True Detective is back
You might have heard about Mzansi Magic’s new show, Date My Family, after Twitter got into a tizz over recent contestant Stanley Ramoboleng.
The show follows a bachelor or bachelorette as he/she visits three families for a meal in a bid to find the most compatible mate.
Ramoboleng, a small-time actor, True Detective M-Net Edge (DStv channel 102) Thursday, 9pm Fans of True Detective, a gritty, often dark, series, will be happy to know season two is about to hit the small screen.
There’s an all-new cast. Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell will replace Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as co-leads, and hurled such insults as “Judging by the way the family looks, I am worried about what the daughter looks like” and told the sister of his potential love interest: “You call yourself a woman? Is this how you cook?” Judging from the furore the show has caused, this is one to watch. Like Mzansi Magic’s other success, My Perfect Wedding, it uses a great formula for compelling reality TV. – Grethe Koen Rachel McAdams will join as a fellow detective.
We hope this season will pose the same existential questions as season one and delve into the darkness of the human heart. It managed to dwell in our minds long after the credits on the final episode had rolled.
