And no, I am not talking about the movie from 2004, I'm talking about the original series from 1964-1965.

Just saw a few episodes today, they're still bloody brilliant. Special effects, props and storylines are top-notch, and I love how a it as a "children" show is so serious.

Pure awesomeness. Discuss.

Stingray > Thunderbirds
Even though both shows employ more special defects than effects.
Also, the movie soundtrack had Busted on it.

^^For being 42 years old, I think the special effects are great. Never saw the 2004 movie, but it seems awful.

Only heard about it because it was the inspiration for Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Team America.

Captain Scarlet was way better. Thunderbirds was for little fairy boys.

Thunderbirds > Captain Scarlet > Stingray

They all owned though

Also, if Captain Scarlet was indestructable, why does he try and run away from everything in the end credits?
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!

So Captain Scarlet and Stingray was made by Gerry Anderson (Thunderbirds creator) as well? I often hear those two mentioned with Thunderbirds.

Thunderbird 2 was blatantly the best, the rest were just crap and couldn't really do much, especially Thunderbrid 4, i mean a little yellow submarine? WTF? It was totally dependant on Thunderbird 2 to carry it around anyway. Bit of a downer if its not a water related mission eh TB4?

Thunderbird 2 owned. Sadly, Thunderbird 3, 4 and 5 didn't have much to do.

Thunderbird 5...

What was the point? Surely 'The Mole' should have been Thunderbird 5, so they'd then have a collection of Thunderbird transports that could conquer land, air and sea...But, no, obviously the next logical Thunderbird was a ****ing spacestation.

Disregard the fact that Thunderbird 3's space capabilities were barely ever utilised, obviously it'd make perfect sense to created another space inhabiting craft.

Gah...

+1 They should have ditched Thunderbird 4 replaced it with some sort of large Battleship or mobile water base that could also go underwater, or drop a lot of depth charges, summot like that. and then replaced 5 with, well i dont know, they dont really need it, just stick a few large satellite dishes atop of tracy island and youve saved yourself the trouble of launching a space station and maintaing it. Who ever heard of a space station crewed by one man? He must get pretty f'in lonely.

Must have been a lot of zero gravity fappage there. Just think of the mess after! No wonder no one else wanted to stay there as well.

I never really liked thunderbirds, captain scarlet or any of the others, even Team America.

The Minature specail effects looked real. Like the explosions didn't just look like plasic and polystiren (sp?) flying around. I watched this all the time when I was a wee one

I agree. Captain black was scary as hell, probably because he was supposed to be indistructable, why the hell didnt he just beat the **** of scarlett, and have done with it.

I loved it on thunderbirds when somone would reach out to grab like a chemical flask with the plastic arm, and then it cut to a real persons hand that was really hairy or somthing lol.

I think you'll find Captain Scarlet was indestrutable. I mean, that's the whole song -

Yeah, I've seen it. I don't like how they changed the designs of the crafts in the new movie. I mean, T-1 looked kinda cool, but T-2 looked so dumb, like a fat flying turtle.

Cheesy songs?

I think you'll find that they were rockets-on-strings thank you very much
And we had rather large explosions, whereas cartoon explosions are crappy

Captain scarlett was a bit crap because he was invincible.

I mean, no one dies in kids shows anyway, but they actualy told you he was invincible in the title sequence! Why was he invincible? Fate made him so!

>.> didn't stop me watching it though.


I hate the thunderbirds tracey islant toy when i was little And i loved stingray.

Thundebirds were alright.
ThunderCats was better.


For sure. Thundercats was the most memorable show from when I was a kid. However, we're talking about puppet shows here, not cartoons.

They were both indestructable if i remember rightly 'cos they had both been under control of the mysterons, except Captain Scarlet fell off that skybase thing they have, hit his head and was no longer under control, however he was still indestructable. Lucky git. And it would be no use them fighting each other because they are both indestructable.

So what Captain Scarlet should have done is thrown that shady Captain Black off the skybase too, and even if Black didnt hit his head and regain control of his own mind it still would have relieved a lot of Captain Scarlets inner frustrations about being indestructable and having a mortal enemy that is too. It would also be quite a story to tell the lads at the Spectrum christmas pi*s-up.

Captain Scarlet: 'About a year ago I threw Captain Black off skybase, man i hated him. He was a real tw*t... *remenisces* yeahh... good times!.'

Colonel White: 'Well Scarlet i call bullsh*t on that one because i saw Captain Black lurking around as he does, about a week ago... im not that drunk'
