The Protectors Season 2 Episode 17: Sugar and Spice

A powerful man, Sir Charles Standish, is set to sign a series of important documents for a corporate merger. A threatening letter delivered by hand had enclosed photographs of his daughter with the intent to stop his signing of those documents. The Protectors are hired to keep his daughter, Vicky, safe and away from these dangerous men. Harry and the team are held to the task of keeping eye on a young lady, this being a bigger task than expected.  As time is running short, the team of thugs close in on the house where the Protectors and Vicky are hiding out but Vicky must not be made aware of the danger she is in.

Personal Synopsis

A cute story where the director edits in child-like circus musical themes into the show. The premise of the show is to hide away a young girl subject to a kidnapping or worse, however the Protectors must not let her know her current situation. The storyline follows this young lady as she finds the situation quirky and somewhat unbelievable. A good episode with happy music during the fight scene, surreal.
