Lots of returning TV shows, and some interesting movie choices, is the theme of this past week on Stan.


Before we get to the returning TV shows, which is at the core of this week's TV updates, there are two new series in the form of the Horrible Histories TV specials, and the high rated BBC miniseries version of Les Misérables.

Returning to TV after a long hiatus, the second part of Billions is set to wrap up several season 5 storylines (if you still remember what happened in part 1, that is - it's been a while). There is also new seasons of Code 404, A.P. Bio, and New Amsterdam (new episodes weekly).

Movies, Documentaries:

Wonder Woman was one of the few DC extended universe movies to be a huge hit, both at the box office and with critics, and so if somehow you've been living under a rock (and then straight into lockdown without an Internet connection), then this is your chance to watch a pretty great superhero film.

The late and great Chadwick Boseman stars in the historical sports drama 42, while Mike White of "The White Lotus" and acclaimed indie director Richard Linklater join forces in the very funny School Of Rock.

For fans of Asian cinema, Detective Chinatown 3, one of the biggest hits in China when it was released last year, is an interesting specimen of a recent Chinese blockbuster. It probably helps to have watched the first two movies (not available on Stan), but there's nothing I (or Stan) can do about that.


And while the new Animaniacs is a series for kids, I reckon there's something in there for adults too, especially those like myself who grew up on the original series back when it first aired in 1993.
