It’s hard to believe the first season finale was June of last year. I am, so far, alive to see the start of the second season — if I last until tomorrow, which is when I’ll get to watch.

Supermarionation Forever

supermtitle1-small

Stand by for Action!

We’re thrilled to announce that Network has completed a major new feature film about the work of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, ‘Filmed in Supermarionation’. This is the definitive documentary about the unique puppetry and animation technique developed by Gerry and Sylvia and their team and utilised in all their programmes throughout the 1960s including ‘Stingray’, ‘Captain Scarlet’ and, most famously, ‘Thunderbirds’.

Directed and co-produced by Stephen La Riviere and hosted by Lady Penelope and Parker themselves, ‘Filmed in Supermarionation’ is a screen adaptation of his book of the same name and features a wealth of previously unseen archive footage, brand new interviews with the surviving casts and crews and clips from the shows themselves. A highlight of the film are ingenious and accurate recreations of the pioneering techniques used in the productions.

Just when I think we’ve seen all there is to see about the productions of Gerry & Sylvia Anderson, Stephen La Riviere comes along with a big box of surprises!

See two clips after the break.

An Evening in New York with “The Blacklist”

Live webcast. I think open to all:

It begins 8PM EDST tonight. Update: For Members Only. Why did they promote this to the general public too? PR FAIL.

Second update: Looks like it will be open to all.
