Zorro as we all know with lots of comedy and good writing.
This is actually a very entertaining show and you've to see it with an open mind.
This isn't a spoof, it's Zorro we all know with lots of comedy and good writing. It's original and fun to watch. The adventure, swordplay, romance, it's all there and with great chemistry between all the players. The main villain, Commandante Paco Pico (Gregory Sierra) steals many scenes and it's fun to watch the different points of view of Zorro and Zorro Jr. regarding methods of fighting justice.
Yes, it's different from the other versions but that's the point on doing remakes... adding some stuff we haven't seen before. Wish there were more episodes.
