Except for that Little Joe problem,
12 November 2017 | by Thomas001See all my reviews

Overall, it was very enjoyable show to watch. It was well thought out and produced, except for some silly details, such as little Joe trying (and failing) to use a breaker bar and sledge hammer (held by the short end) to punch a hole through plank floor loaded with collapsed brick wall, while the smoke flu was just few feet away.

Don Knight's performance was consistently great, but Little Joe's? Not so much. Whatever the action scene, Little Joe was always the Johny-come-lately, and however the scene ended, Little Joe always emerged victorious. I laughed when a courthouse brick wall collapsed on Little Joe and he just got out of the rubble, dusted himself off and continued telling others what to do. Truly annoying.
