9 Crime & mystery shows to stream which will keep you busy for a few months!

In Movies en TV deur griffinRek jou bek

Our top 10 weekly selection of DSTV Now | Showmax | YouTube | Netflix | Amazon Prime

Last week we had squiz at a list of romantic movies to stream, so I decided to check out some crime and mystery vaabz for this weekend. The conclusion? I think comedies, musicals, rom-coms and straight up action series are perhaps more formulaic and easier to pull off than crime & mystery? We can probably digest it easier with a lower attention span and that’s why we can take more of it at a time. Then again, I’ve binged the shit out most of these shows below. Again, I’ve organised them from lowest to highest rating again but the good news is that the lowest rating clocks in at 7, which is really not kak.

If you add up all the seasons of the shows, you get more than 40 seasons. That’s well over 400 episodes or roughly a thousand days of streaming. You’ll be good for three locdkowns!

Shades of Blue
A New York police officer and single mother, is forced to work in the F.B.I.’s anti-corruption task force while dealing with her own financial problems. It features J-Lo in the role of  corrupt detective, Harlee Santos who becomes a reluctant informant for the FBI’s anti-corruption task force.
OK, J-Lo, you’re at a rating of 7, so I will definitely give this a kyk! Also, 7 is the absolute lowest rating for today’s list, so we can only go up from here. We’re starting off really good!

The Outsider
This definitely gets the absolute to priority on my list!  (right after Little Fires Everywhere, because I already promised the wife we’re klapping this series first).  Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Stephen King, this horror crime miniseries focuses on the investigation of an unspeakable crime that’s been committed: the gruesome murder of a young boy.
Rated at 7.9, this is a must see!

Ray Donovan
Goeie fok! I need to get on this case again. I think I dropped off by season 3 because I got distracted by so many other good shows which got released at the same time. For those who still don’t know – Ray Donovan is a professional fixer for the rich and famous be it a superstar, politician or high-profile businessman.  No matter the problem, they turn to Ray to make it disappear. He us usually ready with his gun, a poesklap or two or whatever measures he deems necessary.
Rated at a kakgevaarlike 8.3!

Prison Break
You ask any woman who Wentworth Miller is and they will tell you that he is the Prison Break guy. Try it for yourself.
Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent dude, is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, Michael Scofield, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside. How? He tattooed plans and cues of the entire fokken tronk all over his body. If this show has done anything for Robert Knepper who plays the role of Theodore ‘T-Bag’ Bagwell, it has made people like myself hate his absolutely every character that he has played in after Prison Break because jirre, T Bag is ‘n fokken piece of shit!
A well deserved, solid 8.3!

Banshee
Lucas Hood is an ex-con and master thief who assumes the identity of a murdered sheriff in the little quiet Amish town of Banshee, Pennsylvania. The former sheriff was a bit of a corrupt doos, so Lucas just continues his criminal activities but his past seems to haunt him by those he betrayed years earlier. As the new sheriff he imposes his own brand of justice where violence seems to be the norm. The levels of violence is just as abound in this series as it is in Game Of Thrones but you’ll get so see roughly 48% more tits and pomping.
Watch all four seasons. Totally worth it at a rating of 8.4!

Sons of Anarchy
A biker struggles to balance being a father and being involved in an outlaw motorcycle club. But wait, there’s more! The lines between legal and illegal are easily blurred. Members of a California motorcycle club called the Sons of Anarchy take the law into their own hands as they fight to protect their hometown. There are also a fuckload of man-hugs and leather jackets. If you love bikes, you’re gonna smaak this one, boet!
Rated 8.6!

True Detective
A seasonal anthology series in which police investigations unearth the personal and professional secrets of those involved, both within and outside the law. The grisly murder scenes and disturbing plot lines of True Detective are absolutely not for the faint-hearted.
Clocking in a rating of 9.0, you have three seasons to kak your pants with!

The Sopranos
This is one of the all time high rating TV shows ever at 9.2 and I highly recommend this if you haven’t seen it yet: New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano deals with personal and professional issues in his home and business life that affect his mental state, leading him to seek professional psychiatric counseling. Oh, and if you did watch it 21 years ago when it first came out, don’t you think it is time to re-watch it?

The Wire
This was released more or less around the same time as The Sopranos, in fact it was released 3 years later in 2002. Step into the streets of the Baltimore drug scene, where gritty cops and clever dealers square off in this brilliant crime thriller where right and wrong is never black or white.
At a rating of 9.3, it narrowly it beats The Sopranos by a testicle hair. In fact, it ranks at number six of all time series With The Sopranos at number 14!

