Re: Thunderbirds are Gone - Gerry Anderson Dies
That was a pretty bad show. I'd remember watching it if nothing else on, but it certainly wasn't "must see" for this kid.
Regrettably, it's the old style "monster" stories that pretty much killed it. Star Trek had already demonstrated that not all alien creatures had to be hostile, and everyone could work together. If Space 1999 had worked that angle a bit better, the series could have spun off a few multi-episode story arcs.
Still, the special effects were extremely well made for a TV show, and the Eagles had the advantage of being a feasible design for the environment of the moon.
Watch my future television channel's public test broadcast!
Furniture and fixtures as well, most of the stuff was high end Italian.
Ian, whole premise of the show was bad I freely admit it; magnetic radiation which makes people go insane, causes spontaneous fusion in fissile material, then sends the moon floating off (intact despite some sort of formidable explosion) through a blackhole and into the vast distances of outer space, yet managed to come across some other planet, ship or thing every episode. Still was fun to watch however.
