TV – Modern Family
Sky One, 8pm & 8.30pm
If you’ve got Sky you’ve probably been waiting ages for this to come back. It’s as funny as ever. Possibly the best comedy right now.
TV – Food & Drink
BBC Two, 8.30pm
Michel Roux is fantastic, and bringing the show back with him was genius. So much better than Saturday Kitchen…
TV – The Culture Show: Damon Albarn
BBC Two, 10pm
A look at his new solo material in this special devoted to the Blur and Gorillaz front man.
TV – Doll & Em
Sky Living, 10pm
Emily Mortimer plays herself, with best friend Dolly, in an LA set improvised comedy that’s got to be worth a go.
TV – The Restaurant Man
BBC Two, 8pm
TV – Line of Duty
BBC Two, 9pm
TV – Inside No.9
BBC Two, 10pm
The best night of the week for TV! Quality food / business doc, followed by tense cops investigating cops drama, finished by a weird and wonderful concoction from half of The League Of Gentlemen.
Ignore the box (can you still call it a box when it’s no longer box shaped?) and go old school with a… puzzle.
I know putting pieces of cardboard together sounds odd, entertainment has moved on, but when I picked up a free puzzle from WH Smiths a few weeks back thanks to O2 Priority Moments, I actually got excited about the idea. Ok so I haven’t started it yet, but I will!
You can pick them up quite cheap from charity shops, or possibly your parents loft.
ON-DEMAND – Arrested Development
Nothing much on tonight, so why not indulge yourself with a marathon of this fantastic comedy. When a TV family is described as “dysfunctional”, you can normally expect cliches and few laughs, but the Bluffs really are hysterical. You’ll recognise many of the stars, with Michael Cera, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett all having gone on to bigger – though not always better – things.
TV – True Detective
Sky Atlantic, 9pm
This looks good, though is meant to be pretty odd too! Actor of the moment Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson team up as cops in the latest HBO drama.
Head to your local Waitrose, spend £5 (maybe a nice chicken and some potatoes to roast?) then pick up a free copy of a Sunday paper (Times, Observer, Telegraph and others available). It should keep you entertained for most of the afternoon. You just need to sign up for a Waitrose card, which should be available at the tills.
