One of those series that just hit the right balance.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hit & Miss [DVD] (DVD)
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. ChloŽ 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.

Well I did say that my experience of trangender groups was limited - as is obviously my knowledge of the formal labelling of transgender people. Suffice it to say - I'm sorry!

m x - She's a transgender woman not a transsexual woman! Extremely offensive comment.
