Blaine: No, this isn’t a rip-off of the Green Arrow. It’s a 1940 movie serial based on a 1926 novel by one of the era’s most popular authors. Oliver Queen first appeared in comics in 1941, which may or may not have been coincidence.

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “I haven’t actually seen any of this week’s major releases yet. I definitely want to carve out time to watch that season of Battlestar Galactica, and some of those old Super Hero Classics movie serials sound interesting, but they tend to be cheesy. I don’t see an undiscovered gems this week.”Alex says, “Having grown up on Rocky and Bullwinkle (and having some of the show recently and finding that it still holds up), I’m going for the Rocky and Bullwinkle collection.”
