This TV show is an award-sweeper in Australia where it’s from but remains little-known elsewhere.
Suburban families live in a fragile but quiet environment – marital affairs are rampant but hidden, custody battles that were once fierce have quieted down, etc. However, when the black sheep of the community returns after a ten-year absence, everything comes back to the surface – starting with the discovery of a dead body.
Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline) is excellent here, and he’s supported by an amazing cast. Tangle is like a toned-down Big Little Lies, or a more cynical Parenthood.
