Largo Winch

Show Summary

One day, Largo Winch had nothing, the next day he inherited 385 billion dollars and leadership of one of the most powerful multinational companies in the world: Group W. He also inherited many enemies, in particular the Adriatic Commission, who are responsible for his father's death. To aid Largo in his fight against the Commission and against the board of Group W, who are none to happy that he's determined to root out the greed and corruption that are common practice at Group W, he forms a team of advisers consisting of his longtime friend Simon Ovronnaz, Georgy Kerensky, a former KGB agent who's high-tech expert, ex-CIA agent Joy Arden and his father's adviser, John Sullivan. Largo is also struggling with feelings about his father, who never acknowledged him. Largo Winch was originally a famous European comic, by Francq and Van Hamme (currently 13 volumes published).

  • One of the best shows of my childhood!

    I accidentally happened across an episode of Largo Winch about 3 months ago and was totally hooked on the show right away. I have seen almost every episode (there are 39 episodes in total - including the 2 hour pilot) and am currently trying to record all of the episodes on DVD. (To date I have 18 recorded) The show has a lot of action and adventure and in addition, the episodes usually have a sub-plot as well as the main plot - so the episodes are never boring, move along well, and capture your interest. I feel that all of the actors in the cast were well picked and really play their roles well and are believable - as well as they have the chemistry required to make a show work and they all interact well with each other. This is definitely one of my all-time favorite shows, and I highly recommend it to anyone. Currently, it is playing on Showcase at 10:00 AM - EST in case you're wondering. A point of interest for the women...(in case you're not familiar with the show - and I can't resist saying this) Paulo Seganti is a major hottie and makes watching the show worthwhile just to FOR THE GUYS....Sydney Penny plays Joy Arden - Largo's female bodyguard - she does an awesome job and could very well be worth your interest....moreless
