Old superhero serials

Postby GladDog » Thu May 23, 2019 9:35 am

Its been a slow day so far at work (no surprise; a lot of people like to pad long weekends with vacation days), and I was watching some old Superman and Batman serials - what we would call series now. Their SFX were laughable, their conversations were so campy, but dang, they were fun to watch! Hopefully we can get some of that feel in SoH for some missions. Fun is, of course, why we play games in the first place.

I watched the whole Batman series 1st however I think I had more fun watching the old superman one with George Reeves.

If you ever get a chance could you hands on the green hornet with Van Williams and Bruce Lee that would be pretty cool. Never was able to see all of them. Let’s not forget Zorro and Flash Gordon Those were wonderful series.

I’m going to throw the wild wild West in there too. Just because of the gadgets that Artie made for Jim.

Can’t think of any others that were actually on TV. I think the shadow was the most famous but it was strictly radio. Oh wait there was also the Phantom. I remember a few black-and-white episodes of that at least I think I do. He had a dog too... :/
