4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely Interesting....., 14 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Strange Report Complete [DVD] (DVD)
I'M a big fan of retro shows ITC in particular I suppose it's reliving childhood tv really.I didn't remember Strange Report
but I did see one or two on one of the itv sat channels a while back and that got me interested.In a nutshell Adam Strange is a retired Chief Inspector now a criminologist using the latest forensic techniques to aid the police in solving cases.
He has two assistants Eve and Ham.The show follows similar pattern to other ITC shows two male one female leads and their special talent though this time it's not a ghost or super powers it's science based.It's a good show similar in vein to Department S though obviously aimed at the US market with the slightly annoying freeze frame titles popular at that time.It was produced by Norman Felton of MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. fame.Sadly only 16 shows were made the reason being at this point the show was to move to the US and the cast weren't comfortable with this.The stories vary some are well thought out Skeleton
for example others such as Swindle not so.In general it's an entertaining series and will capture your intrest fairly quickly
On the down side for extras fans the disc packed with extras doesn't materialise it's highlight is a 30 min chat with Anneke Wills,Eve in the show the American edit of the afforementioned Skeleton episode is just a 2 min scene shown out of sequence,not up to Networks usual high standards.That's really the only disappointment I had with the set other than that it's great entertainment at a reasonable price and a welcome addition to all us ITC collectors enjoy.
