This week we’ve been re-living our favourite Emmy moments ( it's Merritt Wever Week in our hearts) plus we've been finding out what Netflix has in store for us in 2014. Here's the other stuff that's been piquing our interest...

1) Ch-Check Out Connan Mockasin’s New Jam

Loved by the likes of The Horrors and The Klaxons, the new track from Oz oddball I’m The Man, That Will Find You is a surreal delight, like Ariel Pink collaborating with a stoned Alvin (from The Chipmunks fame). Listen to the dreamy track here.

2) Tina Fey Readies Her Return To Saturday Night Live

Like Twinkies and Hershey bars, Saturday Night Live remains one of those uniquely American things that us Brit are left slightly mystified by. Still it's the place that birthed many comedy legends including Tina Fey. So, we want to go there…Tina returns to the show this weekend, check out these promos above with feature much Kenan Thompson-assisted hilarity (and a reference to that Emmys nip slip).

3) LOL At Aziz Ansari’s Stand Up Trailer

Parks And Recreation regular and Judd Apatow favourite, Aziz has been making us LOL for years now so we’re pretty excited to watch this trailer for his stand up special, the alarmingly titled Buried Alive. In fact it's not so much as trailer as a run on skit featuring Seth Rogan that gently ribs our ‘new ways to watch tv' culture.

4) Watch The Dreamy Under The Skin Trailer

The trailer for Jonathan Glazer’s cryptic sci-fi film looks part nightmare part dream sequence, featuring Scarlett Johansson looking like a sexy Robert Smith from The Cure. Totally mind scrambling.

5) See Drake Do His 'Acting Face' In His New Video

Drake stifles the indignity of being called ‘the Taylor Swift of the rap game’ with this big budget, Scarface referencing video for his new single. See ASAP Rocky make an awkward joke that fake laugh at. Come to the realisation that Drake’s acting skills won't be giving Daniel Day Lewis any sleeplessness and bask in the 80s glory of the song.
