There's a great clip HERE from the new series, of the Angels getting attacked by the Canadian Airforce. Who'd have thunk it? :lol:

That's not Captain Scarlett! That's just a commercial for a whole bunch of toys for kids to buy with crappy characters.
(And Lt. Green's had a sex change! :shock: )

He's right - :shock:

They need the strings and/or stop motion (like Wallace & Grommit) 'cos they have to be slightly naff :roll:

:lol: Oh I think they've achieved a certain amount of naff-ness. :wink:

Anyone remember Star Fleet? Sort of Gerry Anderson meets Anime. :D

It was called X-Bomber in Japan.

Now that is naff :lol:

The thing with the cgi Captain Scarlet though is that it's not naff enough because it looks (to me anyway) like every other cgi computer/console/RPG game out there. In its heyday super-marionation was the only game in town and so people loved it for all it's naffness and didn't mind the strings (although by Scarlett you could barely see them at all). We're too familiar with cgi now for it to be unusual and so unless you're making it as live action (with Heather Graham as Destiny Angel maybe like Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft) then there's nothing to distinguish it in any way is there? :lol:
