There is no way to duplicate the weirdness of the original, so why bother?

Seriously? Gerry Anderson is barely cold in the ground and already they are defecating on his memory.....

Why not get your own ideas, and stop walking over classic Kids TV with new CGI versions...it didn't work for Captain Scarlet, and it won't work for Thunderbirds....simple reason being, the stories will be re-written, added to, changed and scripts will go off on stupid tangents, 'just because they can' due to CGI.

Just as long as Riker isn't directing the show and they don't let the kids save the day.

I think Vanessa hudgens is a bit too grown up and slutty to play Tintin.

It could be worse. They could be trying revive Clutch Cargo. For anyone who has never heard of it, check it out. It was super creepy

Yeah, I know the SynchroVox creeped some people out, but why does Clutch Cargo get all the ink?  'Space Angel' was done in SynchroVox, too.

Anyway, gotta say I'm surprised at all the dumping on the new series.  'Defecating on Anderson's memory'.  Jesus, opinionated much?  How 'bout, 'Let it get on the air, and *then* comment'?

My first exposure to Mr. Anderson's work was just before I started grade school, back in the late fifties.  I found 'Supercar' on TV, and I was hooked.  Then came Fireball XL-5, Stingray, Thunderbirds, UFO, and Space: 1999.  (Yeah, I know there were others; I missed out on 'Four Feather Falls', 'The Adventures of Twizzle', 'Torchy the Battery Boy', 'Joe 90', 'Captain Scarlet', and all the rest.)

My point is, we've got four people here in the house, and all of us loved 'Thunderbirds'.  Heck, Mom is in her '80's, and *she* still loves watching Thunderbirds on DVD.  Every one of us, when we heard about this new series, our reaction was 'Cool!  Can't wait!'.

Could it be crap?  Absolutely.  I was never very fond of the various follow-ons to Speed Racer, or the times Thunderbirds was 're-packaged'.  The less said about some of those, the better.

But Da-yum!  New Thunderbirds?  It's Christmas, man!  Might only be socks under the tree, but I still can't wait to start opening the presents.

Mega Steve - Just wanted to make it clear, I wasn't directing the bulk of that post at you; I quoted you because of the Clutch Cargo / SynchroVox, stuff, and then segued into the rest of my rant without signalling my turn.  My bad.  Several of the posters here just seemed to be too eager to shred the new series without seeing it.  I prefer to be optimistic.

No problem. Clutch Cargo was the only cartoon I'd seen like that. When my sister and I were kids, we'd draw the most terrible faces we could come up with on paper, cut out the mouth areas, and walk around the house saying quotes from the show.

Cool! I actually never saw Clutch. When I was a kid, though, there was an afternoon kid's show on WTAE from Pittsburgh called 'Paul Shannon's Adventure Time'. That's where I ran into 'Scott McCloud, Space Angel'. Still have fond memories of it.
