5.0 out of 5 stars It's the marvel of the age!!!, 14 Feb 2012
This review is from: Supercar The Complete Series [DVD] (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.
