Catch-up TV guide: from Mr Sloane to Prey

TV: Mr Sloane

Like Nick Helm's BBC3 comedy Uncle, this period sitcom from Sky Atlantic begins with a botched suicide attempt, but (as with Uncle) the tone lightens significantly from there. Nick Frost plays the titular Sloane, a man out of time in a swinging 60s, separated from his wife and out of work, but ploughing on regardless. Created by Curb Your Enthusiasm alum Robert B Weide, it boasts a supporting cast including Peter Serafinowicz and Olivia Colman. Ahead of its televised premiere next week, Sky subscribers can catch episode one from Thursday via its On Demand service.

TV: Love For Sale With Rupert Everett

Rupert Everett's two-part survey of the lives of sex workers hasn't been to everyone's taste, with some critics lauding Everett's bold take on the topic and others suggesting that Love For Sale has blithely overlooked the damage done by the prostitution industry. Make up your own mind over on 4oD, though be warned, the show is certifiably Not Safe For Work.


Video: Food Club

Wannabe gourmands Aziz Ansari (Parks And Recreation), Eric Wareheim (Tim And Eric) and Jason Woliner (Human Giant) have created Food Club, a webseries in which the trio dress up in naval uniforms and hand out plaques to deserving diners, restaurants and supper clubs. It's a stick-thin premise, but Wareheim's weirdness and Ansari's frenzied mock-materialism make for an entertaining comic combo, with Woliner cast as the dim-witted butt of their many jokes. The first episode is available to view on Wareheim's YouTube channel, with future instalments to come.

TV: The Good Wife

Shock developments don't come much bigger than the one this long-running legal drama pulled in its most recent episode, a twist that left viewers gasping and TV recappers either fuming or marvelling at the show's boldness. We're not going to spoil things for you here, but needless to say, if you've lost touch with The Good Wife in recent seasons, now's a good time to get reacquainted. Recent episodes from the show's current run – regarded by many critics as its best – can be seen over on 4oD.


TV: Prey

With its lurching camera work and bruising tone, this three-part thriller, which sees Jon Simm's DS trying to clear his name over the murder of his wife and child while also evading capture, might just be the least ITV-like series ever seen on the channel. Ahead of Monday's finale, get up to speed on the ITV Player.
