While I didn't watch all the episodes, I did see about half. They were okay, but nothing really special. No real action at all, which disappointed me. Just spy drama.

We enjoyed this series very much and lament there is only this DVD. We wished there were more movies! This is not a sophisticated production, and there is also the early 80's feel, so keep this in mind when watching. If you can stand that, you'll have 10 nice episodes to watch.

Kind of feels like someone wanted to redo Le Carre's Smiley. Hard to see what other point there is.
