Per­fect wed­dings? Hmm

CityPress - - Trending -

Our Per­fect Wed­ding Mzansi Magic (DStv chan­nel 161) Sun­day, 7pm #Trend­ing has a love-hate re­la­tion­ship with Our Per­fect Wed­ding. At first, we loved it be­cause it was a hi­lar­i­ous, orig­i­nal, home-brewed re­al­ity show that set Twit­ter alight and spawned many memes. Then we hated it be­cause the pro­duc­ers chose to fea­ture a statu­tory rapist in an episode in sea­son five be­fore go­ing on to up­set gay view­ers in the sea­son fi­nale.

Nev­er­the­less, the show is push­ing on, and sea­son six hits our screens tonight.

This time we’ll see ac­tress, singer and writer Them­bisa Mdoda as the new host. – Grethe Koen

Planet’s Got Tal­ent M-Net (Dstv chan­nel 101) Thurs­day, 6.30pm Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent is one of the most suc­cess­ful shows in TV history and has spawned for­mats in dozens of coun­tries, in­clud­ing our own.

Now, ac­tor and pre­sen­ter War­wick Davis hosts this com­pi­la­tion of the most spec­tac­u­lar acts from the fran­chise’s com­pe­ti­tions glob­ally.

Planet’s Got Tal­ent presents clips from coun­tries as far afield as Cam­bo­dia and Chile, in­clud­ing the one in which a Korea’s Got Tal­ent con­tes­tant rubbed wasabi and le­mons in his eyes and an In­done­sia’s Got Tal­ent hope­ful washed him­self in boil­ing soup.

Ex­pect back-flip­ping dogs, singers, dance troupes, ma­gi­cians and ac­ro­bats – just to prove that our planet is really brim­ming with tal­ent (and peo­ple quite will­ing to risk pain and hu­mil­i­a­tion on stage). – Grethe Koen

WEL­COME New Our Per­fect Wed­ding host Them­bisa Mdoda
