Enjoyable series, Great actress!
30 December 1999 | by chuckles-17See all my reviews

The Equalizer was a fascinating series. I am glad to be able to watch in again in re-runs on a daily basis. I always wished Melissa had been a regular, or even a semi-regular on the show. I think her appearances may have prolonged the series for several more years. She did a great job in Memories of Manon.
