Pick of the Day

First Dates Ireland, 9.30pm, RTÉ2

Maître d' Mateo Saina, barman Ethan and waitress Alice are back hosting as the restaurant opens its doors once more for singletons looking for love over dinner.

This year, the game of love has new regulations. Daters are suitably distanced, contact is strictly off the cards, and background diners are all family bubbles, among them, friends and family of the daters we meet.  

Among the daters hoping to unleash their inner Romeo or Juliet or both are the spectacularly mohawked Philip from Tipperary, making a memorable entrance on a skateboard.

Then there are best friends Aimee and Laura from Down, double dating in full view of their mothers.

There’s also Shane from Meath, whose brave recovery from a serious head injury yields his first date in 14 years.

Returning from last season are Martina from Limerick who came to the restaurant with her sister last year, but is flying solo this time and Peter from Clare, hoping that this year’s date won’t sneeze wine out of her nose.

The Directors, 8.00pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

Then the enfant terrible of Hollywood cinema, Quentin Tarantino (above) arrived in 1993 with his screenplay for True Romance, which led to his directorial debut the next year with Reservoir Dogs.

Further accolades came with the iconic crime drama Pulp Fiction, which cemented his quirky style with its retro soundtrack and non-linear presentation.

Over the years, Tarantino turned his love of cinema to various genres, including Blaxploitation (Jackie Brown), Westerns (Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight), martial arts (Kill Bill) and WWII (Inglorious Basterds) before turning the mirror on Hollywood itself with his magnum opus, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

Amazing Hotels: Life Beyond the Lobby, 9.00pm, BBC Two

This series takes on a new level of ridiculousness - or envy, if you prefer - during a pandemic.

Tonight, Monica Galetti and Giles Coren visit Jade Mountain (below), an entirely hand-built hotel in St Lucia where each room has no outer wall and so is open to the ocean view - as well as having its own private infinity pool.

Giles finds that room service here is tougher than it seems, and Monica dives for lionfish, which they both serve to guests visiting especially to have their wedding on the beach.

Ending Tonight

Laochra Gael, 9.30pm, TG4

The series concludes with the story of Dermot Earley, named after his legendary father and determined to make a name for himself.

He did just that when he was at the heart of Kildare historic 1998 campaign while still in his teens. Sadly, that would be the highpoint of his football career.

In the following years he suffered dreadful injuries, he fought a cancer battle, and in 2010 he was dealt a severe blow with the death of his father.

Also finishing tonight, An Cumann (8.00pm, TG4) looks at Gaoth Dobhair United finally playing their final game of the 2019/20 season and club rugby returns in Kerry.
