Gen V

Set in the diabolical world of The Boys, Gen V expands the universe to Godolkin University, the prestigious superhero-only college where students train to be the next generation of heroes — preferably with lucrative endorsements.

You know what happens when supes go bad, but not all superheroes start out corrupt.

Beyond the typical college chaos of finding oneself and partying, these kids are facing explosive situations... literally.

As the students vie for popularity and good grades, it's clear that the stakes are much higher when super powers are involved.

When the group of young supes discover that something bigger and sinister is going on at school, they're put to the test: Will they be the heroes or the villains of their stories?


Channel: M-Net (DStv 101)
TX Time: 22h00
Genre: Drama


Moonshine is an epic tale of lust, legacy and lobster, set against the backdrop of financial hardship, small town intrigue and a long-buried secret that threatens to annihilate the Finley-Cullens once and for all.

Corrine Koslo and Peter MacNeill play Bea and Ken Finley-Cullen, the heads of the family and owners of The Moonshine, their own little slice of paradise that is starting to become a nightmare — if only they could decide which of their flawed brood is fit to take over the business.

Jennifer Finnigan plays Lidia, an architect and the eldest sibling who wants to redevelop and exploit the valuable coastal property, giving her an opportunity to shine and overcome past disappointments.

Anastasia Phillips plays her often-overlooked younger sister Rhian, who sees The Moonshine as her own chance to shine.

Other family members include Lidia's sister Nora, the sexy local DJ, who knows all the family secrets; Sammy, Lidia's musically-gifted adopted brother who holds secrets of his own; and aging party boy Ryan, Rhian's twin, who is running his own (illegal) business out of the resort.

In the series premiere, "Standby Out of Newark": When Lidia, the eldest of the dysfunctional Finley-Cullen clan, returns home from New York for her aunt's funeral, her whole life is torn down in a weekend.

Her marriage implodes, her kids turn on her, and a surprise inheritance kicks off a family feud with her rival sister.

There's only one rational move - leave. Instead, Lidia doubles down.

She's going to stay and she's going to make her new life work (or die trying).

Your Home Made Perfect 4

Imagine stepping inside your home, but suddenly it is transformed beyond your wildest dreams, without ever opening a can of paint or lifting a single brick.

Angela Scanlon presents a property makeover series like no other, using cutting-edge virtual reality and visual effects enable people to see what the future of their home could look like, before building it in reality.

Never have plans come to life like this: people can instantly explore a stunning transformation of their bedroom, walk around an incredible double-height kitchen or see how adding a gigantic picture window will turn a dingy lounge into a showstopping sitting room.

In each episode, a family is presented with two radically different designs by two extraordinary architects.

Which ambitious renovation will they choose to become their perfect home?

In the Season 4 premiere, "Yesim and Hasan": Using virtual reality, two top architects compete to remodel a family home in Enfield.

Yes and Has bought their 1920s semi in Enfield four years ago, wanting a family home to raise their two children.

Despite a major renovation, they haven't managed to inject their personality into their home and are struggling with the disconnected layout.

Taking on the challenge of redesigning this house are top architects Will Foster and Julian McIntosh.

After investigating the problems, Julian thinks the key is to sort out the isolated kitchen, but Will is keen to dig deeper into the couple's style.

Will they go for Julian's minimalist design or Will's pyramid ceiling?
