The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 17: Going, Going…

There is a bidding war for a Ming Dynasty vase which Gene Bradley outbids the many bidders and takes home the chinese treasure. This vase has a secret that holds greater value than its reputation as an antiquity. Gene looks like he’s playing a double game after a foreign scientist goes missing and Bradley isn’t willing to divulge any information to Mr. Parminter. The auction of the vase was a ruse concocted to instead transfer some very important scientific formulas. Bradley seeks to get his money back and to solve the mystery of the Ming Vase.

Personal Synopsis

I must admit that I will be kinder to this episode. Going, Going.. works in some ways most of the preceding episodes have not by incorporating a more complex storyline, one about a scientist who embeds his formula on a fake Ming dynasty vase, this is by far more creative. Burt Kwouk, guest appears in this episode as a Japanese goverment official and an unfortunate stereotype of asian businessmen. A good episode worth a watch.
