Thunderbirds Are Go: Assholes Are Go!

Yes, Scott. I share your exasperation and embarrassment. You’re at the mercy of people who have no idea what the fuck they’re doing in this series.

What the hell is the premise behind this series?

Because this is what it seems to be: Anyone who needs rescuing is an asshole.

In this case, the Asshole of Assholes. He’s not only rich, he has fucking cheese on board:

Hey, nice message you’re sending here, “writers.” What kid with any brains wants to grow up into a future where those with societal weight are rich, smug morons?

Maybe my recollection is faulty — and I don’t have time to watch it again — but the original series didn’t leave me with the impression that the people being rescued deserved to die.

In this series, most of them do.

In the original series, technology went awry.

In this series, human beings have gone awry.

And there’s no International Rescue to save humans from their own damned stupidity.

And that stupidity is abundant in this series.

Assholes are go.

On the screen and especially behind it.

This series is absolutely shit.
