Storyline

A misunderstanding on Mars provokes an alien race called the Mysterons to declare a war of nerves on Earth. Throughout the series, they continually make terrorist threats and attempt to follow through with their ability to create obedient duplicates of anyone they kill. Their key opponent is the international intelligence organization, Spectrum, whose agents are code-named according to various colours. Their top agent in this war is Captain Scarlet, an agent who was subjected to the duplication process, but was still alive at the time. As a result, his clone was able to shake off the Mysterons' control, but leaving being him indestructible and able to survive any wound. Together with his partners, Captain Blue and Spectrum's fighter squadron, The Angels, the now immortal Captain Scarlet must constantly struggle to thwart the Mysterons' ever present threats.

It will always be swinging
23 March 2000 | by (u.k) – See all my reviews

This show may have originally been made for kids but it is still loved by adults and kids alike. The voice of The Mysteron still sends shivers up my spine. I prefer it to Thunderbirds, although I still like Thunderbirds. The characters are much cooler in this, especially Captain Black - he kicks ass. I like those white aeroplane things, they're pretty cool. I always seem to like the bad guys more. Why will this show always be swinging? It so 60ish and it is 4 decades since then and it is still pretty popular. I remember when it made a comeback back in 93, that's how I first got into it. The one thing I did not like about the show was when the scene changed the picture would flash. I think Gerry Anderson's creations are the greatest.
