Giving this a go. Not a huge fan of the original.

It's not for me. It's aimed at children, and to me looks like just another animation. It misses the quirky humour (and supermarionation) of the original, and so is easier to just move on from. This is shown well by the number of people on trakt who have been watching the series - every episode has just a few less fewers, resulting in 66% of viewers dropping off over a season.

If you are Thunderbirds fan, and survived the Thunderbird movie - this is even worse. It has most of the same characters of the real thing, and lots of whizzy machinery. But no soul.

Pretty good, definitely for kids. Animation keeps with the original marionette version, complete with unrealistic mouth movement -- should dub well to other languages.

Would be more engaging if they updated the rescue crew as truly international, with a multiracial rescue team. Other races are stereotyped: an IT guy with a stutter, and a limo driver. Important rescue duties are limited to caucasians. If other races appear, they're being rescued by white characters -- or they're the villains.
