TV Theme Of The Week: Joe 90

10/12/2010 at 5:07 pm (TV Theme Of The Week)


What could possibly be wrong with getting your 9 year old son to go on secret missions to thwart international terror plots? Well absolutely nothing, if you’re Professor Ian “Mac” McClaine.

This late 60’s Gerry Anderson puppet series gave the world the concept of Joe90. A boy who’s brain patterns were altered to give him heightened intelligence and experience, via a machine called BIG RAT – Brain Impulse Galvanoscope Record And Transfer (I retain a lot of useless information, but Wikipedia does come in very handy). This machine could feed all sorts of details into young Joe’s head, enabling him to go undercover as a schoolboy, but with all the abilities of a pilot, or surgeon or what have you. Imagine a cross between Ben10 and Dollhouse.

But the reason why I’ve chosen this particular theme? It’s another damn funky Barry Gray tune. I swear, you could put this on in a club, give the beat a bit more oomph, and people would dance!
