There was a rambunctious girl, known only as "Black Sheep," who grew up in a school for criminals and yearned to find her place in it. However, even as she excels, Black Sheep eventually learns the truth about her life and the forces of V.I.LE.. Revolted at this evil, Black Sheep escapes and takes the name of Carmen Sandiego. Now, Carmen travels the world with her gang as an international thief opposing the plans of V.I.L.E.. However, there is another party in this conflict: the ACME Detective Agency is on the case to stop V.I.L.E. and they suspect the flamboyant Carmen Sandiego is the key as they investigate where in the world she is. —Kenneth Chisholm (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Refreshing new approach on a belowed 90s show
The new 'Carmen Sandiego' is absolutely binge-worthy. I just watched the entire first season in one go. I think it was a very good decision to make it rather a prequel instead of a remake. This way, fans of the old show (like me) get thrilles when old characters show up before they became what they were in the 90s show. I especially loved a certain cameo scene in an elevator, but no spoilers here. Talking of characters, all of them are well-written and interesting. I love how they have managed to include 'The Player". This brings me to my only point of criticism though: The gender equality is way off balance on this show, and it takes a lot for me to notice such a thing. Apart from The Player, all male characters are dull and clumsy, while all leaders on the show are women, and all women are agile and smart. This was just a bit too much even for me. I hope season two manages to balance this out a bit better - and I hope we won't have to wait too long for the show to continue because season 1 was great fun!
