Deserves Better
27 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best DVDs I've ever bought, this is a beauty that hasn't been given the credit it deserves. I was lucky to get it at all! There've been various TV series with the same number of episodes as this and most of them got their own cinema films and/or extra series, yet all this got was a small fan-base. What was it that drove people away, especially since Thunderbirds has been popular for so long and they both share the same basic plot-line? They just don't make them like this anymore, it's all fancy 3D stuff now and that can often make the animation look worse, less realistic in various ways. The series itself is brilliant, but the homage is just too low.
