You wonder what TBAG would have been like had Gerry been involved. Just two points to make here:
1) Gerry was NOT involved, so why speculate?
2) If we MUST speculate, then I'll guess that it would...

Well, the scribe responsible has my respect and sympathy. Hopefully they have now recovered.

I have seen maybe six episodes of TBAG and that was enough. And I speak as someone who has just...

True. Andersonic has many brilliant contributors and it could have been any one of them who wrote it. Whoever was responsible, it was spot on! And yes, you are right, some poor sod has got to sit...

True, I suppose (although I wasn't being altogether serious, it just popped into my head as I was writing).

Also, I think it should be remembered that it's unlikely that the people commissioning...

I don't think that any of us could have predicted that ITV would take the incredible decision to commission series 2 and 3 before series 1 had even aired, based upon the assumption that it would be a...

Probably. But even so, when it costs nothing of course it's going to attract people. When you have to pay, it's a different matter. Of course it's always possible that Thunderbirds Beyond the...

...there are some replicas of Cliff/Shads puppets that appear at conventions, they are complete with instruments and aren't bad, but I think that's the closest we'll get now! A shame as they must...

Yeah. It might have worked in 1992, but you just can't fill houses with Thunderbirds fans night after night now. It would cost a fortune to get this production up and running and then it would be a...

'Sacha' was a great tune and, yes, a big hit in Australia and, I think, NZ. I think it may have got to Number 1. Hank played it live on one of his solo tours, 1995 I think, and now you mention it,...

In my younger days, I spent 11 years playing the drums in various bands, mostly hard rock, but across the whole, er, spectrum of punk, pop, acoustic/electric folky stuff, metal and suchlike. The...

Oh come on.

a) What did it achieve? Why did the Hood do it? If he had wanted to 'take care of that pesky Lady Penelope' (or whatever it was he said), surely there was another way. Why not just...

Just watched it. By far the best episode of the three (although I missed half of the first one).

The unnecessary ski-copter crash seemed to add some problems later on and made little sense,...
