All 32 episodes of Gerry Anderson's cult Supermarionation series chronicling Captain Scarlet's battle to save Earth from a Mysteron invasion. The episodes are: 'The Mysterons', 'Winged Assassin', 'Big Ben Strikes Again', 'Manhunt', 'Avalanche', 'White As Snow', 'The Trap', 'Operation Time', 'Spectrum Strikes Again', 'Special Assignment', 'The Heart of New York', 'Lunarville 7', 'Point 783', 'Model Spy', 'Seek and Destroy', 'Renegade Rocket', 'Crater 101', 'Shadow of Fear', 'Dangerous Rendezvous', 'Fire at Rig 15', 'Treble Cross', 'Flight 104', 'Place of Angels', 'Noose of Ice', 'Expo 2068', 'The Launching', 'Codename Europa', 'Inferno', 'Traitor', 'Flight to Atlantica', 'Attack On Cloudbase' and 'The Inquisition'.
First broadcast in 1967, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons was the most grown-up of all Gerry Anderson's SuperMarionation adventures. There are gadgets and toy-friendly machines galore, of course--like the Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle, the Angel Aircraft and Cloudbase itself--but, unlike the colourful fantasies of Stingray and Thunderbirds, this series' concern with an implacable, vengeful enemy, conspiracies and double-agents drew its inspiration from James Bond and the Cold War spy dramas of the 1960s. Special effects whiz Derek Meddings imbues the action sequences with a truly Bondian grandeur and, like the sinister Spectre of the Bond films, the Martian Mysterons seem all the more hostile for their unseen presence, their agents infiltrating every organisation dedicated to their destruction just as it seemed the Soviets were doing at the time. The indestructible Captain Scarlet is killed then resurrected every week (though not like South Park's Kenny), and more often than not the unstoppable Mysterons emerge triumphant, and always undefeated. The varied cast of Spectrum agents and their voice characterisations also aim at verisimilitude (Captain Scarlet, voiced by Francis Matt hews, sounds like a grim Cary Grant), while the puppetry is more realistic than ever.
This box set contains all 32 episodes, with newly remastered picture and Dolby 5.1 surround sound. The DVD box also includes extra features on each disc, plus a sixth documentary disc, "Captain Scarlet: S.I.G.". In its new digital incarnation, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons still looks and sounds like the epitome of 60s cool. --Mark WalkerSee all Product Description

Such was the enthusiasm of the presenters for this bit of old fashioned show from the 1970s that they got Gerry Anderson (gasp) himself onto the show and got him to talk a bit about how it all came about.
It's really interesting to see how the stature of this man has grown so much over the years. Seemingly stuck in a medium that had some people in this business chuckling into their sleeves, he imbued everything he touched with a degree of professionalism and sheer artistry that left almost everyone else for dead.
You forget the fact that the action is puppet based very fast. It's kind of early manga (some folks here will HATE me for that) but in a certain sense, this thing about action films for kids very much came from these miniatures and Gerry Anderson owns this stuff as no-one else could hope to do.
Captain Scarlet was done after Thunderbirds, and the sets are better (probably) as well as the figures. The stories; they're rather dark, on the whole. An organisation called Spectrum is devoted to hunting down what amounts to terrible, unseen phantoms, whose true character is never entirely explained. We never see the enemy and they remain forever, tantalisingly out of reach of the camera.
The characters of Captain Scarlet, Colonel White, Lt Green, and the others are all rather touching; it's odd, because although quite often it's all rather heavy handed with references to duty and courage, and all the old school stuff, there are times when it's really quite... well uplifting. I don't care what you say about that.Read more ›
Often overlooked due to it's being in the shadow of the more famous Thunderbirds this is none the less an amazing series with some excellent special effects and the very best plot. For the most part it revolves around 3 characters.
Captain scarlet: THe main hero and a man made almost indestructable by the mysterions when they tried to make him their pawn.
Captain Blue: Scarlets partner and very much an ordinary man in a sunddenly strange world.
Captain Black: The man who destroyed the mysterion city in the first place and is now paying a million times over as a mysterion slave.
In addition there are serveral supporting charcters. Col White the head of Spectrum and the man in the Jeff Tracy, commander Shore role of past storys. Lt Green the coms officer and in a real first a black man. There is no female love intrest or agent as such in the TinTin or Lady P frame but instead the all female flying squadren (angels) of whom Symphony the defacto squad commander is the most fleshed out.
Minor problems do exist. The other Angels are little more then bit players and most of the agents are never fleshed out.
Still if you like Anderson you have to buy this set.
