Reviews

Intrepid pilot Mike Mercury takes to the skies in the complete series of Gerry Anderson's Supercar. With Professor Popkiss manning the console, and the eccentric Dr. Beaker providing his customary blend of erudition and genius, the stage is set for an adventure series that blends action, humour and charm in equal measure. Gerry Anderson's rarely seen Supermarionation classic is presented here in superbly remastered DVD quality that even Dr. Beaker would find 'most satisfactory!'

5.0 out of 5 stars Full Boost Vertical! 30 April 2005
Format:DVD
Contains all 39 black-and-white episodes from both series of Gerry Anderson's early Supermarionation series. Also included is an extras disc with the nearly 2-hour long documentary "Full Boost Vertical - The Supercar Story" covering the beginning of AP Films and the making of the show. The extras disc also includes some special effects footage from the title sequences, French and Spanish versions of the main titles, and PDFs of three early 60's Supercar annuals. As Dr. Beaker would say: Satisfactory, most satisfactory!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back when telly was good.... 30 April 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I vividly recall the 1980's, when there was no multi-channel competion and the main broadcasters felt the need to actually show decent programmes - Often, during the school summer holidays, Gerry Anderson's FIREBALL XL5 was one of the delights screened for bored kids. Already a fan of THUNDERBIRDS and STINGRAY, I was hooked on the exploits of STEVE ZODIAC and tried to learn more: That's how SUPERCAR came to my attention but for years it remained a mystery to me beyond a few fuzzy photos in genre magazines.
Then in 1990 we got a few VHS tapes that hinted at the quality of the series, but now with this digital release we find something that is truly "The marvel of it's age". All 39 episodes and great extras make for a very attractive package, and is very good value at the price. The package splits up series 1 and 2 into two indivdual cases along with an extras disc, so will look good presented on a shelf - The artwork on these cases is simple yet effective, showing SUPERCAR "up into space", "under the sea" and "flying in the air" seperately on different covers.
The episodes themselves have been mastered to an excellent standard, and the detail seen as a result is a joy to behold. The stories remain as interesting and sophisticated as they have always been, and if people dismiss this series on the basis of the 'crude' puppets or black and white photography (two notions I don't actually share!) then they are missing out on some suprisingly smart and well written adventures. Some instalments even try to be educational, throwing many scientific & historical titbits that kids may find fascinating.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Gerry Anderson show ever! 19 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I rented out this box set a few months ago with Amazon's new rental system and it is a piece of sheer Anderson cake. The stories are pretty advanced for the day it was made in, the Supercar its self is a machine that I wish was real and best of all the excellent stunts that the car is showed performing are breath taking. A must see for all GA fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the marvel of the age!!! 14 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
Well, full credit to Network for fianlly getting this hard-to-find, seemingly forgotten series out on DVD. Earlier video releases messed about with the chronology of the episodes, or joined them all together to make one long episode out of four similar stories, so for the first time, this release has restored them back to their orginal glory - with greatly enhanced picture and sound quality to boot.
I'm assuming that anyone considering buying "Supercar" will already be acquainted with some of the more accessible shows of Gerry Anderson? If so, then trust me, this is one of the best. The puppets may look a bit primitive (compared to, say, "The Secret Service"), and the stories are less plausible than in some of his later shows (assuming "Thunderbirds" is plausible..), but what this one has over all Anderson's subsequent shows is a great sense of humour. The characters, and the incidents they find themselves in, are funny, without falling into the realms of comedy; one has the impression they weren't taking themselves too seriously when they made this, they just set out to entertain, both themselves and the viewing public. And, as with other early Anderson shows, this one features the token animal assistant, in this case, Mitch the monkey!
Overall, a charming show, and, with 39 episodes of it on this collection, you definitely get your money's worth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Supercar 19 Mar 2009
By MAC
Format:DVD
Great box set for a great price, and you get 2 series plus a surprisingly in-depth 2 hour documentary about the making of Supercar. There is a marked improvement in the model work and effects during the second series when Derek Meddings came on board and developed the kind of effects we all grew to love. For me the charm of the show was in the simple and innocent idea....it was a car, and it was super, hence Supercar.

This wouldn't impress the kids of today, but for men (and possibly a few women) of a certain age, it's a little bit of nostalgic magic. Super.

5.0 out of 5 stars Supercar superset 7 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
As a member of the baby boomer generation I remember watching Supercar on an old black and white TV. I remember when it ended and some "normal" programme took the slot while we waited for Stingray to appear. Oh wonderful days. The show will be a classic for some time. Even my granddaughter is now showing an interest despite the hi tech offerings available.

This box set is complete (every episode of this relatively short series in bite size chunks) and a must for anybody with nostalgic memories of the classic early Gerry Anderson.

But it doesn't stop there, the extra special features are worth the purchase on their own. You not only get pdfs of some classic annuals, a Supercar story book and some great galleries but you get the full length documentary "Full Boost Vertical - The Supercar Story". It is a fascinating behind the scenes look at the making of the shows with all the secrets that they had to improvise for the first time.

History in the making and a must for fans of the genre
