What to watch on TV tonight: Saturday

The TV everyone will be talking about tomorrow.

Image: Decent Films rounds up the TV shows that you’ll be tweeting about tonight and talking about tomorrow. 

Calvary (RTÉ2, 9.15pm)

This blacker-than-black drama stars pretty much every Irish actor – Brendan Gleeson, Chris O’Dowd, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, Pat Shortt and Domhnall Gleeson all make appearances. The story centres on a priest (Brendan Gleeson) who receives a death threat during Confession. Who is after him? #calvary

Sicario (Channel 4, 9pm)

Emily Blunt plays an FBI agent who joins an elite task force charged with preventing drugs from crossing the border from Mexico into the US. This is obviously a very quiet job where nothing bad or violent ever happens. #sicario

The Voice UK (TV3, 8pm)

It’s the third round of blind auditions, with coaches Tom Jones,, Olly Murs and Jennifer Hudson each hoping to find some raw talents. #thevoiceuk


Everybody’s talking about: Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson

So Jamie Dornan was the one cracking out the hilarious stories on Graham Norton last night, but Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren had a little tale of their own to tell.

They were quite a serious couple in the 1980s (even living together for a while), and had a lovely little reunion on the couch. A couple of class acts.
