Captain Scarlet 1.21 – Place of Angels

The last installment, Daniel told us, was the worst of the series, but this one, in his book, was “the greatest episode ever!” It’s about a worldwide manhunt for a Mysteron agent who has stolen a dangerous biological agent that could kill ten million people. You’d think the world authorities would put a kibosh on this kind of research while the world’s at war.

I really liked the attention to detail in this one. The lab, located outside Manchester, is full of computers and glass vials and those little spiral things to pour colored liquid down, and a separate safe room to manipulate chemicals and test tubes with clamps. The Boulder dam set is onscreen for less than a minute in several establishing shots, but it looks fantastic. The team put a lot of work into this one, and it shows.
