Grab some downtime these holidays and binge your way through one of these great series. But with so much on offer on Showmax, how do you choose?
The McDreamy Fan
Opt out of holiday madness and watch 13 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. You’ll need a serious snack stash to get you through those heartbreaking moments, but it’ll be worth it as you experience the ups and downs of the lives of the staff and patients of this Seattle hospital.
The Ultimate Geek
If the teary Seattle doctors aren’t your vibe, may we suggest you disappear into another dimension with the raddest, baddest Doctor of them all? Seasons 9-11 of Doctor Who are on Showmax, and now that Season 11 has come to an end, you’ll get all 10 episodes of Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor. You won’t need a sonic screwdriver to fix your holiday boredom with this geekfest.
The HBO Addict
You appreciate the finer things in life. So settle in with a nice glass of red and catch up on the acclaimed series you may have missed during the year. You’ll finally be able to participate in water cooler discussions when you catch up on all the episodes of Game of Thrones up to the end of Season 7. Spoiler alert: whoever you love, they’re probably dead.
The Armchair Detective
After you solve the mystery of who ate the last mince pie, chill out with these gripping whodunnits. Give yourself the gift of four seasons of Luther starring the official sexiest man alive, Idris Elba.
Proudly South African
Local really is lekker, and you need look no further than Showmax to find the best of SA series. Walk down the aisle with crazy, hilarious Tali in Tali’s Wedding Diary. Binge-watch the whole thing to the end, and you will never look at butterflies the same way again.
The History Buff
Corsets are ripped, heroes do heroic stuff and sweeping stories are told in these period dramas. There’s been a tonne of hype around new series Vanity Fair, and it’s a sumptuous, pacy adaptation with a tough character at its heart. It’s coming directly from M-Net to Showmax, and what’s more, you can watch the next episode immediately on Showmax so you’ll be even further ahead.
Naughty and Nice
After the kids are in bed, switch to your grown-ups only profile and indulge in one of these racy series. In Season 2 of The Deuce, the porn industry is now legal, but that doesn’t dial down the sexy shenanigans and it certainly won’t end the party. Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco, The Deuce has a 99% rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
