5.0 out of 5 stars Good honest entertainment, 20 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Stingray: The Complete Collection [DVD] [1964] (DVD)
As a thirty-something idly searching for the programmes I remembered as a kid, all the Gerry Anderson programmes featured high on the list - and I am now totally hooked! This box set is exactly what it says; all the episodes made of Stingray. This was the first TV series entirely made in colour and features the exciting music and groundbreaking special effects that are a trademark of the era and of Anderson. The technology might seem pretty archaic compared to now, but this is MORE than made up for in characerisation and narrative. Stingray contains larger-than-life characters with well thought out personalities, far-fetched adventure stories and is pure entertainment. The baddies and heroes are caricatures, the thrills so thrilling that it verges on ridiculous and it has healthy humour for adults and kids alike. If you like your entertainment to be fun, honest and straightforward, then you'll love this. Of all the Anderson series, this is probably the one with the highest tongue-in-cheek ratio - and there's something contagious about hearing the voice actors thoroughly enjoying what they are doing. And that title music has to be the most breathless piece of Barry Gray ever - even the orchestra sound like they are having a whale of a time!
