A rarely shown TV movie and series pilot that I have not seen in decades. All I remember is the film revolves around the takeover of the U.S. by a totalitarian authority and the efforts of an underground movement trying to ferment resistance. The film opens with a violent attack on a military base by the underground, leading to one of the most startling results I have seen on television. It was meant to shock the audience, and it did.
