Well-acted tone piece
20 September 2015 | by rkhenSee all my reviews

This is a very good "series" (if three episodes are a series). The actors are all very strong; Andrew Scott, in the lead role, is a revelation, as is Martin Clunes. This show belongs to a uniquely British genre, the something-is-surrealistic -about-this-place -but-everyone-seems -to-find-it-normal -and- that's-also-odd mystery. (The most salient example of this genre is The Prisoner, though The Town is a great deal more understated.)

The comments of some reviewers that the series doesn't explain every detail of the characters' lives; that some plot points are superfluous; and that it isn't a documentary on local government; are all accurate. I didn't care, and I doubt other admirers of well-crafted television will, either.

Bottom line: I liked The Town very much, and wish it had been an entire series.
