The Secret Empire

Show Summary

Marshal Jim Donner, chasing a gang of masked robbers, stumbles upon an underground city of alien invaders, led by the evil Emperor Thorval, who keeps his people in subjugation via a mind-control machine. This obvious homage to Gene Autry's classic movie serial The Phantom Empire was one of the three segments of TV's "Cliffhangers" series, so someone is in deadly peril at the end of each episode. All of the scenes set in the surface world near Cheyenne, Wyoming, are in black and white, whereas those in the underground city of Chimera are in color.

  • I did like it, of course I was a child. I wonder if I'd like it now.

    I did like it, of course I was a child. I wonder if I'd like it now. I recall the black and whitely manner of the overworld, and it was interesting. Now I'd like to see how it holds up. There were other shows in the "Cliffhanger" family also. I recall the "vampire" series never delivered enough episodes to keep the series afloat, and that the political assasination thriller (name escapes me) was the one I liked the most. Oh well I do wish they were easily accessible, like maybe through Netflix. I'll have to look into that, but I have doubts that netflix has it. Cheers.moreless
