Reilly Ace Of Spies

This 1983 miniseries is a four DVD set on Netflix. One of the better miniseries I have ever seen.

I remember that series when it ran on PBS. I enjoyed it so much that I was somewhere, can't remember where, and I took a look at my watch and bolted home to watch it since that was the way early days of VCR's and I didn't have one.

I watched it at Camp Courtney, Okinawa. There was only one English speaking television station.

This is one of the few flicks that hods up equally well in 1984 and in 2015.

Check out Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (miniseries) if you haven't. That one holds up well too.

That was a good series. Sam Neil
