The Man Who Made Husbands Jealous
* Monday, Channel 7 - 8.30pm
A very British bedroom farce from writer Jilly Cooper. Lysander is a gorgeous
pro tennis player who has more success in bed than on the tennis court. Finding
himself in debt, an entrepreneurial friend arranges for Lysander to put his
unique talents to work. Rich, unhappy women whose husbands have strayed can hire
Lysander to make their husbands jealous. Viewers who yearn for the rich and
bitchy days of Dynasty will lap up the lavish country house settings and silly
but gorgeous-looking shenanigans.
* Wednesday, Channel 10 - 8.30pm
The final episode of this year's series airs Wednesday night - and this is
one of those cliffhangers that leaves viewers in disbelief that it could really
be the end. At a robbery in a fast-food store, people's gunshot wounds are
miraculously healed by a tall, grey-haired stranger. While he's talking to
police the miracle worker seems to vanish into thin air. Scully and Mulder are
called to investigate and into their paths again steps the creepy Smoking Man.
Stranger still is the fact that he is observed talking to Mulder's mother
moments before she suffers a critical stroke. It sets off a painful journey of
discovery for Mulder, but will he finally get to the bottom of the Smoking Man's
connection to his mother before the hour - and the series - is up?
Home And Away
* Friday, Channel 7 - 7pm
Yes, 2000 episodes - Home And Away hits that landmark tonight and you've got
to wonder,what else can happen in Summer Bay? Not much for Melissa George, who
bows out of the soapie in this gloriously sentimental episode. After arriving in
Summer Bay as a 15-year-old street kid, Melissa's character Angel has been
through the gamut of soapie dramas, culminating this year in giving birth and
losing her beloved husband Shane (Dieter Brummer). Tonight, happiness returns to
her life as she finally gets together with charming English millionaire Simon
Where Are They Now?
* Friday, Channel 7 - 7.30pm
If you're one of the several generations of Australians who can still hum the
theme song to My Three Sons, then come with Peter Luck as he conducts a Sons'
reunion. The show's dad, Fred MacMurray, died several years ago but the "sons"
are all still jobbing actors. Don Grady, otherwise known as "the handsome one",
is also a composer and fans will recognise his work in the Donahue theme.
Tonight's episode also tracks down Cliff Young, the marathon jogger who shuffled
his way to national stardom. And for those who remember Gough Whitlam's 1972
Labor campaign, which featured many top TV stars, Luck has organised a reunion.
The idea behind Where Are They Now is so obvious it's amazing it has never been
made into a TV series before. All credit to Peter Luck for turning the idea into
a terrific TV trivia fest.
