The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 13: Action!

Gene Bradley is coming to the United Kingdom to film a movie. He is being followed by a investigative fan/journalist and she is documenting his every move. But something is wrong, he was expected by Mr. Parminter but has yet to arrive.  Gene has been occupied with filming his movie but hasn’t really been feeling himself lately. His foggy memory is coming back but not much is clear enough to know what is going on until he is shooting his last scene for the movie.

Personal Synopsis

An interesting attempt by Director Barry Morse to change the style of series by taken out Gene Bradley and allowing others to fill in the time. What we got was an episode that is clever enough to await the outcome and a little bit less of good ol’ Gene. I can’t say that I thought this episode of a great one. This episode is so vastly different from its predecessors that it feels like a breath of fresh air. The young journalist documents the scenes as if the narrator and the leading dialogue does leave you with the unpredictability of the story. Well done with what you had Barry.
