The voice acting was awful, overacted and over stated. What kids want is shows that doesn't patronise them with crap and predictable dialogue. As said before everything looked amazing apart from the character design. They all looked liked plastic Ken dolls.

It's no wonder that my 7 year old nephew can't watch today's kids programmes because they're so awful and rather watch stuff from the 80's and 90's on youtube

The real world sets really worked and added proper weight and debris that CGI has never been able to recreate.


Yeah the voices could have been better but this is a ....."kids" show...

The problem is that adults for too long has always used "It's a kids show" as some sort of get out cause for bad TV.

Think of a decent kids movie or TV series, one that's actually very popular and it has none of the problems that most rubbish shows have.

Saw 10mins of this earlier and although Thunderbird 2 looked excellent in 2015 then I turned off because of the dialogue.'Hmm,what's this red button do? Shall we press it or not? Hey,what's the worse that can happen'
Turned over and watched Paul Blart:Mall Cop again

I think its the dialog more than the voices i h8

Shame as this could have been great. Why can producers not capture what made classic tv classic.
The real world sets in this show hit the spot though but it jars going from real sets to cgi characters.

The ships and vehicles were spot on for me. Even a bit od a homage to space 1999 with the head of the deep sea research rig being like the eagle transport nose. Couldn't pick up much of the dialogue as was watching it in a room full of people talking and wasn't allowed to put the volume. Will keep it on series link and see how it pans out.

I was pretty impressed. Yes they are all Ken and Barbies, but the design and the models really played well - they had real weight that mirrored the original perfectly. Nice little homages to the old show (Stingray/Eagle/Lemon squeezer) plus a couple of nice extensions to the original. I particularly liked TB2 picking up Pod 4 from the sea, something I don't think you ever saw in the original. Plus all the desk chairs getting backwash as TB1 shot past. The getting dressed part for TB3 seems to split into male and female sides too

Jeff may not be 'dead' but I bet we never see him.

Yes - I enjoyed it.

Getting a little confused by the episodes here, was the first one a two parter or something?

I've got one about a Seaquake which is Episode 1
Then one about space debris recording tomorrow, which is episode 3. Where is episode 2?

Wikipedia says 1 and 2 were shown on April 4th

Space debris is episode 2. But it's only 20 minutes long. It was shown on ITV at 8am this morning. Not much in the way of rescues this week, more like Mission Impossible.

Pilot must have been extra long.

The Pilot was considered Ep 1 & 2 because it was double the length, it's pretty common

Cheers, I thought I'd read they'd extended all episodes to be original series length

Well I have to admit I really enjoyed both episodes, the dialogue didn't bother me or the look of the brothers. Not sure I fancy the Alan is a kid who can't be trusted (but can be trusted with a rocket ship) storyline, bit like the movie. Still a very worthy effort.

Enjoyed it too. Good fun with lots of nods to the original series. The model work is superb & the CGI blends really well. Not too bothered by the voice acting or looks of the Tracys, though Lady Penelope looks a bit odd to me for some reason.

Thankfully they seem to have dropped the "5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Thunderbirds Are Go!" voiceover for every launch sequence after the pilot.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if that line is original dialogue from the 60s show, or just a really good impersonation?

I wasn't sure myself, maybe the guy who did it is still around?

Died in 1977 it seems.

Parker is the only regular original in this new series.

It is not brilliant and episode 3 had some timing issues - UK goes from daylight to pitch black in 30 minutes?? - but myvson is really enjoying it.

I love how they have kept the 'preview of what is coming up' during the title sequence from the 60s show.
