QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

The Cook and the Chef, 6.30pm, ABC Win­ter school hol­i­days are a treat for young­sters, but some­times a trial for par­ents. Mag­gie and Si­mon show you how to turn a kitchen into a trea­sure trove. Thank God You’re Here, 7.30pm, Ten Get ready for more un­scripted comic im­prov chaos as the folk be­hind TGYH bring you a brand new se­ries. Host Shane Bourne and judge Tom Gleis­ner ( The Panel ) re­turn, promis­ing to shunt a grab bag of old and new faces through the blue door. The Force: Be­hind the Line, 7.30pm, Seven Go along with Perth po­lice as they chase down sex at­tack­ers and speed­ing utes car­ry­ing heartbroken cow­boys, and marvel as they fish a sub­merged car out of a coun­try dam. Si­mon Reeve, pic­tured, and the cam­era crew don’t seem to make the po­lice or the crims self- con­scious. Who has time for van­ity in the midst of se­ri­ous crime? Ex­treme Makeover, 10.30pm, Nine A tomboy kinda gal gets a more wom­anly face and much big­ger breasts, while a pizza de­liv­ery boy with the nick­names pep­per­oni face and shark mouth gets a smooth new look. Now he looks like a dugong. My favourite thing about this show is not the hypedup emo­tion of the fi­nal rev­e­la­tions but the host team burst­ing into peo­ple’s homes in fire­men’s gear and car­ry­ing them out of the house and all the way into their new, sur­gi­cally en­hanced lives.
