Awkward farce
13 October 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

"Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons" is aimed at children, and even with the dark subject matter, there will be the sillier entry on occasion.'Flight to Atlantica' is one of these. The Mysterons plan to destroy the control center for the World Navy by . . . well, by getting everyone on Cloudbase drunk and using them to bomb the secret underwater base. Picture Captains Blue and Ochre goofing around while piloting a bomber, all the while Scarlet and the Colonel race to stop them.

Injecting the show with humor worked in 'White as Snow' because there was a balance between light and serious. This one's never actually funny; the other reason I've never taken to this is Barry Gray's incidental music. It's bad.

One thing that's always bugged me about this is the celebration of Spectrum's anniversary. Wait 'til after hours and the Colonel won't throw a fit. And non-alcoholic champagne? That's more useless than decaf! If memory serves, this is the last time we see Captain Ochre. And given the right situation, he could've been an interesting character. It's unfortunate that this is his highest profile gig before signing off.

5/10
