Great, positive show
21 February 2003 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

It was Mission Impossible for the 90s. I also was drawn to the show by the teamwork of the group and that it was such a moral show that was honest about corruption in high places - but never made a big show any of this. No tribute sites anywhere?
