Never before released China Beach Season 1 (3-DVD) Set. Back to the beach... From the moment CHINA BEACH debuted in 1988, with its iconic opening credits set to the Supremes’ “Reflections” as its theme song, it was hailed as groundbreaking television. In an era of testosterone-driven war movies, CHINA BEACH as seen on TV delivered a unique perspective: the Vietnam War through the eyes of women!
