I’m not sure at all how Graham Norton is going to greet, much less treat, guest Mel Gibson, but it’ll be worth watching – especially with his Daddy’s Home 2 co-stars, Will Farrell and Mark Wahlberg, there for moral and comic support.

SERIES PREMIERE: This 10-part German series is produced, imported and presented today by Netflix, as part of its quest, in TV entertainment terms, of literal world domination.
