The Citizen (KZN) - - FRONT PAGE -

This spin-off from the hugely pop­u­lar Net­flix orig­i­nal, cen­tres on the rise of the Guadala­jara drug car­tel in the 1980s un­der king­pin Félix Gal­lardo (played by Diego Luna).

At odds with Gal­lardo and his vi­cious out­fit of sicar­ios (that would be “assassins”), is DEA agent Kiki Ca­marena (Michael Peña), who moves to Mex­ico to help bring the car­tel down.

Nat­u­rally, much like his coun­ter­parts in the orig­i­nal se­ries, Ca­marena soon finds that he’s way out of his depth.

Ex­pect a high body­count, po­lit­i­cal shenani­gans and pos­si­bly some heart-wrench­ing tragedy.

Nar­cos: Mex­ico lands on Net­flix on Novem­ber 16 Star Trek’s Chris Pine stars in this Net­flix orig­i­nal movie about the life of Robert The Bruce, the 14th Cen­tury Scot­tish up­start who de­fied the hated English King Ed­ward I.

The de­feated no­ble­man who turned out­law leads a group of Scot­tish lords in their quest for free­dom against the oc­cu­pa­tion of Scot­land.

Fea­tur­ing some fan­tas­tic per­for­mances (Chris Pine is con­vinc­ing in the lead and Stephen Dil­laine is de­li­ciously loath­some as Ed­ward), and shot with a grandeur to ri­val Game Of Thrones, Out­law Kind is a must-watch for this month.

Out­law King now. is on Net­flix right If you’re look­ing to laugh your­self silly, look no fur­ther than Fu­ture Man, a se­ries in which a dis­grun­tled jan­i­tor is called upon to save the world. Yes, re­ally.

Played with some self-ef­fac­ing charm by Josh Hutch­er­son (The Hunger Games) Josh the jan­i­tor’s only joy in life is play­ing a video game set in the fu­ture.

Once he clocks it, how­ever, his world is turned up­side down when sol­diers ar­rive from the fu­ture to in­form him that the game is ac­tu­ally a re­cruit­ment tool sent back in time.

Since he’s the only per­son in his time­line who has beaten it, Josh is pulled into the re­sis­tance. Fu­ture Man is fan­tas­tic fun.

It is on Show­max right now. From the ridicu­lous to the sala­cious, Show­max also of­fers the first two sea­sons of The Girl­friend Ex­pe­ri­ence, an an­thol­ogy se­ries that re­ally shouldn’t be streamed at work. The first sea­son fol­lows Chris­tine (Ri­ley Keough) a univer­sity stu­dent who also moon­lights as a high­price call girl. The sec­ond in­volves two sto­ry­lines, one in­volv­ing Wash­ing­ton lob­by­ists us­ing a scan­dal to black­mail a fund raiser and the other cen­tres on a woman on the run from an abu­sive re­la­tion­ship, whose de­ci­sion to turn to pros­ti­tu­tion may cost her US wit­ness pro­tec­tion. Steamy. Both sea­sons on Show­max.
