I am old and feeble, and playing with rules is so not real world nor is a 60 second fight.
Second episode was a lot more engaging than the first, almost as if most of the budget/effort went on it.
Regarding the older series, seminal pieces of work. That era of film making just did character development and documentation to a much higher standard for some reason. Also,looked high and low for the tv series which accompanied the Commando book circa 1992 to no avail.
