The little green men are after usBy A.S from Wales , 17 Nov 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Be prepared for string vests worn on the outside, purple hair, and a catchy theme tune.
Corny lines,nothing deep, but Great fun, worth watching.

time hasn't treated it wellBy a customer , 19 Sep 2010i'm afraid that i was disappointed; despite a strong premise, and some wonderful special effects (i added the second star purely on the strength of Derek Meddings' model work), the whole series is let down by the usual Gerry Anderson weak execution of the storyline - generally, it feels as if each episode has about half-an-hour's worth of plot spun out to 50 minutes, and the dialogue and characterisation is poor and stilted (and remember, before you complain: this was never a kid's programme, it was supposedly proper prime-time drama. you may have fond half-memories of it from when you were a kid, but it wasn't aimed at you!). oh, it has its moments, but i'm afraid that the programme, for all its naive retro charm, and some strong concepts, wasn't really as good as we all remember
No strings attached!By a customer from Brigg , 30 Jan 2010Captain Scarlet for 'adults'.
Really enojoying these probably because i grew up with Gerry and Sylvian Anderson shows. Some great sets, costumes, stories and ofcourse trademark explosions.
One issue, the UFOs cannot fight for toffee!!!

one of the best series of it's generation
Absolutely UFOabulous!By a customer from Reading , 13 Feb 2009Hey - if you're around 40 then you will of grown up with this and know that this really was one of the best - and still is in some ways. If you're under 40 and don't remember this then you really should see it! An amazing series - if only the early 1980's really were like that . . .
U FUNBy a customer from Surbiton , 24 Jan 2009I would just like to add my voice to the opinion that this was and is a great show. If you haven't seen it you should. Gerry Anderson never bettered U F O.
