I've never seen any of the Rathbone-as-Holmes serials, so I can't offer an opinion about those, one way or the other.
The nitpicking editor in me feels obliged to mention that the Rathbone movies were features, not serials, but that's neither here or there.

It's funny, though. Just a few weeks ago, I saw an on-line article that referred to the Johnny Weismuller TARZAN movies as "serials," even though they were features as well.

For the record, folks, not all old black-and-white adventure movies were serials (he says, channeling his inner curmudgeon).
Haha, thanks for the info Greg. To be fair, those were a little before my time, but my parents loved them.
