Catch up with Euphoria while you wait for Funny Woman and Fargo


HERE are the April highlights for M-Net 101. I think I’m bored with The Goldbergs now so it can happily end with its 10th and final season. So Help Me Todd suffered from a break in season one and I never did get back into it. The Winter King is on my list, I’ve seen Funny Woman which is all right (and Euphoria), but the one I’m most excited about is the new season of Fargo. As for AGT, I cannot look at Simon Cowell’s face anymore.

  • America’s Got Talent: Fantasy Team, Mondays to Fridays at 6pm

The draft continues as judges Simon, Heidi, Howie, and Mel B each build a roster of their favourite acts and guide them throughout as they hope to be crowned the champion.

  • The Winter King, Mondays at 10pm

The series acts as a retelling of the Arthurian legends and takes place in Post-Roman Dark Age Britain, where the warlord Arthur Pendragon (Iain De Caestecker) has been banished while Saxons invade and a child-king sits unprotected on the throne.

  • So Help Me Todd season two, Wednesdays at 9pm

Todd (Skylar Astin) has good instincts as a private investigator, but lacks direction and is the black sheep of his family. After his strong-willed mother, Margaret (Marcia Gay Harden), negotiated dropping criminal charges against Todd two years previously, he reluctantly agrees to work at her law firm as an in-house investigator. Margaret believes in strictly adhering to the law, which is at complete odds with Todd’s tendency to bend the law to navigate sticky situation

  • Euphoria, Wednesdays at 10pm

An ensemble cast stars in this award-winning HBO drama: A vivid and emotive exploration of the lives of a group of high school students, as they navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love, and friendship. Starring Zendaya.

  • The Goldbergs season 10, Saturdays at 6pm, double episodes

It’s a full Goldberg house with everyone living back at home with pregnant Erica (Hayley Orrantia) in the final season. “The series, which has weathered the departures of star Jeff Garlin following multiple HR complaints, is produced by Sony Pictures Television. ABC’s lack of ownership on the sitcom, paired with declining linear ratings and pricey licensing fees for an aging series, made an 11th season increasingly unlikely,” said The Hollywood Reporter.

  • The Voice (US), season 25, Tuesdays from April 23 at 6pm

Contestants are selected through public auditions and trained by a panel of four coaches who guide and critique their performances to discover America’s next great voice. In addition to the returning coaches Reba McEntire, John Legend and Chance the Rapper, the season introduces Dan + Shay as the first duo judges on the show. Renowned for their contributions to the music industry since 2013, Dan and Shay bring a fresh perspective to the coaching panel.

  • Funny Woman, Tuesdays from April 23 at 10pm

It’s the height of the 1960s and Barbara Parker has just been crowned Miss Blackpool. She sets off for London on a mission to reinvent herself and find her voice in the male-dominated world of the sitcom industry. Starring Gemma Arterton and Rupert Everett.

  • Fargo: The Tragedy of the Commons, season five, Wednesdays from April 25 at 9pm

As an anthology, each Fargo season possesses its own self-contained narrative, following a disparate set of characters in various settings and eras, albeit in a shared universe. This is, however, the first season of the series to not have any remote connection to either a previous season or to the film, though there are still numerous references to both the film and previous seasons. It is set in Minnesota and North Dakota in the autumn of 2019. It stars Juno Temple (Ted Lasso) as Dorothy “Dot” Lyon, a seemingly typical Midwestern housewife whose mysterious past comes back to haunt her after she inadvertently lands herself in hot water with the authorities. Jon Hamm (The Morning Show) stars as North Dakota Sheriff Roy Tillman, who has been searching for Dot for over a decade.

  • A Carte Blanche Documentary: 30 Years of Democracy, Sunday April 28 at 7pm

M-Net celebrates Freedom Day with the broadcast of a 90-minute Carte Blanche special, looking back at three decades of democracy in South Africa. 30 Years of Democracy tells the story of South Africa and her people, from the moment democracy was attained, reflecting on the journey so far and imagining what the perfect destination looks like.
