Weekend viewing

We’ve got your weekend watching sorted with street teens solving crimes, an uplifting movie about a would-be country singer and laugh-a-minute fun with the Minions and Gru. 

If you’re familiar with the famous tales of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, you might recall a group of street kids who Sherlock Holmes occasionally calls on for information. Well, thanks to Netflix, they’re now getting their very own show called The Irregulars. This eight-episode series follows the gang of troubled street teens around Victorian London as they are manipulated into solving crimes for the sinister Doctor Watson and his mysterious business partner, the elusive Sherlock Holmes. As the crimes take on a horrifying supernatural edge and a dark power emerges, it’ll be up to the Irregulars to come together to save not only London but the entire world.


Jessie Buckley delivers a star-making performance as Rose-Lynn, a would-be country singer who dreams of leaving her rough life in Glasgow, Scotland for the bright lights of Nashville. Fresh out of a stint in prison, Rose-Lynn is a single mom with an ankle monitor, a curfew, and a concerned mother, who wants her to focus more on her two children and less on her music. But when Rose-Lynn tries to hold down a housekeeping job, her boss hears her singing and becomes an unlikely supporter, intent on getting her to Nashville despite the long odds. Caught between hope and responsibility, Rose-Lynn must find her place without abandoning her raw talent and grand ambitions. Funny, moving and a must-see. Watch this uplifting movie on Showmax.


The mischievous Minions hope that Gru will return to a life of crime after the new boss of the Anti-Villain League fires him in Despicable Me 3. Instead, Gru decides to remain retired and travel to Freedonia to meet his long-lost twin brother for the first time. The reunited siblings soon find themselves in an uneasy alliance to take down the elusive Balthazar Bratt, a former 1980s child star who seeks revenge against the world. Sunday, 6:20pm on movies.
