The series about the Twist there is lining in a light house in port Nirada, is one of the best TV-series made ever.

In the the TV-series we follow the twist families which is living in a light house, the twist family is Tony, the to (orgringal: thirteen) years old twins Linda and Pete and Nine year old Bronson.

I really Like this series.

The story and the figures is good. I like the idea of the little book there goes again in every episode.

All the actors do it very very very good.

The figure i like most is Bronson and Mathew Waters do it very very very good as Bronson.
