Mercury Men Syfy web series

Has anyone seen this? Just caught my attention for the first time...

Pittsburgh, 1975. Edward Borman, a lowly government office drone, finds himself trapped, when the deadly men of Mercury seize his office building as a staging ground for their nefarious plot. Aided by Jack Yaeger, a daring aerospace engineer from a mysterious organization known as "The League," Edward must stop the invaders and their doomsday device, the Gravity Engine.
Drawing from the same retro serials that inspired such films as Star Wars and Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Mercury Men reintroduces audiences to the great mystery, danger, and suspense the stories were originally known for. The series consists of 10 online episodes, each approximately 7 minutes in length.
The Mercury Men is available now on Syfy.com, Hulu, iTunes, and in HD via ON DEMAND.
Kind of a neat idea. I'd always wondered what a modern style remake of the serials would look like. At least something a bit truer to the originals than stuff like SW, Rocketeer Sky Captain.
