Captain Scarlet 1.31 – The Inquisition

As is often the case with adventure shows, one of the last episodes of the run is a clip show. This one has a frame story of Captain Blue being interrogated by somebody claiming to be from Spectrum Intelligence, and it features clips from the episodes “Big Ben Strikes Again”, “Crater 101,” and “The Trap.” The clip from “Crater 101” includes a clip from earlier in that episode, so at one point, yes, Captain Blue relates a flashback of a flashback.

Since there’s not much to say about clip shows except how frustrating they are, I’ll note that the only real disappointment in this set from Timeless Media Group is that every one of the episodes contains actor Ed Bishop’s narration, “Leading the fight, one man whom fate has made indestructible. His name: Captain Scarlet!” Some of the episodes were later given a new voiceover by Donald Grey: “Captain Scarlet is indestructible. You are not. Remember this; do not try to imitate him.” I love that and wish it had been included!
