Captain Scarlet: The Complete Collection [DVD] (Region 2 )

This box set includes all 32 episodes of the classic series!


Imaginative Supermarionation fun set in the year 2068 when Earth's security organisation, Spectrum, spearheads an expedition to Mars. The local inhabitants, The Mysterons, mistakenly believe the arrival of the earthlings signals attack. Captains Scarlet and Black are captured and given the power to recreate themselves, even after being killed. Scarlet escapes, maintaining loyalty to Spectrum, while Captain Black becomes The Mysterons' pawn and Spectrum battles the deadly forces of The Mysterons.

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.

Special features are a Gerry Anderson Commentary, original TV Adverts and stills Galleries.
