Stuff To Watch This Week (Mar 13-19, 2023)

The 95th Annual Academy Awards

It’s that time of the year when Hollywood goes insular, looks inwards, and pats itself on the back. (Sorry, we don’t have time for you, Ukrainian President Zelenskyy.) My USB crystal ball predicts Everything Everywhere All at Once will take home the key awards (Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress) but the Best Picture will be handed out to Top Gun: Maverick, the movie, which according to Steven Spielberg, saved Hollywood’s ass. That, and Jimmy Kimmel, hosting it for the third time, fails to keep the show under three hours (it will never happen!). Live from the Dolby Theatre in LA.

Watch it on: meWATCH & Channel 5, Mon, 6.30am (red carpet) & 8am (main show); same-day encore at 5.30pm (red carpet) & 10.30pm (main show); catch up on meWATCH

Silent Walls

This 20-ep mystery thriller follows four different families living in a spooky mansion over the course of nine decades. The saga kicks off in 1938, with Tasha Low as a servant working for an affluent Burmese-Chinese family. Things get complicated when she falls for an anti-Japanese activist (Adyen Sng). There’s also an NC16 version, available only on meWATCH from Monday.

Titoudao: Dawn of a New Stage

Wait a second, another season? Didn’t they wrap things on nicely? What do I know? I’m just the guy who does the listings. Anyway, this sequel is actually a prequel/midquel, set in the late 1960s-70s. Koe Yeet reprises her role as Chinese opera starlet Oon Ah Chiam, while Joel Choo returns as her husband. The cast also includes Chen Yixin, Noah Yap, Tay Ping Hui, Shrey Bhargava, Sofia Dendroff and Chen Liping, with the latter making her English drama debut as the leader of an all-female wayang troupe.

The Last of Us

Season finale! Season finale! Joe and Ellie (Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey) finally reach the Salt Lake City hospital where the Fireflies are said to be developing a vaccine against the cordyceps pathogen. What kind of surprises can the surrogate father-daughter expect there? The show’s already renewed for Season 2, so they’re going to be okay….ish?

Watch it on: HBO Go & HBO (Singtel TV Ch 320 & StarHub Ch 601), Mon, 10am

The Banshees of Inisherin

Martin McDonaugh’s follow-up to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a 1920s-set black comedy starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson as friends whose relationship is going through a rough patch amid the Irish Civil War. The movie is up for nine Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. (My USB crystal ball says Brendan Fraser wins Best Actor for The Whale — sorry, Colin, you’re going home empty-handed. But, hey, at least you got the swag.)

Money Shot: The Pornhub Story

Here’s something to watch with your parents (have fun explaining the title to them): a documentary about Pornhub, the internet’s most famous adult entertainment platform and the allegations of non-consensual material and trafficking on the site. What's next? OnlyFans?

Gotham Knights

In the prevailing climate at DC Studios, this series — produced by ‘Arrow-verse’ architect Greg Berlanti —  is an ‘Elseworlds’ project, one that has zilch to do with the larger DC universe CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran have mapped out. The 13-part drama follows a ragtag group of Batman-adjacent characters — including Bruce Wayne’s adopted son (Oscar Morgan) and the children of the Dark Knight’s foes — on the run after being framed for Batman’s murder. Supernatural’s Misha Collins plays Harvey Dent — and we all know who he’ll turn into, right?

Ted Lasso, Season 3 

Final season! Can Ted (Jason Sudeikis) still keep his optimism up after being betrayed by Nathan (Nick Mohammed)? (That ungrateful a-hole!) And when will AFC Richmond end its losing streak?

Boston Strangler

This Ridley Scott-produced true-crime thriller stars Keira Knightley and Carrie Coon as journalists who risk life and limb — as well as the rampant sexism of the era — to report on the titular serial killer who murdered 13 women in the Boston area from 1962 to 1964. Think She Said meets Zodiac.

Post Mortem with Mick Garris

Scott Beck and Bryan Woods, the writers of A Quiet Place, reflect on their experiences of directing 65, the Sam Raimi-produced sci-fi thriller about an astronaut (Adam Driver), who crashes into Earth during the Cretaceous Period, the time dinosaurs ruled the planet.
