Chan­nel 10, tonight, 8.30pm ★★★★ The ac­co­lades for this loved Aus­tralian drama may be go­ing straight to the pool room of Asher Ked­die (as Nina Proud­man), but the en­tire cast de­serves praise for keep­ing this se­ries real and in­ter­est­ing. As her co-star Eddie Per­fect (gig­ging tradie Mick) points out, this show is not a ‘‘warm blan­ket’’ you can pull on for com­fort. It sur­prises, it tests and in this episode it will shock. The fall­out from Nina’s dis­cov­ery she is not a Proud­man con­tin­ues, with Pa­trick left to pick up the pieces of his shat­tered girl­friend. Darcy is also reel­ing, but it’s Bil­lie’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to find Mick’s brother a boyfriend that light­ens the tone and takes this into new, hi­lar­i­ous ter­ri­tory. Those not fa­mil­iar­with the so­cial dat­ing app Grindr are in for an ed­u­ca­tion. Per­fect and Kat Ste­wart (as Bil­lie) are a sub­lime com­edy duo, with Ste­wart as ac­com­plished an ac­tor as Ked­die and just as lu­mi­nous (that skin, those cheek­bones) on screen. HB
