Fourth-episode verdict: Men in Trees

A rare fourth-episode verdict here, but the third-episode was so bad compared to the first two that I felt delayed judgement was required.

Well, the fourth episode was definitely better than the third, but it still didn’t quite have the charm of the first two. Maybe I’ve just fallen out of love with it. I suspect it’s only going to be good when Jenny Bicks writes it.

A reluctant thumbs down, then. What a pity.
