The major motion picture of "The Green Hornet" arrived in theaters nationwide today. The comedic-action movie starring Seth Rogan has received only mixed reviews by film critics, although. Fans of the 1960's television series have been even more unkind to the movie. If you choose to not see the big screen version of "The Green Hornet," or if you want to experience a more serious version of the hero, Me-TV is making that wish come true. Tomorrow, Saturday, January 15th, Me-TV will air a 13 hour marathon of classic "Green Hornet" episodes.
Beginning at 10:00am, and running until 11:00pm, Me-TV will show all 26 episodes of "The Green Hornet" in a row. This is the entire series of the show that lasted just one television season (September 1966 - March 1967) on ABC. The episodes will be shown in almost the exact same order as the original airdates (with only one exception). The complete schedule can be seen at this link HERE
The original television series starred Van Williams as Britt Reid/The Green Hornet and Bruce Lee as Kato. Lee went on to become a legendary martial arts movie superstar soon after this series ended.
