We all want to be out making the most of the sunshine… until it gets too hot to do anything, as it’s forecast to be this week.

But fear not. If you burn easily, or would rather be wrapped up in a chilly basement flat than sweating it out on the pavements, we have your weekend covered with the best TV shows out now.

This week is a varied one, with the sentimental The Summer I Turned Pretty floating onto Amazon Prime Video for all the romantics out there.

Switch over to God’s Favourite Idiot on Netflix for something more lighthearted if you’re looking to take the Sunday blues away.

And if you want a historical rumpus then why not settle into Becoming Elizabeth on Starz Play?

It’s all happening this week on the box.

Here are all of our TV picks of the week:

Amazon Prime

The Summer I Turned Pretty

A shallow summer flick (Picture: Prime Video / Dana Hawley)

Because being pretty is what it’s all about, right?

This fluffy teen romance (above) about a girl called Belly is full of perfect skin, gorgeous interiors and angsty/cute flirting.

For those in the mood for a shallow summer fling.

Available Friday.


God’s Favourite Idiot

(Picture: Vince Valitutti / Netflix)

An average Joe gets struck by lighting and – boom – he becomes omnipotent. Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy pray for our laughs – and our souls.

Available today.

The Wagner Method

(Picture: Benoît Linder)

No, not about the opera bloke, this Wagner is a handsome hypochondriac of a French police captain who goes wobbly at the sight of blood, bones, sneezes… pretty much anything.

Gil Alma keeps him the right side of eccentric and his partnership with pathologist Elise (Olivia Cote) gives this Strasbourg-set series an easy charm.

Available Friday.

Starz Play

Becoming Elizabeth

(Picture: Nick Briggs / 2021 Starz Entertainment)

The Tudors have surely been dramatised more than any other dynasty and here’s an addition to the canon, focusing on the power vacuum following Henry VIII’s death.

Alicia von Rittberg is the young Elizabeth, destined to become England’s queen – but not before a lot of scheming and backstabbing in mullioned corridors.

Episode one available now, new episodes on Sundays.
