welcome

It’s been two long years since Neale Whitaker and Andrew Winter last graced the pages of FOXTEL magazine together to promote a new season of Love It Or List It Australia and, boy, have we missed them! One of the many casualties of unforeseen border closures and filming restrictions due to the global pandemic, this season has taken much longer to produce than those that preceded it. However, as they posed up a storm for our cover and cover story – which you can read from page 14 – the affable co-hosts were quick to reassure us that the wait has been worth it, with this season one of their best yet. Bring it on! Also this month, we celebrate the launch of new documentary destination FOX DOCOS, with must-see viewing featuring Barack…

with imaginary friends like these…

DOOM PATROL (s3) Starts EXPRESS September 23, Thursdays at 8.30pm and watch On Demand FOX8 [108] Nothing is ever what it seems in the mind-bending world of DC series Doom Patrol, but the second season finale left no doubt about the might of the menacing Candlemaker. Facing their metaphorical – and, in one case, literal – demons, our heroes must now find the strength to save themselves and reality itself. The biggest showdown looms between Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), the daughter of imperilled mad scientist Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton), and the Candlemaker (voiced by Lex Lang). As a child, she considered her scary, imaginary friend a protector, but now that it’s been unleashed in the physical world, Dorothy has to grow up quickly and do battle using equally mature powers. For Elasti-Woman/Rita (April Bowlby), Robotman/Cliff…

role call with joe manganiello

Wolfman, the guy with the abs, Mr Sofía Vergara… Actor Joe Manganiello has been described as many things that reference his superficial appeal. But beneath the chiselled veneer is a self-confessed nerd whose star-studded Dungeons & Dragons games are a hot ticket in Hollywood. With his new film Archenemy – a subversive take on the superhero genre – coming to FOXTEL this month, we list the projects (all available On Demand) that prove Manganiello is much more than just a pretty face. ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE (2021) Most of the actor’s scenes as mercenary Deathstroke were cut when director Zack Snyder left his unfinished blockbuster in the hands of Joss Whedon. Manganiello’s involvement was also meant to launch him into further DC films, including his own, but the consolation was Snyder’s extended cut…
