It started off strong, but by the end of the first hour I was bored... and switched it off. I've checked out "Princess of Mars" from the library and I'll see if the very interesting premise holds up better in Burrough's hands. I've never read this series, but another author I like played around with Burrough's vision of Barsoom recently, and I'm intrigued enough to start reading.

Cheesy, ludicrous plot but highly enjoyable blockbuster sci-fi fantasy adventure.
