Column | Jan 3, 2015 | 9:55 AM"The Wrong Mans" (Hulu). Costars and co-creators Mathew Baynton and James Corden (the soon-to-debut new host of CBS' "Late Late Show") are back with a four-episode second season of their excellent, mistaken-identity, odd-couple, comedy-thriller-with-heart. (It's a Christmas story, so apologies for the slightly late notice; but your tree may still be up, and I'm told the holiday's not really over until Epiphany anyway.) Baynton's Sam and Corden's Phil, office mates thrown close together by circumstance, were not blown to pieces by a car bomb at the end of Season 1, as looked likely, and as the first sentence of this paragraph should have made clear, but are living under witness protection in Texas, somewhere back of beyond. Sam, the angry, practical one, thinks incessantly of home; Phil, the foolish, dreamy one ("I'm an enigma -- what you see is what you get") is making the best of his new life, until a crisis back in England changes his mind and the adventure begins. Where the first season brought international intrigue to suburban Britain, the present one is internationally set, with our heroes once again pursued from both sides of the law. As before, the comedy doesn't diminish the suspense.
