A hard-hitting cast heads this gritty, militaristic adventure about a scientific expedition that unearths three genetically engineered Russian super soldiers frozen in ice since the height of the Cold War. Now, the team must stop the killing machines at all costs or risk the total destruction of the Western world.
While most popular shows of the era focused on the ideal American family (moms wearing pearls and baking cookies) or society's mainstream heroes (mostly White, macho men), ABC's The Mod Squad (1968-73) broke the mold and – to coin the vernacular of the day – was hip.

DVD Review CHINA BEACH: THE COMPLETE SERIES
China Beach is an outstanding television show with great production, writing and acting. It is dramas like this that make the DVD format worthwhile. There is a delicious opportunity for those who didn't see it, hardly remember it or loved it to experience the show all over again. Highly recommended.
DVD Review A HAUNTING: THE 2012 SEASON
I haven't exactly heard great things about this show, and it seems awfully derivative of other supernatural reality series, but if it's even the least bit spooky, then I'm definitely on board.
The deliriously entertaining film deftly blends vaudeville-style humor, vivid magic sequences and ruthless political gamesmanship while featuring the three of the most powerful stars in Chinese cinema - Tony Leung Chiu-wai (Hero, Red Cliff), Lau Ching-wan (Mad Detective) and Zhou Xun (Cloud Atlas).
