Monday 3rd June

Breaking Bad Blu-ray

The first half of series five is out on Blu-ray, with Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston returning to the Emmy Award winning show. With Jesse back on his side, Walt's tranformation into a drug kingpin is a done deal.

Game of Thrones Sky Atlantic HD, 9pm

The Rains of Castamere. It's the night of the infamous Red Wedding: Edmund Tully and Roslin Frey marry, but the whole event takes a brutal turn as the Starks, Lannisters and Freys clash. Expect some shocking deaths.

Tuesday 4th June

Hannibal Sky Living HD, 9pm

Coquilles. Hannibal attempts to drive a wedge between Will and Jack, while the team search for a serial killer known as the 'angel-maker'. All preview images of the actual case are far too gruesome, so here's a nice picture of Hannibal throwing a dinner party for the Crawfords (played by real-life couple Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres).

 

Wednesday 5th June

Mad Men Sky Atlantic HD, 10pm

A Tale of Two Cities. The two cities in question are New York and Los Angeles, but more importantly, the firm gets a much needed name-change, while Joan tries to close a client herself. John Slattery directs.
