* HarsherInHindsight: "Terror in New York City" (in which Thunderbird 2 is shot at by an American aircraft carrier who have mistaken it for an enemy aircraft) and "Operation Crash Dive" (featuring planes that end up going off course and sinking in water due to engine malfunctions) become harsher to watch after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_MH370 Flight [=MH370=]]], where the plane went off its scheduled course and crashed into the water, the first of which is never found (and some people suggest the plane was shot down).

* RecycledInSpace: A lot of concepts were RippedFromTheHeadlines sixties tropes given a futuristic spin. For example, pirate radio ships being anchored outside national waters became pirate radio spaceships outside Earth orbit, and Concorde became Fireflash.



* HilariousInHindsight: The song "Thunderbirds are Go", which is played during the end credits of the live-action movie, contains the lyrics "don't be mad please, stop the hating". And considering how universally hated the live action movie is by fans of the TV series...

* RetroactiveRecognition: Arguably the only worthwhile aspect of the 2004 movie, for adolescent males at least, was Tin-Tin being played by a pre-''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' Vanessa Hudgens.

* MisBlamed: It wasn't Jonathan Frakes' fault the movie turned out the way it did- it was Polygram and then Universal screwing things up (see below). He and the cast were merely working with what they were given.

* BigLippedAlligatorMomnet: Just before the Russian oil-rig workers are dropped off at a hospital in San Francisco by IR, a random kid is seen arriving (with his annoyed mother) with a pan stuck on his head for some reason. [[OnlyKnownByTheirAlias He's even credited as "Panhead".]] This isn't relevant at all and he isn't seen again.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The end credits song by British boyband {{Music/Busted}} "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzqSOO6B_Fw Thunderbirds are Go]]" is one of the few things of the movie that's remembered fondly. Hans Zimmer's score was also excellent, as usual for him.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Creator/BillPaxton played his part quite well when the chips are down, and Sophia Miles and Ron Cook both delivered solid performances.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: While the redesigns themselves are deemed creative, but poor as redesigns, the Thunderbird vehicles were positively badass-looking in CGI; the oil-rig rescue and River Thames scene were also impressive.

** A lot of the [[WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine Thomas]][=/=]Thunderbirds parody clips can be this given that a voice few actors from the CGI era of Thomas have appeared in WesternAnimation/ThunderbirdsAreGo.

** "City of Fire" has the huge Thompson Tower go up in flames due to a simple accident and faulty fire-prevention equipment. Which is very reminiscent of [[The Grenfell Tower fire. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grenfell_Tower_fire]].

* NeverLiveItDown: Fans tend to give Lady Penelope a lot of flack for her [[WomanDrivers bad driving]] and her [[EekAMouse fear of mice]] despite the fact that these "faults" only appeared in one episode.
