  • Sydney and Nigel become involved in looking for Casanova's Book of Love.

    5.5
    The story starts with Sydney and Nigel following a soccer star Roberto to Italy for Casanova's Book of Love. Lots of admiring glances are directed Roberto's way including Sydney's and his agent Kate. However, the investigation proceeds to find some clues through some ancient letters at an exhibition of Casanova's. Sydney and Nigel follow the clues to a cellar where they find the Book. However, someone is following them and steals the relic. Sydney and Nigel then figure out that a group of conservative monks are involved and enter their church vault and recover the Book - after fighting off the monks. But the Book is stolen again! This time, they discover that Kate stole the Book to get back at Roberto. The soccer star realises that he doesn't really need the Book and donates to Sydney.



    This episode is ok when concentrating on the relic hunting but is constantly thrown off-course with slapstick. Many scenes are shown with women falling under Roberto's spell (including Sydney!) and the fight scenes are more humorous than exciting.moreless
  • Roberto wants the "Book of Love".

    6.6
    Roberto asks Sydney to help him find Casanova's Book of Love - although noone is sure it is even real.



    While Roberto ignores his soccer committments his manager Kate gets very annoyed and makes it known to Nigel and Sydney she isn't happy about the situation.



    Sydney finds clues on some old paperwork on show for an exhibition and uses a light to bring up the hidden message which Nigel translates.



    Following the clues they finally find the book, only to have it stolen a couple of times before tracking it down to a church who collect such items which they deem as 'inappropraite'.



    It was interesting enough and had a good sub-story about Roberto and Kate.moreless
