One of Universal's best serials
17 December 2001 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Along with "Flash Gordon" and "Buck Rogers", this chapterplay rates high with fans of Universal's serials. Everyone in the cast seems to enjoy their roles, in particular Frankie Thomas as Tim Tyler. Moves at a good clip with some great cliffhanger endings. Some excellent music cues ( from various Universal features ) are an added bonus.
