left an impression.
25 April 2014 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

Martial Eagle reflects the complexity of modern T V 's stronger shows. The by gone T V era had 2 d characters and flat predictable story lines. Martial Eagle is one complex show, which is layered in character development and sub plots. The assassinations, raid on a Contra base, Paige's new religious faith, double lives, Philip's two wives have major complication him. The good father family man, who kills, lies, and cheats is in emotional turmoil. Emerged in American culture, which conflicts with his KGB values, Philip faces another bed rock of American culture Christianity. Philip believes in religion as a con is faced with a real non fraud man of God. Philip is full of anger while the minister is at peace and mentions forgiveness. Ones sees a shock to Philip's beliefs/personalities. I wonder how cold hearted Elizabeth will react if Philip changes? A powerful message about humanity in people, which left an impression on me. Nine out of ten.
