Tuesday, 8pm, ABC1 Emmo gets the Annabel Crabb treatment. Yes, Craig Emerson — federal minister for trade, until recently — faces the food and frivolity with good humour and customary candour. Political historians probably knew that Emmo and former PM Julia Gillard were once an item. When you think about it, much about his loyalty to the former PM then makes good sense. This is perhaps Crabb’s most intriguing revelation to camera as she whips up some ginger snap baskets with passionfruit curd and rum cream. Then it’s off to Emmo’s in Logan, Queensland, for lunch. At first I couldn’t work out why we had to race off to the local fruit market, then remembered we have to watch as a vulnerable and exposed-looking pollie makes a meal in his own kitchen. This isn’t quite the show it thinks it is. Far too many flat moments with just nervous banter for relief. Much like the real cabinet, I suppose. It’s already out of date thanks to the recent change of leadership of the ALP. But we can’t blame Crabb for that. I did find it intriguing that the sun went down rapidly behind the lunching pair. Who said the long lunch was dead?
