My 342nd Review: Episode One was more than decent....
If Lone Star can avoid becoming repetitive and soapy then it might be on to something good. Like The Riches last year it has the simple idea of a con man, Robert Allen (Played with charm to the fore by James Wolk), who discovers life is richer without crime when offered an executive job in a Texas mega-oil industry.
Not only is he a con man, his father is too, then to sweeten the plot there's there's the two women in Drew's life.
All in all, this was pretty good stuff: but the question is, is there is enough here to make you wonder how it's going to work out? I think so - and more than that I want to see how it's going to work out - can he be the executive or will he opt for the simple life in Midland, r will his father tire of it all, and there's bound to be other spanners in the works - it's good stuff, folks.
Anyways, we did really enjoy the first episode, but the viewing figures of 4.1 million don't bode well. It is a lot more interesting than just junk TV and if you like drama I'd definitely say it's worth catching an episode....
