I absolutely LOVE time travel, and anything to do with that be it books, movies, or TV shows. And guess what this show came along and wow I loved it...
I watched most of the episodes when they were on TV here and I really got to like the show. From the never ending come ons Frank did to Olga to try and woo her to the various missions he did. Some of the show did at times get a bit repititious but I glossed over that and just enjoyed the show for what
it was, which was entertaining....
It's a pity our local TV station gave it a bad run but I live in hope this will come to DVD and then I'll probably buy the whole set....
