* AlternativeCharacterEnterpretation: Were the Mysterons [[HeWhoFightsMonsters genuinely benevolent beings turned bad]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero by a reckless attack by Spectrum]], or were they [[TautologicalTemplar always chaotic murderers who merely viewed themselves as benevolent]]? We naturally don't see much of their activity besides their war towards mankind, so don't know if they are any more pleasant off the clock, and at least once Spectrum tried to make amends they merely used it as means for another stubborn attack on them.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The series is perhaps the darkest of Gerry Anderson's series, with a large bodycount (for a series of its kind) in each episode. Many of these deaths tend to be rather gruesome, too, and oftentimes show deaths in full gruesome detail. Hell, the first episode alone featured Captain Brown being used by the Mysterons as a ''suicide bomber''.

** Lieutenant Green's reaction to Rhapsody's death is especially heartbreaking. Trying to contact Rhapsody, sounding like he's about to cry.
