here, with my personal look into what I think is the best marionette series of all time!
Thunderbirds was an interesting little television series, although I've only been recently introduced to it a few years ago. I thought it was fantastic, stupendous, and... dare I say... F.A.B.!
I've seen other review which state that the puppets were either the blah point
of the series, or a disasterous decision on the Anderson's behalf
. Well, I never have either of those feelings; it's almost as if I've been teleported to another world whenever I watch the marionettes in action, a world where it's acceptable
that a man made of plastic, wood, and glass can live a stringed life
. Uncanny Valley
rarely effects me when I watch the show, indeed many of the puppets are not only interesting to look at, but I've developed a crush on a few of them, especially Tracy brother Scott
, who looks like the young Sean Connery
to love?). I love Supermarionation
with all my heart, and would love to thank the Andersons for pioneering it, even if they weren't quite willing to do so in the first place
