Cho­sen

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 4.30pm, FX This is a truly creepy lit­tle ac­tion-ad­ven­ture se­ries com­prised of just six half-hour episodes, orig­i­nally re­leased all at once, and show­ing back-to-back on FX on Sun­day for a solid three hours. Cen­tral char­ac­ter Ian Mitchell (Milo Ven­timiglia, Heroes, Amer­i­can Dreams) is a smartly at­tired small-time de­fence at­tor­ney strug­gling with shared cus­tody of his daugh­ter in the af­ter­math of a di­vorce from wife Laura, played enig­mat­i­cally by lo­cal lass Nicky Whe­lan ( Neigh­bours). Sec­onds af­ter he has handed the child back to her, the door­bell rings. There’s just a pack­age on the stoop. In­side is a gun and in­struc­tions to kill a man who turns out to be a den­tist. The po­lice are no help at all, and you are left to won­der if they ac­tu­ally are the po­lice. To his hor­ror, Ian finds that some­one else is also try­ing to kill him. Yes, he has been cho­sen for a wicked game, and we’re not talk­ing the Chris Isaak song.
