This first set of Captain Scarlet features 6 episodes. If like me you first watched these as a kid, probably in black and white, it is marvellous to see them now in remastered colour with 5.1 sound. The picture quality is really very good.
Although I have always preferred Thunderbirds, I have grown to love Captain Scarlet over the years. Its a darker series overall. To this day I still love the spooky opening credit sequence with the cat screeching, and Captain Scarlet in the alleyway being shot and then pulling his own gun.
Although there aren't that many extras there is a an interesting commentary from Gerry Anderson on the first episode. I've got vol 1,2 and 5 and intend to get the rest!
I have enjoyed the the 1st episode, the only one I've seen so far, even better than when I watched them in the 90's. Though it will never be better than thunderbirds, joe 90 or secret service which are my favourite series (especially thunderbirds which was the 1st gerry Anderson I watched).
One of the superior productions by Anserson, set in the 21st Century, about a paramilitary world security force, thatin fighting a malevolent alien martian force that can't be seen. Ideal for kids, including the adult kids that grew up 1st time round on the programme.
