I like that Hornet serial. I don't know if I would've appreciated it years ago but I like the way the Hornet and Kato look and the Black Beauty too. The music and sound, the cool logo, the screen wipes give a breezy vibe to it all. I like Ms. Case's voice, you never hear women with inflection like that nowadays, kinda big city kinda Mae West, hard to describe.
I think the thing that impressed me most was just the way the Hornet climbs a fire escape like a boss.
