First is James May’s Man Lab on SBS ONE Monday 27 February at 2030. Hard to go past this man’s well-written and -executed programs especially when he’s not with the other two.
The first series of 3 programs will show a man how to disarm a WWII bomb, shine a shoe and seduce a lady with music. And I’m not just saying that because that’s what I read on wikipedia; I’ve actually watched them. Maybe SBS will show the 5 episodes of series 2 straight after; I haven’t seen those.
Another gem is/will be Danger 5 on SBS ONE Monday 27 February at 2130. If you thought that Team America World Police was OK, you’ll probably like Danger 5. It is an Australian production based on a comic. Here’s the teaser called Danger 5: The Diamond Girls.
Sadly Danger! 50,000 Volts! is still not on free-to-air. This could be described as Nick Frost’s take on James May’s Man Lab, but that might be unfair to both.
