Handsome guy
25 August 1999 | by blue-78See all my reviews

I loved this show, the tec stuff, the cast, the story lines. It should have had a lot longer run. Sam Jones is a handsome, masculine presants. he is tall (6'3") dark and good looking. I wouldn't be afraid to walk down any dark street with him. Check it out, you won't be dissappointed.
