QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv -

Brothers & Sis­ters, 9.30pm, Seven Justin Walker self- righ­teously uses hon­esty about his ad­dic­tion to de­mand sim­i­lar hon­esty from his brother- in- law Joe over that kiss with Re­becca. Holly venge­fully blows the se­cret to Sarah, which looks like it might be the fi­nal nail in the cof­fin of Joe and Sarah’s strug­gling re­la­tion­ship. But what re­ally did hap­pen? Could it be that Re­becca is not quite the lit­tle in­no­cent she pre­tends to be? Holly knows her daugh­ter well. Torch­wood, 9.40pm, Ten Day one on the job for Gwen as an alien in­ves­ti­ga­tor ( episode two for us), and nat­u­rally a me­teor con­tain­ing a gaseous alien crash- lands in Cardiff. The host body is a young wo­man dis­en­chanted with her boyfriend. Once the alien is on board, the wo­man be­comes a sex­ual preda­tor. Her first kill is caught on a sur­veil­lance tape, viewed by Torch­wood. At the cli­mac­tic mo­ment, the man screams and turns into a pile of dust. ‘‘ He came and went,’’ quips Cap­tain Jack. Bos­ton Le­gal, 10.30pm, Seven The great thing about Karen Walker, from Will & Grace , is that the he­lium voice be­longs to the char­ac­ter. This al­lows Me­gan Mul­lally, pic­tured, to ef­fort­lessly shed Karen to take on the role of Re­nata Hill, a bride cov­ered in blood who also hap­pens to be an at­tor­ney with an iden­tity cri­sis. She runs to Alan Shore ( James Spader) to help clear both her names.
