A little deception
16 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode is the following of DESERT CITY, the previous episode, which was far more interesting than this one, more unusual. In this story, Stu gets Jeff as a side kick, real partner. In the last episodes I saw, the two of them were not always together. It takes place now in South America and looks more like an adventure yarn than a detective crime scheme with beautiful señoritas and phony dictators. Some light touch, funny sequences, but certainly not worth if you compare with the previous tale. Unfortunately, I watched it with annoying sound problems and there were some dialogues I did not always get, and I can't read on lips. One thing for sure, that's not the best of the series. Far from that.
