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.

      How to withstand the test of time

      What I really like is the fact that although some time has passed, and the medium seems to have phased out, this is still a series fun to watch.

      A nostalgic adventure!

      It was such an enjoyable experience to be reminded of the excellent quality of this adventure series. Having watched in black and white in the 60s the colour version is a pure delight. Being such a fun the bedroom was decorated with Captain Scarlet wallpaper!

      Captain Scarlet in year 2020.

      Good quality product, great set of DVDs, picture and sound perfect, now watching it with LCD tv, instead of old CRT tv. Only one problem is the case arrived in slightly damaged, there is a approx. 5mm hole at the front cover, like something sharp press into it, damaging both plastic and the paper cover, luckily, the discs didn't get damage.
