Joe McClaine is a 9-year-old boy whose adoptive father has developed a method of transferring specialist "brain patterns", and hence skills, into his son's mind. As a result, Joe is able to become a test pilot, brain surgeon, etc, as needed. Combined with his innocent appearance, he becomes an agent for the World Intelligence Network.Written by
Stingray was good, Thunderbirds were fantastic, and Captain Scarlet was awesome - but for me Joe 90 was the best of all. Maybe because I was about "Joe's" age when I watched it that it seemed all the more wonderful.
Typical Gerry Anderson - superb sets, rocking explosions and fantastical vehicles. What more could you want! Haven't seen it for years on TV but as all the others have made it back to UK TV fingers crossed...
(P.S. Every kid I grew up with who wore glasses probably hates this show!)
