A must see
20 February 1999 | by (Brocktroit, Massatucky) – See all my reviews

A very in-depth and well acted story that plays like a book that you absolutely cannot put down. Originally released in more than one part, which effectively and literally kept you hanging. If you want to be completely and utterly enthralled and swept up in a story that promises to deliver, and does, then this is a MUST SEE!
