What’s on in October
The hormone monsters are back and they’re terrorising even more pre-pubescent teens. That’s right, Big Mouth Season 2 has arrived.
Created by comedy juggernauts Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett, the all-too-relatable adult animated series follows tweens Nick Birch and Andrew Glouberman as they navigate their way through the most awkward years of any young man’s life.
Puberty has never been so funny and the personification of the male and female “hormone monsters” who steer the characters into disaster after disaster are particularly ingenious. Be transported back to the years you budded from child to adult, and laugh at the expense of the fictional characters battling the everyday embarrassments we all struggled through.
A story of a novelist committing crimes from their own books is a reality that’s been uncovered in news stories over the past years, making Stan’s newest series, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair, hit close to home indeed.
Heartthrob Patrick Dempsey, known for his role as “McDreamy” on Grey’s Anatomy, plays novelist Harry Quebert, a literary icon who suddenly finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation, as the prime suspect. Based on a book by Swiss author Joel Dicker, the story takes a dark turn early on as the body of a young girl is found in Quebert’s backyard, buried with a copy of his book.
Let yourself be enthralled by this newest murder mystery and see if you can guess how the dark tale will end.
Aussie comedian Tim Ferguson is known for many things, from his stand-up to his screenwriting, but the thing that has drawn him so much public attention is both tragic and inspirational — his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis and his ability to go on performing regardless.
ABC iview’s newest two-part series, Tick F**cking Tock, chronicles Ferguson’s journey, along with that of his comedy band, the Doug Anthony Allstars.
The documentary delves into Ferguson’s diagnosis and how it has affected not only the band, but the friendship between the comedy-musicians.
The Good Doctor will see you now and the diagnosis is dire — you will be glued to the TV as season 2 of this unmissable series airs on Channel 7.
We may have been addicted to the narcissistic Gregory House once upon a time, but audiences around the world are falling in love with the newest TV doctor, Shaun Murphey, who has autism, and is played by Freddie Highmore.
The fresh-faced young doctor may not know his way around all human emotions, but he is one of the best practising surgeons in the country.
Let yourself be captivated by this TV medical drama that’s only two seasons in but looks like it will have a very long life — with the help of the good-hearted young doctor behind it all, of course.
Big Mouth returns for a second season of pre-pubescent hilarity.
The Good Doctor is back for another season.
Comedian Tim Ferguson is well known for his career, which continues to skyrocket despite his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis.
