This serial was scheduled to be shown on a weekly basis on public television during the summer of 1979. Unfortunately, most of the chapters were not shown, due to the coverage of the SALT II hearings. See more »
Fun, campy and better than most Universal serials of period.
This is a little known and under rated serial. It is a fun semi-mystery with all the proper cliche's included. Most anyone will find some fun,in the traditional chases and period genre. I enjoyed this very early bit of SF with invisibility belts and a robot of unique design. Remember this came first. Theres plenty of period auto and trains to keep the action going. Some of the acting (perhaps its the script) is limited, but as a Universal serial it is far superior to most Universal efforts at that time. I recommend this to anyone who can find a copy.
