Luke Nguyen’s Railway Vietnam SBS, 7.30pm
What’s this we have here? Another series on SBS focusing on railways? It’s true! Just when you thought all the shows concerned with train travel had been exhausted, foodie Luke Ngyuen has jumped onto the tracks with his latest cooking series. The Australian-Vietnamese chef is embarking on a journey through Vietnam, and you won’t see him in a car or motorbike … no way. He’s taking the scenic and often crowded route via the Reunification Express, an 2000km old train network renamed after decades of conflict to represent the coming together of the North and South of Vietnam. The journey begins in Ho Chi Minh. Expect some tasty cooking.
On Becoming A God In Central Florida SBS, 9.25pm
Cinematic and beguilingly strange, this clever series is a real treat. It’s easy to see why Kirsten Dunst (pictured) was drawn to the role of ballsy single mum Krystal Stubbs – the series exhibits a quirkiness and darkness which is reminiscent of the Coen brothers filmmakers who produced Fargo, in which Dunst also starred. Tonight, in “Manifest Destinee”, the oddness accumulates with a surprising shift in dynamic between Krystal and fellow pyramid scheme devotee Cody (Théodore Pellerin). Meanwhile, Krystal is approached by a FAM security officer to make sure that she’s following the system’s rules.
