Geek shows and movies on UK TV in the coming week

Gaye cleaves the best geek TV & movies out of the coming week with the Mighty Sword Of Dobber©...

Gary Cole as Lumbergh in Office Space

The pickings are slim this week for TV start-ups of new shows and series, which might put unfair pressure on the only new show in our radar range: Psychoville.

Billed as a comedy thriller written by and starring The League Of Gentlemen gents Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, its first episode airs on BBC2, Thursday 18 June at 10:00pm. Here’s hoping it can stand the bullseye focus it’s bound to get in an otherwise lean week. We’ll have a review of the début shortly after it airs, so check back and see what we think of it and let us know your verdict.

This may be a good time for a short reminder that you can force our alphabetical movie highlights listing to do your bidding with your browser’s built-in Find function. You can target and zero in on all films showing on a particular day by searching by date. The numerical date is in every entry, so barring our occasional flubs and chubby thumb blunders, you should be able to whizz through the list by calendar date pretty quickly.

Now, on to that list, which, as always, is subject to last second changes, so check your local listings as clocks tick closer to airtimes.
