Here are some tips on what's worth watching on the box this weekend between now and Sunday night . . . and there's plenty on offer!
Pick of the weekend
Jessica Jones, from Friday, Netflix
Back for a third and final season, a pitch-perfect Krysten Ritter goes one more round as the hard-drinking, super-strong Marvel PI - easily my favourite super hero character of recent years.
The 13-episode season, which will be the last, not just for this show but for the entire Netflix MCU, picks up with Jessica trying to forget that her mother was a psychotic murderer.
The messed-up hero focuses on helping the helpless, until Dorothy Walker (Rebecca De Mornay) turns up to hire Jessica to find her own sister and former best friend, Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor).

In its day this music was never identified as a genre, but in the 21st century it has come to be known as Yacht Rock. Katie’s account is both the soundtrack of her American teen years and a re-appraisal of the era.
Here's Yacht Rock's greatest voice - Michael McDonald:

Frasier, RTÉ Player
One of the great American sitcoms, Frasier is a spin-off of the equally superb Cheers, featuring Kelsey Grammar in the role that defines his career.

The first five seasons are available, and if this show doesn't put a smile on your face you simply haven't got a sense of humour.
