If you're going no further than the sofa, here are some tips on what's worth watching on the box between Friday and Sunday. As ever, it's a busy one . . . especially if you're an ABBA fan.

Pick of the Weekend

The Joy of ABBA, 11.00pm Friday, BBC Four

If you're looking forward to Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again here's something to really get you in the mood.

Between 1974 and 1982 ABBA had a vice-like grip on the single and album charts across the globe, but divided critical opinion. As uncool as they were popular, it was only in more recent times that they've been universally praised.

This excellent documentary (originally aired in 2013) explores how they raised the bar for pop music as a form and made Planet Pop fall in love with the sound of Swedish melancholy.

Following that, at midnight there's ABBA at the BBC, a fascinating compilation of many of the band's appearances on the Beeb.

Also: look out for Mamma Mia! It's on at 9.30pm on Sunday on RTÉ One.

Stan Lee's Lucky Man, 9.00pm Friday, Sky One & NOW TV

Stan Lee's hit crime drama returns and this time, the bracelets draw Harry (James Nesbitt) to Hong Kong, and into a clash with possibly his greatest nemesis yet.

Professional killer Samuel Blake (Spooks' Rupert Penry-Jones) is a shady sort with contacts on both sides of the law and a lifelong mission to make the bracelets his.

But that's not all. Following Isabella's death, Harry is a wanted man and is on the run with Eve. And worse still, Suri is the one charged with bringing him to justice.

Here's Stan Lee explaining the inspiration behind the series:

Don't Miss

Artist in Residence: the Sex Clinic, 10.10pm Sunday, Channel 4

Hard to figure out how seriously to take this new three-part series - if at all - but it certainly looks intriguing.

Bryony Kimmings is apparently a bold, sweary performance artist. Launching Artist in Residence, a new strand in which artists immerse themselves in unlikely and fascinating places, Bryony take up residency in one of Britain's busiest sexual health clinics.

She asks patients to open up about the most intimate details of their sex lives and love lives, then follows them home and creates extraordinary performances.

She makes a radical dating guide for newly-single Trevor; a musical performance about sexual confidence for carefree millennial Salome; and she also helps two sex workers, Jodi and Tina, lead a parade through a city where sex is often easier to find than love.

Not for the faint-hearted, obviously.
