Brilliant Comedy Series Nobody Should Pass By
on July 25, 2012
I decided to do a "Blind Buy" for this T.V. series after reading the highly positive reviews it has here on Amazon.ca
I had never even heard of this show before finding it here on Amazon, and my Blind purchase was a total Pay-Off!
I have always enjoyed the quirky wit and famous "One Liners" of Bruce Campbell, and boy does he deliver them in this hillarious short lived T.V. series. The show is set at the turn of the 19th century on the fictional French-controlled island of Pulau-Pulau.
Jack Stiles (Bruce Campbell) plays an American secret agent sent there by President Thomas Jefferson. While there, he meets his British contact and love interest, English spy Emilia Rothschild. Together, the two work to stop Napoleon and various other threats to the United States. When trouble shows up Jack Stiles quickly transforms into the "Daring Dragoon who is a mix between one of the 3 muskateers and sherlock holmes.
The sets are well done, and story lines keep you glued to the screen and the actors are brilliant. Vern Troyer (mini-me) from the Austin Powers films plays a madly insane version of Napoleon Bonaparte that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter.
If you have never heard of this show, but are thinking of giving it a GO.....you will not be sorry.
