'Brotherhood of the Rose' (1989)

The plot: Don't confuse this miniseries with "The Name of the Rose," the best-selling monk thriller by Umberto Eco. This is pure late-80s network TV pulp -- Peter Strauss and David Morse play orphans recruited by the CIA to serve as assassins. Of course, eventually the CIA turns against them. Heads up, '80s-philes, "The Greatest American Hero's" Connie Sellecca gives us a dramatic turn. / How many watched? Not available, though the post- Super Bowl half of the series delivered a big 20.9 rating with a 36 share. / Touchdown or fumble: Ratings-wise, it's a touchdown. But as '80s miniseries go, this isn't "V."
