Chalk Up Mr. Inbetween As Another Great Show

Mr. Inbetween aired on the FX Networks from 2018 to 2021. It's been a while since a show that aired on TV had me anxious for the next episode week to week. The last show that did that to me was Breaking Bad

The final episode of Mr. Inbetween aired just this past Tuesday and I have probably replayed it three times already. If you're not familiar with the show, I'll describe it without spoiling it for you. The show focuses on Ray Shoesmith played by Scott Ryan. Shoesmith is a hitman in Australia who's known as "The Magician" in the Australian underworld. Why? Because he makes people disappear.

While freelancing as a criminal, he also tries to juggle being a father to his daugher that he shares custody with ex-wife. That's where the "Inbetween" comes from. 

The show is described as a "dark comedy-crime drama" but in seasons two and three, there's certainly more crime and drama than comedy, and I don't mean that in a bad way. Shoesmith, is still human and with all the dirt he does, there's an odd code of honor that he tries to live by. 

The idea for the show comes from an independant film that Ryan wrote, and starred in as Shoesmith in 2005 titled, "The Magician." I won't spoil that for you either but I can tell you watching it before the show may or not spoil the story of Shoesmith for you. Both are so well-written that no matter how you watch them, they compliment each other. 

Mr. Inbetween is over so now is a perfect time to binge it and not have to wait for new episodes and seasons like I did. Ryan told News.com.au that this was his passion project for about 15 years so it was time to move on. 

While he's moving on, you might want to catch one of the best show's you haven't really heard about. It should be available on FX/Hulu to binge if you're looking for something new.

Check Out THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT – Official Trailer


The Conjuring franchise's latest installment is due out this summer with part 3 entitled "The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It." 

The franchise has had a great financial backing tied along with the case files of Ed and Loraine Warren who are best known for bringing the Amityville Horror to light, as its source material. This one is based on the trial Arne Cheyenne Johnson who was accused of killing his landlord. His defense, you guessed it "The devil made me do it."

Personally, I find The Conjuring franchise refreshing because it is sort of an original spin on "true stories" to make new films in a time where reboots and remakes seem all too normal. If you have not looked into the history of the Warren's you should, it could be some good foresight on what to expect from the franchise's future. 

The Conjuring 3, or The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is due out this summer on June 4.
