M-Net Edge is bringing you all the bass this month end, just the way you like it: awkward, humiliating and rare moments with a dash of historical drama and some 70s punk, disco and hip-hop.
Girls begins its fifth season on Tuesday 23 February at 01:30, and in primetime on Friday 26 February at 21:00 on M-Net Edge (102). Created by and starring Lena Dunham, this Emmy-winning series is a comic look at the assorted humiliations and rare triumphs of a group of girls in their 20s.
As Season 5 begins, Hannah is, for the moment, putting her writing ambitions aside, continuing to work as a teacher alongside new boyfriend (and refreshingly nice guy) Fran – a relationship which her friends urge her not to screw up. Meanwhile, Marnie micro-manages her upstate wedding to her musical partner Desi, but upon returning from the honeymoon, begins to realise she needs more space, literally and figuratively. Jessa, working towards becoming a therapist, tries to stay on the straight and narrow, while managing a budding relationship. And Shoshanna, who makes a brief return to the US for Marnie’s wedding, is thriving at her new job in Japan, where she flirts with her boss despite her long-distance relationship with Scott back home. Honest and uproarious, with unexpected surprise turns, Girls’ fifth season promises to maintain the series’ place as one of the most talked-about shows on television.
M-Net Edge is also the home of Vikings and Season 4 starts Express From the US on Saturday 20 February at 03:00 and in Prime Time on Thursday 25 February at 20:00.
History’s hit drama series Vikings returns for a gripping fourth season led by Travis Fimmel, star of the upcoming film Warcraft. The network has added four episodes to its initial 16-episode order.
Season 3 culminated with the extraordinary battle in Paris, where Ragnar (Fimmel) seized victory from the jaws of defeat – but still returns to Kattegat dangerously ill. Thoughts of his death galvanise the forces who seek to succeed him as king, including his wife, Queen Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland), and his oldest son, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig). Meanwhile, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) continues power struggles with her calculating, former second in command, Kalf (Ben Robson), Rollo (Clive Standen) betrays his Viking heritage by remaining in Frankia, and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) is seized for his brutal actions to the Christian priest Athelstan.
Vinyl Season 1, directed by Martin Scorsese, has kicked off its 10-episode season and you can watch it Express from the US on Tuesdays at 03:00 or the Prime Time episodes on Thursdays at 21:00.
Imagine an age of rock and roll, when it ruled the airwaves. When punk, disco and hip-hop were on the horizon, and the 1970s was the place to be. M-Net Edge is bringing you that time, with the HBO series Vinyl.
Veteran director and producer Martin Scorsese (The Wolf of Wall Street) and rock star Mick Jagger team up with acclaimed producer and screenwriter Terence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), for an explosive music drama following the sex and drug addled music business in 1970s New York.
Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire, Nurse Jackie) stars as Richie Finestra, a music exec determined to revive his ailing record label. Unstable, unpredictable and armed with a vision, Finestra embarks on an epic hustle through the changing music scene, one that’s quickly becoming as diverse as the era itself.
Olivia Wilde (Rush), Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Ato Essandoh (Elementary, Blue Bloods) and Juno Temple (Atonement) also star. Put on your shades and crop tops, it’s going to be a heck of a ride.
