    New Captain Scarlet CG series - Good and Bad news

    The good news: the second 13 episode Captain Scarlet series started airing here in the UK today

    The bad news: it is being shown as a feature in the truly awful Ministry of Mayhem programme.....again

    The really bad news: I didn't find out it was on till nearly 11:40am so missed it

    Do you think us in the USA will ever get to see the shows? Maybe a letter campaign is needed to convince the powers that be to get it to us in the States.

    Correct It is being released on 17th September. Cheapest I've found so far is at Play.com, £22.95p:

    I think the problem is the number of available episodes. The US networks aren't interested in a 13 epsiode series. Now that there are 26 episodes available, it might get picked up somewhere...but I wouldn't hold your breath

    Hm...I think I was briefly earlier this year

    However, if I tell you that today I had to deal with BT customer services, three different branches of the Pensions/Benefits Office, a Local Authority Housing Office, my local garage and the receptionist at my new dentist before visiting my mum in hospital and having a long conversation with her Occupational Therapist and the Ward Sister....maybe you can understand the head-banging

    Hehe, can't help thinking the Mysterons have already visited some of the 'firms' in question....which is part of the problem with them So anyone know the number of my local branch of Spectrum ?
