Trivia

According to the show's creator, Rowan Joffe, Tin Star was an opportunity to explore classic cinematic themes, including illicit love, revenge, grief, corruption and public figures on dangerous paths of self-discovery. See more »

Goofs

A Canadian town that size would not have their own police department. They would be protected by a detachment of the RCMP. Additionally Canadians do not refer to the RCMP as a "federal," police force. See more »

Nice one
29 September 2017 | by trinnisiaSee all my reviews

I watch a lot of different kind of show, movies etc but I don't do review very often. This show I think deserves to write something about it. It's totally different than I expected. I thought it will be another small town cop show. The only reason I started watching was Tim Roth (I've still haven't seen all the episodes). He's one of my favourites actors. I wouldn't say I like his recent movies (except "Chronic"-brilliant one) Anyway, I don't want to write too much about the plot, don't want to spoil it. The show has a very strange pace, atmosphere but there is something about it - I want to keep watching. It starts with the scene where Roth character and his family stopped at the gas station and unmasked man kills his son and shots his wife. We witness what happens next. The police searches the killer, Roth is drinking and his daughter is not happy about it. She meets her brother's killer (not knowing its him). It sounds like really crappy cop show but please give it a chance:) Also the music is annoying and hypnotising at the same time. That's why I think "Tin star" is unusual. It is set in beautiful landscape. "Tin star" is "Northern exposure" meets Tarantino kind of thing
