The Protectors Season 1 Episode 13: The Numbers Game

The Numbers Game Title Shot

A beautiful day in the Mediterranean, great view and some drinks but in the middle of this paradise something is afoot. A young lady is in trouble for mixing in with the wrong people, money trafficking.  She has to convey information when called upon. An established heart surgeon is mixed up in this too. The racket has gone for too long so the Protectors will need to find the spanish connection.

Personal Synopsis

A drug smuggling ring using unsuspecting regular peoples vehicles to transport the drugs. This story was set in an exotic area of the spanish coast but still didnt strike my interest much because of the tendency of these type of shows to have stories of drug smuggling. Its become old hat to me. This episode could have been better if the writers could put in some originality but they failed to do so.
