Only vaguely remember
2 November 2013 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

this show when it appeared in the States in the late '60s. I was just a kid. I want to say that "Strange Report" was one of those summer fill-ins that networks appropriated in those days. Being a big fan of mysteries even then, I recall enjoying the program and being both confused and disappointed when it vanished as mysteriously as it arrived. Another British import, the classic "The Prisoner" with Patrick MacGoohan, appeared at about the same time in the US; it lasted a bit longer, to the best of my recollection, and was (and remains) one of my favorite shows ever.

I'm glad to see that "Strange Report" has been reissued. Maybe I'll pick it up sometime...
