of age of Kanan Stark; Ghost and Tommy's mentor, partner and adversary, who ultimately dies in a hail of gunfire in the eighth episode of Power's penultimate season.

When we catch up with Kanan here, he is the 15-year-old only child of Raquel "Raq" Thomas, a cocaine distributor with an emerging network of dealers across the city.

Much like the original Power, Raising Kanan explores themes of identity, violence and legacy, but it is also a deep dive into the very pathology of family; the unique, complicated and fraught dynamic between parent and child, mother and father, brother and sister.

In an increasingly fractious world, family often feels like the only refuge from all the divisiveness and discord and yet, at the same time, we often discover that it is those closest to us who betray us and our values most.

As we enter Season 2, Raquel 'Raq' Thomas has gained control over the city's drug trade, but her son is slipping away.

Kanan Stark returns to Queens uncertain of his future with the family business, and because of Detective Howard's lingering secret, he's even more uncertain of his past.

Kanan searches for the truth while Raq boldly expands the business into hostile Mafia territory.

Lou-Lou has other plans that revolve around his emerging record label, but Raq isn't about to let his side hustle get in the way of her expansion.

Although Marvin remains Raq's loyal soldier, he struggles to earn Jukebox's forgiveness and become the father she deserves.

The ties that bind this family are becoming undone, but Raq will stop at nothing to hold them together.

In the Season 2 premiere, "The More Things Change": Kanan returns to Queens where Raq is trying to mend the many fractures in the Thomas family.

As Raq expands her empire, Kanan doubts his future in the drug game.

Meanwhile, Detective Howard is released from the hospital.

Signs of a Psychopath 3

Psychopaths live among us. They can be friends, family members, coworkers, or even lovers.

Trying as they may to impersonate normal humans, there are always signs that reveal their true nature: calculating, narcissistic - and sometimes, murderous.

In the Season 3 premiere, "I Guess My Life is Over Now": A mother calls 911 to report her 32-year-old delinquent son is threatening her.

Five days later, she is found brutally murdered in her home - and he becomes the one and only suspect.

When he turns himself in, his pragmatic retelling of the slaying isn't just cold-hearted... it's psychopathic.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "I Was in a Zone": A crash on a North Dakota highway leaves one passenger dead, but the van's driver unscathed.

When investigators see that the passenger has deep stab wounds, they know there was foul play.

Detectives interrogate the driver and quickly realise they are dealing with a violent psychopath who has killed before.

MasterChef USA 9

In a MasterChef kitchen first, the judges will do battle when Season 9 of MasterChef premieres.

For the first time ever, the judges - host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, chef Aarón Sánchez and restaurateur Joe Bastianich - will choose their favourite home cooks and mentor them throughout the competition.

In the season premiere: The nation's best home cooks travel to Los Angeles to compete for a spot in the Top 24.

That's when the twist kicks in: the judges each will have eight aprons to hand out to the home cooks whom they deem worthy - and they will then mentor those contestants throughout the competition.

However, as in all prior seasons, only one home cook will claim the MasterChef title and the $250,000 grand prize.
