When adventure calls...no place is too far, no risk is too high, and no task is too difficult for The Ultimate Adventure Company. From his base in the Florida Keys, Judson Cross has assembled a team of young renegades, each with his own extraordinary skills and willing to risk it all for the love of adventure. Their methods may not be orthodox, they may risk their own safety, but they always get the job done. Written by
Primarily for Michael Biehn fans, Secondarily for a good time waster
I was very surprised when I first saw this show...it was 11:00pm on a Sunday night, and I was flipping through channels for something to listen to while I studied for a test I had the next day. My head lifted from the book I was reading and my eyes popped wide open when I heard the words, "...in this premier episode starring Michael Biehn." Needless to say I got pretty excited being that the guy is an incredible actor and one of my favorites to see on screen. But, when I saw the gay title pop up, with the words, "Adventure Inc.", I couldn't help but laugh. I remember saying, Michael, what happened to you, man? But, I have to give credit where credit is due. This show is actually not that bad, though it offers very little that is new to the 'Relic Hunter' type of shows that are on late at night. Michael Biehn, as always delivers what he does best, an incredible screen presence. Although, his acting abilities extend much farther than the limits of the script he's given (see The Terminator and Aliens for some true acting prowess of Biehn's, where he pulls off so well as the calm and quiet, vulnerable hero...a real everyday kinda guy...He will ALWAYS be Kyle Reese every time I see him in the movies), the show is still entertaining and as others have said on this site, a good time waster. Though, this show offers nothing new, it is a better than average production which does offer good acting and pretty good action sequences (in each episode I've seen, there have been several pretty cool gun fights). Though, if Hollywood hadn't given him the shaft, Michael Biehn would definitely have become another Bruce Willis type of 'human' superhero. I hope that he gets some more leading roles while he still looks rather young (though he's not as young as he was when working with James Cameron) because he is almost always a real treat to see on screen.
Anyways, not a bad show, but then again, not a great one either. This one falls smack dab in the above average category. 7.5/10 stars
