American spy/adventurer Jack Stiles is sent by Thomas Jefferson to the tiny South Pacific island of Polau Polau to work with British spy Emilia Rothschild to stop the advances of the French Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte in his bid for world conquest. Written by
A hilarious spoof/action series about 19th century America that probably was too historic for most audiences. This was one of the most entertaining comedies on TV at the time, one thankfully without a laugh track or common sitcom jokes. Modern-day references were thrown in, courtesy of Bruce Campbell's excellent deadpan delivery.
Bruce was very good as Jack Styles, the reluctant American spy who was also the Daring Dragoon, a masked hero who thwarts the French army and Napoleon's advancement. He was teamed up with British spy Emilia, played by the stunning Angela Dotchin. These two had an excellent on-screen chemistry, along the lines of Steed and Mrs. Peel from The Avengers, and David and Maddie from Moonlighting. And the casting of Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer as Napoleon was a funny idea in and of itself.
The action scenes were wild. The comedy was hilarious, with especially subtle digs at the French. The opening theme song was catchy, creative and very musical. My only beef was that every half-hour episode seemed far too rushed, and I was left wanting more. Extremely fun, but should have been on much much longer, and so many were left not knowing Jack.
