Thunderbirds: 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition

None January 24th, 2008


Spread out over 12 discs, the cult classic follows erstwhile astronaut Jeff Tracy and various members of his family as they operate as International Rescue, a team charged with saving kidnapped scientists, innocent citizens and sometimes the world, often because of sabotage from the villainous hood.


Sets are colorful; the stories are not. They tend to unfold at a too-leisurely pace, but still, a considerable amount of novelty remains in watching James Bond-esque feats of derring-do be undertaken by characters on strings.


Bonus documentaries show how behind-the-scenes crew brought the Tracys to life, and see old man Anderson talk about more of his favorite creations, from a career that also has included "Space: 1999" and "The Protectors."
