purakek is right
15 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

Well, maybe my summary will take place of puurakek's, but he (or she?) is totally right! (so read this summary) In one episode (the one w/ Robert Vaughn) there was an identical twin brother who took place of the murdered one, and I only thought, please, don't let this be the one who is believed to be the murdered one and who took his brother's place after he murdered him. Guess what? But somehow I like that show, I don't think it's a total waste of money like "Baby Talk". I don't think, I could stand this show for more than one season, this was enough, but for one season the show was fine. I would have wanted a second or third season of Mr. Merlin, or a new concept.
