The further adventures of the hapless crew of HMS Troutbridge. As you would expect there are few surprises to be had, just plenty of fun and laughter. These episodes are from a time of gentle comedy and are enjoyable to all ages. Each episode is a standalone story and can be listened to in any order although a few themes do carry over.I strongly recommend this series to anyone.

You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

This is a good start to the popular "Plumb" series. Stephanie is down on her luck having lost her job and in urgent need of money, so she takes a job as a bounty hunter working for her cousin. She has no skills and is totally out of her depth. She is helped by Ranger, a mysterious hunk who is a skilled bounty hunter. Her first major bond is to apprehend Morelli a cop, and the man who removed her virginity and wrote about it on the wall of the boy's bathroom in high school! No pressure there.



This is a very enjoyable story with plenty of laughs. The story takes you through her meetings with some very scary characters and enables you to fall in love with her family, particularly her Grandma. Time passes very quickly as you become involved in Stephanie's inept attempt to capture Morelli. This is a good introduction to an enjoyable series which gets better throughout each story. My only complaint is that I prefer the reader of the later audio's.

Heralded by an instantly memorable signature tune, the adventures of special agent Dick Barton and his friends Jock and Snowey originally ran on the BBC Light Programme between 1946 and 1951. Set in an exciting world of criminal masterminds, espionage and adventure, the series was essential listening for an entire generation; Whilst diving for treasure in the Pacific Ocean, Dick discovers a secret Nazi organisation on the nearby Black Panther Island. Can he defeat the sinister Carl Von Reinitz?

Dated Radio Serial

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 23-12-12

This is a very nostalgic radio show, serialised over many short episodes. This story is not as good as others I have listened to. It is very sexist with Barton and his friends looking after the pretty, helpless women! However, it is still entertaining and worth a listen.
