A little off the beaten path ...
« on: September 25, 2015, 11:50:04 PM »
but I just remembered that the reboot of Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds, called Thunderbirds Are Go! happened and just watched a few episodes.  If I had a cam on me I would have the biggest smile.  Anyways it's a joint British/New Zealand production with effects done by Weta.  It's a rather seemless mix of CGI and physical/practical effects.  And it's a billion times better than the live-action film.

Yes it's kids fair so the action and plot isn't all that deep but ... these guys were one of the first costumed/uniformed heroes that I remember as a kid in the 60s.

Here's a sample of the show.
