Sorry it’s evenings only folks – these ones are for the big kids only!

Game of Thrones

If there’s one series that is synonymous with binge it’s the one and only GOT! Catch up with your favourite heroes, heroines and the baddest of baddies in 72 glorious episodes of this multi-award-winning HBO series.

You can catch two back-to-back episodes Mondays to Saturdays from 21:00 CAT. Season 3 starts on 14 April so set a reminder and settle in, no matter how many times you’ve seen it before!

Girls Season 4

Hannah and the girls are back on the small screen when season 4 of this controversial yet somehow irresistible series airs from Wednesday, 22 April at 01:00 CAT. If you’re missing your besties, this is your best bet for some bonding with females you can relate to.

Find out what all the fuss is about in four double bills of this popular series which resulted in a Golden Globe for lead actress Lena Dunham.
