Storyline

US adventurer Frank Buck lives in colonial Singapore. He spreads his jungle time between his compound home, the legendary Raffles hotel, where he parties with HH, the sultan of Johore, and wherever adventures take them. Many adventures ensue, often less dangerous because of the animals then on account of criminals, Nazi agent von Turgo and sleezy sycophantic Bundhi. Written by KGF Vissers

Great Show
30 May 2019 | by Rob008See all my reviews

I first watched this show when I was stationed in Korea in 1982. I loved it and that it was in the same spirit as the Indiana Jones movie. Bruce Boxlietner does a great job bringing Frank Buck to life. I would love to see it released on DVD.
