movie magic helps in fight against the crime
29 September 2006 | by (Nis,Serbia) – See all my reviews

Fantastic show with good actors and stories!I never understand why it's canceled after just two years and we never had a chance to see how would it end it!!!I still have a hope that same actors team will make a movie!!!Cameron Daddo was excellent like a movie magic gay Rollie Tyler who helps police in solving crimes.Christina Cox was also very good playing his partner Angela Ramirez who is expert in computers and person with Rollie's greatest trust.Seacond season was even better then first one with most intelligent stories and plots and the end of the show was mind blowing but we never had a chance to find out what was in writers.So,this is my recommendation for the show:just watch it-you gonna love it!!!!
