Pick of the day

Barry, 10.45pm, Sky Atlantic & NOW TV

Last week's opening episode of this new HBO dramedy was a real hoot – the trick, of course, is how it moves on from its initial premise.

Bill Hader set himself a high bar as the eponymous Barry, an unsatisfied hitman who arrives in LA for a job and gets involved in acting classes led by Henry Winkler's Gene Cousineau.

This week Barry tries to put his past – and some murderous Chechens – behind him as the gang at the acting glass cope with some tragic news.

Ending Tonight

Homeland, 10.35pm, RTÉ 2

The seventh season of this hit-and-miss drama, starring Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, has been pretty enjoyable, and this finale should set things up for the eighth and last run.

As the story concludes, Carrie and Saul's mission doesn't go as planned. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Keane fights for her presidency. By all accounts, it's a pretty grim closer. Nothing new there, really . . .

The Durrells: Season 1, Netflix

Here's a hugely enjoyable, feelgood period dramedy that was lost to most Irish viewers when UTV Ireland turned into be3.

The exceptional Keeley Hawes stars as the widowed Louisa Durrell, who in 1935 suddenly announces that she and her four children will move from Bournemouth to the Greek island of Corfu.

The show is based on Gerald Durrell's three autobiographical books about his family's adventurous four years on a Greek island that didn't even have electricity back then.

Don't Miss

Urban Myths, 9.00pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

This comedy takes a unique look at the bizarre creative collaboration that took place between shock rocker Alice Cooper (Noel Fielding) and Spanish artist Salvador Dali (David Suchet) in 1970s' New York.

Facilitated in suitably surreal fashion by Alice’s agent Shep Gordon (Paul Kaye) and Salvador’s wife Gala (Sheila Hancock), this is the story of an unusual, fascinating and weird weekend that led to the creation of an extraordinary work of art.
