tv show review: Hooten and the Lady

An interesting new show. A bit of a cross between Indiana Jones and Romancing the stone, this show isn’t too bad. A b level show, it isn’t quite up to the larger budget shows on the big networks.

There is a lot of really amazing scenery, beautiful imagery, fun byplay between the leads and an interesting quest for a missing archaeologist. The down side is that the villain is a cliche that if they had just done a bit more writing could have been a very good opening.

I enjoyed this show and I am giving it another look. It is being made and broadcast by one of the smaller UK networks, so I am thinking that they are learning. Enjoyable and watchable as long as you aren’t expecting too much
