Isis Town and Country - - TELEVISION -

Thurs­day, SBS One, 8.30pm

More akin to a movie – crafted into 10 de­li­cious pieces – this ex­cit­ing se­ries is an­other rea­son why the small screen has never been more ex­cit­ing. Based on the Academy Award-win­ning film and with the Coen broth­ers steer­ing the ship as ex­ec­u­tive pro­duc­ers, it hosts a who’s who of ac­tors. Billy Bob Thorn­ton (left) takes the lead as a ma­nip­u­la­tive psy­chopath, the fit­tingly creepy look­ing Lorne Malvo, who ar­rives in snow-cov­ered Min­nesota bring­ing dark­ness and trou­ble with him. Thorn­ton fits the role like a glove, com­plete with what he calls “a hair­cut gone wrong”. Martin Free­man, Bob Odenkirk ( Break­ing Bad) and Colin Hanks also star in this sim­mer­ing drama.
