Stage6: New Captain Scarlet

Update: Stage6 shut down on March 1, 2008.

If you’ve used the other links today, you’ve probably already run across these.

For everyone else, there are three episodes of Gerry Anderson’s New Captain Scarlet available.

This is another series not available in the U.S. on DVD. With the concentration of media over the past two decades, selling to American TV from Britain is not as easy as it used to be. Virtually every TV station that was independent is now aligned with a network. And all of these networks like to produce their own programming (thank you FCC for allowing that conflict of interest; ever recall how the Hollywood studios were made to divest themselves of their theater chains? this is that all over again!), leaving independent producers such as Gerry Anderson out in the cold. No, they don’t care if his programs could bring in ratings — they all want their greedy fat piece of the ownership pie. If they can’t own it, they don’t want it.

    You probably have already come across Gerry Anderson’s Thunderbirds – but if not try finding it. It’s brilliant.

    I saw Thunderbirds when it first aired in the 1960s! You are looking at someone practically raised by Gerry Anderson, beginning with Supercar in the very-early 1960s when all TVs were B&W.
