Love Me shows on DStv Compact Plus

I Love That For You Season 1

Small town nobody Joanna Gold (Vanessa Bayer) wants nothing more in life than to host a TV show on one of America’s Home Shopping networks, SVN. After she fluffs her audition, she plays on the producers’ and her co-stars’ sympathies by claiming that she has cancer. Just like that, she’s on TV, where her bumbling charm soon has viewers stampeding in, and long-time SVN host Jackie Stilton (Molly Shannon) steps up to mentor Joanna, despite her evil co-worker Beth Ann’s (Ayden Mayeri) eye rolling contempt.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 2

This Power drama series prequel is set in the 1990s and follows the rise of Ghost’s great rival, Kanan Stark. At the end of Season 1, Kanan had to flee his home after shooting a police officer, his biological father Detective Howard, and leaving him for dead. Now Kanan’s mom Raq is caught up in an endless struggle to hold and expand control of her drug empire on the streets of Queens, New York. And when Howard claims to have amnesia, Raq brings Kanan back home and shows him the ropes of controlling the business, from the trap houses to the “boardroom”.

Bachelorette The S19 2022
The Bachelorette Season 19

Two Bachelorettes for the price of one? Yes please! Flight instructor Rachel Recchia and her co-runner up from The Bachelor Season 26, ICU nurse Gabby Windey, will be able to compare notes as they meet their 32 suitors, including a guy who’s a “meatball enthusiast”, a set of twins and other assorted dudes and bros who could afford to leave their day jobs for an indeterminate number of weeks. The first episode is, as always, a surreal treat, as it includes a children’s choir singing a song titled "Clayton Sucks", in memory of the Bachelor who rejected them both.

Watch The Bachelorette Season 19 from Thursday. 29 September at 22:00 on 1Magic (DStv Channel 103)

Murdered By Morning Season 1

You never know when it’ll be your last night on Earth! This true crime series examines 10 cases in which exciting parties, ordinary work night shifts, pub crawls and a casino trip end in horror. We see how investigators traced the victim’s steps on that fatal night, to find their killers. Cases include that of young actress Jessie Blodgett, toy shop assistant manager Larry Wells, and of Morna Jean Brennen, whose attacker dismembered her body and left bits of her in bags all over a winter landscape.

Blown Away S2 (12)
Blown Away Season 2

Reality glass-blowing competition is presented by Nick Uhas (creator of science-based YouTube channel Nickipedia) and the prize is a residency at the Corning Museum Of Glass. This season’s challenges range from creating original cartoon characters, to making realistic replicas of household objects like vacuum cleaners, to an epic nature-based challenge that references climate change, which sees them make everything from icebergs to insects in glass. The guest judges include Queer Eye’s design expert Bobby Berk, and Blown Away season 1 winner, Deborah Czeresko.

Alone S9 Polar Bear Island (2)
Alone: Polar Bear Island Season 9

Adventurers can choose just 10 items to take into the wilderness with them. They’re then dropped off in Southern Labrador, Canada, each of them with their own camera. Each must survive totally isolated, no film crew, as they record their experiences. The last person left standing without calling for evacuation wins $500,000 (R8,509,190). This season, aside from the cold, lack of food, water and isolation, they’ll have to be on their guard, because they’re in polar bear territory. Well, they would be if the pack ice had formed in Baffin Bay and the Davis Strait, but it had not at the time this series was filmed.
