Ted film

Display the image in full-screen mode.

Seth MacFarlane reprises his role as the foul-mouthed, animated teddy bear who was brought to life in the 2012 movie. The goal of this prequel series seems to be mocking common themes seen in family sitcoms from the 1990s, using profanity and offensive language. The computer-generated effects are impressive, especially when Ted is mimicking masturbation. Graeme Virtue.

The 26th Mobo Awards: Full Access Pass

11.30pm, BBC One

Little Simz and Stormzy are at the forefront of the nominations, but there is also much interest in the lower ranks. Will Mercury winners Ezra Collective continue their successful run? And will Potter Payper make history as the first winner to have served time in prison during the release of their album? These are the questions posed by Phil Harrison.

Film choice

On Friday at 2am, Film4 will be showing Benjamin, a film directed by Simon Amstell in 2018.

Simon Amstell’s next film after his futuristic mockumentary about veganism, Carnage, takes on a more traditional approach. It’s a clever drama about relationships, featuring a main character who is self-aware and straightforward, possibly representing Amstell himself. The story follows Benjamin, played by the charmingly vulnerable Colin Morgan, a filmmaker struggling with the mixed reactions to his semi-autobiographical movie. When he meets Noah, a music student played by Phénix Brossard, their on-again-off-again romance becomes the focus of this charming but wandering tale about uncomfortable emotions.
