“Legends of the Superheroes”: An Odyssey Better Left Unfinished

Originally published August 29th, 2015, I felt like this should be revisited and updated... The best thing that happened on TV when I was nine. It was January, 1979, and there were two hour long shows. One aired per week on NBC. I was able to see the first and was SUPER excited to watch [...]
