This was a fun show! Too short lived!
8 October 1998 | by (Rochester, NY) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this on Armed Forces Radio and Television Services in Germany. I thought this show was great.

Mario would use some great disguises. Great action. Too bad I only saw it for one season (and in the military, most shows are seen one season after it's normal air season in the states). I think I only got to see maybe 5 episodes. If this is ever on in re-runs on TV-Land or TNT, you try to watch it, but with only 9 episodes, we may not ever see it again. Comedy/Drama.

Like 'Leverage' on TNT. I would not compare it to 'Robin Hood' but it's very similar in (UPDATED 02OCT09)
