User Reviews

One of the best mini-series I've ever seen. When, O when will it be available on DVD?
31 August 2002 | by ettrickSee all my reviews

This miniseries regarding the cold war is probable the best you are ever likely to see. It is both serious and hilarious at the same time. The stars are all excellent, particularly Michael Gough. I do not know of any other serious-comedy that can hold your attention. make you laugh; keep you under suspense, all at the same time.
