TV Highlights for Friday, December 8th…

LEAVE THE WORLD BEHIND

A family’s vacation is upended when two strangers arrive at night, seeking refuge from a cyberattack that grows more terrifying by the minute, forcing everyone to come to terms with their places in a collapsing world.

In this apocalyptic thriller from award-winning writer and director Sam Esmail, Amanda (Julia Roberts) and her husband Clay (Ethan Hawke), rent a luxurious home for the weekend with their kids, Archie (Charlie Evans) and Rose (Farrah Mackenzie).

Their vacation is soon upended when two strangers — G.H. (Mahershala Ali) and his daughter Ruth (Myha’la) — arrive in the night, bearing news of a mysterious cyberattack and seeking refuge in the house they claim is theirs. The two families reckon with a looming disaster that grows more terrifying by the minute, forcing everyone to come to terms with their places in a collapsing world.

Based on the National Book Award-nominated novel by Rumaan Alam.

Streaming from today on NETFLIX

BREEDERS

Starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard the fourth and final series continues. It’s five years since we last saw the Worsley family, caught up in the dramatic events at the end of season three — Paul and Ally on the verge of splitting up, Paul’s parents Jim (Alun Armstrong) and Jackie (Joanna Bacon) in turmoil, Luke finding a new relationship and Ava mending an old one.

Series four of Breeders brings the biggest parenting challenge that Paul and Ally have ever faced, as 18-year-old Luke drops a bombshell at Christmas dinner that will change everyone’s lives forever. No longer in Luke’s shadow, 16-year-old Ava experiences her own bombshell moment as she meets and immediately falls for the charismatic Holly (Jessie Williams). Paul and Ally continue to try, fail and try again as they face these latest parenting challenges, while also having to support the increasingly troubled Jim and Jackie.

In tonight’s episode as Paul and Ally try to help Luke, who is struggling with being both a dad and a student, they find they have very different ideas about the best way forward; Jackie’s condition is becoming more noticeable; Jim is determined to help out.

Sky Comedy, 10.15 pm

DISPATCHES

Christmas dinner is the highlight for many on Christmas Day, alongside the royal message from King Charles III, Top of the Pops and whatever disaster is to befall the residents of Walford in EastEnders. However, it may not just be the fictional characters of Albert Square suffering.

In the run-up to Christmas, nine million turkeys will be sold across Britain. Dispatches investigate food safety concerns at one producer.
