Russell Howard: Lubricant (14th)
Russell Howard is back with a two-part special full of non-threatening jokes about recent events. Charming and unchallenging, Howard delivers his usual blend of topical hot takes and humour that won’t upset your mum.
Selling Tampa (15th)
The exploits of a Black owned, all-female team of real estate agents flogging houses in Tampa, Florida, may just be sassy and fun enough to distract you from the fact you’re, you know, watching a show about real estate agents.
Aggretsuko S4 (15th)
The Japanese animated adventures of an anthropomorphised red panda and her rage issues and obsession with death metal has now reached its fourth season! This is actually pretty cute and quirky.
PICK OF THE WEEK
The Witcher S2 (17th)
Sexiest nerd on the planet, Henry Cavill, returns in the second season of The Witcher. When we last left Geralt of Rivia, the white-haired monster-hunter was teaming up with his charge Ciri (Freya Allan) and fans of the game or books know that’s when things really kick off.
The Girl From Oslo (19th)
Tense-looking Norwegian thriller about a diplomat who heads to the Middle East to rescue her kidnapped daughter. Expect plenty of twists, turns and actors looking pensively into the distance.
Eyes Wide Shut (14th)
It’s not a great film, but it’s a nice reminder that even deadset artistic legends like Stanley Kubrick can have off days. Plus there are heaps of orgies.
MacGruber S1 (17th)
It’s the show based on the movie that was based on the Saturday Night Live character by Will Forte, that was a pisstake of the action movie genre. Could be a disaster, but it also stars Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe and Val Kilmer, so it’ll at least be an interesting one.
Station Eleven S1 (17th)
Based on the hugely popular book, this is the story of a deadly pandemic (oh no) that wipes out most of the world (oof) and how the survivors deal with it (yeesh). Honestly, if the subject matter doesn’t turn you off, this looks superb.
She’s the Boss S1 (13th)
She’s the Boss is a reality TV show that follows Nicole and Josh Walters as they try to navigate the challenging path of caring for three daughters while running a business. Potentially feelgood fun.
Messyness S1 (14th)
So, this is a show where Snooki from The Jersey Shore teams up with celebs like Tori Spelling and makes fun of videos of people getting absolutely off chops and having accidents, ill-advised hook ups and other boozy shenanigans. So, yeah, that’s a thing you now know.
With Love (17th)
This series follows the Diaz siblings, who are all looking for love or a purpose in life. Each episode is set during a different holiday during the course of a year. This looks to be some engaging, quality drama right here.
The Courier (18th)
He may not be able to pronounce “penguin” (seriously, look it up) but Benedict Cumberbatch can spy for Queen and country in this slick thriller based on a true story. Rachel Brosnahan also stars.
Foodtastic S1 (15th)
Here’s a show where teams of contestants do their very best to create fun and spectacular culinary creations for the chance to win big prizes and bragging rights. When your parents told you not to play with your food, apparently they were wrong!
Our Kind of People (15th)
Soapy drama based on the best-selling book by Lawrence Otis Graham, this looks to be some entertaining stuff for those in the mood for something that occasionally skews a little trashy.
It began with Unbreakable in 2000, it continued with Split in 2016 and concludes now with Glass. And the ending is… well, a bit divisive but it’s defo worth a look for fans of M. Night Shyamalan and a fresh take on superheroes and villains.
