Taking a walk down memory lane this week, indulging one of my guilty pleasures: “[New World] Zorro” – originally aired on The Family Channel in 1990s. It was the total antithesis of most of the things I was watching at the time, such as “Highlander” and “Forever Knight.” I guess I was trying to balance the angst with the fluff! In a strange way, NWZ became my Zorro, much the way that Bruce/Batman in “Batman: The Animated Series” became my Batman. The films never quite did it for me…Only the old Disney Zorro with Guy Williams comes close.
And then there was the Victoria/Diego/Zorro ‘ship – yet another of my OTPs. Unfortunately, I think the series ended just as it was hitting its stride… and before these two dorks could figure things out.
Thank Heavens there are a few good NWZ fic authors out there who have filled in the gaps!
