Trivia

For a long time the HD masters for the show were considered missing. However they were later found and a 10 year anniversary trailer for the series was released using HD footage. On the 50th official anniversary of the original series of, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967), a Blu-Ray release of New Captain Scarlet was released. However fans were displeased with Opening Titles which had been changed to remove footage from the 2 part Pilot with footage from the rest of the series. This was done because Gerry Anderson originally wanted do redo the first 2 episodes to make them look like the rest of the series in quality, and incorporate footage from the rest of the series into the opening but ITV bringing the show forward changed that plan. The Blu-Ray release was done after Gerrys Death in 2014 and the people in charge of the Blu-Ray release change the opening to reflect Gerry's wish but fans felt the new titles were not up to what Gerry would have expected.

Might be as good as the original.
19 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

More of a "re-animation" of the original, rather than an original take on the original Captain Scarlet, Gerry Anderson is back with more of a whimper than a bang.

First of, its currently shown in a children's Saturday morning show (Ministry of Mayhem), split in two between games and with a preview at the start of the second part. Secondly the transmission times keep changing (anything from 10:30am to 11am) Thirdly, the episodes seem to be heavily edited as scenes jump from one to another without any real reason. Lastly, there is usually a fairly annoying scrolling message during the first showing of the program.

The CGI for the most part is pretty good, with detail on hair, engine thrusts etc. Unfortunately in parts its also pretty poor - lip animation seems to be very limited, with no real changes of mouth shapes, depending on what words are said.

The actual script is pretty good, although it can be a little tacky in parts.

Whether it would be better to wait until later in the year to get the DVD set, and hopefully a better transmission time, will depend on whether you can stand MoM.
