The big talking points on TV this week

Here's what has tongues wagging in the TV WEEK office.

By TV Week team

Wanted: Wanting more

Thrills, heart-stopping action that results in at least one death, and plenty of bulging Stephen Peacocke – this week’s season two finale of Wanted does everything right.
Lola (Rebecca Gibney) and Chelsea’s (Geraldine Hakewill) 
fight for freedom will leave viewers wanting to see what comes next.
C’mon, Channel Seven, give the show another season.

Nightly news: Way to graphic

Burning buildings, horrific terror attacks, death, disease and destruction – it seems like we’re getting a bigger dose every day.
We know the news 
won’t ever be sunshine and smiles, but lately nothing 
is off limits, with evening bulletins showing increasingly explicit images of world events.
Surely we can still get the message without having to see the worst of it?

The Handmaid's Tale: Hey, isn't that Rory?

We can’t wait to see Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel back on our screens in new series The Handmaid’s Tale.
Alexis plays the meek and well-mannered Ofglen, a character about as far from the savvy teenager Rory in Gilmore Girls as you can get.
The star cast includes Elisabeth Moss (Top Of The Lake) and Samira Wiley (Orange Is The New Black).
It’s not your standard thriller, but The Handmaid’s Tale will have your heart thumping in no time.

Behave Yourself!: We are family

With so many TV series filled with sex, drugs and murder (not to mention dragons and zombies), it can be hard to find something the whole family can watch together.
That’s why we’re so excited about three new family-friendly shows launching in the coming days: Nine Network’s Australian Ninja Warrior and Channel Seven’s Little Big Shots and Behave Yourself! (above).

Shark Tank: We're jealous

Ever had an idea you thought could make you millions?
We certainly have, which is why it’s almost impossible not to have a “that could have been 
me” moment while watching Network Ten’s Shark Tank.
Especially this week, when the five sharks fight for the biggest deal in the show’s history. We have to admit we’re envious of the millions of dollars thrown around.
