Excellent, Worth The HALF Hour
26 August 1999 | by loveisSee all my reviews

This show is really great,I haven't seen very many mystery shows lately,so there's not much to compete with. Sure there are so predictable cases but there are many interesting ones. Worth the watch. It would be better if it were an hour show, but I can't complain.
