As the Soviets awaken a list of sleeper agents all over Britain, Daddy’s team must move swiftly to gain information about the plot.

The Game
I love that I can buy such fine British series' such as "The Game" on DVD. I only knew one other person who watched it on American TV and it is so great that now I can share it with friends or buy it as a gift. "The Game" is a cold-war thriller that has superb acting, writing and (as most BBC productions have) outstanding cinematography. The director (s)/D.O.P. use the horizontal planes of lit offices of the MI5 juxtaposed against the fluid, flapping of material or curved space to create a visual experience that is absolutely beautiful.
Classy, edge-of-your-seat and seamlessly crafted. What more could one want?

The Game
We love British intrigue films, and this one was well-acted and compelling. The plot was dense enough, but not overly so, and the costumes and sets were appropriate to the time frame.
