Format: DVD
In 80's tv dominated by mega bucks and shoulder pad soaps, this pulp inspired series was like a breath of fresh air. It was set in the South Pacific in the late thirties on a fictional chain of islands split between the French and the Japanese. The "Gold Monkey" was a bar run by the sophisticated and well dodgy "Bon Chance" Louie. Played by Roddy McDowall (apart from pilot episode), he was a former member of the French Foreign Legion and inmate of Devil's Island. Other colourful characters included Jake Cutter, pilot of the Goose flying boat, and his alcoholic co-pilot Corky. His other side-kick was a one-eyed dog who appeared to understand several languages. Love interest was provided for Jake in the form of Sarah - torch singer and American spy. Another spy was Rev. Tenboom who worked for the Nazis, but had more interest in the local maidens than his German masters. The Eurasian Princess Koji was a villain in the classic "Dragon Lady" mode who had an army that appeared to be from another century, including a samurai called Todo.

If unashamed escapism is your thing, you could do a lot worse than check out this excellent piece of tongue in cheek adventure.

I have fond memories of watching this cool show on BBC1 in 1982, so I'm fanatically impressed with the wonderful Fabulous Films for acquiring the DVD rights to Tales Of The Gold Monkey. They have produced a beautiful DVD box set for this show, the menus alone are amazing even before you actually watch an episode. Also included is a detailed booklet with information about each episode. Disk six has some extra bonus material including a documentary with key people on the show talking about their experiences during the production. Excellent purchase.

I absolutely adored this series when I was a kid and was so excited when I saw it was finally out on DVD and it didn't disappoint. It is pure escapism, very much in the Indianna Jones mode. Other reviewers have given brilliant synopses of the series so I won't bother with that, I'll just say although this box set appears to have a hefty price tag it's got good detail, good quality, lots of nice extras and a kind of souvenir booklet with more depth on each episode. Good buy.

A much more innocent age of action adventure. No lurid violence, no swearing, no explicit sex, no extreme horror. Just good old fashioned daring-do and near scrapes with the good guys getting the upper hand in the end.

Likeable cast, especially the dog, not too daft storylines - good easy watching to settle down to. Don't expect great special effects - there weren't any in those days. You're expected to not mind the low-tech effects and engage a little imagination to make it come alive.

For a likeable adventure series and for buck per hour of watching its a good buy.

If you are looking for historical accuracy in your viewing then forget this item but if all you want is pure escapist fun then this is for you. Its corny and lacks quality of line but that is also what makes this fun to watch and forget reality. For me it is about remembering life when it was simpler and fun to be alive.

I expected to be disappointed by very B quality viewing. I have often got old DVDs or films only to think...uh...why did I like this the first time round?
NOT the case here. The quality is great. They may well be "B" film stories and the fight scenes are definitely "theatrical" as someone else wrote, but it's GREAT. Really Great stuff. If you are a fan of "pulp" type novels and fiction or even the modern equivalent like say Hellboy graphic novels, then get this DVD. It has it all. Evil Nazis up to no good, a "goodish" nazi, a cruel and super sexy evil princess, the various "good girl" hotties and interviews with the cast presently, many years later.
Don Bellisario still makes the best stuff, like NCIS and this shows why. Oh and yeah...this Gold Monkey stuff PRE_dated Indiana Jones, so THERE Steven Spielberg!

Tales of the Gold Monkey (1982) is my favourite childhood TV series. I used to watch Tales every week when it was aired on BBC in 1982. I was twelve years old and wanted Cutter's ''Goose'', a Grumman Goose amphibian which he flew between the Pacific Islands where each adventure unfolded. I also loved Goose's outfit, the US army officer's summer service cap and the leather jacket. Let's face it, Goose was cool, cooler even than Indiana Jones, another of my favourites. I was disappointed to say the least when Tales was cancelled after one season. No more weekly evening adventures (!) Anyway, this box set, the complete season (1982-3) is superb and the TV show has held up well after all these years. Now I can watch it again and again and remember the days when I was Goose during the summer holidays. If you loved Tales, this box set will not disappoint. Stars:
Stephen Collins as Jake Cutter
Jeff MacKay as Corky
Marta DuBois as Princess Koji
John Calvin as Reverend Willie Tenboom
John Fujioka as Todo
Roddy McDowall as Bon Chance Louie
Caitlin O'Heaney as Sarah Stickney White
Les Jankey as Gushie the Waiter
and
Leo the Dog as Jack
Created by Donald P Bellisario, stock footage of the ''Goose'' and the name ''Gushie'' later made appearances in his show Quantum Leap, the latter being one of the Quantum Leap project team. Bit of useless trivia there for the die hard fans.
Buy and Enjoy!
