Typical Republic slam-bang serial fare.
10 May 1999 | by (Blacksburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Typical Republic serial. Two points of interest: Viewers know who the mysterious bad guy is from the very beginning, and Harry Lauter, although given fairly prominent billing, appears only in last episode. Unusually romantic score by Stan Wilson.
