Virgin Media Store round-up
Whether you’re after a deliriously good drama, a critically acclaimed comedy or some celebrated science fiction, there’s an abundance of top-notch telly available to buy on the Virgin Media Store – and we really want to shout about some of the latest offerings.
Here you’ll find a proper feast of unmissable entertainment, and we think it’s only right that you take a look at six fantastic shows hand-picked by us that definitely deserve your attention…
1. Silicon Valley
Nobody ever said building a tech empire from the bottom up was easy. In this sharp, satirical comedy series, five young men based in California’s electronic epicentre try to make their start-up company a success, but it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there. Are they ready for the buckets upon buckets of cash that could potentially come their way? What do you think?
Imagine Walt Disney World with killer androids and you’d be close to imagining one of the most talked-about television dramas of recent times. It’s based on the cult 1970s movie and features Anthony Hopkins and Thandie Newton among its all-star cast, so prepare to be dazzled and unnerved in equal measure as a Western-themed amusement park spirals out of control.

Step right this way for some seriously hearty laughs.
4. Here And Now
Like your laughs with a bit of an edge? This thought-provoking US comedy drama from the creator of Six Feet Under should do the trick. With a family made up of adopted children from Somalia, Colombia and Vietnam – plus a biological child of their own – a philosophy professor (The Shawshank Redemption’s Tim Robbins) and his therapist wife (The Piano’s Holly Hunter) must try to hold their multiracial brood together when one of the kids starts experiencing strange, unsettling visions.
Who knew a series about a married couple breaking up could be so funny? When Frances (Sex And The City’s Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Sideways’ Thomas Haden Church) decide to part ways after its revealed Frances has been having an affair, they try to keep things as amicable as possible for the sake of their kids. But maintaining an air of normality isn’t going to be easy – particularly when the lawyers get involved…
6. DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow

Need to geek out a little at the end of a long week? Then this instalment in DC’s TV universe is for you. Uniting characters from across the different comics, it’s dark, funny and decidedly tongue in cheek, with costumes that are literally out of this world. Plus, no one could ever have anticipated that when Rory (Arthur Darvill) got lost in time in Doctor Who, he’d end up inspiring a disparate group of superheroes to unite against some world-destroying bad guys…
