Sorry that you feel so strongly about it that, after just half a dozen posts, you have left the forum. We all love Barry's music and for this reason it seems unlikely that people here will be...

Sorry, but your latest post doesn't make much sense. Why not just say "I would rather pay 100 for it than 200." And whilst I don't suggest that this is on your mind, you could buy it for 100 and...

That is terrible! Admittedly I don't have that many comics left either, but there's no way my parents would have just chucked them on the bonfire!

Almost as bad as when Tony Barwick told me...

If I may jump in here... (well I'm going to anyway).

I think it's fair to say that ALL TV shows (for example) have some kind of a 'following'. However, there is a point at which a following...

Popularity of the various series...then and now.

As a kid growing up in the 1960s and '70s (I was born at about the same time as Stingray was being launched into the world), I saw most of Gerry Anderson's classic shows first time around. They were...

As someone who watched all these shows when they were first on, I have always been of the view that UFO and Scarlet were very, very close in popularity, but UFO was and remains the more popular of...

I can't see there being the sort of interest in Joe 90 as there was in Captain Scarlet. I wouldn't bet too much on the Most Special Edition box set selling all 1,000 copies.

Like 'The Secret Service' then...?

I saw it on a bootleg video about 30 years ago, I think. I thought it was pretty awful. Apparently Gerry, when he watched it back, thought so too. I can't see...

I would have thought that 'Blake' from The Secret Service was literally a puppet of Captain Scarlet that had therefore previously been used as such.

It was interesting to see Mary Turner on the show with Captain Scarlet, Lady Penelope, Rhapsody Angel and Colonel White.

Someone has just posted a clip from Lift Off with Ayshea - unseen for 45 years! Tragically - criminally - every episode of the series was lost when the original tapes were wiped! Now, thanks to...

That's what is says on the renewal form, yes. Be interesting to see how they fill it, as the others have all been between 64 and 72 pages.

Captain Scarlet and New CS

I've just started to have a little re-watch of my CS blu-rays and last night watched one of my least favourite eps - Point 783. It seems ludicrous that the Mysterons go to all that trouble of...

I haven't seen it - I find 'superhero' films a bit too childish even for me - but I gather that there is a clip of Stingray in the new Aquaman film. This may pique interest in it and justify a big...
