Fight Club (TG4, 9.30pm)

Oh crap, we just talked about it. Well, since we’ve started, we’ll finish… David Fincher’s adaptation of the Chuck Palaniuk novel, starring Brad Pitt and Ed Norton, is one of those rare films that beats the book it was based on.


Everybody’s talking about: John Oliver

Another week, another hilarious bit from Last Week Tonight – although he’s off for Easter, John Oliver managed to deliver a brilliant rant on the subject of Cadbury Creme Eggs. Genius.
