Expand your viewing horizons with the best new series this week

A-lister Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is poised to take over Hollywood and you won’t hear a single complaint from us! This Friday, M-Net (DStv channel 101) will air the second episode of the megastar’s hilarious and heart-warming new sitcom, all about what life was like growing up in a family of pre-wrestlers in the 80s and 90s, and how it set him off on the road to stardom. Earning an impressive approval rating of 88% on Rotten Tomatoes since its US premiere last month, Young Rock manages to be a poignant tribute to family, hard work and also delivers all the fun and absurdity of hanging out with pro-wrestlers in the 80s.

The Korean hit channel tVN (DStv channel 134) continues to bring the best in K-drama, love and laughter to DTsv, and with not one but three new hit shows starting this week, fans will not be disappointed. Tale of the Nine Tailed is a fantasy drama about the famed nine-tailed fox spirit roaming the earth in human form. When a human appears, resembling his long-dead love, he finds himself undeniably drawn to her.

Revolutionary Love is a tender romantic dramedy loaded with unpredictable plot twists, and definitely worth adding to your binge list. Byun Hyuk (meaning “revolution” in Korean) is a carefree rich kid who suddenly finds himself kicked out of the family home and struggling to make ends meet on his own. Meeting a fascinating woman juggling three jobs shows him what it takes to not only forge his own future, but how to love as well.

Rounding up the K-drama content, Watcher is a gripping police drama about three friends banding together to solve 15 year-old unsolved murder, only to find themselves trapped in web of lies and corruption within their very own police force.

Good news for Walker fans! The popular reboot is not only back from its midseason break, but the CW Network has also announce that it has ordered more episodes for fans to sink their teeth into. The show debuted as the CW’s most watched series premiere in 5 years, proving that Walker is a series to be reckoned with.
