Episode Summary

The Angel of St. Edmunds
Adventure Inc. is recruited by St. Edmunds Abbey to retrieve a stolen gold and jeweled Angel that is believed to carry protective powers. They are contacted by a monk, Brother John, who is sworn to silence and thinks he knows where the Angel is. The trail leads to London where mobsters try to take out Lucy Wyle, a bar and casino owner who has the Angel and refuses to sell, so the gang go ahead and steal it - Judson and Mac break in while Gabe distracts Lucy. But Lucy catches on and ransoms Gabe for the Angel, but the mobsters show up and break up the whole thing. The gang trounces them, Brother John retires from the Abbey, and Lucy returns the Angel.moreless

  • If only Adventure Inc was as good as this.

    This episode and its sequel: "The Last Crusader of San Giovanni" are not only designed to be paired together, but they're also the only time we see the show really gel and demonstrate how well an episode can be with good writing, directing and a group of people who know how to act.

    Personally, I believe credit goes to Christien Anholt, who really pulled this episode and its sequel together to make them the smoothest of the series. His character of Brother John is funny and endearing. His role is priceless.

    he doesn't steal the scenes, he makes them better and those working with him shine as well.

    Highly recommended! Sorry the rest of the show wasn't as good as these two.moreless

    • Brother John: You realize, my son, that violence is never a solution.
      Rohan: You ready to put your faith to the test? (Mac slugs him)
      Brother John: Okay, so I was wrong.

    • Judson: I'm not sure I want to put Gabe in a compromising position.
      Gabe: Do I have a say in this? Some compromising positions are better than others...

  • NOTES (3)

    • The Port of Bristol, England stood in for the London Docks.

    • Christien Anholt previously played Nigel Bailey on AI's predecessor show, Relic Hunter. Much of the production crew and writers on AI were involved in that show too. The character he plays here is initially almost the antithesis of the overly chatty Nigel and one suspects the "going off thing" at the end might either be intended as an in-joke, or a set up for him to return in the future.

    • This show marks the typical mid-season switchover for similarly produced shows (Highlander, Relic Hunter) where having wrapped up the first half of filming in the U.S./Canada, they jump over to Western Europe for the second half of the season.
