Re: Diving Deep into the Green Hornet for the First Time

#2 - GIVE 'EM ENOUGH ROPE (Rating: 8/10) I thought this was an improvement over the previous episode. It had a great cold open, and I liked the character of Claudia. The story still could have used more running time, but it used the time it was given better than Silent Gun did. The plot was interest...

Re: Diving Deep into the Green Hornet for the First Time

I love old radio shows so I’ve listened to them before, and I think they are great! So sorry about the delay in reviews, a lot of things have been going on in my personal life that have gotten in the way. Next one should be up tonight!

This really makes me want to keep up with them like I used to.

Re: New Movie house has the GH rights!

I would love if they went back to the characters roots and set it in the 1930s, in the time of the radio show (which I’ve been a fan of for a while). But, like Ben, I don’t really care if it’s a period piece or set in modern times, I just finally want a good GH movie!

Re: Casting Suggestions for '66 villians

I will admit Joan Crawford was a little on the haggard side in the episode of The Lucy Show (some say she was intoxicated). But I still think she would have made a good villain. I feel like her larger than life persona was comedic in itself, and that alone would fit her in with the other campy villa...

Re: Diving Deep into the Green Hornet for the First Time

#1 - THE SILENT GUN (Rating: 6/10) I just finished the first episode. Extremely true to it's title, it's essentially about a gun that makes no noise, and the hornet's quest to get it out of the wrong hands. I think the episode was fine, a good start, but I'm hoping it improves from here. The most j...

Re: Casting Suggestions for '66 villians

Barbara Stanwyck might have been too serious. The best villain's in my opinion knew how to ham it up a little; Victor Buono for example. Milton Berle took it too seriously and fell flat if you ask me. Good point, I didn’t really think about that. Perhaps she would have worked in an earlier season o...

Re: Batman (1989) S.H.Figuarts Batman BY BANDAI SPIRITS

I missed out on the Mezco Trek figures, so if they get the license for the '66 show, I'll make sure not to make the same mistake.

Diving Deep into the Green Hornet for the First Time

I have decided that to help kill time while in quarantine, I will watch every episode of the Green Hornet television series! I have only seen a couple, two or three I think. I'm really excited to get into it, since I've seen board members praise it time and time again. After I watch each episode I w...

Re: Casting Suggestions for '66 villians

I think Barbara Stanwyck would have made a great villainess! Perhaps as a recast Black Widow as others have mentioned in previous threads, or as an original character. Her fierce energy and superb acting chops would have made for a great villain, and she certainly wasn't a stranger to television app...

Sorry for the lack of updates, I'm having some trouble with the website, so it will probably be a while before that is up and running unfortunately. Here's a little something I created for the web page:
