What The Critics Say

  • While a slapstick, British action-adventure series might not sound like CW material, the fact that it’s so different from the rest of the network’s typical programming is what makes it fit in perfectly. The show is summer television escapism at its finest. — LaToya Ferguson, Variety
  • This is pure escapism, shot on location in London, South Afrida, Russia and Cambodia. It’s funny. It’s fun. — Scott D, Pierce, Salt Lake Tribune
  • Hooten & the Lady tries for madcap adventure but settles for mild charm. — Mike Hale, New York Times
