Simply Delightful
2 May 2018 | by GunnersMateSee all my reviews

With only a pair of episodes left in this short-lived series, More Than a Game focuses on the things that make this show so delightful. We have our quirky townsfolk working together (...at least most of the time, which is even better...), there is a rivalry with Dunbraken Arms (with secret spying, covert actions, and ringers), and Hamish supports his fellow Lochdubhians without strictly walking the line of law. Funny with bits of terrific relationship cementing it all together. Simply the best.
