COM­EDY SAMMY J AND RANDY IN RICK­ETTS LANE

STREAM­ING, ABC i VI E W

One of Aus­tralian com­edy’s dream teams, Sammy J (the pants-wet­ting lawyer) and Randy (the pur­ple, di­vorced one) swap the fes­ti­val cir­cuit for a six-part sit­com you can binge-watch any time this month. The se­ries re­tains both the songs and the all-round wrong­ness of their stand-up.

DRAMA

TEXAS RIS­ING 7. 3 0PM, F X Those who love their horse-wran­glin’, to­bac­cy­chewin’, gun-slin­gin’ west­erns may find some­thing to dig in this five-part drama de­pict­ing the trans­for­ma­tion of Texas from law­less fron­tier to state­hood. But an in­ter­est­ing cast (Olivier Martinez, Ray Liotta, Crispin Glover, Bren­dan Fraser) is largely wasted on a se­ries so slow and old-fash­ioned it should be in black and white.

COM­EDY

UTOPIA 9PM, ABC Don’t you hate it when work tries to get you in­volved in … ugh … ac­tiv­i­ties? It’s Healthy Heart Week in the NBA of­fice and while the team is lung­ing and stretch­ing and switch­ing to stand-up work sta­tions, Tony (Rob Sitch) is just get­ting high blood-pres­sure read­ings and cho­co­late bars: “I need my gluten and re­fined sugar!”
