This show was pretty pants really, no real explanation as to exactly the good old captain got to be indestructible.
The greatest thing about this show was the mysterons. the little twin torch circles and the voice of the mysterons. i work in a call centre (I'm not saying who for!) and whenever a customer puts me on speaker-phone I instantly turn into the voice of the mysterons. "This is The Mysterons, we know you can hear us earthmen!", the older the customer - the bigger the laugh it gets. it's a wicked ice breaker, makes me giggle as well

hello IK-

well nya! Captain S could never be described as pants and...and and! AND! you just haven't understood what has happened to Scarlet! so there!

Scarlet is killed and copied-like all the Mysteron victims-so he's got that handy retro-metabolism thingy..therefore he can be smashed and he still survives etc...Luckily for Spectrum tho'-he can be brainwashed into forgetting his nasty Mysteronny ways-and he's a damned handy chappie to have on side!

So there! smiley - winkeye
