From Amazon.co.uk

"Filmed in VIDECOLOR [explosions, drum roll, music builds to a climax] and SUPERMARIONATION"! The opening sequence of Thunderbirds is itself a masterclass in Gerry Anderson's marionette hyperbole: who else would dare to make a virtue out of the fact that (a) the show is in colour and (b) it's got puppets in it? But everything about this series really is epic: Thunderbirds is action on the grandest scale, pre-dating such high-concept Hollywood vehicles as Armaggedon by 30 years and more (the acting is better, too), and fetishising gadgets in a way that even the most excessive Bond movies could never hope to rival. Unsurprisingly, it transpires that the visual effects are by Derek Meddings, whose later contributions to Bond movies like The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker echo his pioneering model work here.

As to the characters, the clean-cut Tracey boys take second place in the audiences' affections to their cool machines--the real stars of the show--while comic relief is to be found in the charming company of Lady Penelope and her pink Rolls (number plate FAB1), driven by lugubrious chauffeur Parker, whose "Yes, milady" catch phrase resonated around school playgrounds for decades. (Spare a thought for poor old John Tracey, stuck up in space on Thunderbird 5 with only the radio for company.) The puppet stunt-work is breathtakingly audacious, and every week's death-defying escapade is nail-bitingly choreographed in the very best tradition of disaster movies. First shown in 1964 and now digitally remastered, Thunderbirds is children's TV that still looks and sounds like big-budget Hollywood.

On this DVD: The four episodes are: "Edge of Impact", "Day of Disaster", Thirty Minutes After Noon" and "Desperate Intruder".

Product Description

Four more episodes of Gerry Anderson's cult Supermarionation series. In 'Edge of Impact', a Red Arrow aircraft crashes after being sabotaged by the Hood, and Thunderbird 2 speeds to the rescue. 'Day of Disaster' sees Gordon attempting to save two engineers trapped in a probe rocket which is set to self-destruct. In '30 Minutes After Noon', Scott, Virgil and Adam attempt to prevent the biggest nuclear bomb blast the world has ever seen. 'Desperate Intruder' sees the Hood attempting to beat Brains and Tin-Tin to a cache of treasure buried at the bottom of Lake Anasta.

I thought it would be great to let the kids understand my own childhood in relation to Children's television .

I just wish the film remake didn't really do the series justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thunderbirds are definitely go! 13 Jan 2012
As a 40 something, buying Thunderbirds for my 4 year old was a self-indulgent treat. It was great! I had forgotten how long the 'episodes' are. They're nearly an hour long! Well worth a few quid and thoroughly entertained my little boy at Christmas. I can certainly recommend them to anyone who remembers the original series.
