20 April 2015 | by ianmcpherson-09805See all my reviews

Currently playing on free to air on Channel 9 I've been re-watching this series and loving it! I'd originally watched this when it was first released but missed many episodes, now as an adult it's better than I remember it was 40 years ago... As others have pointed out it gives an Aussie point of view of the Pacific war, especially on the intelligence/counter intelligence side. Given when it was made I can forgive the lack of special effects etc. I'm giving a 9 out 10 for it's unique 'flavour' A reviewer asked if this is available on DVD - yes it is! Just type: Spyforce: The Complete Series and you'll find any number of sites to buy this from - Enjoy!
