Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Somehow even as it stays true to the Gerry Anderson techno-fantasy formula of secret organizations, gadgetry, and action-packed adventure full of spectacular explosions and violent death, Joe 90 remains blithely unconscious of its own implications. The missions are as globe-trotting as anything in Anderson's classic Thunderbirds series, and sometimes Joe does save lives, performing a risky brain operation or rescuing trapped astronauts. Yet even then his criminally irresponsible father brainwashes the lad each episode before placing him in a highly dangerous adult situation. Though the production values remain way ahead of anything else being done on British TV at the time, the question remains: how did this ever seem like a good idea?
Joe 90 comes complete in a four-disc boxed set of the entire 30-episode series. The 25-minute episodes are presented in superb picture quality and full, detailed mono sound. Extras include commentaries on two episodes, character biographies, a photo gallery, and varied extras such as location stills. --Gary S. Dalkin

I can remember back in 1993 when Joe 90 came onto UK's screens that I really could not stand it. It made me think that Gerry Anderson had finally given up and just gave out any old thing. When this was released on DVD in the UK, I decided to give it a whirl and I really was not dissapointed. As a child, it really bored me. As a teenager-turned-adult, it really made me think about the morals of our society and the fact that there really are evil people in the world. Joe 90 says more then this and there are many laughs and edge-of-your-seat adventure along the way.
The DVD itself is absolutely spectacular. The episodes seems such fine print that the viewer does not mind the fact that the sound is mono. Everything has been done perfectly well and makes it stand among the rest in being a Gerry Anderson classic. As soon as you put this in your player, you will not be dissapointed. Everything you could want from a Gerry Anderson show is here: adventure, laughs, one-liners, great effects and brilliant story-telling. You are going to be amazed by what you see.
Tired of all the mindless CGI-saturated shows of today? Go back in time and enjoy the 1968 sensation of Joe 90. Once you get past the groovy sixties vibe that it has, it becomes an awesome experience.

I never saw this series back in the day, but was able to see Thunderbirds and Stingray regularly as a child. I figured I would give this a watch since the price was great. Read morePublished on November 13, 2011 by cubby1
This old entertainment is the original and better than the Spy Kid movies. Joe is like the kid version of The Matrix long before the Matrix existed.Published on January 21, 2011 by Victor Alonso
