The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 2: Poor Little Rich Girl

A young free spirited woman named Suzy Dolman is going to give her complete inheritance to a communist country. This poses an extreme threat to democratic countries around the world. Gene is sent off to persuade this young lady to rethink this decision and the agents of the communist country are also there to persuade her for their own ends. Gene is hijacked by Suzy along the road but Gene ends up with the last word. Suzy’s insistence to give up her money on principle, forces Gene to intervene on the worlds behalf. Now that the tables have turned it is a run against the clock to stop the business from being turned over.

Personal Synopsis

Suzy Dolman is a young woman who is disillusioned with society’s greed and evilness because of  money’s power. She is willing to do the worst and give that money and power to those whom would only make the world worse. This episode shows a compelling situation that required The Adventurer to expose the true intentions of the men that would take Suzy’s business and use it for evil. The episode is fun to watch if not for the scenes of southern France but also to watch another great actor John Savident playing the consul.

The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 23: The Lady Lilith

The Lady Lilith Title Shot

Sir William has died and has only left one daughter and no heirs to his wealth and castle. Sir Liones lays claims to the castle since he is nearest male of kin. Lady Lilith has been keeping the castle since the age of 14 when her father became an invalid. When he died he requested that his daughter would take the inheritance but this is disputed by the law. Lilith will not yield lightly. Sir Lancelot is forced to deal with the Lady Lilith and he has his hands full. There must be a solution that will allow both parties to be happy.

Personal Synopsis

A charming tale of a woman who would not give up what she feels is rightfully hers and defending it. Shirley Cooklin plays the stubborn woman and is perfectly match with Richard Leech’s indignant knight character. This is a good watch and I would consider it one of the best in the series.

The Adventures of Sir Lancelot Episode 21: Knight Errant

Knight Errant Title Shot

Lady Helen’s father has died and the kingdom is willed to her but there is pressure for her to marry King Balmain. She is in love with Sir Oringle and wishes to marry him, but he has gone missing. Lady Bragwaine seeks out camelot to stop the unwanted marriage and to find the missing Sir Oringle.  Lancelot goes to the castle to get answers and gets himself locked up. Lady Helen finds out that Sir Lancelot is locked up in the castle and finds out that Oringle is also held inside the castles walls. A daring escape with the help of Lady Helen allows Sir Lancelot to release Sir Oringle but there is more danger to face.

Personal Synopsis

An episode in Black & White which is odd since the last few episodes were in colour. Sir Kay is used as the comic relief as Sir Lancelot fight another attempt to take a kingdom by marriage. It is by far the most comical episode of the series, with fun being made of Sir Kay and his exaggerated stories of victories.
