Agreeing with Mr. Rodrigues
8 April 2017 | by hackraytexSee all my reviews

This series is enjoyable to watch and Ron Ely gave 100% to make it work. As Mr. Rodrigues noted, it was shot in Mexico and there was not much effort to pretend that it should have been in Africa. Another thing to note is how often they used the same actors in guest roles over and over almost like it was a stock company. Jock Mahoney was a guest star four times in the first season playing a different character each time.

Maybe the show was directed at kids and such shortcuts would not have been noticed. Maybe these shortcomings were due to budget restrictions and they had to make do with what they had. The program could have gone on more than two years if the money had been there for location shooting in Africa and better writing and more money to hire more guest stars. I do enjoy watching actors who were starting their careers and those who were getting to work here when maybe opportunities elsewhere may have been limited. No disrespect intended.
