Super Adventure Team is about the members of a high-tech action-adventure team, who spend more time dealing with assorted sexual exploits than they do saving the universe. The team is led by the idiotic Colonel Buck Murdock, who manages to be the hero no matter how badly he screws up each mission. Murdock's love of adventure is matched only by his love for Talia Criswell. While Murdock and Talia are rolling in the sack, Talia's husband, the brilliant but clueless Dr. Benton Criswell, remains locked in a state of denial. Finally there is the trigger-happy, Murdock-hating Major Landon West and the sexually confused Chief Engineer Head. The show parodies the same style of Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds, where the show is acted out with marionettes.

Who owns the rights?
14 September 2004 | by PLawrence99cxSee all my reviews

I heard (on NPR) that Gerry Anderson (creator of the brilliant Thunderbirds series) bought the rights to 'Super Adventure Team.'

That's why it can never be rebroadcast.

Unfortunate, since with 'Team America: World Police' coming out soon, now would be a good time for the sister MTV division to relaunch SAT.

There was also a 'Thunderbirds' parody on Saturday Night Live (The Go Lords) and of course the Orbitz commercial.

I highly recommend catching an episode of the original 'Thunderbirds'(1964), or its evil twin 'Captain Scarlet' (1967), as an introduction to this genre.

Andersons' crew clearly had to relearn film-making and especially editing to work effectively with puppet stars. The result is the unique quick cut style that still holds up today.
