The Zoo Gang Season 1 Episode 4: The Lion Hunt

A revolutionary fighter is captured at the airport for having a false passport. The authorities did not want El Leon captured but now cannot release him legally. The Zoo Gang is hired to break El Leon out of jail but it appears to be a setup. Someone else wants El Leon.


Personal Synopsis

The Lion Hunt plays out like the typical kidnapping scenario you would see throughout the ITC shows produced. Roger Delgado plays the revolutionary Pedro and does a splendid job acting in this episode. I enjoyed the show for the acting as I have throughout the series but also I am beginning to appreciate the concept of the show as well. A good episode.
