About Serials:
Serial Films were some of the earliest forms of film during the silent era through to the 1950s, often episodic in form (usually with 12-15 parts) and
simplistic in plot, that were shown over a period of weeks or years. The multi-part films consisted of episodes that could be anywhere between fifteen
and twenty minutes in length. The segments were presented one chapter at a time in weekly installments over the course of time. Serials were usually
included during the shorts projected in a neighborhood movie theatre, offered before the feature film, B-western, or Saturday afternoon 'kiddie' matinee.
They were often scheduled along with lots of cartoons, newsreels, other two-reelers, and theatrical trailers/previews.

Serial Reviews:
The two Batman Serials, first in 1943 which was then followed up in 1949, were released to great fanfare by those attending the short films.
However as time has passed reviews for the Serials have been mixed. Nowadays you can search for the Batman Serials online for reviews just
like you would consumer products,
Home Advisor Reviews for professional contractors and even colleges or universities. Unlike Home Advisor
for example, mixed reviews for the Batman serials can be partially attributed to the advancement of digital film technology and stronger writing
practices backed by more money from the Studio. If one takes the Serials as they are and not compare them to films of today, they can still be
enjoyed by Batman fans as they were originally intended.
