Don Diego de la Vega: Just one moment! Will You permit me one question? How is it possible for Martinez to have robbed the mission, when you already officially buried him?
Captain Monestario: It was Sergeant Garcia who made out that report! I will see that he is properly disciplined!
Captain Monestario: Now permit me one question! How is it possible that the most inept swordsman in all of California was able to defeat Martinez, one of the best?
Don Diego de la Vega: Well, perhaps Señor Martinez was right when he said, I am the luckiest swordsman alive!

Over 50 years later, still the most ambitious episode
7 September 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

There are basically two kinds of Zorro fans. Those that think the original series with Guy Williams (the most expensive TV series ever produced to that date, BTW, in colour!) was the best Zorro ever- and those who don't. Here is a clue. If you are in the first group, you are probably getting on in years. If you are in the second group, you probably have not even looked at this series because it is too old, and you think all old things are suspect. (A third clue, if you liked the travesty that Sir Anthony Hopkins was involved in, you are probably lacking in perception. And if you think the best-best-best Zorro was Tyronne Power, you are probably smarter than all of us). For fans of the series, this was the fave episode, and with justification. Don't forget that the first-ever "superhero with a secret identity" was in fact Zorro, written as a Penny Novel. And here the Disney writers take that to the next level by having Zorro "caught" out of costume have to take on a master swordsman in full view of the best villain from that series, Monestario. It is wonderful. It is action-packed. It is satisfying. In a word, it is Zorro.
