Damon Wayans Jr., Amber Stevens West and Felix Mallard star in a this comedy about a 30-something, happily married couple who begin to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when a young pop star drawn to their super-ordinary suburban life unexpectedly moves in with them.

Jake, an accountant, and his dream wife, Claire, a restaurant and bar designer, are very comfortably settled into their marriage, enjoying evenings together on the couch watching TV and scheduling time to change their outgoing voicemail message.

Their tame routine gets a makeover when Jake's client, exuberant music superstar Cooper James, arrives on their doorstep looking for refuge from the paparazzi following a high-profile break-up with his girlfriend.

Jamie kicks off the season with his super-fast peachy pork chops, a seriously speedy veg dish. Also on the menu is the perfect fish dish for when you're in a hurry – smoky pancetta cod. A super-simple Asian-inspired snack, and a timesaving favourite – the crispy garlicky chicken.

If you think you haven't got time to cook – think again.

BattleBots 8

Much like a mechanical boxing match, the two robots compete in a three-minute round inside an enclosed arena with the goal of destroying or disabling their opponent.

Discovery's revival will bring some favourite bots, including 2016 champion Tombstone, along with Minotaur, Chomp, Witch Doctor, Bronco, Bombshell, Bite Force and Yeti.
