A blast from the past!
27 September 2008 | by (Boulder, CO) – See all my reviews

What a pleasant surprise to find the show may perhaps still be airing new episodes!

I used to watch The Old Fox (I think) 20 years back - a foreign series shown in India. Given the other options, we used to watch The Old Fox avidly...

I thought Der Alte was good - if I get the chance, I'll pick up the DVDs and re-acquaint myself with Gerd Heymann!

FWIW - in response to a previous reviewer, I thought Buffy was a decent series, as was the original Star Trek. Don't care much for CSI, though...
