Every month, we’ll tell you about new television shows to hit terrestrial and cable channels, as well as streaming sites in Singapore! We’ll also highlight shows that you’ve got to be home (or on your phone) to catch every month.

Sisters in Law (Viu)

An overview of June’s shows

An assortment of good shows are available this June, like “Duel” and the new season of “Orange is the New Black”. Of note is the fact that several Mediacorp shows are now available on Netflix, such as “Mind Game” and “Dream Job”.

This brings fresh hope that someday, “VR Man” will be made available on streaming sites again. “Superheroes Decoded” is also available this month with plenty of little factoids to scratch your superhero itch.

Duel (4 Jun)
Viu

Jang Deuk-cheon is the chief of a crime squad. At home, he is kind and friendly father to his daughter. He meets a human clone and gets involved in a shocking case. A battle takes place between human clones.

The synopsis says it all — “meets a human clone”. It’s amazing how this is described as if it’s a perfectly normal occurrences in every drama. And honestly, that’s enough of a premise to get you hooked. Not only does Jang discover a human clone, the drama ends up with a battle between human clones. And the next question is — how does his daughter fare in all this?

Orange is the New Black (Season 5) (9 Jun)
Netflix

Orange is the New Black is the outrageous and critically-acclaimed series from Emmy® Award-winner Jenji Kohan about a diverse group of inmates serving time in a women’s prison.

“Orange is the New Black” returns for its fifth season. If you haven’t heard, its also been renewed for a sixth and seventh season. It was so popular that ten episodes (out of 13) of the fifth season have already been leaked online. What we want to know is what Daya (Dascha Polanco) is going to do with the gun she acquired in the season cliffhanger of the fourth season. Does everyone survive?