Our randomized trailer pick of the week

Each week we take a number from 1 to 10 from our list of suggestions and put it through a randomizer to choose a trailer to show you. This week it landed on our number 5 spot, Seven reasons to watch Killing Eve” 

Based on the novels by Luke Jennings and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve centers on two distinctly different women. Eve (Sandra Oh), is a bored, whip-smart MI5 security officer whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Jodie Comer), a mercurial, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. When Eve is tasked with catching Vilanelle it sets into motion a cat and mouse game that leaves all involved wondering who is chasing whom. It’s exhilarating, exciting, action-packed and sexy, a must-watch for fans of Blacklist, Homeland and Criminal Minds.

Gaan reinig jouself solank vir die Goue Graal…

In Kief musiek deur Rolbees1 Eiertjies

Moderne musiek.

So voorspelbaar soos die All Lives Matter vs Black Lives Matter-debat op sosiale media. In ons gerepte moedertaal, daarby. Julle ken die nuwe, nuwe autotuned liedjies met tos lirieke en diepkeeldeuntjies. Van braai, brandewyn en bokkies in hulle kort flappende rokkies wat net rugbyhelde wil zaber. Dis in jou verdrietige TV shows en op jou huis-toe-ry radio. Dis orals.

Ons kan beter doen, my fok!
Ons soek meer karakters met ontoereikende siele. Dames, sonder perfeksie waar mans geen kat se kans het nie, al probeer hulle hoe hard ook al. Hulle bekorende stories moet slinks in ons ore ontrafel.

Nou, meer as ooit, is liedjieskrywers broodnodig. Hulle wat jou opraap en gaan aflaai in ‘n ander wêreld. Dié wat jou ontvoer uit jou comfort zone en gevangenis hou daar waar jy gaan sidder en beef van vrees. Of in ‘n hartseer waan net sit en snik en sanik terwyl jy die woorde oor en oor prewel.

En toe stop iemand ons ‘n verwaarlose koevert in die kloue.

Dis iets wat ons uit die bloute ontvang het en dit was ‘n aangename verrassing om iets heeltemal anders vanuit ‘n nuwe oord wat ook ‘n ou oord is, te ontvang. En dan raak jy half skuins befok omdat meer mense nie sulke moeite met kuns doen nie. En jy raak dan nôg meer befok vir die rokkie-bokkie-holstokkie-my-bakkie-is-‘n-trokkie-konte.

Enter Frik en Dot. Of die ballade daarvan. So iets.

As jy wil weet wie Frik en Dot is, moet jy eers bietjie jou broek vashou, want Neil Joseph William Sandilands (ja, die Afrikaanse Suid-Afrikaanse Hollywood-man)  en sy gruwelooslike musiekbende gaan Die Goue Graal eers die tiende Julie voor jou laat neerdaal. Dis DV volgende Vrydag, gemeente en mede-heidene.
Wat is die Goue Graal? Dis ‘n ongenaakbare Moordernaarskaroo wat ‘n fok voel. Dis ‘n tipe mistieke boer. Dis so paar duisend perde onder die enjinkap. Dis Tarentino in Afrikaans. Dis Bony & Clyde wat plattlandse poesklappe uitdeel. Dis daai hoerviool in elke western fliek se saloon. Dis vuil rondnaaikitaar.

Dis net mooi…

Ons kan jou meer vertel, maar dan gaan ons, met voorbedagte rade, moet saamsweer en mekaar eers weer raakloop in die hel met ‘n warm whiskey.

So tel maar eerder vir nou net die dae in spanning af…
*aanhoudende fokken bose lag*

Maak “Little Fires Everywhere” met Reese Witherspoon en Kerry Washington jou kykgenot vir die naweek!

In Movies en TV deur griffinRek jou bek

Little Fires Everywhere is die pennevrug van Amerikaanse skrywer, Celeste Ng, wat met haar heel eerste boek in 2014, die Amazon Book Of The Year gewen het (Everything I Never Told You). Sy het so paar award-winning short stories ook neergepen maar gaar tweede vollengte novel en best seller, Little Fires Everywhere, het in 2017 verskyn en is in ‘n TV-reeks omskep wat nogal ‘n pretty big deal is. Hoedefok druk mens so baie sukses in minder as een dekade? By the way, as jy struggle met die woord “pennevrug” beteken dit jy lees nie regtig baie nie. Dis OK, dis hoekom movies en TV-reeks van boeke af kom, spesiaal van mense wat nie like van lees nie. Jy weet… movies en Tv shows kom van… boeke af… right?

Check net hierdie befokte intro:

Little Fires Everywhere volg die verweefde en verwarrende lot van van twee uiteenlopende gesinne – die picture perfect (en op die oog af) sorgvrye lewe van die Richardson-familie en die enigmatiese African-American ma-en-dogter-span, die Warrens. Die storie delf diep in temas soos die gewigtigheid van geheime binne jouself ronddra, die worsteling met self-identiteit asook ouerskap maar meer spesifiek moerderskap. Natuurlik die hele single parent/absent father vibe ook. In die kern egter, lê die onwrikbare geloof dat mens alle rampe kan voorkom deur bloot die reëls te volg asof dit die tien gebooie is. Dis juis hoe fokops gebore word. Thoughts en prayers gaan daai kak nie fix nie, my bra.

