SHRILL Double episode new series ★★★½

 Tuesday, 9.30pm, SBS Viceland

As ambitious journalist, Annie Easton, Saturday Night Live’s Aidy Bryant succinctly captures the female desire to please, at considerable cost to herself. Radiating warmth, with a contagious giggle, she weathers the everyday indignation chucked her way because of her size. Until she doesn’t. Luckily, Annie has a dream best friend in her flatmate, Fran (Lolly Adefope). Based on Lindy West’s book, this is a smart, soulful drama with painfully funny bits.

The Caucasian Chalk Circle of an opening plotline to this cracker of a reboot gave Katrina Milosevic the chance to shine, and did she ever. Breaking the Wentworth mould can’t have been easy, so truly did she inhabit H Block’s lovable oaf, “Boomer”. Yet only five episodes in to the continuing story of Pearl Bay, she’s unthinkable as anyone but Anna, the friendly local cop. She takes a well-earned back seat to the histrionics sparked by the return of another prodigal daughter.

THE VET LIFE Series return ★★★

Saturday, 8.30pm, Animal Planet

The Discovery channel loves its themed months and this one’s a crowd pleaser: Vet-tember. (See what they did there?) There are half a dozen series featuring heart-warming interactions between humans and animals, including this one focusing on three mates who run a vet clinic in Houston, Texas. It follows the usual formula of goofing off, family interludes and actual veterinary work but there’s also a lot of good information about pet care – not to mention an overload of puppy goodness. MH
