You may have seen Grey’s Anatomy or Bridgerton, but if you haven’t seen Shonda Rhimes hit legal TV show then Scandal is a must-see. it will fill the void in your heart while you wait for Bridgerton season 2.

Taken

Star has a very particular set of skills and it has helped it to land all three Taken movies in one place. Watch things go from pretty good to pretty insane over three Taken movies as Liam Neeson reminds us why he’s the best Dad around.

Jojo Rabbit

The launch of Star on Disney+ means that many 20th Century Fox award winners now have a home. Jojo Rabbit is just one of a number of great Oscar Winners on the platform including The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Favourite, Hidden Figures and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.

Quantico

Truly underrated while it was airing now is a great time catch yourself up on Quantico. The series is all about new FBI recruits facing basic training. But the plot thickens when one of them becomes the prime suspect in a terrorist attack.

How I Met Your Mother

If you’ve watched all of Friends too many times on Netflix then the next logical step is How I Met Your Mother. The show is about another group of friends living in New York, each of which is dealing with the day to day drama of work and relationships. The perfect fix-all.

Stumptown

If you liked How I Met Your Mother then catch Cobie Smulders in her next role in Stumptown. The show is yet to air locally so Star is the first place Aussies can catch the show. Based on the graphic novel Stumptown follows a strong, female private investigator as she deals with the ramifications of PTSD from her time in the army by solving crimes.

The X-Files

If you didn’t believe in Star then you really should because it has nabbed the absolute classic sci-fi procedural The X-Files. Seasons 1-11 of the show will all be available for streaming alongside The X-Files movie, so get your paranormal fix here.


This is just the tip of the iceberg of all the content Star is bringing to our screens from February 23.
