Watching Gogglebox Australia is like putting on your favourite pair of slippers: comfortable, warm, reliable, like a best friend. Over 11 seasons, the cast of this award-winning program has become as essential to our viewing habits as our beloved couches, making us laugh, but also weep as the power of television takes hold. This month, our Goggleboxers return to bring laughter and hope to our homes once more. We catch up with them from page 8. Elsewhere, superstars Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Aussie Rebel Wilson chat about life in the spotlight, as well as their respective big-screen offerings Jumanji: The Next Level and Cats, airing on Foxtel Movies Premiere. Plus, new series Lovecraft Country will have you thrilled and hiding under the doona all in one sitting, while some of the…

bright star

Don’t be fooled by the latest DC Universe superhero to get her own D show – this pocket-rocket high-school student is just as fearsome as the rest of them! Meet Courtney Whitmore (Bella and the Bulldogs star Brec Bassinger, pictured), who takes up the mantle of teen heroine Stargirl after moving with her family to Nebraska and stumbling upon the late Starman’s (Joel McHale) Cosmic Staff. Courtney may think her stepdad Pat (Luke Wilson) is a drag – especially since he’s the reason they upped sticks and left their home in California for the seemingly sleepy town of Blue Valley – but as Starman’s former sidekick Stripesy, he may just be useful for something after all. “It has so much going on. It truly just gets crazier and crazier,” Bassinger teases of the…

rebel with a cause

One of the most heartwarming storylines to emerge from Wentworth’s eighth season is that of former Top Dog Lou Kelly and her trans boyfriend Reb Keane. Though polar opposites – Lou (Kate Box) is loud, brash and a total risk-taker, while Reb (Zoe Terakes, pictured) is painfully shy, terrified of his own shadow – there’s no denying their love is rock solid. However, for Reb, being a trans man in a women’s prison is daunting and he is facing an uncertain future. Identifying as non-binary themself, Terakes applauds Foxtel for casting Reb appropriately – something they hope to see more of in the future. “Foxtel is casting genderqueer people in genderqueer roles and that’s something not a lot of people are doing,” they explain. “I think it’s really important that we have a role…

tackling it head-on

I returned home to South Australia with my wife Izzy and daughter Immy when the AFL season was postponed. We tried to stay positive through the break and enjoy spending time with each other that we wouldn’t normally have had at this time of the year. But it was great when the hiatus was over and it was exciting to get back to Sydney. We had to self-isolate for 14 days when we returned to South Australia, so we spent that time on my wife’s farm before we went back to our house in Adelaide. I was able to at least do running drills and resistance training, and we had Zoom meetings with teammates on Tuesdays and Fridays. It’s fair to say it was great when training resumed. It didn’t feel normal initially,…

My current TV obsession is… Succession. It’s just another world; it’s a very entertaining program. The other show my wife Fiona and I have been getting into lately On Demand is Love It Or List It Australia, with Neale Whitaker and Andrew Winter – it’s fantastic, it’s just so good. Those guys have such a great dynamic. When I watch TV I must have… my spot on the couch. Sometimes my two girls will climb over me on that spot, but when I kick back and watch something like Game of Thrones or Succession, it’s once they’re in bed. My dream evening of TV would include… My wife’s very picky when it comes to TV shows, so sometimes I’ll find myself watching a series by myself, but one that we both absolutely…
