Culture picks: Three things worth watching this weekend

Culture picks: Three things worth watching this weekend

Whether you’re staying in or going out, the big and small screen has something for everyone. Jennifer McShane picks her top three recommendations. 


ON NETFLIX:

Bodyguard

This six-part series from Jed Mercurio dominated conversation, ratings and awards to such an extent that no other show stood a chance – it gave the BBC its biggest ratings hit in a decade. It centres on tormented protagonist David Budd (played by a brooding Richard Madden in a multi-award-winning role) an army veteran with PTSD now working as a police officer, assigned to guard the home secretary, Julia Montague. Every episode features plot-twists and so much drama – it is one of the best series in recent years.

Bodyguard is available to stream on Netflix now

ON THE BIG SCREEN:

Dumbo

Struggling circus owner Max Medici (an energetic Danny DeVito) enlists a former star Max (Colin Farrell) and his two children to care for Dumbo, a baby elephant born with oversized ears. When the family discovers that the animal can fly, it soon becomes the main attraction — bringing in huge audiences and revitalizing the run-down circus. The elephant’s magical ability also draws the attention of V.A. Vandevere (Burton regular Michael Keaton), an entrepreneur who wants to showcase Dumbo in his latest, larger-than-life entertainment venture. Also starring an enigmatic Eva Green, it is Burton’s safest – and his sweetest – film.

Dumbo is in Irish cinemas nationwide now

ON TV:

Game of Thrones

Its final series is neigh and Game of Thrones fans are eagerly anticipating the eighth season next month. Sky Atlantic have begun to show the most popular episodes and a two-hour catch-up on all that has happened so far so that you’re up to speed before it all kicks off on April 14. Airing on Saturday and Sunday evening, with all seven seasons available to stream on Sky Atlantic on Demand or NowTV, who will, at last, take the Iron Throne? We won’t have to wait too much longer to find out.

Game of Thrones seasons 1-7 are available to stream and watch on Sky Atlantic, or you can stream on NowTV
