Captain Scarlet 1.20 – Special Assignment

If you’re over the age of four, it’s pretty obvious that Captain Scarlet is undercover, pretending to go bad, racking up gambling losses, and drinking heavily. It’s especially obvious when, in the scene right before we see Scarlet losing at an Arizona roulette table, Colonel White flat out tells him “I have a special assignment for you.”

If you’re four, however, this is half an hour of bad things happening to the hero, and the revelation that all was planned doesn’t assuage the feelings of frustration and worry. “That was the terriblest episode ever,” said Daniel, and he said no more.