Hierdie show is ‘n aangrypende limited dramareeks wat Reese Witherspoon en Kerry Washington direk teenoor mekaar in die hoofrolle plaas en net soos met Big Little Lies, is Reese fokken fantasties in hierdie rol. Maar… jy gaan haar nie vir ‘n fok like nie. Of altans, jy gaan nie ooghare hê vir haar karakter, Elena Richardson nie, want dis die tipe force of nature wat Reese in haar acting is. Haar karakter, Elena is ‘n fokken giftige vrou en jy gaan haar beslis verafsku, reeds baie vroeg in die storielyn in. Fokol simpatie hierdie kant nie. In fact, as mens die storielyn slegs vanuit die karakter van Elena Richarson se oogpunt sou beskou, kon die show se naam net sowel Little Karens Everywhere gewees het. Ek meen jirre, selfs wanneer haar man probeer romanties taak met haar, tune sy hom dat dit nog nie Saterdag is nie, waarop se response is dat dit totally cool is om op enige ander dag van die week ook te naai. Die stomende gulpvrugpolka is nie uitsluitlik vir Saterdae beskore nie! Haar antwoord? Fok jou, buddy, geslagsomgang is meer pret wanneer dit haarfyn beplan is. Fooooook!! Ek kan nie met haar nie. Die dynamics met haar kids is ook effens fucked maar ek wil nie te veel weg gee nie. Ons almal het probably ‘n tjommie met so ma gehad toe ons kinders was. Jammer om te hoor as dit dalk jou ma was…
Aan die ander kant van die  storie, het ons vir Kerry Washington wat ook fenonimaal was in die hoofrol van die thriller reeks, Scandal asook movies soos Save The Last Dance en veral Django Unhcained waarvoor sy ‘n BET Award gewen het vir Best Actress.  Nou kyk, kom ons kry solank die complaints uit die pad uit oor haar karakter, Mia Warren, want jy gaan altyd huilerige mense kry. Mia is ‘n vrou wat meestal wroeg. Wroeg beteken basies dat jou gesig lyk asof jy kak ruik terwyl jy uie skil. So yes, Kerry Washington se gesig gaan meestal huilerig lyk soos die mense wat daaroor complain. It are called acting en jy moet die karakter se verlede in ag neem en dan sal sy verstaan hoekom die reeks ‘n moerse goeie rating het. Mia se karakter is met ‘n doel heavy melancholies want dit kom vanuit ‘n plek en ‘n lewe van pyn, hartseer en disconnect. Dis hoe Celeste Ng die boek geskryf het en dis hoe Kerry haar werk as actress doen. In fact, hier is vir jou nog waardevolle agtergrondsinliging: in die boek was daar geen direke verwysing na ras vir Mia se karakter nie want Celeste Ng het gevoel dat sy nie namens ‘n ander ras kon praat nie. Sy was baie versigting en dis actually baie slim gedoen. Om Kerry Washington te quote:

When I met Celeste Ng, the writer, for the first time, she actually admitted to me that she had always thought of Mia as a woman of color, and that she had been drawn to the idea of writing Mia as a black woman. But she didn’t feel like she had the authoritative voice to do that in the right way. And so she was kind of vague about her race in the novel. So it was exciting that we were in step with Celeste in diving into the places where she wanted to to grow out the book in ways that already lived in her.

Die storielyn van elkeen van die jonger rolverdelings is ook kragtig en hulle vertolk hulle rolle met oortuiging om die verhaal geloofwaardig oor te dra.  Ek wil nou nie hamer op Big Little Lies, net omdat Reese daarin was nie, maar Little Fires Everywhere is insgegelyks ‘n befokte reeks om te kyk vanweë die limted series formaat. Dit het ‘n begin en ‘n einde en jy kan gewoonlik tot jou eie gevolgetrekkings kom. Daar is 8 episodes van ‘n uur lank elk, min of meer, so jy kan hierdie outjie sommer oor die naweek binge. Dis perfek vir mense wat dalk nie DStv het nie, maar wel tot Showmax subscribe, want die DStv subscribers moes ‘n week lank wag vir episodes, hot van Amerika af toe die reeks aanvanklik vrygestel is wêreldwyd.

Soms is die wag lekker en soms wen die binge. Beide het hulle voordele. Ek is ‘n fan van beide.

Hierdie naweek, binge ek egter laat die kak wit sit:

Die vinnigste en maklikste manier om befokte shows op te spoor vir jou naweek se kykgenot is om na die “featured” section op Showmax te gaan. 

Jy kan aansluit by Showmax se 14-dae free trial as jy nog nie het nie – daar is kakbaie ander movies, reekse en doccies ook om deur te werk! Sterkte met hierdie kak COVID19 storie, maar ons sal hom fokken saam deurdruk!
