Most helpful critical review

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"
