The Hornet's Sting: Episode 9 - "The Preying Mantis"


"THE PREYING MANTIS"

AIRED: NOVEMBER 18, 1966

It's another challenge for The Green Hornet, but for John and Jim, there's not much of a challenge in reviewing this episode. Both are excited by this story that gives Bruce Lee a chance to stretch a little as the Hornet and Kato investigate a protection racket by a tong in Chinatown. The thing is, there's more to the tong than simply an extortion racket. There's a great deal to like about this fan favorite as the two discuss. Plus, there's some trivia on this episode from The Green Hornet: A History of Radio, Motion Pictures, Comics and Television by Martin Grams and Terry Salomonson, including Green Hornet creator George Trendle's dislike for this episode.
