The Green Hornet (1966 – 1967) Eps 7,8&9 Reviewed

Ep 7

Beautiful Dreamer, Part 1

The Green Hornet and Kato fail to protect a scientist. Then Britt plays his huge reel to reel answering machine for Scanlon. I dislike Scanlon. Kato stands in the background being talked over.

A health club being run by Mr Eden is the source of crime. Mr Eden looks like LSD from the original ‘The Producers’. People in ‘treatment’ at Mr Eden’s spa wear big pink headphones to listen to music. But in reality there are being brainwashed by huge computers.

A necklace is ‘heistedby an irritating brainwashed socialite. Casey is brainwashed to shoot Britt. Kato stops her. Casey cries. Britt is secure in his rightness. This was dull.

Best Line:
“I don’t know what’s happening to the good people of this city.”

Ep 8

Beautiful Dreamer, Part 2

The Green Hornet confronts Mr Eden, who is added to the long long list of people who don’t recognise Britt Reid. Mr Eden asks the Hornet to meet him in an alley. Mr Eden is planning to blow up the Hornet “and his chauffeur.”

His not so cunning plan fails. The gas gun is used, The Green Hornet and Kato have a smirking conversation about Beethoven and Kato punches Eden out. There is a car chase. This is okay.

Best Line:
The Green Hornet, the devil incarnate.”

Ep 9

The Ray is for Killing

There is a robbery during a charity auction at Britt’s house. Where is Kato during all this? The thieves blow up a police car with a laser. The thieves want “one million dollars” and they’ll return Britt’s property, how very ‘Austin Powers’.

Kato kicks a guy into a pond. The Hornet Sting somehow makes a gun fly out of a guy’s hand. To stop the laser from harming his ride, Britt gets some of the stuff used as heat shield on ‘Space Capsules’. How he does that isn’t explained. Britt then orders Kato to coat their ride in the liquid heat resistant stuff. I wanted Kato to clock Brit over the head with the jar of goo but no go.

Casey is a hostage again, the Black Beauty is subjected to laser attack and the day is saved. This was uh.
