Kill Ar­man

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 8.40pm, SBS Two His name is Ar­man Al­izad, mas­ter tai­lor, fash­ion re­porter and party an­i­mal. Well, as much of a party an­i­mal as you can be when you’re a podgy, un­fit 30-some­thing who loves his in­dul­gent life­style and cosy crea­ture com­forts. In his pre­vi­ous sea­son Al­izad trained like a dog for six months to face the chal­lenge of a life­time. Then he went into bat­tle with 10 war­riors in 10 mar­tial arts in 10 coun­tries. He lost ev­ery time. Start­ing in Ad­dis Ababa with Suri stick fight­ing, he will try again this sea­son with an­other 10 op­po­nents and 10 mar­tial arts in 10 other coun­tries. I give it 10. love seems to be rear­ing its pretty head, a sig­nif­i­cant com­pli­ca­tion for their in­cred­i­bly long spy mis­sion. The Amer­i­cans is a bit like Home­land but with lovely comic and ro­man­tic mo­ments. Flash­backs to the 60s in the mother­land are in­cred­i­bly de­tailed and well done, and they flesh out the char­ac­ters’ now fal­ter­ing mo­ti­va­tion. As well, the crew dis­cover in this episode that some­body is talk­ing. Yes, peo­ple, The Amer­i­cans has a mole, just like the one over on Seven. con­tes­tants don’t know it yet but there are three teams of four con­tes­tants. Nat­u­rally there are dra­matic elim­i­na­tions. Hosted by Shura Taft, The Mole can be seen three times a week by peo­ple who gen­uinely love the re­al­ity genre.
