This is the telly everyone will be talking about tomorrow. rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about today and talking about tomorrow.

Feile – An Turas Go Tipp (RTÉ One, 8.30pm)

The Trip to Tipp has become legendary in Irish music folklore. This programme attempts to capture the magic of what happened between 1990 and 1994 in Thurles, when a generation of young people laid siege to the town, desperate for an escape from their mundane lives.

Inglourious Basterds (RTÉ 2, 9.35pm)

Quentin Tarantino’s wartime adventure, featuring his favourite dialogue in the opening scene, is a must-see. Starring Irishman Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Melanie Laurent, Diane Kruger, and an Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz, the movie follows a band of soldiers who are on a mission to kill as many Nazis as possible and become involved in a plan to blow up Hitler. Bizarre and brilliant.

The Hangover Part II (Virgin Media One, 9.00pm)

The laugh-out-loud comedy sequel sees Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, and Zach Galifianakis reunite in Bangkok for another stag weekend. Inevitably, the gang haven’t learnt their lessons and once again they must piece together the previous night’s insane adventures.

US Streaming service Hulu has commissioned a new season with eight new episodes.

The show will be set five years after the 2014 film, but there’s no news yet on whether her other cast members will return.
