Chris O'Dowd is back with Get Shorty, The Directors looks at Ridley Scott, US procedural FBI returns for a second run, and it's bye-bye to Alan Bennett's Talking Heads and Other Voices...

Pick of the Day

Get Shorty, 9.00pm, Sky Atlantic & NOW TV

Chris O'Dowd and Ray Romano return in the third season of the darkly comic gangster-turned-movie producer drama.

We pick up the story two years after the events of the season two finale, with Miles now having served his sentence in prison after having his production credits for Wylderness taken away from him.

He's heading into his new, fresh life in the open with a clean slate and all the joys of revenge in his heart. Meanwhile, Rick’s unique love story with Amara (the marvellous Lidia Porto) continues as they relocate to Guatemala.

Worth watching just to witness Chris O'Dowd's chilling ability to go from comic guy to cold-blooded killer in the blink of an eye.
