DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Tuesday - COP­PER, FX, Fox­tel, 9.30pm

THIS is all right. Cop show ( Cop­per — I thought plumber un­til I watched it) set in Man­hat­tan dur­ing the Amer­i­can Civil War. The main guy, Kevin Cor­co­ran (Tom We­ston-Jones, pic­tured), was in the army and saved the life of a rich and pow­er­ful man’s son and came back and was made a de­tec­tive. What was a rich and pow­er­ful man’s son do­ing so close to the war? Best you don’t ask too many ques­tions here. But Corky also has to deal with the other end of the tax bracket — not that they were pay­ing tax yet. A sor­did crime for the first episode.
