For footy fans, August is a time of trepidation. Emotions run high as we head into finals. Alongside all that drama, our cover stars Jonathan Brown and Matty Johns bring the laughs while dissecting their codes – AFL and NRL, respectively – as the season unfolds. We also talk to commentators Neroli Meadows and Hannah Hollis to get their take on the action. Foxtel favourite Damon Herriman, currently on screens in Lambs of God, chats about his incredible career – most recently working with Quentin Tarantino in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. And this month we shine a spotlight on the maverick director, with a line-up of his greatest films to revisit. With the return of Ballers, Gogglebox Australia and family epic Succession, plus new HBO series The Righteous Gemstones and…

SNEAK PEEK FAMILY FIRST Relationships will be at the centre of the action when Outlander returns Following last season’s deadly cliffhanger, in which Jamie found himself in the unenviable situation of being forced to turn against one of his nearest and dearest, the upcoming fifth outing of time-bending series Outlander will have a strong focus on family. “Who is family? How do you keep them together? How do you protect them? What makes a family? How do you deal with your family?” executive producer Toni Graphia previews of the central theme. Having received the order to locate and kill his godfather, Murtagh Fraser (Duncan Lacroix), our strapping hero Jamie (Sam Heughan, pictured with Caitriona Balfe as Claire) is left with little choice but to comply. Meanwhile, relations with his son-in-law Roger (Richard Rankin) remain tense,…

in my opinion

Women’s sport is big business Sky News newcomer and sports fanatic Julie Snook examines the huge strides being made in the industry These days, sport is such a big business; it’s no longer just about the result. It’s a huge industry and I think we’re seeing that with sponsorships, endorsements. Obviously, with women’s sport, we’re seeing that as well at the elite level. There’s still a long way to go – a very long way to go – but women’s elite sport is certainly on the rise. Ash Barty is absolutely killing it. She’s world number one [in tennis] and she’s only 23. I find that terrifying but amazing! You have Steph Gilmore, who’s number one in surfing, and [fellow surfer] Sally Fitzgibbons. You have the women’s cricket teams, the Matildas, the Hockeyroos, Diamonds,…

Graeme Blundell The actor, writer, director, producer, biographer and SCREEN co-host’s passion for TV is second to none, his schedule jam-packed with gritty HBO offerings My current Foxtel TV obsession is… Warrior – it’s brilliant! It’s one of the best things I’ve seen in years. This idea of the graphic novel [style] brought to television is just terrific. And Big Little Lies, of course. I absolutely love it. The second season is as good as the first. My dream evening of television would include… Well, most days I have a dream day of television, so that’s a hard one! Probably a new season of True Detective or anything sociologically serious by David Simon (The Wire). My favourite kind of TV program is… I like the kind of intense stuff – things that have instant…

wheels of fortune

Australia as a nation can comfortably be described as sports mad. From cricket to football in all its codes, Supercars to tennis, the pursuit of glory has us glued to our screens – when we’re not screaming our lungs out while attending a live event. The rivalries run deep – but there’s none of that on display in a Melbourne studio when we team up with NRL legend Matty Johns and AFL stalwart Jonathan Brown for our photo shoot. While the pair has met around the traps, they’ve never spent a lot of time together, yet their camaraderie is instant. As they talk nonstop – mainly sport-related but also other issues, including how much screentime is okay for children – the laughs keep coming. We’re on a strict deadline – mainly because Browny’s…
