This review is from: Terrahawks: The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
It was a real treat to be able to watch Gerry Anderson and Christopher Burr's "Terrahawks" when we were kids. When we were allowed, we would tape that week's episode from ITV onto a 30-minute VHS tape and watch it over and over again. It's fantastic to be able to own and watch each and every episode of this truly inspired series.
This was Gerry Anderson's final puppet effort, the first not to be shown on the BBC, and for me it's certainly a big step forward from the more popular Thunderbirds (although the theme is almost identical). The show is full of humour, technical gadgetry and heroic deeds. The box-set sees Doctor Tiger Ninestein and his Terrahawk organisation succeed in saving the Galaxy from Zelda, the Imperial Queen of the planet Guk - the dastardly old witch has only taken over Mars as a base from which to launch a 39-episode series of plots and schemes. Typical.
The set features all the episodes ever made, plus some good extras, including behind-the-scenes footage and technical specifications of the Terrahawk and Martian ships. Best bit? Richard Harvey's score - the man should be knighted for the best piece of kids TV music ever!
Great value for money for a light-hearted trip down memory lane. 10-10, Sergeant Major Zero !!!
