    Mr Inbetween was nothing short of a stunning revelation.

    Bits of unsuspected violence are cut with moments of utter absurdity. It’s surprising and intriguing, but Nash Edgerton’s unassuming vision is also a thoughtful evaluation of an ugly world where violence is the accepted norm.

    The killer with a heart of gold isn’t a new trope. ... But Mr. Inbetween gives it a fresh and funny going over.

    There’s a bit of an imbalance in Mr. Inbetween in that it feels like Ryan and Edgerton are way more interested in Ray’s violent world than his domestic one, although that alone makes it unusual as most of these shows focus on "rehabbing" their bad guys more than this one does. The show comes to life most often when Ray finds himself in dangerous situations.

    Mr Inbetween is a modest time killer as those go these days. The entire season clocks in at under three hours, divided into efficient half-hour segments, two of which debuted last week. Its shortened length in no way shortchanges the viewer, though (Purveyors of extended hour-long episodic bloat, please take note). That said, whether you love Mr Inbetween or are turned off by it hinges upon Ryan’s rendering of Ray.

    Mr. Inbetween functions less as a thriller than a character study, often enough as a comedy, and occasionally as a critique of toxic masculinity. Indeed, it comes most alive in scenes where nothing much is happening, in a way that nevertheless holds your interest.

    Neither Mr. Inbetween’s story nor Ryan’s portrayal of this determinedly laconic character have much urgency to them.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. It's an absolutely hilarious show. I wasn't familiar with this lead actor, but he's really amazing. The sequence in which he has to explain to his daughter that Santa, The Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny don't exist (but Unicorns to), had me rolling on on the floor. Expand
