Goofs

The second episode shows the screen caption 'Tblisi, Russia'. Tblisi is not in Russia, but in Georgia - at the time one of the fifteen soviet socialist republics (SSRs) that constituted the Soviet Union. A more accurate screen caption would therefore be 'Tblisi, Georgian SSR' or 'Tblisi, Soviet Union'. See more »

Fast, exciting...thriller a'la Sheldon's books....
22 February 2004 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best adaptation of Sidney Sheldon's books. It's fast, exciting, great locales, appealing characters and enjoyable from start to finish.

This is Smith's first foray in this genre. Her on-screen chemistry with "Mr.Cool" himself, Robert Wagner is one of the reasons why this miniseries works.

An all star cast miniseries.
