The final episode of Shazam is one of the best! All the elements that make this show so good come into being. The action/disaster ending is perhaps one of the very best moments of the whole series and this footage is covered with really cool sounding energy-charged music playing over it. The music is a real taste of the 1970s.
One scene where Marvel prevents a moving van from leaving the scene might get a laugh from some. Marvel just seems to use a too complicated method of stopping a little van.
The child actor guest stars all do a fine job and the lad playing "Jim" is in fact Andrew Stevens. Steven would later get a role in the 1980s supersoap: Dallas.
And so Shazam ends after just 28 short episodes. The series was very hard to get for decades but a recent DVD release means that Shazam is being discovered or re-discovered all over again.
I loved the endless fight scenes in the Adam West Batman series, but Shazam proved you can do a superhero series without fights, blood and guts. As another reviewer once said, there is a "very positive" feeling about this series, and what more can you want from television?
