Great series with breath taking scenery views of the Pacific Islands,
This review is from: The Adventurer - The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
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!
