The Retro TV Action-Adventure-Thon

 The Retro TV Action-Adventure-Thon will be showcasing some strange super hero stuff at the Paley Center. Did you know there was a show for Shazam? They had a show for Shazam aka Captain Marvel.  Patrick Duffy is basically Aquaman in The Man from Atlantis. I guess Warner Bros has tried to make DC superhero shows even before Smallville and keeps it going today with Arrow (Green Arrow). I won't get into the Legends of the Super Heroes: The Challenge, but a lot of the actors are pretty good for their comic counterparts, but think of it sort of like a Star War Christmas. So check the link to the full schedule below and press release for more info
