The hit 1960s' TV show, Joe 90, is back and ready to take on modern TV screens with this special deluxe edition Blu-ray of volume 4. This edition is a limited run of 1000 units, so grab yours whilst you still can as it is available exclusively with The Official Gerry Anderson Store and via Network on Air.

Joe 90 is the penultimate Supermarionation show from Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and Century 21 Productions following the success of the UK's beloved Thunderbirds show. Follow the adventures of Joe McClaine, a schoolchild turned superspy. When his scientist father invents the BIG RAT device, enabling knowledge and experience transfer to the brain, Joe gains the knowledge to become an astronaut, undertake brain surgery and even fly a jet. With these talents, Joe is hired by the WIN (World Intelligence Network) as their special agent.
In honour of the fiftieth anniversary since the broadcast of Joe 90’s first episode comes this special deluxe edition. Using original 35mm film elements and remastered into HD on Blu-ray, the show has never looked better! Plus, it’s the perfect nostalgic timing to re-acquaint yourself with Joe 90 and introduce it to a new generation of kids or grandchildren as a beloved children’s TV show.

I purchased this set along with the other three volumes and I am so glad I did. Not only was I blown away by the quality of the restoration work done on the episodes (I haven't watched Joe 90 in many many years!) but the contents in this deluxe box are just lovely and make me sorely regret having missed out on the Captain Scarlet set. Andrew Pixley, the man who is physically incapable of writing a thin book, has really put the work on the viewing notes for this show, with the same dedication he displays for other more 'grown-up' shows such as Callan. The comic is hugely entertaining with a few cheeky digs at TV21, and as a bonus it contains one of those legendary cutaway pictures from God himself, Graham Bleathman (some say he also does the odd People's Friend cover too)! Like many other people I was hoping the outer box would be printed up as Joe's briefcase, but the colour scheme and subtle design Network have gone with are very pleasing to the eye.
