5.0 out of 5 stars Sandra's last case, 27 Jun 2014

This current series of JC is without doubt the absolute worst of the bunch. I hate even writing that as I have adored the series from the very start, but every element that made up the magic of the show has evaporated. The windmill, the duffle coat, Adam Klaus, and of course the single biggest missing link…. Maddie Magellan. I get that life moves on for everyone, that it would be unrealistic to think that fifteen years later Jonathan would still be working for a magician and living in the windmill. The show could have survived losing those two elements if the heart of the character had been retained. However he has turned into a middle aged frump, married to a woman with whom he has… Read more
