Episode Summary

The Last Crusader of San Giovanni
The team is looking for the Sacred Chalice and the treasure of Cavaliere Piamonte on behalf of tbhe Vatican when Brother John (from "The Angel of St. Edmunds") shows up being chased by bad guys. They also run into Don Nicosia who warns them off and whose daughter is attracted to John. The team track the treasure to a tombstone and are attacked and the tombstone stolen. They manage to track it from a fragment to the Don's land but John gets captured by the Don's men – when they meet with him, the Don is amenable to turning over the treasure in return for his name on the donation, but the local police chief and his men, descendents of the templars, intend that no one get the treasure and attack the house. The team find a vault with the treasure and Judson gets the drop on the attackers after everyone else gets captured and a bomb planted on them – it turns into a Mexican standoff until the others drop the police chief and Mackenzie manages to toss the bomb in a fish tank. John takes off and the chalice goes back to the Vatican.moreless

  • This episode was one of two examples of great writing on this show. Sadly the rest of the series can't compare

    Not to sound biased, but there's something to be said about Christien Anholt's guest appearances on this show. This was his second appearance, and like the first, it seemed to make the show work for once (or twice).

    In the episodes without him there seemed to be an emptiness. Perhaps the rumors are true. This was a quick attempt to capture the spirit of Relic Hunter. But what Relic Hunter had was chemistry. The two leads go along so well it oozed out of the screen. This series seemed to lack that chemistry. Except when one of the former stars of Relic Hunter - Christien Anholt - made his appearance.

    He just made this gel so well. If you want a taste of what Adventure Inc should have been like, this is an episode to see.moreless
