Green Hornet Alert!
The SyFy network is playing Green Hornet on TV all day today. It looks like all 26 episodes of the vintage TV series are showing up.
I'm very much in luck as I'm off work today and despite some grading I need to get done, I'm taking the day off and relishing one of the grand superhero shows of the 60's. I hope you all can clear off some time to join me.
Here's a link to SyFy's schedule for the day. And here's a link to the Green Hornet episodes.
And for good measure, here's the greatest opening in the history of television!
UPDATE: I took the day and idly watched Green Hornet episodes galore. I've got a few more to catch on DVR, but I watched the vast majority. It's been decades, if ever since I've seen some of these. They are simply great, the early ones in particular. The pacing is outstanding! And the mood on the early ones is very noir. Later episodes get a bit offbeat, but all in all quite fun.
