Entertaining and suspense like action drama series of a swamp beast!
16 September 2018 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

I over the years started to read some old D.C. comics "Swamp Thing" issues and I must say the issues and stories were good and interesting as they focused on real life issues. And I remember this early 90's series on the "USA Network" as I watched as a kid I liked it being that the stories were fun with issues and entertaining with action, and now from time to time I catch early morning or late night reruns on digital TV.

Set in the muggy and hot humid swamps and lakes of Louisiana it involves a monster moss like hero named "Swamp Thing", though he may look like a scary monster this hero is out to avenge his being burnt by chemicals. And along the way "Swamp Thing" helps those who need it as it's clear he's the ruler of the "Swamps". Overall well done action hero series that had drama and suspense as it was a great take on a creature anti hero type.
