Golden Sexism
29 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the less pleasing aspects of this as well as other UK series of the time like 'Danger Man' and even 'The Avengers,' was the strong vein of sexism that ran through them now and then. Misogynist behaviour was teemed to be mildly amusing as some 'silly young girls' got their comeuppance.

One of Simon's unseen best friends is getting married to a spoilt heiress, who 'needs' a lesson in manners. And the Saint takes it upon himself to do this. You'd think he would have better things to do but there you go...

The lesson takes the form of Simon conniving the wealthy girl to lose all her belongings and passport (stolen for the moment by Simon himself), so, that she has to accompany him on a long trek through the hills to the next town in Spain.

Along the way she learns how to do her share and enjoy sleeping beneath the stars and living the simple life. Thus reaching their destination a far better person than she started out.

So far, so good, not a bad thing to learn really. But Simon's casual cruelty and the over the knee spanking he administers, does leave a slightly bitter taste in the mouth with it's overt 'man is the superior animal' overtones.

Not one for the feminists to watch!
