What to watch on Showmax this May
Brand new in May, there’s Stephen King’s The Outsider, a horror miniseries from HBO about the gruesome murder of a young boy.
Also from HBO, there’s Run, a dark comedy about a pair of college sweethearts who leave their lives behind to go on a road trip. It’s executive produced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, so if you loved Fleabag and Killing Eve, this should be right up your alley.
If you’re into movies, May is your month. The entire Fast & Furious series is available to binge from 14 May, while every single Bourne movie (Damon and Renner) lands on 21 May.
In the meantime, try HBO’s excellent movie Bad Education, a real-life drama about a massive public school scandal that’s been touted as Hugh Jackman’s best-ever performance.
Fans of local drama are being spoiled, with hundreds of episodes of long-running dramas like The River and Suidooster to binge. For excellent documentaries, dive into How to Steal a Country which looks at the state capture scandal, or Stroop: Journey into the Rhino Horn War, which just won a SAFTA for Best Natural History and Environmental Programme.
