    My Dad used to watch Thunderbirds first time round, then my brother and I became obsessed with the reruns.

    Of course now I'm a lot more cynical and laugh at the lame dialouge/plotting and way the puppets move. But it's still fab*. Although I shall always maintain that Captain Scarlet is/was better.

    the man had vision and i think all of his shows were/are excellant.....the plots are always a little silly but i think its most impressive what he did to make the shows possible...the sets are AMAZING.....
