Thunderbirds Are Go: Relic

I wasn’t going to do another post. But …

The thing about the original Thunderbirds series was that no one was an asshole.

So far, everyone — including the Tracys — is an asshole in this series.

In the original, people who needed rescuing were — by and large — capable people who had technology go awry on them.

In this series, just about everyone needing rescue should have been left to die.

Including Captain Taylor in this episode, a deranged asshole living in a Moonbase (and yes, dammit, we got it: SHADO, Alpha, and the Main Mission sound effects; spare us your irritating kiss-ass homages) six months after it’s been decommissioned.

Who the hell does he work for and why did they let him stay? He should have been carted back to Earth in a straitjacket, the mad fuck.

And all the people needing rescue have these grating nails-on-a-blackboard cartoony voices. You want them to die just so they’ll all shut the fuck up.

What they’re doing to Thunderbirds is just one degree less egregious than what was done when South Korea’s [oops!] Taiwan’s Wulin Warriors was adapted for America and had every bit of its dignity ripped out.
