Theme Time : Miike Snow - Friday Night Dinner

Well the good news is this Friday at 10pm on Channel 4 sees the return of Friday Night Dinner, the excellent sitcom by Robert Popper about a Jewish family and their increasingly disastrous titular evening meals.

Starring Tamsin Greig, Simon Bird, Paul Ritter and Tom Rosenthal as the Goodman family and the scene stealer that is Mark Heap as their neighbour Jim (below) it is highly recommended, especially if you like your comedy tightly contained and wince inducing in the Mike Leigh mould.

The commencement of series 3 gives me the chance to share the theme tune, which is Animal by Miike Snow

Friday night tele is looking good comedy wise thanks to Robert Weide's 60s set gentle comedy Mr Sloane starring Nick Frost and a repeat of Stephen Merchant's Hello Ladies on Sky Atlantic from 9 and now this on 4 from 10.
