Trivia

Gerry Anderson was informed that New Captain Scarlet would be aired in a Saturday evening slot, same as the BBC did with the new series of Doctor Who (2005), which had also done very well in that same time slot. However at the last moment ITV, who had invested a large amount of money into New Captain Scarlet, went to Gerry and his production company and asked them to replace the series theme music with an updated version of the original Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967) theme sung by The Spectrum, using a popular band/recording artist of that year. ITV had apparently wanted to cash in on the popularity of Busted's Thunderbirds Are Go! song from the soundtrack of the 2004 movie Thunderbirds (2004) (which was a movie based on Gerry's original Thunderbirds (1965) TV series) . The costs involved would have been enormous and would have been met by the production company rather than ITV, so Gerry refused, knowing that there would be consequences and so ITV ordered the airing date be brought forward before Gerry could go back and make any adjustments and changes that the series needed, including changes in the opening titles. Then ITV buried New Captain Scarlet in a Saturday Morning slot within the Ministry of Mayhem show, splitting each episode in two and providing very little publicity. See more »

New Captain Scarlet in HD
2 December 2006 | by kmmcdonaldSee all my reviews

Having just acquired access to the HD Animation channel through Dish Network in the US, I stumbled upon the New Captain Scarlet for the first time. So far, I have seen about 4 episodes. (It is shown daily on the HD Anime channel, followed by an episode of "Youri the Spaceman.") In 70" high definition, the New Captain Scarlet is absolutely spectacular ... the most impressive HD experience I have had so far in these past four weeks.

I am a fan of some of the early Supermarionation series (e.g. Fireball XL5, Stingray), and have always been impressed with the quality of direction and production, and of the respect that Anderson and company has apparently had for their juvenile audiences. Each series has had a level of detail and story exposition that goes far beyond any comparable juvenile adventure series here in the US at the time.

However, I was not a fan of the first Scarlet series. The puppets were just too stiff to maintain any involvement. At least Steve Zodiac and Venus went ice skating once in a while.

But I digress. The new series is impeccably detailed, and the action is superbly directed and genuinely exciting. In contrast with the original series, the characters can at least walk, and much more. The stories aren't much to speak of, but every other aspect of production is impressive.
