The net: promised land – start season 2

Ten years after his son died in an accident, former football pro, sports doctor and doping hunter Georg Trotter is approached to run a state-of-the-art sports clinic in the Austrian Alps. Here, injured football players are chased back onto the field using state-of-the-art methods within a poop and a fart. Georg soon becomes suspicious: does the clinic really care about the well-being of the players?

The quick and the dead

Veronica Superguide Score: ★★★★

Ellen (Sharon Stone) is excellent as a tough gunfighter who enters a shooting competition organized by Herod (Gene Hackman). She still has a bone to pick with him, but she must first survive the rest. One of them is Fee ‘The Kid’ Herod (Leonardo DiCaprio), who is on a roll as Herod’s son. Priest Cort (Russell Crowe) is also forced to participate. The film pokes fun at all the clichés without ridiculing the genre. Gene Hackman is at his most evil and best.

Big brother – start season 3

In 1999 we all sat open-mouthed in front of the tube for the mother of all reality series. Quite a bit crazy, because besides the necessary bickering and the occasional lovemaking, really not a whistle happened in the house that was packed with cameras. The Dutch-Flemish revival of Big brother is admittedly a bit more exciting with rather diverse candidates, but technically it is not a high-flyer. Nevertheless, RTL 5 and Play4 are once again joining forces for a fresh season.

Tough as nails – first episode

As a garbage man, plumber and dock worker, the ten protagonists are out Tough as nails used to rolling up their sleeves, but this time more is expected of them than unloading a container or fitting a pipe. In the grueling competition, the powerhouses are tested on their stamina and teamwork in a number of individual challenges and group assignments.
