Storyline

Remake of the hit 1960's "Supermarionation" television show. In the 21st century, Jeff Tracy, a former astronaut, amasses a colossal fortune and decides that he must use it to benefit others. His answer to this desire is to create International Rescue, a unique private emergency response service equipped with customized designed vehicles and equipment that enable the organization to react to any crisis whether it be in sea, air, land, or space. Jeff's five sons volunteer to operate as the pilots and field agents, as well as "Brains" (real name unknown) who acts as the teams' technical developer and engineer. In addition, Jeff's friend, Kyrano and his daughter Tanusha aka Kayo (based on the original series Tin-Tin character) agree to be the support staff. In addition to the field team, IR also maintains an intelligence network with Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward and her ex-con chauffeur, Parker as the chief agents in this arm. The series depicts this team as they answer various calls for... Written by annonymous

Thunderbirds are NO!
4 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

OK, confession first. I loved the original series when I was ten years old mumble years ago; and it was with a mix of dread and anticipation that I checked out the first episode of this re-boot. With my kids, I hasten to add. And it was just AWFUL.

I don't object to the new CGI format, nor the fact that they've added a girl character to placate the PC crowd. My principal objection is the pacing of the rescues. The whole thing goes past in a lightning blur. Back in the good old days, one of the great merits of Thunderbirds was the way it built up the tension. The slow crawl of Thunderbird 2 to its launch ramp was an agonising thrill when I was young; and it always took ages to cut through steel doors. Now it's just wham, bam, and mission accomplished. There's no tension, no nail-biting edge-of-the-seat stuff, no sense of peril as the rescue proceeds. Instead, a roller-coaster ride of "Meh..." And for those of you that point out that I'm no longer the target audience, it didn't hold the attention of my kids (aged nine to twelve) either. Perhaps I'll look out some DVDs of the original to show them how it SHOULD be done.
