QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

Sea Pa­trol, 8.30pm, Nine The HMAS Ham­mer­s­ley comes across a boat fish­ing il­le­gally for sharks. But the crew don’t speak English and haven’t a clue what Lisa McCune is on about. For a lit­tle ro­man­tic ten­sion, Ham­mer­s­ley puts the fish­ing boat in tow and nips over to Bright Is­land to col­lect the fre­quently lost Dr Ur­sula Mor­rell ( Sibylla Budd, pic­tured). XO Kate McGre­gor ( McCune) is not happy. With an eye patch for a crew mem­ber and a few spare parts for the Ham­mer­s­ley, it’s off to the Delta quad­rant to catch the mother ship. But some pesky eco- mil­i­tants make trou­ble for our ro­man­ti­cally flus­tered he­roes. BBQ Cham­pi­onship, 9.30pm, LifeStyle Food ‘‘ Where culi­nary com­bat is waged over em­bers and smoke,’’ booms a por­ten­tous voice while the Acme re­al­ity show mu­sic grinds away, try­ing to make things sound lofty and se­ri­ous. Though there is a prize of $ 75,000 for the win­ner, you’d have to pay me more than that to watch this half- baked re­al­ity slop again. Mark Philip­pous­sis’ Age Of Love, 10.20pm, Seven The play­ground drama grinds on, with the Poo whit­tling down his op­tions. Tonight, in shades of Big Brother , the young women have to move in with the old women so that some sparks can be man­u­fac­tured. Then it’s off to join Philip­pous­sis, wait­ing calmly, trussed up in a tux, on a lux­ury yacht. Whose wily ways will win the Wim­ble­don wom­bat’s heart?
