John Byrne catches several new and returning shows including The Leftovers, a new sitcom set in the 1970s and a documentary series about the early days of Indie music.
The LA underbelly, cynical consultants, an incompetent private eye, a golf geezer, Jerry Lee Lewis and ageing ballroom dancers - it's been a busy TV week for John Byrne.
Enjoying some well earned sofa time over the next seven days? Here's John Byrne's TV choices for the week ahead: Saturday July 18-Friday July 24.
This week, John Byrne looks at a one-off drama about the 2005 London bombings, a new drama/black comedy about a reality TV show, a post-apocalyptic boom-fest from Michael Bays, and Colin Farrell getting killed - or not - on True Detective.
Fans of Lady Gaga will see her in a new light when she stars in American Horror Story: Hotel, the fifth season of Ryan Murphy's spooky TV show.
