Off­spring

Ten, 8.30pm Ten has given birth to this new re­la­tion­ship se­ries set in Mel­bourne’s sunny sub­urb of Fitzroy. Asher Ked­die, whose portrayal of the feisty Ju­lia in the bril­liant Love My Way re­ally es­tab­lished her as an ac­tor with a big fu­ture, gets her first star­ring role and she’s likely to make an im­pact here. The ac­tion re­volves around ob­ste­tri­cian Nina Proud­man, whose life is full of com­pli­cated re­la­tion­ships and con­flict­ing de­sires. Stylis­ti­cally fresh, the 13-part se­ries from pro­ducer John Ed­wards ( Love My Way,

Tan­gle, Rush) blends light drama with an­i­ma­tion and fan­tasy se­quences. Don Hany, Kat Ste­wart and John Wa­ters of­fer sup­port.

Mad Men

SBS ONE, 9.30pm Two years have passed at Ster­ling Cooper since the end of the first se­ries, and at first glance not much ap­pears to have changed. But things are not what they seem. Don Draper ( Jon Hamm) con­tin­ues to con­ceal his true iden­tity while pa­per­ing over the cracks in his mar­riage to Betty ( Jan­uary Jones). Af­ter a Valen­tine’s Day din­ner turns into a dis­as­ter, the un­spo­ken trou­bles in their re­la­tion­ship make them­selves plain to see. Mean­while, Peggy ( Elis­a­beth Moss) comes back to work flaunt­ing a newly slim fig­ure af­ter giv­ing birth to Peter’s baby in se­cret – and peo­ple are talk­ing. Nostal­gic, racy and highly orig­i­nal, Mad Men is back with a vengeance.
