“Hit and Run" (Netflix) Gilbert and Sullivan wrote a song called “Things Are Seldom What They Seem” for one of their operettas, and so it is with this Israel/U.S. co-production, a nine-episode series. A happily married man, an Israeli tour guide, says goodbye to his wife who is on her way to New York to audition for a ballet company. Or is she? Did she ever get there? And what was she really doing there? We begin in Tel Aviv but events unfold that take us to the Big Apple and stay there. Everything we think we know is upended in this clever revenge scenario. We like our hero, we root for him, until we’re not sure we should or do like him; the happy marriage might not have been that happy… or even a marriage. There are secrets and espionage—we never know who to trust and it can get dizzying. Israeli actor Lior Raz (if you saw “Fauda,” another tension-filled Israeli import, you will remember him) does a fine job as a loving father who is also a violent hothead, driven to kill when his family is threatened. I do have one reservation about the series—there are too many sections that slow down and interrupt the fast pace. Its nine episodes could have been tightened to eight or even seven. But if dark and murky mystery series from other countries are a favorite of yours (as they are of mine), this one is worth watching.
