Storyline

Brick Bradford, soldier-of-fortune and time-machine traveler, is hired to protect the Interceptor Ray, an anti-guided missile weapon. His task takes him to the Moon, where he is captured by subjects of Queen Khana, but is spared because Queen Khana kinda likes him. Back on earth, Brick, Sandy and June get into The Time To (Brick's spinning time-machine) and spin back to the 18th Century where they have to fight off pirates and island natives. Brick finally traps the villain after the Interceptor Ray and world peace is assured. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Not as bad as I'd heard
21 August 1999 | by (St. Clair, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I'd heard a lot of things about Brick Bradford...mainly that it was the worst movie serial ever made. Now, it wasn't the greatest, but it had some good moments...but it also had plenty of clunkers.

Brick and company travel to the far side of the moon which suddenly has an atmosphere and a lost civilization that other people from Earth have PREVIOUSLY visited. They also travel back through time to the days of the pirates to find a lost scrap of paper with an equation relating to nuclear physics on it.

The first half of the serial has moments like these, while the second half becomes a routine good guys/bad guys shoot-out and capture-everyone-a-thon. Still, Kane Richmond is always fun and Rick Vallin has a lot of good, funny lines. The scripting is a bit above par in terms of tongue-in-cheek humor for Vallin's character.

If you are a serial fan, and can ignore outlandish plot contrivances (hey, most serial fans can =) ), I think Brick Bradford is definitely worth a viewing.
