The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 5: Return to Sender

Gene Bradley is looking to leave the rainy London scene and head off to the beaches of France far from Mr Parminters covert request. Even on the beaches of France with a beautiful lady and with his adoring fans he cannot get away from the life of an agent.  The secret locations for missile launchers are now known but have to kept away from pursuing thugs. When this information was unmistakably given away, Gene has to retrieve this data but also save his damsel in distress on land and sea.

Personal Synopsis

Return to Sender is the fifth episode of this series and it shows a slow evolution into a more ridiculous series. There are countless moments where the acting seems far too amateur to have aired on English television and that might be saying a lot. This storyline of a “microdot” with secret information being accidentally given to a young girl is the catch but the story lacks even a hint of credibility (which it should have in these cases). The setting is great as I have always loved the southern coast of France. Not one of the best episodes but relatively easy to watch.
