Hooten & the Lady - Rome

British Museum curator Lady Alex Lindo-Parker (Ophelia Lovibond) crosses paths with treasure hunter Ulysses Hooten (Michael Landes) in Rome where she is attempting to excavate a site for the museum and spend some pre-wedding time with her mother (Jane Seymour) but soon becomes wrapped up in Hooten's search for the prophetic long-lost Sibylline Book. As with the series first adventure, "Rome" is another B-movie adventure (although this time more of a knock-off of National Treasure or The DaVinci Code than Romancing the Stone). Finding the book will mean defacing the Sistine Chapel, fighting the Italian Mob, and very little wedding planning or working on the job Alex was sent to Rome to accomplish. Still, as with the first episode of the series, there is some fun to be had.
