QUICK BITES

Elmo’s World, 8.30am, ABC1 The high- pitched, child­like Elmo al­ways seemed con­sid­er­ably less in­ter­est­ing than the clas­sic Se­same Street char­ac­ters, but the an­klebiters of the world ap­pear to dis­agree. At least Su­per Grover is here. Women’s Mur­der Club, 9.30pm, Ten Law & Or­der em­pha­sises story over char­ac­ters but even in that en­vi­ron­ment, Angie Har­mon stood out, so it’s no sur­prise that she’s the best thing about this se­ries, which mixes crime with per­sonal dra­mas. It is easy view­ing but blurs with the other generic crime shows and con­se­quently could eas­ily just be called Crim­i­nal Minds Get Close to Home on Cold Cases . Artscape: The ABC of Dance 4 Film, 10pm, ABC1 Meet Jonzi D, hip- hop artist and theatre di­rec­tor work­ing in Bri­tain, and you prob­a­bly al­ready know the lovely Frances Rings, pic­tured, lo­cal dancer and chore­og­ra­pher. They are here to demon­strate what dance films are all about, with short films from eight coun­tries, and four made spe­cially for the pro­gram. Ro­bot Chicken, 8.30pm, Com­edy Ac­tor Seth Green ( the Austin Pow­ers films) and his buddy, Matthew Sen­re­ich, cre­ated this rapid- fire sketch com­edy star­ring dolls and ac­tion fig­ures in 2005, so some of the many pop- cul­tural ref­er­ences have dated. Not ev­ery joke works, but the right au­di­ence — one that, say, likes the idea of Star Wars and Star Trek fans fight­ing each other — will be tick­led.
