Zorro developed a huge fan base thanks to the updated and unique plot twists that were developed for the 1990 version of the 30 minute series starring Duncan Regehr. This updated version of the popular hero's deeds offered viewers a unique and more introspective version of the popular cult figure. The new 1990 version of Zorro found a much more complex and interesting take on the character. Everyone knows the story of the masked hero who rides by night to right the wrongs inflicted on the citizens of the pueblo of Los Angeles, usually protecting these citizens from the cruelty and greed of the corrupt Alcalde. However, what this version brings is a much deeper look at the main character, played brilliantly by Duncan Regehr. What makes this portrayal of Zorro so interesting is the many facets of the man that we see thanks to Regehr's masterful portrayal. Everyone is aware of Zorro's secret identity; Don Diego Del A Vega, and what makes this such an interesting portrayal is the fact that, while Don Diego comes across as a mincing fop and Zorro comes across as a masculine, intelligent and capable hero, the combined effect is completely believable. How many actors can pull off such an amazing feat? Aside from the main character of Zorro you have the supporting cast of Don Alejandro Del A Vega; Don Diego's father, played by both Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. and Henry Darrow, Victoria Escalante; Zorro's love interest, played by Patrice Camhi, the Alcade; the villain, played by Michael Tylo. While there are others to the cast these are the principle players who we find ourselves interested every week in the interactions of these main characters. A large part of what makes Zorro's character so interesting to watch is because of the many aspects he offers. He is, of course, athletic as we see from his sword play and acts of acrobatics. However, we also see the scientific side thanks to the various devices and plans he executes and of course we are treated to his detective skills. Zorro is a show that is definitely worth watching and can be enjoyed by all members of the family, young and old.
