DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME
Art Deresh | 03/24/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Forget this one, Bad acting, Bad screenplay. looks like a old 70's TV show
no budget, I wonder what old dungeion they dug this up from. Boring go
no where serius. cheap cheap cheap. All costumes look like they were holloween rentals at a bad mascerade party."
Yes, it's a 70s tv show
Robert E. Selig | Houston, TX USA | 07/10/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This TV series was run on late night ABC TV in the late seventies under the title "Legend of the Black Hand". Each episode is a separate story and each has a different cast. The series was capitalizing on the Godfather-craze of the times. Acting and production values were good (not great) for the time, and I kept wishing there had been a second series, which to my knowledge there was not. The plots become predictable and by today's standards are almost cliche.
Having said that, for some reason, I remember it fondly."
