This review is from: Captain Scarlet - Complete Series Box Set [DVD]  (DVD)
Beautifully presented. Magnificently restored to its former glory with a 5.1 mix to die for.By far the best of Gerry Andersons staggeringly creative output. It is darker in tone than the earlier shows and remains 60s SCI-Fi at its best. The design of the sets and vehicles is wonderful, symbolising the ultimate in 60s modernism/futurism , mix this with great simple tales and a fairly coherent mythology and you're on to a winner. Be warned If you buy this you will want the toys. An all round winner.

Mr. Mungo says:
The captain's face was modelled on Roger Moore and the realistic head size was made possible by placing the animatronics in the torso, rather than in the head, as with Thunderbirds, hence their "big-head" appearance. They still couldn't solve the problem of realistic walking in the puppetry, though, hence the sliding walkways device! Even so, it's still the best of Anderson's puppet series.
