Searching for your next TV obsession? Of course you are. And the next few days sees a plethora of TV shows and films to quench your thirst. 

There’s a chance for a romp around Paris with our favourite new French crime drama, a romcom, of sorts, about life in Covid-times and the start of a month of football for us all to get absorbed in. 

And so, without any further ado, here is everything we recommend watching this weekend.

LUPIN 

Mon dieu! Our favourite daring Frenchman is back for more brilliant crime drama. The end of part one saw Assane Diop’s (Omar Sy) son, Raoul, go missing…go missing while on a family trip to the beach. Connected, we presume, to Assane’s jewellery heist at the Louvre seeking revenge for his father’s suicide, after he was accused of a crime he didn’t commit. 

Part two picks up straight after Raoul’s kidnap as Assane tries to track down his son and continue to seek vengeance for the historic wrongdoings to his family.

SKATER GIRL 

If you’re in the market for an inspiring coming of age story this Netflix film set in a remote village in Rajasthan, India, might hit the spot. It’s about Prerna (Rachel Saanchita Gupta) who discovers a passion for skateboarding after the arrival of a girl from London.

ENGLAND V CROATIA

It remains to be seen if it will be coming home, but there’s always something exciting about a big football competition, especially after the dearth of live sports we’ve endured over the last year.

 The England team make their debut on Sunday, taking on Croatia, under the care of Gareth Southgate, who we must also report has ditched his famous waistcoat for this year’s competition.

THE RETURN: LIFE AFTER ISIS

This documentary will make for powerful viewing. It gets access, for the first time, to a group of Western women who dedicated their lives to ISIS, including Londoner Shamima Begum, who left the UK age 15, for Syria. 

Directed by Alba Sotorra, it was filmed with an all-female crew, many of whom were young Kurdish women who also lost family and friends in the war against ISIS.

HORIZON SPECIAL: THE VACCINE 

With over 40 million people having received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, this special should make for timely viewing. 

It follows scientists around the world as they race to find a vaccine for this disease no one had seen before and includes the work of Teresa Lambe and Katie Ewer, leading immunologists for the Oxford/ AstraZeneca vaccine. We have much to be thankful for.

TOGETHER

Watching a drama about coronavirus while we’re still living through it might be too close to home for some, but with Sharon Horgan and James McAvoy as its stars we’re prepared to take a punt. 

The one-off film starts in the early days of the lockdown through to the present day and charts the pair’s marriage as they navigate the new world and are forced to confront their relationship, which had become mutually contemptuous.
