TV round-up: 10/04/15 – 16/04/15


The Edge‘s TV round-up is back and this week looks to be an amazing week for television. If you’re looking for some light comedy we’ve got the return of Louie starring comedian Louis C.K. and Spike’s new show that is based on Jimmy Fallon’s original Tonight Show challenge, Lip Sync Battle. However what we’ve all been waiting for is finally here: season five of Game of Thrones and Netflix’s new gritty Daredevil.

Daredevil: “Marvel’s Daredevil” is a live action series that follows the journey of attorney Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) who in a tragic accident was blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses. Murdock sets up practice in his old neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York where he now fights against injustice as a respected lawyer by day and masked vigilante at night. Watch it today on Netflix.

Reckless: Ambitious Chicago defence lawyer Jamie Sawyer relocates to the South Carolina city of Charleston, just in time to represent disgraced female cop Lee Anne Marcus, who has become involved in a police sex scandal that threatens to shake Charleston to its core. Taking a stand for Lee Anne, Jamie clashes with newly appointed city attorney Roy Rayder, but their charged conflicts in the courtroom might hide a deeper connection between the pair. American legal drama, starring Anna Wood and Cam Gigandet. Tune in today on Alibi at 9pm.

The Graham Norton Show: The irrepressible host returns with another sofa full of stars, including The Hunger Games and Fortitude actor Stanley Tucci, who reveals another string to his bow when he talks about his new cookery book, The Tucci Table.

Britain’s Got Talent: Ant and Dec return with a fresh search for the nation’s brightest new star, as a wide assortment of contestants, from a hypnotising dog act to a girl with a gravity-defying hula hoop, compete for the chance to win £250,000 and a slot at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.

Tatau: Upon landing on the South Pacific island of Manutaki, backpacker Kyle is surprised to discover his self-designed tattoo provokes strange reactions from the locals.
