Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lavender Castle [DVD] (DVD)
Travel to another dimension where strange aliens and worlds are commonplace in this unusual Universe. Follow the adventures of Captain Thrice and the crew of the Paradox as they search for Lavender Castle. The crew are not going to have an easy time of it as they must keep out of the clutches of the evil Dr. Agon.
This series was created in 1998 by Gerry Anderson ("Thunderbirds," "Captain Scarlet," "Space: 1999") and is made up of 26 - 10 minute episodes. The production is a mixture of stop motion and computer generated animation and really adds to the entire look of the show. Fantasy artist Rodney Matthews designed the characters and worlds for this charming series creating an interesting universe of wonder and adventure. The stories are more childish than other Anderson series like "The New Captain Scarlet" and "Thunderbirds" but they are still entertaining. "Lavender Castle" seems to be more like Gerry Anderson's earlier works of "Supercar" and "Torchy the Battery Boy."
The DVD itself is well laid out with the majority of the episodes on disc one and the remaining episodes and extras, including a game, on disc two. The only negative I found was there is a three minute trailer for other products that starts when you put the disc in and there is no way to stop it.
Any Gerry Anderson fan should like this, in my opinion it is one of the most unique of his series. Kids of all ages will want to follow Captain Thrice and the crew of the Paradox on their quest to find the fabled Lavender Castle.
