Geektown’s Top 5 Shows To Watch On UK TV In March 2017!
We’re into our third month of 2017, and the great tv is showing no signs of stopping! This month we have epic brand new drama on Sky Atlantic, the return of solid crime drama to Alibi, the BBC’s flagship car show back for a 24th series, and the final defender making his appearance! Here are our top picks for tv shows coming to the UK in March 2017!
Big Little Lies, Season 1 – Sky Atlantic – 13th March 2017 at 9pm
Big Little Lies is a dark comedy-drama from David E. Kelley, the man behind Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, and Goliath. The series stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman & Shailene Woodley, and is a story of conflicts, secrets, betrayals, and murder, in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California. With an epic, A list cast, and coming from a brilliant writer, it’s sure to be one to watch.
Quantico, Season 2 – Alibi – 2nd March 2017 at 9pm
Whilst Alex (Priyanka Chopra) may have cleared her name, that didn’t stop her getting fired by the FBI. But rather than having a show about her moping around in her PJs, the new season sees Parrish recruited to the CIA, and now going through training at “The Farm”, the CIA’s mysterious training facility…
Top Gear, Series 24 – BBC Two – 5th March 2017 at 8pm
Top Gear is back for a 24th season from the 5th March at 8pm on BBC2, with a newly tweaked presenting line up of Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid, and thankfully not a Chris Evans in sight. This season include a race across Kazakhstan, the gang tackling old-school motorsport in Cuba, and a blast through America’s wild west in the latest convertible supercars. I’ve got high hoped that this line up will work, so please don’t let me down!
Lethal Weapon – ITV – 3rd March 2017 at 9pm
Next we have Lethal Weapon, a tv remake which actually does the film franchise justice. Coming to ITV from the 3rd March 2017 at 9pm, it sees Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans step into the roles of Riggs and Murtaugh in a funny, and action packed update of the classic movie franchise. Also, make sure you check out our Geektown Radio podcast from on the 7th of March, as we have an exclusive interview with Keesha Sharp who plays the Roger Murtaugh’s wife, Trish.
Marvel’s Iron Fist – Netflix – 17th March 2017
And finally, we have Marvel’s Iron Fist. The last of The Defenders to join Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage on Netflix from the 17 March 2017. Finn Jones stars as the long-thought-dead billionaire Danny Rand, who returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist…
