Lovejoy appears on a popular TV talk show in an "Antiques Road Show'-type segment and Moira, the program's beautiful hostess, challenges him to prove his reputation to "divine" real antiques from the fake and mundane. Lovejoy does just that before a stunned audience, but the spectacular demonstration was staged beforehand in collusion with Moira, who hopes Lovejoy's success will not just be limited to her bedroom. Eric disapproves of Lovejoy's breach of ethics, and Tink cautions him that his materialistic exploitation of his mystical talents as a divvy may jeopardize his gift. Ignoring their warnings Lovejoy enters into a devious collaboration with Charlie Gimbert and puts his reputation, self-esteem, and gift at risk. Written by

Lovejoy episodes
4 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have watched and watched every episode, several times each, and as they are repeated, over a very long period of time. There simply is nothing quite as perfect, quite as repeatedly entertaining, and the ONLY question I ever had was, "How is this possible?".

Whichever location was used in whichever episode, the same individuality shines through. Even though Lovejoy IS a bit of sharp antiques dealer he is only A BIT of...not a crook, not really a villain, just a smart lad making a few bob IF the circumstances permit.

And the other characters? Where else in the past few years has ANY series given so much balance to every member of a cast?

Somewhere at the start EVERYbody got it right, which explains why it is so unique.
