A colleague at work was kind enough to find and download the first ten episodes of the new CGI "Thunderbirds are Go" TV show. Many of you will know I've always been a huge fan of all Gerry Anderson's programmes - collecting toys and annuals, attending conventions, etc. I was a bit concerned at first that the revamped show would lose some of the original's quirky and imaginative nature but I needn't have worried. They've taken the best of the original show and updated certain aspects which just add to the pleasure. The CGI effects are world-class and the characterisation and plots are so impressive for what is essentiually a kids' show. JD also loves the Thunderbirds countdown to launch and all the explosions, which is a generational delight for me!
