QUICK BITES

Pro­fes­sor Re­gan’s Su­per­mar­ket Trol­ley, 7.30pm, SBS

‘‘ Some­where there is a per­fect kitchen, where all the prod­ucts do ex­actly as they say on the tin. All the su­per- foods are su­per, and all the mar­ket­ing claims are ac­cu­rate.’’ So says a creepy voice- over as dream­like mu­sic kicks things off. Then it’s down to the prof as she goes to man­u­fac­tur­ers and nails them with the lies and false­hoods she has de­tected. Not one dreamy prod­uct left stand­ing.

Movie: Mi­ami Vice, 8.30pm, Ten

Don’t panic. This is the 2006 movie ver­sion star­ring Colin Far­rell as Sonny Crock­ett and Jamie Foxx as De­tec­tive Ri­cardo Tubbs. With Far­rell the man of the month due to his crit­i­cally well- re­ceived turn in In Bruges , it may well be worth check­ing out.

Mur­phy’s Law, 9.40pm, ABC1

Yer man is back in town. Yes, tough Ir­ish cop Tommy Mur­phy ( James Nes­bitt, pic­tured), the man whose ca­reer got off to a roar­ing start three sea­sons ago in North­ern Ire­land when he was forced to carry a bomb and blow him­self up or have his daugh­ter killed, is back on your screens. Ob­vi­ously he didn’t blow him­self up. Af­ter he was un­able to go through with killing 200 peo­ple ( and him­self), he went home to find the bad guys had slit his daugh­ter’s throat and forced his wife to watch. All of his tru­cu­lence, mis­ery and black hu­mour can be traced back to this ap­palling event: de­spite all he has achieved since, he still blames him­self for his daugh­ter’s death. See our in- depth re­view next week.
