Hello again for this second ever Stan weekly roundup for 2020, as I write this through another day of 'The Commons' style dystopian smoke haze.


Which then brings us to Utopia, which is the kind of ironic title you would expect from a Working Dog comedy series. Set in a newly set up government department in charge of handling infrastructure projects, it has the exact type and volume of cringe and crazy-but-sadly-true politics you'd expect from something like this. You can stream the first 3 seasons of this Australian classic right now.

Movies, Documentaries:

We have a strange collection of new movie additions this week, and I've picked out the "best" ones for you.

If you're looking for a good revenge action drama, then check out Michael Caine in Harry Brown - a satisfying if you like this sort of film.

For those not boycotting Woody Allen, Radio Days should be on your must-watch list, a homage to the golden age of radio. Less controversial, although not at the time the book or the film was released, is David Lean's A Passage To India, a classic from '80s cinema.

Definitely not a classic is The Butterfly Effect 3: Revelations, although it does achieve the rare trick of being better than its predecessor, still managing to fall into the cliche of being much worse than the original.

Two documentary recommendations this week. If you love movies, then you will know and love Roger Ebert, and Life Itself looks at the life and work of the famous film critic. New episodes of Orangutan Jungle School are also available if you need some animal cuteness and hear-warming-ness.
