QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv -

Ac­cord­ing To Jim, 3pm, Seven In its fifth sea­son, this light­weight sit­com fluff is not with­out ap­peal. To­day big Jim ( Jim Belushi) helps his brother- in- law Andy ( Larry Joe Camp­bell) pick up a beau­ti­ful wo­man in a bar. Un­for­tu­natley, she turns out to be a tad un­hinged. The ev­i­dence? She turns her back on Andy and be­gins to stalk the big guy. Star Trek: The Next Gen­er­a­tion, 6.30pm, Sci- Fi This episode marks the be­gin­ning of the sev­enth and fi­nal sea­son of STNG , which many fans be­lieve was its finest. The hardy crew of yet an­other USS En­ter­prise, led by Pa­trick Ste­wart, pic­tured, as Cap­tain Jean- Luc Pi­card, had a shock at the end of sea­son six when Pi­card, Troi and Ge­ordi were im­pris­oned by Data, who ap­peared to be in ca­hoots with the Borg. You can al­most smell the evil- twin plot­line on the hori­zon in tonight’s con­clu­sion. Ex­pect a visit from Data’s so- called brother, Lore. Col­lec­tors, 8pm, ABC Andy Muir­head and the team reach the 100- show mile­stone and get a tele­gram from the Queen. We know it’s au­then­tic ( not!) be­cause she dots her i’s with lit­tle crowns. Such be­guil­ing ban­ter. Then it’s on with the show, be­gin­ning with a wo­man who trea­sures glass eyes, then fo­cus­ing on the enor­mous and wacky col­lec­tions of the no­to­ri­ous Madame Lash ( Gre­tel Pin­niger). ‘‘ Ev­ery­where I look, there’s some­thing I want,’’ she says. I know ex­actly how she feels.
