I loved this series in the mid 80's. Ollie Tobias reprises his role as Jack Vincent from "Smuggler". Jack has now been deported as a Smuggler and is bound for Norfolk Island a penal colony in the Pacific. Unfortunately, he is forced into mutiny due to the savage and sadistic treatment from the ship's captain, his own brother in law. Jack survives a shipwreck and the rest of the series sees him trying to outwit the Ship's Captain (who also survived) and elude capture and execution. Oliver Tobias is exceptionally goood as Jack Vincent; continuing and expanding upon his role as Jack Vincent in "Smuggler". Temuera Morrison is also great in his role as Maru; the son of a Moari Chieftain who is both Jack's friend and "master". This series was well written and every episode really enjoyable a "must" buy if you already have "Smuggler" on DVD. The scenery is also stunning. I highly recommend this series. P.S. do not confuse this with Gene Barry's series "The Adventurer" or you will be surely disappointed!

Smuggler - The Complete Series [DVD] (1981) (2-Disc Set) wasn't one of writer Richard Carpenter's biggest hits, so it's surprising that it got a fairly lavish though now almost completely forgotten sequel in Adventurer. An ambitious co-production with New Zealand television, it throws out the original series' Dick Turpin-like template, which saw Oliver Tobias' disgraced naval officer rebelling against the petty tyranny of 18th century England by outwitting the revenue men on a weekly basis in family friendly half hour adventures, as well as the supporting cast - no romantic interest, child sidekick or wise local gentry turning a blind eye here. More significantly it darkens the tone, with Vincent sentenced to transportation to the penal colonies and finding himself in the custody of his hated brother-in-law, who has gone from using our hero's sister as a punchbag to finding an outlet for his sadism in His Majesty's Navy, lashing prisoners and throwing the sick overboard to prevent them infecting the rest of the crew. It's not long before Vincent's taken over the ship and cast him adrift, but his plans to sail for the Americas are equally short-lived, his drunken and scurvy crew causing the ship to be wrecked in the first storm and subsequently finding himself and his two surviving companions at the mercy of Temuera Morrison's arrogant Maori, unscrupulous traders, a mystery woman, a cult of shipwreck survivors, a tribal war and - wouldn't you know it - having another unwanted family reunion with his increasingly insane brother-in-law...Read more ›

Having recently bought "Smuggler", which I enjoyed immensely, I thought I would try this follow-up series. Sadly, it was very much just a vehicle to carry on with the central character from that series. Whereas the stories in the earlier program were good adventure yarns, with likeable characters, "The Adventurer" became very dark, and the stories were slow and lacking any humour, populated by surly and unpleasant people. The Jack Vincent in the first series would surely never have been caught, and these tales never bothered to explain how it came to pass that he was. It was no more than okay if one had nothing else to do and could not sleep! I will undoubtedly watch episodes of "Smuggler" again, but I will not be bothering to keep the disc for the "Adventurer"

This is the smashing follow-up to Smuggler. It's even better than the first series with a darker slant to the adventurers of Captn Jack and the New Zealand locations make it a lovely winter night's TV viewing.
