With four full days of weekend ahead of you, that's a lot of time to get around to those TV shows that you've been meaning to check out at SBS On Demand. But we know what you're thinking: "There's too much to choose from". It's just easier just to press play on a random episode of Travel Man that you've already watched a couple of times before. 

Relax and sit back, we've gone through the SBS On Demand catalogue to curate a small collection of shows that you will have a great time watching over the long weekend. There's a lil' something for all tastes.

Knightfall

Knightfall is the story of The Knights Templar, one of the most powerful entities in history, guardians of the Holy Grail and the road to Jerusalem, founders of the modern banking system and inspiration for Arthurian legends. When the blood of a brother is shed, Landry and the Templars are forced to take up their swords again.

Safe Harbour

This bold new psychological thriller follows a group of friends whose sailing holiday of a lifetime alters their lives forever after they cross paths with a struggling fishing boat overloaded with asylum seekers en-route to Australia. 

Aber Bergen

Erik and Elea, two of Norway’s shrewdest and most persistent defense lawyers, used to be married. In this character-driven courtroom drama, the two must work together towards justice for their defendants. In this episode, Erik must defend his best friend who is accused of murder.

The Secret

The Secret is a chilling true crime series based on the disturbing real events of a Sunday school teacher and a respectable, religious dentist (a chilling portrayal from James Nesbitt), pillars of the community, who form a murderous partnership.

Agatha Christie's Criminal Games

Agatha Christie's world-famous mysteries are delightfully adapted in a seductive and witty new French series. Set in the 1950s, these iconic stories introduce new investigators in classic Christie style: Chief Inspector Laurence, a man of class and refined taste, and the young ambitious journalist Alice Avril - along with Laurence's ever-loyal secretary, Marlène.

Just One Look

Eva Beaufils takes just one look at an old photo and it turns her whole world upside down. Suddenly, her husband Bastien disappears. Eva has only one thing left in mind: find him at all costs.

Queer As Folk

For a group of gay twentysomethings in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, love may prove elusive, but sex is always available, especially for Brian, a lusty advertising executive who's perpetually in search of his next conquest. Brian meets high school student Justin at the Babylon night club and takes him home, but their escapade is interrupted by the news that Brian's friend Lindsay, a lesbian to whom he had donated sperm, is delivering their baby.
