A group calling themselves the Flaming Torches is planning an upheaval of the current US government by sabotaging key defensive positions and making pacts with sinister foreign governments. The G-Men are after all members of this group and organize the Junior G-Men so they can assist them in small ways. A street gang, led by Billy Barton, is also after the Torches since the group has abducted Billy's father who has perfected a revolutionary new type of explosive. The Junior G-Men and Billy's gang work together, despite their obvious different methods, along with the G-Men to bring the Torches to justice. Nice serial with the fifth columnist element makes this serial stand a bit higher than expected. If you're expecting the humorous escapades seen by the East Side Kids in the Monogram series, you might be miffed that there are only a few humorous moments here. The cliffhangers are really weak and predictable and much of the story seems to be repeating itself a lot. The story and pacing still manages to keep viewer interest though. Rating, 6.
