Catch up on all eight episodes of this gripping series this weekend – and then get ready for the granddaddy of all Italian Mafia sagas as The Octopus (La Piovra) makes its MHz Choice debut – all ten seasons – on September 18th!

MYSTERY | GERMANY | GERMAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES | TV-14

Homicide Unit Istanbul

Location, location, location! The third season of Homicide Unit Istanbul continues to thrill because of the exotic places Inspector Mehmet Özakin and his trusty assistant Mustafa go to in their investigations. Racing from gleaming, urban offices to bazaars to winding roads and farms in the middle of exquisite countryside… it’s all part of the job! And there’s usually a chase or a fight scene where Inspector Özakin gives the perp what for against the backdrop of beautiful, ancient Istanbul. If you’re going to chase the bad guys, why not do it in a beautiful place?



Mafia Only Kills In Summer

COMEDY | ITALY | ITALIAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES | TV-PG

A delightful gem (with a hard edge) to close out another epic MHz Choice summer, Mafia Only Kills In Summer takes you into the world of ten-year-old Salvatore Giammarresi, a keen observer of the adults around him and the ironies of growing up in Palermo in the 1970s. It’s The Wonder Years meets The Octopus – a bittersweet but ultimately uplifting tale of growing up in a world under the iron grip of the Mafia.
