Yesterday I covered a bogus TV-movie culled together from episodes of a TV series. Today, for a change of pace, I’m covering a bogus TV-movie culled together from episodes of an old serial. In comparing the experiences, I have to admit I prefer covering the ones culled from TV series; at least I haven’t already covered the originals as part of this series. For the record, this probably does as decent a job as any of converting a serial to a feature, but, like most of the others, it only manages to convert it to a fairly dull feature. As usual, touches of science fiction give it its fantastic content, including the ubiquitous death ray. Nothing new here.
