QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

A Place in Spain, 7pm, LifeStyle Dawn and Rocco went, as so many Brits do, on hol­i­day to Barcelona, where they fell hard for the mag­i­cal city and its way of life. They now want to leave Lon­don, buy a house they’ve found in the moun­tains out­side the city and turn it into a stylish get­away for pay­ing guests. But will they cope with liv­ing and work­ing to­gether? The Simp­sons, 7.30pm, Ten While lemon- lipped re­view­ers who re­main in our faces for decades at­tack The Simp­sons for dar­ing to en­dure, en­dure they do, with the hotly an­tic­i­pated fea­ture film open­ing world­wide as you read this. Scat­ter­gun ref­er­ences from Stephen Hawk­ing to Babe pep­per this episode, the first for some time star­ring Santa’s Lit­tle Helper. The pooch res­cues Homer, pic­tured, from a corn maze and is tal­ent- spot­ted as a po­lice dog. One of his first tri­umphs is the ar­rest of a steroid pusher. ‘‘ You stand ac­cused of giv­ing hope to scrawny young men, how do you plead?’’ in­tones the judge. Cross­ing Jor­dan, 9.30pm, Seven Not just a sea­son finale, this is it: the last episode. Is it sen­ti­men­tal? Well, not un­til the bit­ter end. It starts with the best air crash since the one in Lost . The plane, with our foren­sic team on­board, was fly­ing back 18 dead bod­ies from a ship adrift on the Nor­we­gian sea. So what do they do when stranded with a pile of bod­ies while nurs­ing their own in­juries? Au­top­sies, of course.
