Mr Inbetween (FX) – Premieres 25th September – Renewed
A black comedy drama inspired by the Australian film The Magician where it follows Ray Shoesmith, a hit-man who is trying to balance his nefarious lifestyle while looking after his daughter and trying to start up a new relationship.
In the show, Ray spends his time doing hits and collection work for his boss Freddy, who also runs the strip club that Ray works the door at. Between that Ray is also trying to hook up with a woman he met while walking his dog, that he later finds out is a paramedic, as well making time for his daughter that he has shared custody of.
For what it is, this does have a few decent comedy moments in it. But with the pacing being so slow it does drag along, making it something you wouldn’t go out of your way to check out.
