It’s time for Jack and Katherine to face the wrath of the Mysterons once again! Playing her Thunderbird 1 lifeline, Katherine selects the first episode of the original Captain Scarlet series to sit down and watch. How will it compare to the CGI remake that Jack and Katherine enjoyed a few weeks previously?
The Mysterons from Mars have declared a war of nerves against the Earth, and one man, whom fate has made indestructible, is ready to lead the fight against them, his name: Captain Scarlet. In a series first broadcast in 1967, Captain Scarlet and the Spectrum organisation utilise their global resources and futuristic equipment to prevent devastation from the Mysterons, an alien intelligence taking their revenge against the Earth. The Mysterons have the power to destroy man or machine and rebuild them to carry out their evil threats. This dark tale is told with more advanced Supermarionation puppets than ever before which have been rendered, for the first time, in realistic proportions. Gerry Anderson’s Century 21 team were hungry for further success following phenomenon of Thunderbirds. But what did Jack and Katherine have to say about Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons?
Jack’s a massive Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Space: 1999 etc.) fan, and Katherine isn’t. In order to bring about peace in the household, Katherine has agreed to watch the first episode of every Gerry Anderson series in existence.
