Pick of the day

Kidding, 10.40pm, Sky Atlantic & NOW TV

In his first serialised role in over two decades, and his first collaboration with director Michel Gondry since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jim Carrey stars in a poignant drama as children’s TV entertainer Mr Pickles.

Mr Pickles is an American icon, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to countless impressionable young minds, and also the anchor of a multimillion-dollar branding empire.

But when tragedy strikes and his family begins to implode, he finds no fairy tale, fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope.
