Thunderbirds Synopsis

“Thunderbirds” was cool on television because it was full of puppets. Marionettes to be exact. This isn’t a new revelation, but the impending release of the theaterized version warrants that it be revisited. For as you probably know, the puppets have been replaced by Bill Paxton: Director, actor, and king of the whiny bitches.

Left behind are the phallus shaped vehicles we all went ga-ga over in the TV version. In the trailer they seem far less impressive, but after all back when it was on TV we were all impressed because the show used puppets. It was a simpler time, geeks were easier to please.

Yet you have to ask, why would anyone want to see Thunderbirds without the puppets? It isn’t as if the shows story of an incestuous rescue team is all that compelling. If I want to watch rescue work, I’ll rent Backdraft. I don’t need to see the equivalent of firemen in space.

Gigantic pink cars and flying green bathtubs are not cool. For Commander Riker’s sake, I wish they were. Yes, Frakes is directing this stringless frickasee and maybe there’s some hope that he’ll do well. I’m sick of seeing him relegated to hosting crappy episodes of “Beyond Belief”. It’d be nice to see someone besides Patrick Stewart successfully beam off he Enterprise and into the world of post-Star Trek film (Brent Spiner where did you go?).

If nothing else the film looks bright and colorful, a welcome relief towards recent cinema’s almost obsessive proclivity to dark, rainy street sets. It could be campy fun… or it could be campy crap. I’ll give Frakes a chance, even if he has cut my strings.

The most understandable of these is Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s most recognizable creation, Thunderbirds, followed by a revival of the British animated spy comedy Danger Mouse. But the most boggling is a massive episode order for an update of the color-oozing Teletubbies. I would gladly fund an illegal lithium prescription for the rare human being who is equally excited by all parts of this story.
