All thirty-two episodes on five discs plus a bonus disc containing a Captain Scarlet documentary.
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. --Mark Walker --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.Voir l'ensemble des Description du produit

"En 2050 une expedition sur Mars détruit une base " hostille ", grave érreure! les Mysterons débarquent sur terre, invisibles et indétectables... Le Spectrum (sorte de police internationnale) lutte face a un adversaire imprévisible, avec un arsenal impresionant de véhicules Hi-teck, commandés depuis un porte avions vollant (Cloud Base). Les Mysterons, qui ont le pouvoire de "récrée" en copie conforme leur victimes, infiltrent les plus hautes spheres du pouvoir grace a leur agent le Captain Black. Face à eux un seul Homme Indestructible: Le Capitaine Scarlet! ..." à mi-chemin entre les envahisseurs et les Thunderbirds a ne pas manquer!.

Also, the newer release of this set features a slimmer case. This is a classic show now in a more shelf friendly packaging.
Although I had access to Fireball and Stingray growing up, for some reason Captain Scarlet was not shown locally so this was all new for me. I had a blast watching it and highly recommend the show, especially if you liked the earlier series or the combination miniatures/full size sets with human actor shows that followed, UFO and Space: 1999.
Although filmed in Supermarionation, Captain Scarlet probably has more in common with UFO and Space: 1999 than the earlier Gerry Anderson shows with its more complex plots and graphic violence. The development of the puppets with more realistic proportions and an array of clever staging devices employed to eliminate much of the charming awkwardness of the earlier marionettes is also a notable aspect that the Gerry Anderson faithful will appreciate.
Like all Gerry Anderson shows you can count on top notch talent being employed for all aspects of the show including the writing, voice acting, miniatures, sound effects, and music. Fans of mid-century design will greatly appreciate the stylish interiors and often grandly futuristic architecture. The closing credit artwork is some of the most dynamic full-color comic illustration you may ever lay your eyes upon.
A few other things I really enjoyed:
-Captain Blue is voiced by Ed Bishop of UFO
-We get to hear Sylvia Anderson's voice portraying Melody Angel.
-The living dead Captain Black may have been the most mesmerizingly stylish villain to appear in any the Gerry Anderson series.
Unfortunately like UFO and Space: 1999 I think this show could have easily gone several more seasons. I guess like most other fans of Gerry Anderson shows we have to appreciate the wonders ITC made reality for us at the same time we want to throttle them for taking them all away far too soon.
Part II: For Disc Playback I have to give the set 2 stars.
This series is frustrating to play back but because I like the show so much I think it is worth the trouble. Particularly for the first and last episodes on each disc you may have to go through a few extra gyrations. However keep in mind that anything you can't trick your DVD/Blu-Ray player into playing can be watched without issue on your computer. That's a pain and generally something I would not be willing to put up with but as its the only way you are going to be able to see Captain Scarlet it is worth the extra effort in my opinion to have this little gem in my collection. Like UFO and Space: 1999 I know over time I will enjoy watching Captain Scarlet again and again.
