It's always the same old people!, 1 August 2014
Author: dbdumonteil

The first "Surcouf" spawns a sequel with the same foursome:Gérard Barray ,as the dashing hero ,Antonella Lualdi and Terence Morgan,whose parts have been fleshed out,as the corsair's impossible love and the hateful false-hearted officer ,and Genevieve Casile ,as the faithful wife who , on the contrary ,walks on.

We are spared ,except for the final credits ,the unbearable ditty by the Compagnons De La Chanson from the first episode ,and instead,we can hear the old folk song "Aupres De Ma Blonde".This first effort featured Josephine ,this one boasts Napoleon in the flesh (played by Gianni Esposito).

Surcouf is chivalrous and treats his prisoners with the respects which their position commands;On the other hand,Lord Blackwood ,the English villain, throws them into a dark dungeon and hangs them without further ado.

The English doctor has probably got a Mickey Mouse degree:not only the tattoo does not worry him at all,but Surcouf fools him into believing he's got scarlet fever;and finding sailors all talking French on a so called English ship is only natural.

The ending promised a third "Surcouf" which never saw the light of day. History tells us that he lived happily ever after and that he had many many children.
