Did You Know?


ABC executive Brandon Stoddard, with the help of his wife, conceived the idea of a miniseries about America 10 years after a Soviet takeover. The day after he came up with the idea, Stoddard had a meeting with producer David L. Wolper. Wolper told Stoddard that he wanted to make a miniseries for ABC, coincidentally, about America 10 years after a Soviet takeover. Wolper's version was never made. See more »


Peter Bradford: [in voiceover, as he looks at the Lincoln Memorial] You can't look at those eyes and not think of what being an American has meant. Now there's an end to it. Soon, there will be no America. We'll be history, quickly lost and distorted, like Mr. Lincoln himself... I suppose there will have to be new revolutions, with new generations who will have to discover the values which our forefathers handed down to us. If those truths stop being real, maybe it's better to let them go, to let some new ...

A few answers
11 January 2002 | by (Little Rock) – See all my reviews

I was very much into talk radio at the time this minis series was on.

It seemed that it offended everyone. The conservatives didn't think that ANY US president would ever just voluntarily turn over the country to the Soviets and liberals got pissed because the movie depicted the Soviets as using the United Nations as being complicit in the Soviet take over.

I thought that it was actually a very good fantasy story. The ONLY way the "Stars and Stripes" that we now see displayed EVERYWHERE could be displayed was in a flag that combined the US flag with the Soviet Hammer and Sickle Flag and the UN Crest. You should know that it was done during the Reagan Administration when Republicans were calling the Soviet Union the single biggest provider of EVIL in the history of Earth and Democrats were trying to make peace with them. Conservatives on the FAR right have long advocated our withdrawing from the UN and liberals have long been in favor of giving more and more precedence to the UN in world affairs.

I enjoyed Kris and Robert in it but my main recollection was how sexy Cindy Pickett was in it. SHE was Robert's wife and Kris's ex wife. THAT made for some interesting tension.

See if for yourself. With all the flaws you'll read about here it's still worth the time.
