Content: It was very good quality visual & audio and was definitely a trip down memory lane at least from the few episodes I saw.
Condition: The item arrived in good condition, sealed from factory etc, however, upon inspecting the DVD's I found 3 of the 5 discs were scratched and 4 were 'cloudy' on the playing surface. I have researched into this and it seems this is a well known condition. People have said that it is caused by sub-standard manufacturing (many made in Mexico now) with poor adhesives etc. It is said eventually the DVD's will be unplayable.
This was returned with no problem through Amazon (handled well - even though not their fault). I also purchased The Fileball XL-5 and Stingray packages from the same series. The Fireball XL-5 had one very slightly spotty disc but no scratches so I will take a chance and keep it. The Stingray discs were perfect! They were of different manufacture. The Supercar & Fireball XL-5 discs have a silverish playing surface and Stingray was a goldish surface.
Hopefully this is not wht is to become commonplace in the DVD industry. In all fairness, this is the only time I have seen this and I have purchsed a lot of DVD's.
Better still: this is a better put-together set than the "Fireball XL5" box from a few months ago. There is one non-episode specific commentary track from Sylvia Anderson on the pilot episode, "Rescue", in which she describes the state of the company in 1959 and how they were able to get Supercar financed and on TV. There is also a great 30 minute documentary on the late special effects supervisor Derek Meddings with behind the scenes shots and reminisces from his former crew, a brief video tribute to Meddings from "Lord Of The Rings" director Peter Jackson, a 4 1/2 minute audio recording of a fan-club flexi-disc issued by a chain of petrol stations, a production stills gallery and a send-away coupon to receive a free copy of the new Supercar comic book. The episodes themselves are beautifully remastered, and look sharp and clear with little to no film defects. Thanks heavens they took good care of their negatives thru the years! It's also nice to be able to see the here-to-fore impossible to find second season episodes, with the revised opening theme and slightly modified vehicle design. (I do note, however, that my JVC brand DVD player has some difficulty navigating around the discs smoothly).
I've no idea why this show continues to bring me so much enjoyment over four decades since it first aired. But I'm grateful to be able to visit Black Rock Lab once again, and to be able to carry this icon of my youth with me into the future. So, Gerry Anderson (and A&E Video), a five year old boy salutes you with increasingly arthritic 48 year old hands.

The shows are entertaining but it is a kids show. Keep that in mind. On that point I enjoyed it, but it is not something I would watch a whole cd in one sitting.Published on March 22 2014 by E. A. Schattschneider
