Flying high after the triumph of opening night, Ricky, Nini, Gina, and the Wildcats gather at Ashlyn’s for a New Year’s Eve party. Miss Jenn runs into the new North High rival theatre teacher – a.k.a her ex-boyfriend – and at the stroke of midnight, shocking revelations come to the surface.
Star Wars – The Bad Batch – Episode 3
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch—a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army—each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers – Episode 8
Set in present day Minnesota, the Mighty Ducks have evolved from scrappy underdogs to an ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team. After 12-year-old Evan Morrow (Brady Noon) is unceremoniously cut from the Ducks, he and his mom, Alex (Lauren Graham), set out to build their own team of misfits to challenge the cutthroat, win-at-all-costs culture of youth sports today. With the help of Gordon Bombay, they rediscover the joys of playing just for love of the game.
Big Shot – Episode 105 “This is our House”
Louise’s dad is arrested. Louise and Olive get caught cheating on a test. Marvyn dates again.
Disney Special Agent Oso (S1 & 2) + Three Healthy Steps (S1)
Oso, a lovable teddy bear who is, however improbably, a special agent in training, turns to young viewers at home to complete his missions for the United Network for Investigating Quite Usual Events (UNIQUE), an international consortium of stuffed animals charged with teaching kids how to complete everyday tasks such as mailing a letter, using a library or just cleaning their room. Oso’s adventures carry titles inspired by James Bond films: “Gold Feather,” “A View to a Book” and “Carousel Royale,” among others.
X-Men: The Last Stand
A government-supported laboratory finds a cure for the mutants and the DNA of a powerful boy is used for it. However, the mutants must give up their powers and become human, hence splitting them.
Life Below Zero (S15)
When bears, wolves and foxes are your only neighbours, life can be pretty lonely. Add minus-60-degree days and a constant battle for the most basic necessities, and you have the daily challenges of people who live in remote corners of Alaska. This series takes viewers deep into an Alaskan winter to meet tough, resilient residents as they try to stay one step ahead of storms and man-eating beasts to survive the season. When the closest neighbour is more than 300 miles away, these Alaskans subsist solely on what is hunted and foraged. They catch fish for currency in bartering for supplies, or use their packs of sled dogs for transportation. Also highlighted is a time of year not always part of what viewers see in Alaska: spring! Ice is breaking, animals are waking, and residents face new tests before deep cold returns.
‘Race To The Center Of The Earth’
The epic seven-part series, created by award-winning producers Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri, is an adrenaline-fueled global competition that pits four teams of three against one another in a nonstop sprint across the globe for a $1 million prize. ‘Race To The Center Of The Earth’ is an extreme non-elimination competition that follows four groups of adventurers, each starting from different corners of the earth, as they race to a buoy holding the grand prize. Racing from different corners of the planet — South America, Russia, Canada and Southeast Asia, the teams will face untamed jungles, frozen arctic, arid deserts, bustling cities, treacherous mountains and vast oceans to reach the location where all four routes intersect. The first team to arrive at the buoy claims it all. Embarking on the adventure of a lifetime, these adventurous teams, made up of friends and co-workers, are confident their bond is what will lead them to the finish line.
