    This revenge mission by Emily (Emily VanCamp) is surely taking longer than she’d ever hoped. If she’d known how arduous, catastrophic and deadly her plan would become, one wonders if she might’ve taken the easy option out. Now jumping headfirst into the deliciously trashy drama’s third season, there is no end in sight – the calculating plan has been reset six months after last season’s explosion. Tonight, after being deceived by Emily, Aiden (Barry Sloane) is determined to destroy her, joining forces with the deliciously calculating Victoria (Madeleine Stowe). A refreshingly focused episode after last week’s shaky return.


    If there’s anyone who everyone in the scientific community looks up to, it’s Stephen Hawking. The genius’s celebrity is so big that even those who don’t know much about science are likely to have heard of him and he is credited with bringing science to a bigger audience. In the premiere of Stephen Hawking’s Future Universe, an exciting array of names from the international scientific community come together to discuss cutting-edge science, but in a way Joe average can understand. Major breakthroughs will be revealed, and the show promises to bridge the gap between what scientists know and what we know.

    BECAUSE I SAID SO (2007) – SEVEN, noon

    Diane Keaton, Mandy Moore, Gabriel Macht. Something’s gotta give when interfering mother Daphne Wilder (Diane Keaton) sets up her daughter Milly (Mandy Moore) with a smooth architect (Tom Everett Scott). He’d be a great catch, but so would the cute guitarist (Gabriel Macht) Milly falls for at the same time. With Milly’s sisters happily married, it seems the meddling matriarch will stop at nothing until her youngest finds Mr Right. A chick flick in anyone’s book, this lightweight comedy is a bit like the souffles that chef Milly cooks – it’s light and fluffy. Believe it or not, it’s the work of Michael Lehmann, who made his directorial debut with the classic black comedy Heathers.

    STEPMOM (19998) – 7TWO, 2.00pm

    Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, Ed Harris, Jena Malone. No stranger to fatal illness films (remember Dying Young?), Julia Roberts takes another tissue-baiting turn in this unashamedly melodramatic star vehicle. Ed Harris is the divorced dad who has gained custody of the children and is living in a de facto relationship with a successful photographer (Roberts), much to the disdain of his children and ex-wife (Susan Sarandon). Things go bad when Sarandon develops cancer, calling on Roberts and her children for support. Director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter) shamelessly manipulates the viewer from pathos to cheap laughs – heartwarming would be an understatement.

    THE FIGHTER (2010, AV15+) – GO!, 9.30pm

    Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Amy Adams. Director David O. Russell (Three Kings) scores a knock-out with this original entry in the boxing film genre. Welterweight boxer Dicky Eklund made local history in the working-class Massachusetts city of Lowell in the 1970s by sending Sugar Ray Leonard to the mat. Later, struggling with drug addiction and running petty hustles, Dicky (an almost emaciated Christian Bale) trained his half-brother Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) to have a crack at a world welterweight championship. With a stellar cast including Amy Adams as Micky’s girlfriend Charlene and Melissa Leo as his domineering mother, this true story of pluck and determination is not easy viewing, but definitely a winner.
