New to Foxtel Play this week
There are some fresh new (and slightly decomposing) faces amongst Foxtel Play’s lineup. Here’s what’s arrived this week.
|Episodes 1 and 2This spin off to the hugely popular The Walking Dead details the fallout of human civilization that precedes Rick’s awakening during the zombie apocalypse. The first season has only just begun so now the time to catch the Walking Dead bug.||FX|
|Parts 1, 2 and 3From the man that bought you arguably the greatest television series of all time, The Wire, comes this HBO miniseries about a white middle class community’s resistance to the development of a scattered public housing. Best of all, it stars Ex-Machina star and future Poe Dameron (Star Wars VII), Oscar Issac.||Showcase|
|Episode 1Though it’s the season where beloved creator, Dan Harmon, departed it’s still a must for any Community fan. In Season we see more of the Dean, learn about Pierce’s family and most importantly, everyone’s favourite character, Magnitude is back. Pop! Pop!||Comedy Channel|
|Episode 4The outrageously funny (and currently bearded) Graham Norton has a fall couch this episode. With Aussie Rebel Wilson, the majestic Jon Snow, Matt Leblanc and Mumford and Sons, there’s something in this episode for everyone.||BBC UKTV|

|Peaky Blinders is the natural choice to transition to once you’ve binged Boardwalk Empire in its entirety.

|Have you fallen behind on your television viewing? Did you miss out on the greatest show to come of 2014? Make things right this weekend by streaming this hypnotising crime/drama from Cary Fukunaga. If you haven’t heard, True Detective follows two troubled homicide detectives as they hunt a serial killer over 17 years. Once you’re finished that...||Box Sets||September 9 2015|
|...move straight onto Season 2. Admittedly, True Detective’s second season featuring a moody Colin Farrell and a brooding Rachel Mcadams has received less than favourable reviews but it’s still mindless fun and you can laugh along with the world at bad lines of dialogue, like “Never do anything out of hunger. Not even eating”.||Showcase||September 9 2015|
|Whatever your plans this weekend, there’s high chance your Sunday will be spent battling a hangover with a vengeance, dreading the Monday that will inevitably follow. Spend exactly 620 minutes with McClane and you’ll feel like you take on the world.||Action Movies||September 13 2015|
|Speaking of lazy Sundays, it looks like it’s going to be a wet one this weekend. As illustrated by the insane success of the Disney franchise Cars, kids go nuts for personified automobiles. A perfect distraction for a day spent inside.The spinoff, Planes, takes the action to the clear blue skies, something you won’t see much of until next week when you’re back in the office.||Disney Movies||September 6|
