Best shows to binge tonight

LET'S be honest: Free-to-air TV between Friday night and Sunday prime time can be slim pickings at times, full of faded re-runs and movies you've seen a gazillion times.

But this weekend is littered with binge-worthy gems waiting to be discovered.

Right now, we're obsessed with female-led crime dramas, the breathtaking New York vogue scene and a new French thriller that explores the seedy Paris few ever see: the underground sewers.

KILLING EVE

Killing Eve is so much more than just a simple spy show. It's a game of cat and mouse, a character drama and a wicked comedy all rolled into one. Sandra Oh shines as MI5 officer Eve Polastri who's tasked to track down a cold-blooded assassin, curiously named Villanelle (Jodie Comer). Be prepared to be amused, revolted and infuriated in equal measure.

MARCELLA

Marcella centres on the psychological struggles of a Metropolitan police officer at crisis point in her personal life. It's written, directed and produced by Swedish screenwriter Hans Rosenfeldt (the man behind The Bridge) so expect some seriously dark twists. Anna Friel is sensational, as always, in the title role.

COUNTERPART

Set in the captivating world of espionage, intrigue and government conspiracies, this 10-part series follows Howard (J.K. Simmons), a low level employee at a Berlin-based spy agency. When he discovers his organisation is hiding a gateway to a parallel dimension, Howard's life is turned upside down … and the only man he can trust is Prime, his near-identical 'counterpart'. Sounds trippy? You have no idea.
