Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Thurs­day, SBS One, 9.30pm

This off­beat crime-drama is so good that no one wants any spoil­ers to ruin the an­tic­i­pa­tion. It’s best to go in wide-eyed and naive to see how things un­fold in the cu­ri­ous Min­nesota town of Bemidji. So far, all the char­ac­ters seem to be flour­ish­ing into their own, with Deputy Molly Solver­son (Al­li­son Tol­man) grow­ing in con­fi­dence, while pushed-over-the-edge Lester (Martin Free­man) is start­ing to feel like a new man. Billy Bob Thorn­ton (above) might find it hard to top his role as the dan­ger­ous Lorne Malvo, who op­er­ates by his own set of rules with a be­witch­ing ar­ro­gance. There are only two episodes be­fore the crit­i­cally ac­claimed se­ries wraps up, so savour ev­ery minute.
