The Zoo Gang Season 1 Episode 2: Mindless Murder

Three young ladies are killed in three separate places in connection with an extortion case. Some of the Zoo Gang want to look in on this investigation and collect the reward money. An amazing jewel owned by famous actress Lyn Martin is threatened to be stolen by the extortionists. The gang takes it upon themselves to save the jewel and expose the criminals.  Stephen is questioned by the police while Lyn Martin is putting herself in danger.  The trade must be made to save Lyn from injury or death.

Personal Synopsis

An episode with a great plot line and spectacular lighting. This episode allowed for some superb individual acting performances from Lilli Palmer and John Mills as well. The actors dynamics were working hard for this quartet of aging veteran resistance fighters to not outshine each other. It was a good episode to watch a few times.

The Zoo Gang Season 1 Episode 1: Revenge: Post Dated

A jeweller recognises a customer that is from his past. A past that holds the war, the gestapo and betrayal. Boucher turned over the Zoo Gang some 28 years ago to the Gestapo which resulted in Manouche’s husbands death. The old team comes together to get justice for Claude , Manouches husband, and to put Boucher behind bars for his crimes. A rash of robberies recently broadens the effort to find a connection between Boucher and the recent crimes. The Zoo Gang  begin an elaborate scheme to trick Boucher to be caught red handed for all of his crimes.

Personal Synopsis

A touching start to this 6 episode series. An old team of resistance fighters during World War 2 must come back together to avenge the death of one of their partners. Betrayal is a strong enough motivator to seek justice or create your own especially when it involves a friend or a partner. This episode is well written and enjoyable to watch. The Zoo Gang comes back again to fight crimes and get rewards for capturing wanted criminals, all to fund a hospital.
