DAYUM!! Mr Inbetween – What an amazing series

Wow what a series. Mr Inbetween a series which is the continuation and conclusion to a 2005 Australian film called the magician, staring Scott Ryan as Ray Shoesmith, who happens to be a hitman. I have never seen the film so sadly I cannot compare but the tv series is phenomenal. Out the gate you are dragged thru a series of crazy unfortunate events for protagonist marks. Ray is a hitman and sadly he is efficient at his job. What the series tries to do is give this hitman a sense of a normal life. He has a daughter, a sick brother, a pain in the ass best friend who always has his back and vice-versa, a handler of sorts or better yet the person that finds him contract jobs. Ray does exhibit a sense of having some form of a code which is showing as the series unravels. You just want to root for this villain of sorts, who is simply trying to live his life. If you are a fan of breaking bad you may enjoy this series. The series is much shorter with only 30 minute episodes which amazingly fills a void. Trust me even with a shorter burst this series delivers and good grief this was a great ride which left me sadden at the conclusion. Oh, the conclusion does not disappoint just in-case you were wondering. It is a bitter sweet series that simply left my soul incomplete and simply wanted more. The writing staff really out did themselves on this series. Funny enough the series was created by Scott Ray who happens to be the star. This series had difficulties being green lit and took several years before given the go and I have to state I am elated that this was created and just sadden that it ended. If you get a chance check it out. I won’t spoil this amazing series for you with any spoiler just know that Ray has a code basically don’t screw with him, his family or his friends.

DAYUM!! MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE Not a bad series after all.

So allow me to state there may be spoilers. Now let us begin.
Earlier this summer (July 2021) “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” a Netflix revisit to “He-man and The master of the universe” series was released. It was released in two parts, part one was released to mixed reviews and the part two was released November 2021 which had a better reception. Both halves had their own significance and after seeing the whole series as a whole I give props to the steps the creators went to make this series.

Firstly lets start of with this is not the 80s he-man meaning this is not a kids cartoon, characters died and there are severe consequences to actions. This is a more mature he-man series and that being the case liberties were taken with characters within this universe. Looking back at this series I wonder, why did I enjoy this series and had to laugh at the characters as some simply made no sense especially some of the vehicles and abilities. As children we simply had no clue and enjoyed whatever was on especially since we had little choices.

One thing I was surprised is that many forgot that there was another He-man series that came in the early 2002 which had a full season and a half so roughly 26 episodes for season 1 and 13 episodes for season 2. This series followed close to a comic series that I also owned. ” He-Man and the Masters of the Universe[a] is an American-Canadian animated television series. Developed for television by Michael Halperin, who created the original series, it was animated by Mike Young Productions”. This was a great series I actually bought the box set.

In conclusion the “Masters of the Universe is a worthy watch even for this now older fan of the original series. Nostalgia a wonderful thing and sadly that’s what the old series represents. Sometimes they miss the mark with a remake or retelling this certainly gave the original series more substance.
