Product Description

Mia is a contract killer with a secret: she's a transgender woman. After a young life where she never quite fitted in, Eddie, an underworld linchpin, took Mia under his wing and created a brilliant assassin.

But Mia's life is turned upside down when she receives a letter from her ex, Wendy, who reveals that she's dying from cancer - and that when they were together Mia fathered a son, 11-year-old Ryan. Now Mia is his legal guardian.

Travelling to a tiny village in West Yorkshire to see the boy, Mia meets the rest of Wendy's farmhouse clan: 16-year-old Riley, 15-year-old Levi, and six-year-old Leonie.

Hit & Miss follows Mia's attempts to mix her killer instincts with her new maternal ones, in a search for her own identity. A lethal killer at the heart of a troubled family in the middle of nowhere is where the series begins.

I had no idea what to expect from this series, but after episode 1, I was transfixed, Chloe Sevigney was outstanding as the transgender assassin, what an original, and forward looking series this is.

The whole storyline was gripping, and well carried by all the cast.

As of yet, there is no news on a second series, it would be a big shame if there wasn't one after the cliff hanger ending.

A big hit, certainly not a miss.

Sky Drama's recent six episode series Hit & Miss could hardly be accused of subtlety or of following convention. And yet despite not relying on standard methods of ensuring ratings success or directing at a specific target audience the show has achieved something that so few have. Hit & Miss is an original production that succeeds in telling a story that you haven't heard before.

In short Hit & Miss tells the story of an archetypal outcast thrown by circumstance out of her comfort zone of self-chosen isolation and into the harsh realities and responsibilities of becoming guardian to a broken rural family. But things are even more complicated as the series protagonist Mia, beautifully portrayed by Chloë Sevigny, struggles to balance her new family commitments with her illegal occupation and indeed her own personal development. As Mia insists herself she's "not like other women" in fact she's not like any other character out there in film or television. What Mia is, is a damaged pre-op transsexual gun for hire with a dark and twisted past.

Using its concentration on emotion to balance its fantasy premise the series really draws you to its characters. Although the notion of a sociopathic assassin in Manchester playing house sounds really quite out there Hit & Miss triumphs in making its audience buy into this scenario on the merit of the series quality. It really is one of the best and most original series that has hit our screens as of late and is quite rightly addictive and being sold for an excellent price to boot.

Hitting the spot as a show that really makes you think with an original storyline and great characters this is certainly one series you won't want to miss.

Have been mesmerised by the TV show and pre-ordered the DVD as soon as it came available. All based on a fairly outlandish set of circumstances and the underlying plot/scenario doesn't bear much close scrutiny. Is there really that thriving a market for hit-men in Manchester? However, what carries the show are the actors, especially the children/teenagers. Chloë Sevigny is surprisingly believable as a transsexual man although I must admit to limited experience of such people in real-life. She/he is also given the right flawed character away from her 'job' to explain why she can do it without discernible impact on her.

I can, nevertheless, understand that many people will detest the show or just not get on with it.

This show hasn't made it to NZ but after reading online reviews I took a chance on it and it didn't disappoint. Like The Sopranos it combines two poopular types of drama: family and crime. Unlike the Sopranos the main character and head of household is transgender. Chloe Sevigny is abolutely perfect for the part and the cast overall is excellent.

Format: DVD
Hit & Miss, an original production by Sky and created by Paul Abbott (Shameless), follows Mia (Chloe Sevigny) a pre-op transsexual contract assassin. After returning from a typical assassination, she receives a letter from the only women she ever slept with, telling her that said woman is dying, and that Mia has a son, Ryan (Jorden Bennie). Not long after, Mia finds out that her ex has now passed away, and has made her the legal guardian Ryan, and his three half-siblings. This blended series of assassinations and family drama follows Mia's attempts to become a parent to the unorthodox family, while also trying to hide her job as a professional killer and fend off the vial landlord John, who will stop at nothing to get them, and especially Mia, of his land.

Mia is a deep and well written character, marvellously played by Chloe. Throughout the series we see many aspect of her, such as the turmoil she suffers by being different and in an unaccepting world, which are explored. This works due to Chloe, the writing and the wonderful direction. In the end I did find her a sympathetic character, despite the fact that she is a killer. I would however have liked to know more about her past. Throughout the series we gain little hints of how she came this far, especially during the final episode which explores part of her family life, but we never truly learn how, or exactly why, she became an assassin. I know it is likely they are saving the details for further series, but it would helped just to see a little more depth in to her killing past and the relationship she shares with Eddies.

The support cast is strong, with every actor well cast and most of the characters well written.

excellent tv show original and some may say unlikely but who cares when its this well acted well directed and unpredictable you will not find yourself knowing exactly whats going to happen all the time which for me is worth a little suspension of disbelief its a real shame there will be no series 2 as sky has cancelled the show
