Great Memory of this show
7 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Throwing my two cents in, and giving away my age. I was a young teen when this show came out, and my brother and I loved it. A great mix of humor and serious drama. Writing was very good and the cast was great. My first recollection of Jack Warden, and I was forever after a fan. Definitely didn't stay on long enough. The premise, the writing, and the cast deserved a good 6-8 year run. It would be great if some network would pick this up and make a new version of the show.

As I recall, to maintain their cover, they were typically sailing under another flag, but for the life of me I can't remember what country. Switzerland maybe?

I can still remember the line when an enemy plane flies over, "Prepare to wave and smile!", followed by "Commence waving and smiling!".
