Thunderbirds

“5…4…3…2…1….”

Welcome to the ‘Thunderbirds’ page on ‘Bradley’s Basement’.

I’ve been re-living my childhood! – “THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!”

Over Christmas 2014, my parents got me the complete series of the original ‘Thunderbirds’ on DVD. I couldn’t be happier as I enjoyed this classic kids’ TV show and it is one of my favourite viewing pleasures. ‘Thunderbirds’ is one of my favourite TV children’s shows when I was a kid. I loved every minute of it.

I loved everything about ‘Thunderbirds’ including the vehicles, the characters, Lady Penelope and his chauffeur Parker and of course the villainous Hood. I highly recommend this show to anyone who hasn’t seen it. This is a 1960s TV show wonderfully produced and created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.

The series uses the Supermarionation technique in their shows, which is a combination of model effects for the machines and puppets for the characters (I always thought they were real people 😀 ). Set in the year 2065, ‘Thunderbirds’ is a series about the Tracy family including Jeff and his five sons.

Jeff’s five sons are Scott, Virgil, Alan, Gordon and John. They live on Tracy Island and run a top secret organisation called International Rescue. Whenever called for help around the world, the Tracy brothers set off to the danger zone in the super-powered, highly-equipped Thunderbirds machines.

The complete ‘Thunderbirds’ DVD collection is a 9/10-disc DVD set, containing all the ‘Thunderbirds’ episodes and all of the ‘super features’. I have my favourite episodes from the series as well as my favourite characters and Thunderbird vehicles. I’m sure there are favourites for you from this series.

I’ve enjoyed re-watching ‘Thunderbirds’ and re-living my childhood again. I used to have the Thunderbird toys when I was young. I enjoyed playing with Thunderbird 2 and dropping Pod 4 into the bath with Thunderbird 4 coming out. ‘Thunderbirds’ has brought back fond memories for me when I was a kid. If you’re looking for classic kids’ entertainment, you can’t go wrong with this.

I’ve had the DVD cover of the complete series of ‘Thunderbirds’ signed by Shane Rimmer (who voiced Scott Tracy in the TV series) when I met him at the ‘Dimensions 2015’ convention in Newcastle, October 2015

Here on ‘Bradley’s Basement’, my reviews for each of the episodes from the two seasons of the original ‘Thunderbirds’ series are added to my blog. I hope to add my reviews on the two movies ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ and ‘Thunderbird 6’ and maybe add reviews on the 2004 ‘Thunderbirds’ film and on the latest ‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ reboot series. I will let you know via an announcement.

Here are links to lists of the Thunderbird machines and the Thunderbird characters that feature in the series.
