When I started the Security Hazard blog just over four years ago I had recently moved to the other side of the world, was living with my incredibly generous and incredibly new in-laws, and (due to the joys of the US immigration system) faced many months of unemployment. It was a time that was scary and exciting in equal measure. With time on my hands, I turned my attention to something which had been an absolute constant in my life since Day 1 – the work of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.
It’s time for Jack and Katherine to reflect on their exciting adventure watching the first episode of every Gerry Anderson series. Standby for revelations, games, and a look into the future…
Jack and Katherine take a trip to Demeter City and watch the Space Precinct episode Double Duty to round off their journey through the Gerry Anderson universe and their mission to view the first episode of every series. But is this really the end of their Anderthon?
Special Agent Chloe – the dog – is called in to select this week’s adventure for Jack and Katherine. Chloe chooses Terrahawks, and Katherine is left to make her judgement on Expect The Unexpected, the opening story to one of Gerry Anderson’s most bizarre television series.
Katherine and Jack take their final outing into Supermarionation this week with Joe 90. What will Katherine make of Professor McClaine’s attempts to brainwash his young son, Joe, and sending him off on missions to single-handedly take down the most powerful criminals in the world?

The question is, will Katherine prefer Year 1 or Year 2?
Plunge into the Big Pear with this week’s podcast as Katherine and Jack explore Dick Spanner’s first mysterious adventure. Will the whacky humour win over Katherine or has Jack made another dumb move by showing her this series?
Katherine has been dreading watching Space: 1999. As far as she’s concerned its just too long and too boring. But as the crew of Moonbase Alpha face an apocalyptic nuclear disaster, maybe the drama and tension of this incredible piece of television will be enough to make Katherine change her mind…
Action, suspense and drama await Jack and Katherine this week as they sit down to watch the live action Gerry Anderson series, The Protectors! Will Katherine be able to handle the high altitude adventure and unapologetic grooviness of this classic 1970s television show?
It’s time to watch one of the strangest Gerry Anderson productions ever committed to film. Jack and Katherine sit down for a viewing of the 1973 pilot, The Investigator. This film is Jack’s guilty pleasure, and Katherine has to bear the brunt of a lot of nerdy analysis and now you, dear listener, get to share in her pain…
