The holiday season may be over, but Foxtel is giving you something to smile about with the return of the always entertaining home critics on Gogglebox Australia. There’s plenty to think about, too, with an extensive lineup of compelling documentaries from around the world, including Ancient Rome Month and Impossible Railways. In this issue, we talk to esteemed movie critic Margaret Pomeranz about her remarkable life in the industry – and why her renowned passion for film is stronger than ever. Alyssa Healy had us cheering in our lounge rooms when she took out Player of the Tournament at the Women’s World T20 and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the CommBank ODI series against New Zealand this month. She reflects on growing up in a cricketing dynasty and…

FIRST LOOK TIES THAT BIND Drama The End showcases the light and dark of the euthanasia debate for one family Death isn’t typically the kind of topic that one associates with humour, but when it comes to new Foxtel Original series The End, the two are a match made in heaven. The dark dramedy tackles mortality, suicide and gender-identity struggles head-on, but in a sensitive and, at times, light-hearted way that will really resonate with audiences. Dame Harriet Walter and Frances O’Connor (pictured from near right) star as mother and daughter Edie and Kate – a senior registrar working in palliative care – whose strained relationship and wildly differing views on euthanasia are the central focus of this compelling homegrown series. Though O’Connor considers Australia home, the majority of her acting roles keep her in England,…

a rush of adrenalin

“Towards the tail end of my playing career, I always wanted to learn more. By the time I retired, I was involved in junior and senior coaching, taking basketball tours of Asia; I was really preparing for life as a coach. I was appointed the Sydney Kings’ head coach in 2016. I remember my first game in charge: I didn’t feel overawed, but I did get that rush of nervous energy. I believe that feeling kicks in whether you’re coaching the under-16s or in the NBL. The adrenalin you get never goes away. I always self-evaluated as a player and I find I’m similar as a coach. But the biggest challenge comes from the actual day-to-day reality – dealing with players, personalities and administrators. There’s a lot more that comes with coaching…

My current Foxtel TV obsession is… Game of Thrones. I’m only up to the end of season three, so I have a bit of catching up to do. Whenever I get some downtime, I binge three or four episodes. I’ve always wanted to live in the old medieval times. When I watch TV I must have… a pack of Old Gold chocolate – I suck on it really slowly, ’cause if I have a normal block, I smash it. My dream evening of TV would include… Game of Thrones, followed by a live KFC Big Bash League game, finishing up with Last Week Tonight with John Oliver – a bit of entertainment, live sport and then some comedy. My dream TV-watching companion is… my partner, El [Rowland]. We watch everything together – it’s…

Q: How important are movies to the Foxtel experience? A: Movies are incredibly important – people love to be entertained and movies are the ultimate form of entertainment. Movies provide collaboration, inspiration, diversity, and escapism, and can definitely spark debate! We all have a favourite movie or a moment in time where a movie experience moved us or changed our point of view and the Foxtel movie experience is all about delivering the best movie service possible. It’s all about offering the best new releases to enjoy, but also those favourite movies in any and every genre that just connect us all – I’m talking about films like Avatar, Titanic, Gladiator, The Godfather or Erin Brockovich, as well as fun classics like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Breakfast Club, Pretty Woman…
