DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Front Page -

SO now Josh is dead? Re­ally? Well, noth­ing’s con­firmed yet, the re­sults aren’t back from the lab, but that hand pressed up against the win­dow of the burnt-out ve­hi­cle doesn’t look too flash. It could be­long to any­one, but Law­son is knock­ing on Tash’s door to pre­pare her for bad news just in case. Very thought­ful.

But he and Josh were – are, let’s not get ahead of our­selves – af­ter all best friends who ran out of more than one restau­rant with­out pay­ing the bill. Which is why he com­forts Tash with a quick shag. It’s what Josh would’ve wanted. Let’s hope he re­ally is dead, right Law­son?

And now the rest of the Rush cast look like get­ting fin­ished off by the bomb, which ap­pears to be ‘‘ some­where in Mel­bourne’’. Part of me hopes there re­ally is a bomb. Be­cause of the stupid po­lice min­is­ter and her in­tran­si­gence.

We can’t shut down Mel­bourne and cause wide­spread panic, she tells Kerry (Cather­ine McClements) dur­ing one of their stand­offs. Not dur­ing Spring Rac­ing Car­ni­val. Kerry draws her a map, and some­how re­sists us­ing pup­pets: guy dy­ing of ra­di­a­tion poi­son­ing. Two hun­dred ki­los of Sem­tex some­where. And her big closer: they’ve got a fa­cil­ity that was ob­vi­ously used for ra­dioac­tive ma­te­rial. Yes Kerry, it’s called Mar­alinga, we re­ally need to get that cleaned up some­time.

It’s a solid episode, and they had to wrap up this whole sto­ry­line, if that’s in fact what’s hap­pened, but it’s all fairly rou­tine when you think about the heat of episodes past. Is it be­cause Cal­lan Mul­vey’s not in it? That’s my the­ory. He and Rodger Corser are like Brad and An­gelina. In the early days, be­fore they ar­gued.

There can’t be many episodes left of this show. It feels like there aren’t any­way. Rush Chan­nel 10, 8.30pm

Best bud: Rodger Corser
