This was initially broadcasted as a series for the youth however I think many adults must have enjoyed this one too back in the day. Of course to today's standards it is pretty tame but the show still has plenty of stuff to offer to be entertaining. It is really interesting to see the stuff they had which nowadays to be forgotten. The cars, the electronics, the fashion. The titular character looks like a Sherlock Holmes detective who does have a passion for music, electronics and mechanics. He must have been the perfect hero in the day: never panicking always remaining calm and knowing what to do. He always seems to have a solution to get out of dangerous situations. He rarely makes mistakes and when it does go wrong it's usually due to his youthful pupil Dirk who is however learning fast. The bad guys might not always be the smartest their boss is not one to mess with. And yes this isn't all about guys, actually there is a few ladies who do have crucial roles in the whole plot. All in all I found it thrilling and mysterious. And it's only in the last episode that the viewer gets to know what it is all about. I don't think this one was ever broadcasted outside Belgium.
