Fun, frivolous and enjoyable
11 June 2017
Is it silly? Yes. Is it implausible? Yes. Is it entertaining? Yes. It's a pity the stories aren't a bit longer as they would give Lady Alex the chance to explore more false leads and Hooten the opportunity to despatch more villains. As its is, Lady Alex has to solve a riddle that has confounded archaeologists for decades, if not centuries, in a matter of minutes. Yes, she always does with a little help from Hooten, but this is a small issue along with the fact that the two leads are essentially bullet proof. Once you accept this you can sit back, enjoy the exotic locations, the ongoing battle of the sexes between the sparring leads, and the lively action sequences.
Fingers crossed for season two.
