Good but unoriginal
30 August 2018 | by nicholls_lesSee all my reviews

I love this program and don't want to overly criticize it. Any program with crime set in the gorgeous Caribbean is a hit with me, but the story line for this one has been done before and the locked door scenario is now over used. The now need some new writers for this excellent idea of a show.
