Picks of the week

Peaky Blinders, Thursday, BBC2, 9pm

Ahh, that's right - the return of our favourite Corkman, Cillian Murphy, as 1920's Birmingham Gangster Thomas Shelby. This season promises to see the family as bigger players on an International game board, but with more power comes more problems, of course. The good news is that if you haven't seen any of the Peaky Blinders series' to date, you can catch up over on Netflix.

 

Veep, Monday, Sky Atlantic, 10pm

Season 5 of Veep has returned to our screens on Sky Atlantic. This political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus follows former Senator Selina Meyer and her staff as she accepts the position of Vice-President in the White House, and is suddenly faced by the many challenges of the Washington political chessboard.

 

Grayson Perry All Man, Thursday, Channel 4, 10pm

Double BAFTA award-winning TV presenter and Turner Prize winning artist Grayson Perry has an interesting perspective on the idea of masculinity. Over the course of this three part series, he injects himself into a number of ultra-male worlds to further explore the subject. In episode one, Perry spends time with a group of cage fighters.

 

Online pick of the week

Marseille, Netflix from Thursday

This brand new French series created by Dan Franck starring Gérard Depardieu sees former mayor of Marseille, Robert Taro enter into a war of succession with his former protégé turned rival Lucas Barres. It looks superb and has been marked as one of highlights of the high-profile Paris TV Fest.

 

Film of the week

Terminator 2, Tuesday, Film4, 11.15pm

The first Terminator movie brought international stardom to both Arnold Schwarzenegger and writer/director James Cameron, but they upped the anti even more on the second installment. What's not to love about watching the T-800 save mother and son Sarah and John Connor from the wrath of evil robots - and the special effects were so good at the time that the movie even won four Oscars in technical categories.
