Search Party
Dory, Portia, Elliott and Drew must deal with the disastrous consequences of successfully tracking down missing classmate Chantal in season two of TBS’ dark comedy Search Party. As the friends’ paranoia grows, their relationships fray, and it becomes increasingly difficult to trust that no one will discover the group’s secret. These privileged, self-absorbed 20-somethings are in danger.

Ben 10
Introducing all-new aliens and evil villains, the latest Ben 10 series follows Ben, Gwen and Grandpa Max as they travel around in their motorhome, affectionately known as the Rust Bucket, throughout the summer holidays. During their travels, Ben discovers a mysterious watch, called an Omnitrix, which gives him the ability to transform into any one of 10 spectacular and powerful aliens. Ben has a world of extraterrestrial superpowers at his fingertips, resulting in tons of fun and epic adventures.

The Powerpuff Girls
Superhero sisters Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are known to their fellow citizens of Townsville as The Powerpuff Girls. Together, they protect their beautiful, bustling metropolis from sinister evildoers, intent on taking over. Juggling school, homework and a regular parade of villains is no easy task, but The Powerpuff Girls are more than up to the challenge. Armed with supercool superpowers and some topnotch teamwork, The Powerpuff Girls, with occasional assistance from Professor Utonium and the Mayor of Townsville, show their hometown and the world that it is possible to save the world before bedtime.
