Over The Month of Love? Catch These 5 shows for anti-Valentiners
Are you tired of hearing that February is the month of love? Perhaps you’re celebrating your single status, or you just want to take a break from relationships. But ask yourself this: why cuddle up when you can have the whole couch to yourself, with plenty of space to relax, stack the snacks, and pick the shows YOU want to watch? Now that sounds more like our cup of tea!
Luckily DStv has something to entertain you this month with a full line-up of shows. Have a look through these.
Get ready to laugh
It’s safe to assume that a reunion with friends after a long period of time is bound to evoke some feelings in you. Maybe it reminds you of simpler times or even brings your wild side out? Regardless, spending time with friends is a great way to distract you from all the red hearts in the shops and the perfect opportunity to catch up on the tea. Watch what happens when these friends reunite after years of being apart in Grown Ups 2, Sunday 20 February at 13:00 CAT on Studio Universal, DStv Channel 112.
Test the limits of your anxiety
If R-rated, over-the-top action movies are your thing, you’ll just love Run All Night. It’s fast-paced, features some pretty sketchy looking mobsters, and a few too many guns being pointed at a few too many people; this is quite the nail-biter. Luckily you don’t have to impress anyone with perfectly manicured claws anyway, so bite away! Tune in on Saturday 19 February at 23:30 CAT on M-Net Movies 3, DStv Channel 107.
Not to rub it in, but…
Some of us do still love a good rom-com – especially when it features Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson. Oh yes, those ladies really know how to crack a joke, but do they know how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love? You might even learn a thing or two about yourself, so set a reminder for How To Be Single, Saturday 19 February at 22:00 CAT on M-Net Movies 1, DStv Channel 104.
Finding friends in the unlikeliest of places
Do you remember where you met your best friend? School, at your job, or maybe on a night out through mutual friends? Those are all pretty common places to make friends – but in jail? Now that’s something new. The Shawshank Redemption is IMDB’s top rated movie of all time for good reason. Stacked with some of Hollywood’s best actors, watch two men struggle through prison life and finally find redemption Friday 18 February at 21:47 CAT on TNT, DStv Channel 137.
Something for those who haven’t given up on love
Frankly, not all of us have given up on love. Granted we might’ve been wronged in the past, but we are still holding out for Mr. Or Mrs. Right to come sweep us off our feet. That’s exactly how Sabrina felt before meeting her fiancé, Jason Taylor, a successful Wall Street worker. But like anyone who has ever planned a wedding will tell you, not everything goes to plan. Unfortunately, the biggest hurdle for this couple is having their parents get along! See what happens in Jumping The Broom, Wednesday 16 February at 16:57 CAT on M-Net Movies 4, DStv Channel 108.
