TV shows worth watching this week: Criminal, Stath Lets Flats, Krypton

The Peaky Blinders finale, the return of Krypton and Disenchantment and the Between Two Ferns film are among our TV picks for this week…

We can’t imagine a much better way to spend an evening than watching the Bottom marathon on Gold on Saturday night, which probably says more about us than we’d care to admit.
