Hello daar!

We would like to welcome our English readers to our first regular feature in the language of the Rooinek. Look, us Afrikaans okes don’t speak English to communicate, unless it’s in self-defense. But that doesn’t mean we don’t know how to gooi it. One of the places we learn in? Same place as you: in front of the TV. So while you can brush up on your Afrikaanse by watching 7de Laan reruns, we will be binge-ing on these lekker “televisieprogramme”.

What look you? You look at our lekker list every week, compliments of The Plumlist.

 #10 Arrested Delevopment Season 5
It took five years to get here, but the latest season of this multi-award-winning comedy was worth the wait. There’s plenty of opportunity for chaos, with Lindsay getting behind the US-Mexico border wall, a bizarre “Cinco de Cuatro” celebration night, and a murder mystery (what happened to Lucille 2?) that the Bluths blunder through in typical feudal, narcissistic style. Available until 26 April 2019.

 #9 Silicon Valley S1-5
n the latest season, Erlich the serial investor is out of the picture, but Pied Piper is going stronger than ever (which isn’t saying much). In this riotous new installment of the hit comedy, can Richard keep all those geek egos in line for a change?

 #8 The Voice SA
Fans of the mega-hit talent competition will be able to watch the premiere on the DStv Now app or on YouTube.

 #7 Marie Kondo hates your stuff
Definitely don’t watch Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix if you don’t want to clean your house. Because once you’ve watched it, you’ll want to. You’ll be buying clear plastic boxes, mega rolls of bin bags and calling up your nearest NGO to come and pick up all your junk. (Or, at least, that will be your intention.)

 #6 Eight episodes of The Sopranos to rewatch 20 years on
The HBO series about New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano (played by the late James Gandolfini) ran from 9 January 1999 to 10 June 2007, and, in those eight years, it redefined what television drama could be.

 #5 What is new on Amazon Prime?
After going big in December, Prime Video slows down in January. There are still a few gems to look forward to, including Prime originals like Beautiful Boy (a drama about the relationship between a father and his drug-addicted son), Informer, Four More Shots Please, and Michael Moore’s documentary about the 2016 US presidential election, Fahrenheit 11/9.

The controversies, evidence and witnesses against the R&B singer with a reputation for pedophilia and predatory behaviour have mounted steadily over the years, and yet his star has continued to rise.

 #2 The doomed Fyre Festival
Who is Billy McFarland? Is he a genius? Is he an idiot? Is he a compulsive liar or a person who really believes he is telling the truth, right up until the moment all his best-laid plans fall apart? Is he the greatest scam artist of all time? How does he get people to trust him and his ideas, over and over again, even while he’s out on bail after being arrested for fraud?

 #1. The Girl From St Agnes
Binge all eight episodes of The Girl From St Agnes, Showmax’s critically acclaimed first Original Drama, which Quartz describes as “the kind of story that makes viewers want to click ‘continue watching’ at 3 a.m. and talk about it at work the next day.”
