What's on NOW TV Entertainment | March 2019
Check out our top picks from NOW TV's excellent Entertainment selection.
Billions season 4
The glossy, high-powered drama returns this month for plenty more enjoyably soapy scheming as longtime rivals ex-U.S Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) and billionaire hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) reluctantly team up for revenge.
Marked as the targets of their respective wrath are those who successfully plotted to force Rhoades out of office and Axe's former employee-turned-competitor Taylor (Asia Kate Dillion) whose formed an uneasy alliance with Russian oligarch Grigor Andolov (John Malkovich).
The Rookie season 1
It might not be anything particularly ground-breaking, but The Rookie is a solidly entertaining police procedural featuring the ever-likeable Firefly star Nathan Fillion, plenty of sharp one liners and a refreshingly well-written cast of supporting characters.
In an attempt to inject some excitement into his life, newly divorced forty-year-old John Nolan (Fillion) joins the LAPD to become its oldest rookie. He’s joined by fellow newbies Jack (Titus Makin Jr) and Lucy (Melissa O’Neil) under the critical eye of Sergeant Grey (Richard T. Jones).
Bounty Hunters season 2
Sky scored their biggest sitcom launch in more than six years with the first season of this quirky comedy about timid antiques dealer Barnaby (Whitehall) and gun-toting bounty hunter Nina (Rosie Perez) who’re forced to team up to recover his stolen cash and and hopefully, the second season will be just as successful.
It’s the perfect light-hearted antidote to all of TV’s gritty, over serious dramas with a great sense of humour and excellent chemistry between Whitehall and Perez, who bounce off each other really well and always manage to sell the script’s weaker moment.
Requiem season 1
An incredibly tense and engaging psychological thriller with elements of David Lynch’s seminal Twin Peaks which sees tormented cellist Matilda (Lydia Wilson) travelling to a lonely town in rural Wales to investigate the case of a missing girl that’s potentially linked to her mum’s violent suicide.
Wilson is captivating in the lead role, beginning to slowly unravel as her search for the truth takes her to increasingly darker places, and it’s incredibly effective at maintaining a brilliantly creeping sense of dread thanks to an eerie score and beautifully haunting cinematography.
Game of Thrones seasons 1 to 7
Depending on your streaming habits, you might just have enough time to enjoy a full refresh of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’s staggeringly popular fantasy epic before the highly-anticipated eighth and final series exclusively debuts on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV next month.
The battle for the Iron Throne of Westeros is a completely addictive mix of political scheming, thrilling battle sequences and a cast of strong, fantastically unique characters including Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her dragons, young assassin Arya (Maisie Williams), head of the Night’s Watch Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and wise dwarf Tyrion (Peter Dinklage).
