Greatly appreciated
22 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

One of the better Flemish drama series, about the Search and Rescue unit of the Belgian army, based in coastal town of Koksijde, featuring all the great actresses and actors of the late nineties in Flanders. Although the action is mixed with some soap elements, the excellent acting of the likes of Warre Borgmans, Gène Bervoets and Ann Ceurvels, elevates this series, especially the first season, above average level. The series grew out to be one of the most eagerly viewed series of the Belgian public broadcast company in the last years.
