Ladies and Gentlemen, Bridgerton is back…well on 25th March it is at least. And this second season is all about Lord Bridgerton’s quest to find himself a suitable wife. A bit of drama later, and the odd saucy scene, is he gonna find the one?

Need some thrills? Archive 81 will hit the spot. This new one from Netflix follows archivist and VHS enthusiast Dan, who becomes hooked on a 90’s mystery when restoring old footage tapes. Just do yourself a favour and get this on the box now.
TVDinner | Get on this cult curry pop-up then get on your sofa and binge ’em all.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but not as you 90’s peeps know it. Now, this is a story all about how Will’s life got flipped-turned upside down, and unlike the original, this reimagining digs a little deeper into his journey from West Philadelphia to the town of Bel-Air. There’s not quite as many lols, more darker comedy vibes, but it’s a good’un nonetheless. Catch this one on Sky and Now TV from the 14th Feb.
TVDinner | We’re big fans of the fresh prince, but even bigger fans of Marugame Udon.
Foreign language films are having a moment and we’re here for it. And Netflix is expanding their repertoire with this newbie, The Journalist. It follows a determined female reporter working to expose political crimes and the scandals happening in Japanese society. We’re gripped already.

Sound the klaxon, the final season of After Life is coming to Netflix on 14th Feb. Tony’s still not over the loss of his wife, but there’s a lot of ground to cover before it comes to a wrap. Is there gonna be a happy ever after?
TVDinner | It might be the end for After Life, but it’s just the beginning for Temper‘s new Shoreditch spot.
All filmed in a single take, Boiling Point is a film which follows London chef Andy who’s on a knife edge, both professionally and personally. From accommodating off-menu requests from influencers to dealing with food critics showing up out of the blue to tackling the issue of overworked staff to health and safety officers…there’s A LOT going on. A great watch and, of course, Stephen Graham is as amazing as ever.
TVDinner | Get your pinny on and whip up this Caribbean green seasoning curry.

TVDinner | Tackling another big issue is Mitch Tonk’s new sustainable seafood service.
PAM & TOMMY
It rocked the tabloids back in the 1990s and it’s doing it again with Lily James’ transformation (anyone else hardly recognise her?!). Based on the true scandal, Pam & Tommy tells the story of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s leaked sex tape and it’s every bit as rock’n’roll as you can imagine. Also starring Seth Rogan and Sebastian Stan, this eight part series lands on our screens (streaming on Hulu) at the beginning of Feb.
TVDinner | You’ve got all month to wait for this one, so load up on those Veganuary specials.
Based on his experiences of volunteering in a prison, Rob Williams (also the writer of Killing Eve) has given us this fabulous new comedy-drama. It follows newbie officer Rose as she joins an all-male prison and deals with the everyday delights that her new role has to offer. It’s dark, a little bit dramatic and definitely one you’re gonna be laughing at. Find it on Channel 4.
TVDinner | Steal a load of this deal…HALF PRICE PIZZA at the new Happy Face Pizza.
DEATH TO 2021
Say goodbye to the sh*t show that was 2021 with this new dark comedy Netflix doc. Mixing real news footage with scripted sketches, it revisits everything last year had to offer with the likes of Hugh Grant, William Jackson Harper and Joe Keery featuring in it too. It’ll make you laugh, and then cry because it’s sadly true…
TVGuide | Out with the old and in with the NEW, it’s 2022’s best restaurant openings.
The fourth and final (*cries*) season of Killing Eve is coming. And in case you can’t remember where we left off, Villanelle and Eve were walking away from each other right before turning around for one last look before the end credits rolled. Obvs Villanelle is gonna continue to kill and Eve is not gonna quit being obsessed with her, as for everything else…we’ll find out on 27th February.

RETURN TO HOGWARTS
It’s been twenty years since the first Harry Potter film (we can’t believe it either) and the band are getting back together for a trip down memory lane. Dan, Emma and Rupert will be joined with the likes of Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Imelda Staunton and Tom Felton in this very magical and long overdue reunion.
TVDinner | Whatever you’re eating, don some iconic London restaurant merch whilst watching this one.
You wouldn’t think a re-telling of a real life murderous couple could be so morbidly humorous, kind of endearing and light hearted all-in-one. But of course is it, it stars the legends Olivia Coleman and David Thewlis alongside plenty of other talent too. It’ll make you think, make you laugh, make you tear up a bit…it’s a stunner.
TVDinner | The best things we’ve watched deserves the best things we’ve eaten this month.
DON’T LOOK UP
This new Netflix flick is all about two astronomers that try to warn humankind of a planet-killing comet hurtling toward Earth. And the response from a distracted world? Meh. BUT the real reason we’re watching this is the cast, obvs. It’s got Leonardo Di Caprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Jonah Hill, Timothée Chalamet, Mark Rylance, Cate Blanchett AND Ariana Grande. Deep breath everyone.
TVDinner | Stock up your stash of frozen dumplings and thank us later.
Yes, it’s the fella from Fifty Shades but no Jamie Dornan isn’t doing anything funky in the bedroom in this new BBC drama. He’s taking on a completely different role as a nameless British man who wakes up in the Aussie Outback after being run off the road by a big truck and now has no memory of who he is. Will he figure out who he is before his enemies catch him?
TVDinner | Order in one of these vegan meal kits to chow down on whilst you tuck into this one.
EMILY IN PARIS
Emily in Paris is BACK this holiday season and she’s bringing her banging wardrobe and shocking Franglais with her. Expect love triangles, more faux pas and Emily finding herself in a spot of trouble career-wise. Yes it’s cheesy, yes it’s cliche but j’adore.
TVDinner | There’s nothing quite like Emily in Paris and there’s nothing quite like these one dish wonders.
THE LOST DAUGHTER
Anything Olivia Coleman stars in, you bet we’ll watch. And this new one sees her play Leda, a woman who suddenly becomes fixated on a young mother whilst on her hols. Before you know it, memories from the past (and their consequences) are coming back to haunt her. Written and directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal and also starring Jessie Buckley, Dakota Johnson and Paul Mescal, it’s defo one to watch.
TVDinner | ‘Tis the season to enjoy yourself, so pop along to one of these new restaurant openings before whacking this on the box.
