Counterstrike left too soon!
Is there anyone out there who knows if Counterstrike is up for sale? I would love to own it!
It is too bad that such a good show was canceled in its prime. Counterstrike had a good cast, and good story lines every week. The show came on at a time when I was not able to watch it, so I had to record it. I regret that I did not save any of the recorded episodes.
Christopher Plummer was perfect as Alexander Addington. The relationship of Peter and Gabrielle was predictable, yet very well done. But I liked the addition of James Purcell as Stone. Here was an ex-CIA operative being brought in from the cold into an elite organization like this. Almost like a fish out of water, but he quickly learned the ropes.
Hopefully, Counterstrike will return to television in the form of re-runs.
It is not too big a stretch to believe there might just be an organization out there, like the Counterstrike team, actually fighting crime behind the scene, going after criminals who think they are "above the law."
