Just love this show--a wonderful tribute to the original WITH all the BEST of the new! Good guys win, family values, adventure, comedy, great visuals and music and voice talent....I have only ONE BIG COMPLAINT with AMAZON and it is about their synopses of the episodes:

"Childrens' series"?????? SAYS WHO! All grownups with a touch of whimsy and magic in their hearts know that loving the Thunderbirds it not only GO!......it is F.A.B. TOO!

(P.S. did anyone else notice in the 2nd episode of this season how "Moon Base Shadow Alpha One" was awfully familiar? Not only as Moonbase Alpha but also...of course, since we never saw it written out anywhere, how do we know the word isn't actually being spelled "S.H.A.D.O" ??? :)

The production values are excellent. Computer generation
Verified purchase
If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would. My only complaint is that there are only two seasons available. Thunderbirds Are Go is a loving remake that pays homage to the original (yes, I'm that old--I grew up watching the original). The production values are excellent. Computer generation, camera angles, voice acting and writing are all extremely well-done. I especially like the can-do attitude that is represented in the show. Problems arise and the characters adapt and overcome with good humor. They don't complain when they have a mission. They take care of business. These are lessons today's young people could learn. Finally, I like that the animation of the characters, in spite of otherwise flawless animation is a bit choppy and awkward--a delightful tribute to the original series.
F.A.B.

Thunderbirds aren't GOne.
Verified purchase
Breathing new life into a venerable series, "Thunderbirds Are Go Season 2" takes real, practical model and effects work, weds it to CG characters, and comes up with a very not bad mix. The second season model work no longer bobbles around like toys on strings, and the water effects are filmed now to give weight and scale, so, kudos. there. The heavy weight of Global Defense Force oversight presents a disturbing mini-totalitarian view of the future, but their planes are boss. Brains, you are not cool enough for your own catch phrase. Stop breaking the fourth wall. Parker, don't ever die. Also, I no longer want to punch Alan. Very much.

The characterisations are fun, the voice work is handled well...my only complaint with the "puppets" is with the heavy shadows and coloration of the "guest artistes". They are almost cartoonishly outlined and shaded.

Thanks too, for leaving the eco-disaster of the week which seemed a mainstay of season One.

All in all, it is a fun romp, and I await Season the Third.

High praise, too the the Freres Foster, doing yeomen's work of building upon Barry Gray's firm foundation. They remember his themes without aping them, and take off with their own high-adventure themes. I am awaiting delivery of a soundtrack album.

Overall, a great job, and a fun successor to the original.

Great Fun Series
Verified purchase
Pleasantly surprised as a grown up man that this has a certain appeal for that kid in me that diligently got himself out of bed to watch Saturday morning cartoons before the crack of dawn to be the first to decide what was on TV ahead of my siblings.

The animation has just a hint of miniature model scale to the vehicles so it retains the original feel of the 60's marionette production. This is pure fun with just the right amount of excitement to digest when as an adult I'm in charge of what goes on the TV screen ;-)

Thunderbirds ARE go!!!
Verified purchase
When I heard that Amazon would be offering this new version of Thunderbirds, I was intrigued. Now that I've just finished the second season of Thunderbirds Are Go I can honestly say I AM A COMPLETE FAN!!!. Between solid and entertaining stories set within a GLORIOUS world created by Richard Taylor and the unequaled WETA workshop, you wont find a more electric entertainment experience anywhere. This new version of Thunderbirds truly is FAB!!! looking forward to more seasons.

Saturday Morning Nostalgia
Verified purchase
I remember the original Anderson's version of Thunderbirds I am old enough to remember the original Anderson version of the show on Saturday morning television. In "Super Marionation", and all the other hokey production values of that era. The new computer graphics are beautiful, but the writing is still at the original level. I suppose there are aiming for the same age range and audience. They had with the original. They cannot resist the nostalgia! Nor can I :)

This is an awesome show. My seven year old son just loves this show. Especially because he has one of my old dinky toy thunderbird 2 toys. The montages to space 1999 and other sci-fi shows is awesome. Having the scenes setup with focus like the origional where the ships somewhat look like the origional is awesome. The stories are as good or better than any of the old sci-fi shows. Amazon please make more of this. This is so unique. Maybe it's time to recreate the old UFO series. Thank you.

Calling All Nerds!

Prior to Amazon, I would have thought it impossible to continue the Thunderbirds without the Anderson's at the helm. Like other remakes, I thought this would be a pale imitation. Fortunately I was ever so grateful to find Season 1 was a continuation of the series and equal in quality! True it is done with models and CGI but these original will please any fan of the series as well as entice a new generation. FAB
