Ray is one of the most complicated characters on tv right now and the show actually gives that space to breathe. He's neither a hero you can root for nor a villain you can entirely write off. He thinks of himself as moral, a single dad who just does what needs doing and only hurts bad people. But even when he's not killing other people, his toxicity is killing him. The uniquely dry Australian wit doesn't so much soften it as help sneak the poison in.

I really wish more people had seen this because it's gold.

If Ted Lasso is a show about a positive man rising above the effects of toxic masculinity and trying to help him do the same, Mr. in Between is a show about a pessimistic man drowning in it, despite having intentions to be a good man.

Gary constantly doing embarrassing shit wears a little thin, though I recognize why it serves as a counterpoint.

Best show I've seen in ages. Absolutely criminal that more people haven't noticed it (though I'm delighted that Rick Salutin, of all people, quite righteously has)
