Nicer than can be expected from the outline - with unexpected charm
supermaggie28 February 2018
The plot description comes across like the garden variety blueprint for a show for bored housewifes: A(n attrative) con man (can't go without the crime element) poses as priest and while hiding out in a small town solves a lot of problems and even finds some romance (hello Thorn birds and Thorn birds-fans among the housewifes). Not only does it sound cheesy, to a certain extent it is. It basically is a cheesy, clichéd, run-of-the-mill show, but it has enough charm and provides so much harmless fun, that you do not mind too much. In its best moments it even reminds of the New British Cinema flicks - and not just because of the occasional redheads. The problem-solving is a bit easy and ideal, but it seems that the authors gave it enough thought to come up with charming and helpful solutions to the many human/everyday problems Maik encounters. So even if you usually react allergic to cheesy housewifes- or past-retirement - entertainment (like I usually do), give this nice little show a chance, it might paint a smile on your face - and who can say no to that?
