OK-ish travelogue but Ronnie's not a presenter
26 February 2017 | by loveagoodstorySee all my reviews

Ronnie's snooker pedigree and record are both exemplary and he's nearly always a good interview in any tournament he's playing in. Normally when he's talking, it's about himself or the game of snooker and he's got plenty to say on both.

This programme is a travelogue, with each episode taking him to a different U.S. city that they can both explore and play pool in, the latter for the hustle of the title.

Something like half of the episode is Ronnie playing pool, with a matches in local clubs being compressed into a few minutes. That means you don't get much Ronnie-play to watch, with none of the drama of a normal match being allowed to build.

The rest of the episode is a tour of some highlights of the city, sometimes including things relevant to pool such as a factory or supplier. Unfortunately, Ronnie has little to say and when he does it's just fairly inane lad chitchat. His co-host does his best to keep the situation alive but sadly Ronnie ain't no presenter. At times, he comes across as bored with what's in front of him, like a 20-y.o. on holiday with his girlfriend, dutifully doing the sightseeing excursion while eyeing up the nearest pub.

Watch it if you're a thorough Ronnie fan or you're interested in the subject matter. Otherwise don't expect it to draw you in - Ronnie might as well not be there for large parts of it, bless him.
