  • Bret falls in with the wrong crowd again. This time it's British nobility.

    Bret has his life saved by a family of quirky British aristocrats, and ends up leading them on a bear hunt. Naturally, things go terribly wrong and Bart finds himself in a battle of wills and wits with the family patriarch, Lord Belcastle, who is so used to wielding unchallenged authority he refuses to see reason, which almost gets them all killed. Another interesting dynamic is the one between Lord Belcastle and his self-effacing, "untitled" younger brother, who is the brains of the operation. And of course, there is a lovely young maiden, daughter of Lord Belcastle, who proves tempting, tempted, and ultimately unattainable due to geography-based logistical difficulties.
