DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Thursday -

IT’S clearly much harder to lo­cate a bomb in a met­ro­pol­i­tan area than we’ve been led to be­lieve by those drama queens over on – let’s just pick a show at ran­dom – NCIS. The guy from the Rus­sian Em­bassy. The one go­ing by the law en­force­ment given name of The Cuckoo?

Un­re­lated to his men­tal state, ap­par­ently. Yes, it’s to do with the bird, the cuckoo. Real name Ge­orge Rogers, when he’s in Aus­tralia. Vic­tor Mori­zov when he’s at home in, I be­lieve, Kaza­khstan. They’ve got him in a room tonight on Rush. Our cop­pers.

He’s wait­ing for his com­mit­tal hear­ing, which could take ages for a nor­mal per­son, but you just get the feel­ing this won’t be like that. Not when there’s a bomb out there some­where. And not just a bomb. A dirty bomb.

Ev­ery­one’s very calm about it all, and you would be, it’s still very much an ab­stract thing at this point.

Peo­ple can talk about en­riched ura­nium un­til they’re yel­low in the face, but it doesn’t mean much un­til they open up the back of the truck and there it is, tick­ing away. Will it be tick­ing? I have no

Fight­ing back: Samuel John­son idea. This bomb sto­ry­line on Rush has been go­ing on for ages. One thing we learn – tar­geted is a group called the Korean Mag­pies.

I was glad Leon (Samuel John­son) de­cided to go to the union about los­ing his job. Kerry sacked him in a very heavy-handed way, quite apart from the flimsy tech­ni­cal­ity that gets him back in front of the com­put­ers. Did you see that episode? She whis­pered ‘‘ You’re fired’’ into his ear in a way that made me think if ever any­thing hap­pened to Mark Bouris, Cather­ine Mcclements could just step right in to The Celebrity Ap­pren­tice, no au­di­tion re­quired. Rush Chan­nel 10, 8.30pm
