THE BRINK K

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TODAY'S PICK -

7 PM, SHOW­CASE

Well worth watch­ing but with two episodes left it’s time to ask why this HBO geo- po­lit­i­cal satire fea­tur­ing top notch comic tal­ent ( Jack Black, Tim Rob­bins, right) isn’t ac­tu­ally bet­ter than it is. The satire is a lit­tle in­sipid, the char­ac­ters too broadly drawn, and the dra­matic stuff ( bomb­ings, tor­ture, mil­i­tary coups) doesn’t re­ally res­onate. Oh well, at least you get to see some­one drink­ing a bot­tle of mouth­wash.
