TV: J is for...

Joe 90

CEREBRAL DOWNER after the Supermarionation splendour of CAPTAIN SCARLET. Speccy twat Joe Maclaine gets into a spinning wicker basket thing (called “The Big Rat”, for fuck’s sake) which then enables him to download “expert knowledge” so he can join MI5-style agency WIM, become top international blonde superspy, fight crime and dispense derring-do. A flop, all told, not least thanks to there being no demented vehicles with gadgetry a-plenty, plus episode titles like “International Concerto”, “The Unorthodox Shepherd” and “Business Holiday”.
