Let's again take a look at what's been happening in last week on Stan.


I'm a sucker for an interesting sci-fi premise, and the premise of The Crossing, in which refugees from 180 years in the future comes to a small American town to seek asylum, is one that ticks all the boxes for me. Unfortunately, it did not tick all the boxes for everyone, and especially not the executives at ABC Studios, and the show has since been cancelled. Still, you get one complete season including the season finale, which will now be the series finale.

There are also new episodes of South Park, it is still the animated show that people turn to for both gross-out humour and satirical social commentary, in equal measures.

Movies, Documentaries:

The big release of the week is Disney's charming Christopher Robin. Not quite as funny as 'Paddington', but perhaps more endearing and meaningful (especially for the grown-ups among us that have forgotten what it was like to be a kid), it's a film that will tug at the heart-strings.

World movie fans should check out Germany's Toni Erdmann. It tells the story of a father trying to reconnect with his hard-working daughter by posing as her CEO's life coach. Hilarity (and plenty of soul searching) ensues.

Two documentaries are also worth seeing this week. Whitney is a documentary on the too short life of singing superstar Whitney Houston, and Attenborough And The Empire Of The Ants is exactly what you would expect from a nature documentary that invokes the name 'Attenborough' (ie. it's a great documentary).
