Welcome to the first article in this series for 2022, where we take a look at what has been happening on Stan this past week. Plenty, is the answer to that question.


Jamie Dornan stars in Stan's original mini-series The Tourist, a series about lost memories in the unforgiving Australian outback. A steady stream of good reviews have been coming in about this series, so make sure you check it out.

A little bit late for Christmas (and maybe a year too late in general), but the 2020 "Doctor Who" Christmas Special Revolution of the Daleks has just been added.

There are also new seasons of The Good Fight (season 5) and Perfect Places (season 3).

Movies, Documentaries:

Aussie sci-fi is a bit of a rare beast these days, and so when you have one as good as Upgrade, you should definitely watch it right away.

And this one is one of my all-time favourites, and no doubt, I'll watch Interstellar again now that it has just arrived (back) on Stan.

If you know nothing about Tommy Wiseau and the infamous "The Room" (check YouTube), then maybe you won't get the most out of The Disaster Artist. But it's still a decent film in its own right.

I remember watching What Maisie Knew a couple of years back and found it generally enjoyable. The conclusion I had, and this was before I became a parent, was that some people aren't just cut out to be parents. Poor Maisie, but you just gotta love Alexander Skarsgård.

Two more Louis Theroux docos in the form of Mothers on the Edge, Life on the Edge. I was perhaps a bit too young to appreciate the whole Biggie/Tupac thing, so I should probably check out Biggie: The Life Of Notorious B.I.G. just so I can keep myself within the cultural loop. O.J. Simpson's conviction for armed robbery, if it had been a plot on a fictional TV series based on his life, would seem like a "jump the shark" moment, so it's quite amazing that it's true, the story of which is told in O.J.: Guilty in Vegas.
