Episode 3: Egypt
I didn't realize I hadn't posted my thoughts on episode 2. I enjoyed it a lot, more than I did episode 1. I felt that the relationship between Hooten and Alex worked better in the second episode now since they knew more about each other. The banter felt more natural.
I was afraid Jane Seymour's character would be one of those overbearing mother caricatures but she seemed pleasant enough and she seemed truly sad that Alex didn't want to help pick out wedding dresses.
I loved the indecisive alligator and how both Hooten and Alex tried to get it to eat each other.
The Mafia was okay but they did seem like pretty heavy villains to trot out so early.
I kept expecting to the Pyroviles pop up since the Sibylline prophecies were at the heart of this episode.
A little back story on Hooten here. Not much but enough for the moment.
Let's hope that those numbers are enough to get it renewed. Maybe they'll take international viewership into the equation as well though I don't know how well it's performing on the CW.
