Silly as it is meant to be
22 August 2020 | by cabrera-montesino80See all my reviews

What isn't fun about this episode? So much fun as though given a recess between episodes. I respect any show that takes the opportunity to be whimsical. Lighten up people. Jean Luc cannot help but smile as Robin Hood
