That unflappable demeanor suffuses most of the show's action, as well as its periodic forays into macabre comedy.

There's an appealingly casual, improvisatory vibe.

If you're going to try your hand at a spy or hitman story, it's on you to come up with something more interesting than the many dozens we've seen before.

Ryan's performance is transfixing, as he's hilarious and horrifying by turns.

It never coalesces into much beyond a few amusing twists and a showcase for Ryan.

Mr. Inbetween is darkly funny, and Scott Ryan is compelling to watch.

The show's main achievement, though, is to balance on a knife edge, with empathy for Ray on one side and horror at his lack of empathy for his victims on the other.

Functions less as a thriller than a character study, often enough as a comedy, and occasionally as a critique of toxic masculinity.

[Ryan's] immediately likable despite the line of work - not an easy feat.
