HD Highlights: August 4

Series Return: CSI: New York (TV3, 8.30, 5.1) The CSI spin-off resumes from episode 15 of season six, in which a legendary racer dies after his car explodes on a New York street just two days before a big race. Guest stars include soap opera vet-cum-car race driver Antonio Sabato Jr (The Bold and the Beautiful) and driver Danica Patrick. CSI Files reports the New York crew constructed part of a race track on one block of downtown Los Angeles and quoted Sabato as saying: “It’s been phenomenal. They brought in Formula cars [and] 500 extras … We’ve been working late, but it’s been awesome. I’m wearing a race suit every day and hanging out with race car drivers and Danica Patrick.” ✭✭✭✩

The Bionic Vet (TV One, 5.20, F) Season finale: Noel attempts a rare operation which has only ever been carried out twice before.  ✭✭✭

Hyundai Country Calendar (TV One, 7.00) A Hawke’s Bay farmer reaps the rewards of caring for his land. ✭✭✭✭

ITM Fishing Show (TV3, 7.00) Packs of sharks are devouring all of the fish Matt and the team hook, so a local Tahitian guides them to a remote atoll a further 80 miles away, where the sharks are scarce and the fish huge. ✭✭✭

CSI: Miami (TV3 9.30, 5.1) A delivery-truck driver and a businesswoman on his route are murdered, and the CSIs investigate to uncover the connection between the two victims. ✭✭✭

Movie: Sunshine (TV3, 10.25, 5.1, R) Only sci-fi diehards will enjoy this trip to the malarkey side of the sun (it has to be re-ignited with a nuclear payload). Duller than a cloudy day, it stars Cliff Curtis, Damages’ Rose Byrne, Inception’s Cillian Murphy and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’s Mark Strong. Slumdog Millionaire’s Danny Boyle directs another screenplay by his 28 Days Later ... scribe Alex Garland, who’s also penned Dredd 3D (which opens here on October 4 and, like Sunshine, stars another Kiwi, Karl Urban).

  1. This episode of CSI:NY was one of the worst ever, largely due to the inauthentic car racing content. The clowns responsible for this wouldn’t know a Grand Prix car from a peddle car. Did they even consult real car racing people?
