  • Totally rad

    The latest video game treatment to reach our screens is Fallout, Prime’s take on the beloved post-nuclear RPGs. Ben Allan puts on his Pip-Boy and runs a scan.

  • Talented indeed

    Andrew Scott is absolutely spellbinding as the eponymous character in Ripley, a scintillating and noirish adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel that leaves Matt Damon’s 1999 version in the shade, writes Lucy Mangan.

  • Pistol-packer

    A fun, action-packed romp about super-powered highway robbery, Renegade Nell is like Gentleman Jack with added swagger. And its star could not be more magnificent, writes Lucy Mangan.

  • Problematic

    Not content with turning one borderline unfilmable set of novels into highly watchable TV, the showrunners behind Game of Thrones have repeated the trick with the deeply complex sci-fi series 3 Body Problem, reports Lucy Mangan.

  • Power-full stuff

    The sparky comedy Extraordinary, which takes superhero shenanigans to sublime heights of silliness, is back — and this time, it’s as profound as it is crude. Brace yourself for a body-splitting, time-rewinding, dead-communing romp, writes Rebecca Nicholson.

  • TV series rescues ‘One Day’

    Thirteen years ago, David Nicholls’ best-selling book was butchered by a film starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. Hollie Richardson, of The Guardian, reports how Netflix turned a box-office disaster into TV dynamite.

  • Adept adaptation

    Strap yourself in for Shogun, a wild adventure in feudal Japan. This lavish adaptation of the classic samurai novel is beautiful, intellectual fare that amply rewards your full attention. But be warned: it’s gruesome from the get-go, writes Rebecca Nicholson.

  • Fits and starts

    Space thriller Constellation is yet another well-produced Apple science fiction series — but it will occasionally make you jump out of your skin. It’s an unsettling, disorienting watch, but with a tendency towards lapses in energy, writes Rebecca Nicholson.

  • Fashion faux pas

    This simplistic, grandiose drama about French couture history treats the second world war as an inconvenience to fashion. Even Juliette Binoche and Ben Mendelsohn can’t save it, laments Lucy Mangan.

  • Ageing like wine

    Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm may have mellowed over time, but it’s like going to see a veteran rock band who’ve still got it. At this point, the genius flows effortlessly, writes Jack Seale.
