Classic show that never got the audience it deserved because of bad timing
6 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, first off, this review and spot on IMDb is for the series not the movie. I agree that the movie is horrible. However the series was a classic, one that was sadly ahead of its time(ahead of the popular terrorism fad brought on by modern events). It cataloged the covert actions of a small company of rogue ex-military and ex-intelligence types. It not only featured some excellent acting(for a TV action series), but the special effects were not bad either. The stars of the show were the Major(who went on to make minor impact in small roles) who lead the group and Melinda Clark(the bombshell who went on to star in the O.C.) who was the gifted hacker/linguist ex-intel operative. The plot wasn't difficult to follow-the operatives would be handed a secretive mission sponsored by unknown financiers(the good guys) and carry out the mission, usually eliminating the opposition(the bad guys).

Anyways unfortunately for those lucky enough to discover it, the show met with a drastic nose-dive on the second or third season. This is when producers decided to "spice-up" things a bit by making a couple of cuts in the cast and replacing them with none other than basketball's badboy(prima donna) Denis Rodman. Let's face it-the guy can't act to save his life. Soon after the show lost what little it had going for it in the gritty realism department and was destined for cancellation.
