UK TV on Friday 6th October

Porridge – BBC One, 21:30 

Porridge is one of the most successful BBC’s classic sitcom revivals and it comes back with a second season. For all of the fans of the old Porridge, this one is a must see. I am sure all of you older folks remember the old Porridge just like you remember Only Fools and Horses. Well, let me tell you something, the new Porridge is worth a try. So check it out and enjoy this high-quality sitcom revival.

American Hustle (2013) – Channel 4, 00:10

David O’Russell‘s movie, American Hustle, was nominated for ten Oscars, and more than 200 other awards all around the world. A con man, Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and his partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) have to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper) in his investigation. This leads them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia. Irving’s wife is played by Jennifer Lawrence. American Hustle is an interesting movie. It will not wow you at once, don’t expect the Hollywood in it. The movie has confused me since it is quite extraordinary since the main character isn’t a genius that knows it all, he is just human, like the rest of us.

Alien (1979) – Film4, 00:10 – Horror, Thriller, Sci-Fi

This is a classic, if you haven’t seen it, you must. If you have seen it, watch it again! Sigourney Weaver in one of her most remembered roles, as always, provides only the best quality acting in this suspense horror movie. You will be amazed by the amount of thrill that one movie can provide. Alien is one of the first horror/thriller sci-fi movies and it is a classic. For all those movie lovers, Alien is a great place to start if you haven’t watched it. It is an older movie but as such, the story gradually flows, introducing us to the complexity of characters and the predator they bring onboard.

The X Factor: Boot Camp – ITV, 20:15

It is time for the bootcamp stages in front of a live audience. People will see who has the potential and this is the last try to impress before the brutal Six Chair Challenge. Who knows what can happen with the judges’ thoughts and the opinion of the public. Be sure to check your favourites, this might be their last appearance. The X Factor is a great show that allows talents to show their worth and the public has their say, not just the judges. This is one of the most famous ITV TV shows.

UK Muppets Most Wanted (2014) – BBC One, 14:45

The Muppets are touring Europe when Kermit (Steve Whitmire) gets kidnapped and replaced by a doppelganger. Behind this evil plan is Ricky Gervais. The movie has great musical numbers and cool gags. I know this writer remembers the Muppets from his childhood, and I believe that these memories should be passed on to the next generation. What do you think?

Peter Moffat’s Sixties drama continues. In this episode, an American war reporter, Martha Franklin (Essie Davis) arrives and disrupts the delicate dynamic of the military base.

A beautiful movie starring Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig. When Walter’s job and of his friends is endangered, he goes on an amazing journey. Engage yourselves in an amazing journey of a somewhat strange and yet courageous and great person. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a gentle comedy filled with optimism and strength of spirit.

Dial M for Murder (1954) – BBC Two, 13:15 – Crime, Thriller

Directed by Hitchcock, this thriller is quite a suspense. Tony Wendice (Ray Milland) wants to see his wife Margot (Grace Kelly) murdered because she had an affair with a writer.
