still_guns : I prefer the newer, CGI rendition of this show... Said no-one ever

Kelvin Mulder : I watched this as a kid and had the toys. Such an epic and genius show. Sad they do not make them like this anymore. cheers from the Netherlands.

Johnno9989 : No matter how many times I've seen the vehicles launch, it never gets boring.

I blew up The toilet : Thunderbird 2 for me when I was younger was the coolest lol

eikcid : I have a big LOVE for the thunderbirds :-) The music is "FAB" ;-)

DrPepper22222 : What's cool about the TB3 landing back in the roundhouse vertically was that would be completely unthinkable in reality when this was all designed. But now in 2015 that has pretty much now been achieved by SpaceX for the first time. So maybe it wasn't so sci-fi after all.

dave yyc : i keep wondering how many kids were inspired by this series to become engineers, pilots, artists or even musicians.

James Martin : Like a lot of Gerry and Sylvia stuff, the insanely long, intricate and convoluted launch sequences on the Thunderbirds made no damn sense, but they were so much fun to watch, you didn't care.

bigdmac33 : What HD REALLY shows is the fantastic detail in the sets that Meddings and the crew painstakingly achieved. Pure craftsmanship!

Lars Balk : how can someone dislike this!! this is awsome old school thunderbirds

rideyourbikent : I'm 55 yrs old and I still want to be the pilot of Thunderbird 2 , best job in the world .

Tony Mcmahon : Would it have killed them lazy bastards to walk to the aircraft.

MJ Knight : Thunderbird 2. Everyone's fave

Daniel M : It still amazes me how superb this was filmed back in the 60's, no CGI at all..

Carl B : Watching Thunderbirds as a child, I just loved the stories. As an adult, I can see that it's among the most imaginative and technically accomplished children's TV series ever made.

EverChangingShadow : I just noticed, when Alan says "take up launch positions" his tone is like "this is my ship, I'm in charge here" and then Scott goes "FAB" in this "Ooooh get you" tone of voice. lol

56postoffice : At the time this was the most expensive show to be made. The music here is brilliant.

Tessa Bakker : It would be beyond otherworldly if we someday had a real Thunderbird 2. Imagine that green behemoth taxiing to the runway on an actual airport! The crowd *that* would draw would be amazing. If only it could be real. Of course we'd need assurance that Thunderbird 2 is realistically capable of flight, and then have to find a runway that could *handle* that kind of power, and supply a long enough ramp from which it could launch...

spartacus3111 : When did TB1 rotate on its way down the ramp? Why didn't they plant the trees a bit further apart? How does the new chair fit in the same hole?

Julinda Otto : CGではできない臨場感がいい

KlunkerRider : As a kid I never noticed how Thunderbird 3's scale constantly changed, when boarding at 7:00 its apparently the size of the Queen Mary based on how tiny the puppets are, yet at launch its suddenly tiny, small enough to fit thru the eye of whats clearly a two story house, just look at the stairway for scale at 8:00, but its does still look cool doing so and I'm sure for the Anderson's that was more important. ;-)

Roger Breton : I love the music Barry Gray has created for this series. Without the music and all the other rich sound effects, the visual experience would not be the same.

The Ravaloxian Whovian : Old series or new. I just love Thunderbirds. Especially 3. Cause Thunderbird 3 is epic!

Jeremy Williams : Thunderbird 3 docking with Thunderbird 5 is always a nice scene.

ElekTr1C : TB1 magically turns when it goes down :D

Tracy Gibson : tis is a great use of human skill for the more wholesome entertainment of all our youth.

Simon Atack : Barry Gray's music score for this series made it what it is. Absolutely perfect. And the new CGI version has missed the vital points of what made this series so endearing. And enduring. Gerry Anderson's original looks realistic, even with strings. The vehicles move and fly in a natural realtime sense. It was made with love by modelmaking craftsmen and women.

BakedBeanz 77 : Anyone notice that the roundhouse that Thunderbird 3 flies out of looks sort of similar to Thunderbird 5?

Cameron McGarel : On the tb3 launch Virgil looks down as if hey where's my sofa gone

James Farrell : There is something so majestic about TB2 at 5:30

noel prest : Thunderbird 2 is so cool

je naam : When I was just a lil' kid used to watch a "puppet" show about a submarine which ussed to scare the hell ot of me... Does anyone out there knows the name of that "sub."-show ? Please do tell me (I'm still a bit of a kid after all these years) Thanx...

Vassiliki Dimou : The Definition is too High. It undoes Meddings' work. You can see the size of the models too easily. These shows were made for cathode ray tube TV resolution. Thank god I still have one; on those screens the sense of realism is far greater.

iwksu tdhj : 1番インパクトがあったのはサンダーバード2号

Bainsworth : that fecker virgil is the laziest....see him get in that conveyor belt, then his uniform arrives pressed from a drawer...that fecker virgil

BearCubster : Incredible!

Barrie Wright : Just puer genius, and for me as a 56 year old, man just a good place in my child hood, never missed a single show, when it was due to come on everything just stopped. These kind of films "Super marrieanet" they couldn't make these today the cost would be just to high, and it looks better than CGI, actually, but that's my point of view. FAB :)

Markyboy No1 : Outstanding !!! Cheer's for sharing. Watched everyone of them when i was kid. Gerry Anderson commented years after, they did not make 'childrens films' but 'films for children'........ big difference....After watching this i'll be buying the box set !!!

Jorge Inacio : muito. Bom. Época. da minha. infância

Infinite Flight Aviation Experts : TB3 just pulled a SpaceX

Matthijs Coule : What i always liked was the silence in the tb3 hangar When alan pushes the button at 7:44 and then suddenly boom !!!

harryd bennett : For those of us over 60 we tend to remember the original Thunderbirds;  just might have been what motivated our generation into space...

Ron Owen : Tracy Island must be completely hollowed out, looking at the size of those launch bays and equipment halls !!!

Curtis Biel : MAN! That is one awkward silence on the couch.

robert pearce : scott and alan changed places on the chair on the way down to TB3.. then back again when they went up into it....

Gilson Oi : Essa serie marcou minha infancia.

DEC0920 Jun4 : どうあがいてもamericaさんには軍事力が勝るんで、日本みたいなちっぽけな孤島の国が勝てる筈がない。マッカーサーの時代に解っている筈ってな感じ🎶にしても格好いいな💞

吉田源氏 : 5:30のシーンが一番大好きです。BGMも最高。

Doofus Rufus : F.A.B. is my BDSM safe word. ;)

Rotate Aviation : This is brilliant tv. As a 21 year old who had the hallowed Tracey Island play set, all the toys, costumes, wallets etc, I loved this. And they don’t make them like they used to. But a couple of points came to my mind watching this: 1) imagine them going to a swinger’s party and the keys to one of those doozies came out the bowl... 2) I always feel sorry for Gordon. Never really saw any action 3) what did John do to end up banished to TB5? That’s rough duty...
