The Protectors Season 1 Episode 6: It Was All Over in Leipzig

It Was All Over In Leipzig Title Shot

There are caches of weapons coming into town and the Protectors have been hired by the government to find out where they are coming from. An old friend of Contessas, Mr Palmer, has joined the effort to find the trail of weapons.  Harry is suspicious but the Contessa should know what she’s doing. Harry is far too familiar with the people behind the coup attempt now only to show the Contessa.

Personal Synopsis

A great episode about a coup attempt and the shipments of weapons to help the coup along. The story is somewhat predictable but none the less a fun watch. I do question the motive for why would someone want to act out a coup especially without much background.

The Protectors Season 1 Episode 5: Ceremony for the Dead

Ceremony For The Dead Title Shot

Harry calls in the help of the Contessa from far away because of a possible kidnapping of the President. Harry and the team fake the kidnapping to bring out the real extremist into the forefront. But the kidnappers are smart enough to not fall for such a trick. However there may be an even bigger trick that has been played out, with the presidents life at stake.

Personal Synopsis

An episode of a power grab after the death of the leader. This must happen quite a lot but in this case its the presidents wife, a nice twist. The exotic location was enough to keep me interested but the story was relatively simple.  All in all this episode was not one of the strongest.
