5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the 60's Anderson series, 29 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Captain Scarlet - Complete Series Box Set [DVD] [1967] (DVD)
This review has spoilers in it.
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.
