| Good but not great serial has everything a serial should be but never quite puts it all together
Two marines take on the evil Lightning who travels around the world in a giant wing. The lightning uses his "electrical thunderbolt" to kill those who stand in the way of world domination.

Well acted despite being full of serial character clichés, this is a good, but not particularly great tale. I know many people think this is the best serial ever made but I'm not among them. There is something too mechanical about the tale. Yes its got a great look and good cliffhangers, but for me it feels as though it was put together by a list instead of coming together organically. Don't get me wrong I like the serial. It in no way a bad serial and its certainly worth seeing, but is seems to be more what the perfect serial SHOULD be instead of simply BEING that serial.

Give it a shot if you run across it.
