QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

Border Se­cu­rity, 7.30pm, Seven More con­fronta­tions at air­ports with vis­i­tors who try it on. But no­body gets past the Span­ish In­qui­si­tion, er, the Aus­tralian Cus­toms Ser­vice. Amaz­ing ar­ro­gance as would- be tourists refuse to be searched and fla­grantly lie about what they have to de­clare. Why are they here? With whom are they go­ing to stay? Grant Bowler re­turns as the voice and a cou­ple of those cute Cus­toms bea­gles are seen on the job. Top Gear, 7.30pm, SBS Af­ter three years the Top Gear team felt the need to make changes to keep the mo­tor­ing show fresh and ex­cit­ing, so they’ve got them­selves a dog. She’s a labradoo­dle, a hy­brid, like a Toy­ota Prius. In typ­i­cal style, the lads con­grat­u­late them­selves on their ge­nius name for the mutt: Top Gear Dog. Un­for­tu­nately, she’s ter­ri­fied of cars: they make her ill. The first car on trial tonight is a lurid pink Nis­san Mi­cra C + C con­vert­ible. It seems to amuse and em­bar­rass test driver Richard Ham­mond, pic­tured. Enough Rope with Andrew Den­ton, 9.35pm, ABC No more remixes, Den­ton’s back with new episodes. And he’s off with a bang, talk­ing to Gill Hicks, the brave and ar­tic­u­late Aus­tralian wo­man who lost both legs in the 2005 Lon­don sui­cide bomb­ings. Her hus­band Joe also ap­pears. The most pro­found mo­ment in his life was re­al­is­ing the depth of his de­sire to have his wife back, re­gard­less of her in­juries or dam­age. Com­pelling.
