Really great show in a terrible time slot!
31 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As pointed out in previous comments, Blue Light was part Counterfeit Traitor, part Operation Crossbow, part James Bond, and all Robert Goulet. Goulet was perfect, an earlier version of Pierce Brosnan in many ways, as "traitor" David March, double agent extraordinaire, trying his best to help win the war in WWII Europe almost singlehandedly. He was in his prime, handsome and virile, and convincingly charming and deadly, and his romantic interest and partner in spying was the exciting French actress Christine Carrere. Don't get me wrong, I came back week after week to see how David March could outwit the Nazis and advance the war effort, but I also came back to see Christine who, along with Diana Rigg as The Avengers' Emma Peel, was one of the sexiest European ladies on American 60's TV. Though historically inaccurate, the episode, which I believe was a larger part of the movie culled from the series, involved the destruction of the V-1 and V-2 rocket base at Peenemunde. It was for all intents and purposes an American James Bond taking on a Nazi version of a Spectre plot and great fun and adventure. Though I don't recall what was opposite it in its time slot, I was hooked, I know some veterans of WWII laughed at some of the plots, James Bond could be fantastic, but not David March in WWII, I still think, even today, that it was very underrated and Goulet should have been used more in roles like this. Today his voice is silent, most of his music is out of print, and this series is all but forgotten. Sadly, now that Robert Goulet has passed away, perhaps they'll resurrect his albums and put this short-lived series out on DVD. What a voice! How the heavens must sound today!
