We're back with our first review in over a year and we start off with one of the best episodes in the series. John and Richard discuss the stunt flying that reminded John of Jackson Bostwick's work in the first season, how this episode stands out for how it handles the theme of tolerance compared to other shows of the 70s, and the unprecedented three appearances of Captain Marvel in this episode.
It's all here and we want to hear from you on what you think of the episode. Write us as ShazamIsisPodcast@gmail.com.
Moral: “Prejudice and bigotry are two words that mean not liking somebody, calling them names because they different somebody. It's pretty silly. In some ways, all of us are different, in others, we're all the same. The important thing about a person is not the color of his hair or his skin, or his religion, whether he's tall of short, skinny or fat. What is important is something called character. Ask yourself is he honest? Does he care about others? Is he good? If the answers yes, call him friend."
