TV review: Drug-smuggling 'Red Widow' is hard to get behind

Radha Mitchell's soccer mom-drug runner is more a complicit conniver than an innocent trapped in a bad situation on the new ABC series.

To create a successful antihero, a writer must pull off a narrative sleight of hand, convincing the audience that black is white, or at least an acceptable shade of gray. The trick is to pull it off without getting caught, which is the first failure of ABC's high-aspiring but poorly executed "Red Widow."
