Truth lasts only one season
10 March 1999 | by (texas) – See all my reviews

This tv show was so far ahead of it's time, not even the Open Records Law could protect it.

There is one episode that tells the depth of how much the writers knew and what they should not be telling.

Raynor makes his first trip to Viet Nam, at the request of RFK, to report back the fitness of the goverment there to receive aid from the USA to the president.

What he learns there summarizes the whole Viet Nam war. And explains the astonishment of 99% of the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen who served in that theater.

But, I will not name the episode, because the series can only be really savored if you see them all.

A 10, really, a 10.
