QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

Great Bri­tish Menu, 7.30pm, LifeStyle Food In ac­cor­dance with television rule 27 ( all re­al­ity pro­grams must have a com­pet­i­tive el­e­ment), two Welsh cooks vie for the right to rep­re­sent Wales at a big do held by the Bri­tish am­bas­sador to France in Paris. Among the guests will be the great gourmets of France. Nat­u­rally the two mates must have their friend­ship tested as they com­pete all week for the right to be the only chef in the vil­lage. Crim­i­nal Minds, 8.30pm, Seven A suit­ably tense crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion into child sex traf­fick­ing and pornog­ra­phy. There’s a lit­tle too much ex­po­si­tion in the open­ing scenes for my taste, but when things get go­ing they re­ally do move. An auc­tion clock is tick­ing down through 18 hours, so the race is on to save a child who will be auc­tioned to the high­est bid­der when the clock reaches zero. The child, now seven, was de­tected in the same way a year ago but dis­ap­peared when child pro­tec­tion ser­vices closed in. This time the Crim­i­nal Minds team, oth­er­wise known as the Be­havioural Anal­y­sis Unit, led by Ja­son Gideon ( Mandy Patinkin, pic­tured) is on the case. Scrubs, 11.30pm, Seven Fans will be mildly dis­tressed to learn that this is the 2007 sea­son finale. Ev­ery­one seems to be hav­ing a baby or a wed­ding. ‘‘ It’s about me, come on, fo­cus. There’s no ‘ u’ in wed­ding!’’ squeals a bride- to- be. For­tu­nately, there’s room in the groom to cope with the an­noy­ing cow.
