I was pleasantly surprised recently to stumble across this TV series as I was a fan of the original and am glad that the characters can now do so much more in the CGI format. The new stories are great. I bought the series 1 box set on DVD and enjoy watching and re-watching my favorite episodes! This box set only covers the first 13 episodes which aired on UK TV in 2005, but am hoping that the series 2 box set will be available before too long as they finished airing in November of 2005. I regret having missed seeing those episodes at the time as we do get that channel over here in Ireland. The DVD has some decent bonus features... I recommend checking it out! Any true Captain Scarlet/Gerry Anderson fan owes it to themselves! Cheers!
