You are right, Trinity and Beyond is no sub workout. Billy Shatner is good and the DVD cover art kicks ass.
I just read though this thread and didn't see "Special Bulletin" mentioned. Kind of a Orson style
WOTW with nukes instead of aliens. Worth checking out. It played like a newscast but they
pussed out and ran disclaimers.

I can neither confirm or deny whether I remember the crisis (never pigeonhole your age
) but if you are interested in that time period, "The Fog of War (2003) Eleven lessons from the life of Robert S McNamara"
is a good watch. I believe you can watch it on ewetoob.
The Cold War is fascinating. Curtis LeMay would have killed us all if he could. Anybody notice how many of these movies were made ~ early eighties?
Ill let you guys in on a little secret, my username Tack is short for Hardtack which is short for Operation Hardtack which was code for some ba boom testing in the late fifties.
Don't tell anybody because people think you named yourself after a cracker. I shortened it to tack in the late 90s.
Plus, you'll tell your friends, your friends are callin' me on the horn all the time, I gotta show up at shopping centers for openings and sign autographs and **** like that and it makes my life a *hell*. Okay? A living hell.
Hey two threads in one
