ed’s letter

Watching television takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions. One minute, your blood is boiling in frustration when your favourite character is going through a rough time and there is nothing you can do to help them – like Yvonne on Scandal!, who is getting married whether or not she loves her groom (p15). The next, you’re rolling on the floor crying with laughter thanks to comedy shows like Most Ridiculous with hilarious host SuzelleDIY (p38). And there’s also something to send shivers down your spine, like supernatural shows on the sci-fi special (p36). The point is that television is a wonderful way to take your mind off the problems in your life, even if it’s just for 30 minutes a day as you watch your favourite soapie or series.…

movie mania

If you’re finished streaming your favourite dramas, comedies, reality and lifestyle shows on Showmax and you’ve got time on your hands, best you click on the movie button because there’s loads of short- and full-length films on the platform. And a lot of them are local and exclusive. Like… LIYANA (2017) This doccie cuts between scenes from an animated children’s story and live footage of a group of orphans from eSwatini who’re voicing and creating that tale – and sometimes acting out scenes – under the guidance of KZNborn storyteller activist Gcina Mhlophe. The story being told by the children is both adventure and a reflection of their lives. Liyana loses her parents, as the children have lost theirs. And she sets off on a rescue mission (with the family’s bull as a…

sharon seno

When it comes to her PA character Marang on Muvhango (1997-current, see more on p9), the more drama the better, says 25-year-old Sharon Seno. “She isn’t there to make friends. She wants to get ahead in life and she’s going to do it her way,” adds the Botswana-born actress, whose character is now engaged to her businessman boss James (Dingaan Mokebe) despite his crazy ex-wife Moliehi’s (Vatiswa Ndara) interventions over the last few months. But when it comes to her own TV time, sci-fi seems the way to go for Sharon: “I love the supernatural world. If it’s got a sci-fi edge, I’m front and centre glued to the box!” What was the first show you acted out with friends? It wasn’t a show – but when I saw 2001 teen-com…

burning question!

I’ve noticed a lot of shows being advertised on TV like The Twilight Zone on M-Net that don’t air. What’s going on that channels getting it so wrong? – YOLANDA VIA EMAIL It’s going to sound silly in this modern world of technology, but one of the biggest issues is a delay in physical tapes getting to the broadcasters, explains the channel’s publicity team: “When we order and buy a production from overseas, we have delivery dates agreed upon and we try to stick to that. Unfortunately delays do happen and we are forced to move the broadcast out by a month or two.” It’s not just international shows that have broadcasting issues – locally content can struggle too. Season 2 of Afrikaans reality series Bolhuis, which follows private investigator Mike…
