Trainspotting director Danny Boyle comes to the small screen with Pistol, a six-part miniseries produced by FX featuring the debut of legendary British punk band The Sex Pistols.

Talulah Riley, Maisie Williams and Thomas Brodie-Sangster are among the other stars appearing on the series, which has unfortunately been described by critics (including TechRadar's Tom Goodwyn) as all style and no substance.

Still, Pistol may be worth watching for its off-screen controversy alone. John Lyndon (aka Johnny Rotten) called the show "the most disrespectful shit I've ever had to put up with," making us more interested in watching than we might have been otherwise.
