If you manage to tear yourself away from season 3 of House of Cards on Netflix this week, here are some programmes that may be worth catching!

Drugs Live: Cannabis On Trial
Channel 4, 22:00

Jon Snow (no, the other one) presents this in-depth look at the use of cannabis. During a six-month trial, the effects of the drug use are investigated as is the future of cannabis in terms of legalisation and widespread use.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
RTÉ One, 21:35

Starring Rooney Mara in the lead role as Lisbeth Salander, this thriller follows  the investigation into the disappearance of Harriet Vanger 40 years previous. The movie is directed by David Fincher who also worked on the Hollywood blockbuster Gone Girl.

Don’t Tell The Bride
RTÉ 2, 21:00

There’s a New York themed wedding in Offaly for Dean and Jenny this week! However, will the wedding even go ahead after the bride sees her dress…?!

The Graham Norton Show
BBC One 22:35

It would be hard to top last week’s amazing line-up on Graham’s couch – but it’s a close one! X-Factor star Cheryl Fernandez-Versini joins the funniest group you’ve ever seen; David Walliams, Jack Dee, Jennifer Saunders and Johnny Vegas to celebrate Comic Relief’s 30th birthday.

The Butcher Boy
3e, 23:00

Saturday night is movie night if you plan on staying in! This week there’s a great Irish flick on – The Butcher Boy is a tragicomic drama by Neil Jordan and tells the story of troubled Francis Brady whose strange behaviour takes a sinister turn for one of his neighbours…

Room to Improve
RTÉ One, 21:30

We barely remember a Sunday night without Dermot Bannon and Room to Improve basically has a cult following at this stage! This week, Pat and Marita Harold need Dermot’s help in designing a home for three generations of family – but they don’t think much of the ideas put forward!

Meteor Choice Music Prize
RTÉ2, 22:50
Join Eoghan McDermot and Blaithnaid Treacy for coverage of the 10th annual Meteor Choice Music Prize with interviews from Hozier, Sinead O'Connor and more. 



The ProposalRTÉ 2, Wednesday at 9.30pm 
Even if you don’t watch The Rose Of Tralee (and seeing as it’s consistently one of the top rated telly shows clearly SOME of you are!), you can’t have missed the classic moment from last year when one Rose was proposed to live on stage. She must have said “no, no, no” a hundred times (and sure looked like she meant it) but as this doc shows the couple did actually end up marrying. God loves a trier.

Mrs DoubtfireSky 1, Wednesday at 7.30pm
While his performances in Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting can be considered Robin William’s finest, there are many of us who remember him most fondly for tonight’s midweek movie. Playing a divorced dad who dresses as an elderly Scottish nanny in order to keep seeing his kids might sound odd on paper but worked its magic on screen with the perfect balance of both laugh out loud and heart-warming moments that the late comedian did better than anyone.

I Love You ManRTÉ 2, Friday at 9.35pm
Newly engaged Paul Rudd realises he has no mates to be Best Man at his wedding. So in an effort to find one before the big day he strikes up a bromance with the likeable but slightly mental Paul Segel. A comedy that delivers some genuinely hilarious one liners, worth a watch.

The X FactorUTV, Friday at 9pm
No that’s not a typo, you read that right, X Factor is on Friday nights now too! But just before you start freaking you’ll never get off the couch again fear not, it’s only for this week and next before we go to the Live Shows. Starting tonight, this weekend sees a triple bill of Bootcamp which includes the brutal Six Chair Challenge – and if the booing on Sunday’s sneak peak was anything to go by Cheryl could well be getting another P45 in the post…




50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy – Sky One, Monday at 9pm
So far in this series Baz has made his 71 year old mammy jump out of a plane, shoot him with a taser gun, go stunt car driving, charm a snake and gamble away her pension! Tonight the pair go to Florida where mum gets to wrestle with angry alligators and is then brought to a tattoo parlour – will she go through with the inking?!

Dallas – TV3, Monday at 10pm
Dallas is back with brand new episodes to finish out Series 3 which left us on a cliff-hanger with Southfork in flames. Pamela had just found out about John Ross’s affair with Emma and bizarrely asked to join them in a threesome but then started to have a fit after taking an overdose. Sue Ellen was back on the sauce and passed out in the fire with Bobby and Christopher returning as the fire took hold….

Oscar Pistorius: The Verdict – TV3, Thursday at 7.30pm
The verdict of the case that’s had us all gripped for weeks will be delivered today. This documentary looks back at the world’s most famous paralympian’s fall from grace and attempts to give the most complete picture yet of what happened on the night Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead.

It’s Complicated – FilmFour, Friday at 9pm
Romantic comedy where a mature couple end up having an affair years after they divorced. Worth a watch for the scene where Meryl Streep accidentally gets high off her own supply!



Harry at 30 – UTV, Tuesday at 8pm
The most eligible bachelor in the world (now Ryan Gosling is taken) turns the big three-oh this month, so UTV have made a documentary with contributions from his friends and army comrades to mark the big occasion. Wonder will they bring up the nekked partying in Vegas or the time he dressed up as a Nazi…?

Educating Joey Essex: Space Cadet – ITV2, Tuesday at 9pm
In tonight’s episode the former TOWIE star/complete eejit is sent to Space Camp to become an astronaut. And he also goes hunting for aliens, as you do. Must be great craic making this show.

Utterly Outrageous Celebrity Bodies – ITV2, Tuesday at 10pm
This countdown apparently celebrates “the extraordinary things stars have done to their bodies” – ?! So if you want to check out Courtney Stodden’s surgical enhancements or watch Kerry Katona as she undergoes liposuction then this is right up your street. Hmmm.

BIG – E4, Wednesday at 8pm
A kid goes to Funderland and wakes up the next day to find he has now become a 35-year-old Tom Hanks. Bizarre premise for a movie yet this is an absolute classic from the ‘80s as Tom gets to play with a gigantic toy piano and he also creates every youngsters’ dream apartment with arcade games, soda machines and a giant trampoline to boot!

The Good Wife – RTÉ One, Thursday at 11.05pm
Julianna Margulies just won her second Emmy for her role as Alicia Florrick in this absolutely addictive legal drama from the States. However fans be warned. If you’re following the series on RTÉ do NOT miss tonight as it is the most dramatic and shocking episode they’ve ever done. Be sure to have a box of Kleenex at the ready….


It’s time to hand in that notice, ladies, as Netflix have just announced what may just be the world’s greatest job EVER.

Netflix are looking for taggers from the UK and Ireland. But what is a tagger?

Well, a tagger is someone who uses their analytical mind to personalise our Netflix accounts. How does this happen? By watching hours and hours of Netflix, of course!
