The sun is shining, the birds are singing… and we strongly encourage you to stay inside and watch lots of TV! We are back with your No More Workhorse TV Picks of the Week. This one is a doozy.
Ghosts – RTE 2, Monday at 9 pm
Now entering its third series, Ghosts is slow-burning its way to becoming one of the BBC’s most successful comedies in years. From the minds behind the smash-hit Horrible Histories, Ghost follows a young couple who have moved into a house which is haunted by an unruly group of less than scary poltergeists.
Pharmacy Road (or Tour de Pharmacy in America) – Sky Comedy, Monday at 9 pm
A mockumentary about doping in cycling, Pharmacy Road follows a fake 1982 road race where every single competitor is doping. Starring Andy Samberg, John Cena, Daveed Diggs and many more, this promises to be an absolute riot.
Tan France: Beauty and the Bleach – BBC 2, Wednesday at 9 pm
Colourism is a form of oppression where you are judged not only for the colour of your skin but for the shade of it. Tan France, a stylist and presenter (Queer Eye), has been a victim of colourism his whole life and has bleached his own skin when he was 9.
In this programme, Tan learns about the origins of this practice and tries to figure out why so many people turn to it at some point in their lives.
A League of their Own Road Trip: Dingle to Dover – Sky Max, Thursday at 10 pm
Baring the absent James Corden (yay!), the LOTO boys have decided to go on a road trip across the UK and Ireland. In this final episode of the mini-series, the crew will wrap up their journey down in the very south of England.
Here We Go – BBC One, Friday at 8:30 pm
Starring Jim Howick (Horrible Histories and Ghosts) and Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd), this new sitcom follows the Jessop Family as they traverse the everyday palavers that life throws at them. A light comedy that promises to be fun for all the family.
