DRAMA HID­ING

8. 3 0PM, ABC

Part two of this im­plau­si­ble yet en­ter­tain­ing fam­ily-goes-into-wit­ness-pro­tec­tion drama. A few ques­tions: why give an un­e­d­u­cated crim a cover iden­tity as a doc­tor of crim­i­nal psy­chol­ogy at a uni­ver­sity? Why send his son, who can’t sing, to a per­form­ing arts high school? And is Mar­cus Gra­ham, play­ing a crime lord, good at act­ing ter­ri­ble, or just ter­ri­ble at act­ing good?

Tonight a 74-year-old man dies again and again and again from a heart attack.
