Rules of Engagement, 7.30pm, Ten
‘‘ Nice outfit, 95. You’re certainly dressed to make 70 per cent of what a man would make’’. Ah, David Spade. Still clueless, still sexist, still boring, and still working.
That Mitchell and Webb Look, 9.30pm, ABC1
Some critics here said The Catherine Tate Show wasn’t funny. Too English, apparently. But compared to this, Tate was like Lucille Ball, Jennifer Saunders, Carol Burnett and Joan Rivers rolled into one.
Machines of War: The Tank, 9.30pm, National Geographic
Since its debut a century ago, the tank has been worked over by designers from Ferrari to Rolls- Royce, and is now available in cabriolet and four- door configurations. Present models come with six- CD changers, whistle- while- you- kill sound systems, and tan- inducing automated sunroofs. Actually, tanks are all about mobility, firepower and protection. Damn reality.
At the Movies, 9.55pm, ABC1
It seems David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz, surely Australian television’s most reliable movie critics, have been together forever. Now in their 22nd year on television, tonight the pair turn their focus to, among other things, Michel Gondry’s new comedy Be Kind Rewind , in which Jack Black, pictured, is convinced a local power plant is melting his brain, and subsequently becomes magnetic. Also get the lowdown on Sidney Lumet’s Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead and Abdellatif Kechiche’s The Secret of the Grain.
