Low­down ABC1, 9.30pm

Geelong Advertiser - - TODAY’S TV -

The charm of the Low­down main char­ac­ter, tabloid jour­nal­ist Alex Burchill (Adam Zwar), is that he re­mains ut­terly nar­cis­sis­tic and com­pletely af­fa­ble in equal mea­sures. Af­ter Alex de­cides he has been dis­re­spected by celebrity chef Brad Gor­don (Steve Bas­toni) – but who was, in fact, dis­re­spect­ing Alex’s girl­friend and has no idea who Alex is – he holds a sting to ex­act re­venge. With Geoffrey Rush’s voiceovers to spur him on, Alex tries to catch Brad cheat­ing on his wife with ac­tress Imo­gen (Kim­ber­ley Davies), while jug­gling a story about a woman who mar­ries her cat. If this sounds like a joke, it is – and a bril­liantly en­ter­tain­ing one at that.
