DRAMA, SBS ONE, 9.30PM
It really shouldn’t work, but it does. The bizarre, bloody, snow-covered world of the Coen brothers’ 1996 film has found new life in this series. In his first TV gig, Billy Bob Thornton gets to play with his reputation as a bad guy. Martin Freeman puts a weird spin on his good guy reputation. And, if there’s justice in the world, it will finally allow Colin Hanks – as a small-town cop wrestling with how to confront all the madness – to step out of the shadow of his famous dad.
