Oh the fun Gerry Anderson must have had in getting this episode aired - throughout the vault break in sequence there is displayed a case marked CUN -7; and another marked PUS - M. A totally delicious subversion of form - Bunuel and Felliini had to adjust their parameters based on this sublime essay. T'Birds was always a thousand years ahead of its time - and the best bit is that the story revolves around charity, love, and Brains creating snow on a tropical island on a Sunday on Christmas Day. Maximum points.

Goes out with a whimper instead of a bang
rt-ingram8 December 2017
Give Or Take A Million ends the original series of Thunderbirds with a whimper instead of a bang. The episode has none of the redeeming qualities that made the show so great; once again, the Tracy's allow a young boy on to the island, the story has no excitement, it's all told in flashback (which I'm not a fan of personally), and, the biggest sin of all, there is no rescue mission. The final scenes where Brains makes Tracy Island snow are charming enough, however, the episode would have been so much better if it contained the series' usual elements, and that would have made it more enjoyable.

A real shame.
