First up, it’s “The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe” with Sidney Greenstreet as the rotund, yet brilliant private investigator. Hard to believe it, but Wolfe actually leaves his brownstone mansion to do a little detecting. Then we return to England as the bumbling government officials of “The Men from the Ministry” investigate a phantom train in a country village.

"ALIAS, THE SCARF"
AIRED: FEBRUARY 24, 1967
The Hornet takes on a killer from the past come back to life. In another unusual story that didn't fall under the Hornet's usual MO of operations, we're given the series first true rogue. Does The Scarf live up to the potential the story sets up? How does he compare with other figures who appear from the past in series such as The Flash and Batman: The Animated Series? What is it with Casey that her use in the series is so uneven? And what gets Jim and John all excited about Kato in this episode?
The Green Hornet: A History of Radio, Motion Pictures, Comics and Television by Martin Grams and Terry Salomonson is a reference work we're consulting as we move through the series. Pick up your copy by clicking on the link and getting it today.

First up it’s “X Minus One” with one of their most intellectual episodes: “Appointment in Tomorrow,” which asks what role public perception plays in science. Then Bob Bailey stars private problem-solver George Valentine in “Let George Do It.” It’s up to George to find some missing currency paper before it’s used by a counterfeiting ring. The economy of a nation is at stake.
