Thunderbirds Are Go Series 2: Volume 1 features 13 episodes over 2 discs, and a whopping 288 minutes of action in total. The Thunderbirds are voiced by a really good cast, including Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (The Maze Runner). David Graham retains his role of the last 60 years, as Lady Penelope's Chauffeur Parker.
The original International Rescue (not to be confused with their equally heroic Scottish namesakes) thwart evil plans and rescue the innocent using their fabulous range of high tech equipment for almost 5 hours. No longer filmed in Supermarionation, Thunderbirds Are Go is filmed using a unique mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets. Showcasing Pukeko Pictures’ and Weta Workshop’s ground-breaking technical excellence, the CGI is done incredibly respectfully.
The characters still act a little like 'puppets' and although the animated versions are capable of more than the originals, they are fairly faithful to the Sylvia and Gerry Anderson TV series of the 60's. There is plenty of daring action and all of International Rescue's emergency rescue vehicles are needed. All of the familiar characters are there, and they all still reside on Tracey Island.
In Thunderbirds Are Go Series 2 Volume 1, the FAB team investigate a scary space station in Ghost Ship, plunge to the depths of the oceans of Europa in Deep Search, and confront The Mechanic's raw power in Earthbreaker, as well as 10 more adventures.
Thunderbirds Are Go Series 2 Volume 1 is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment and is available from today - February 6 from iTunes and Amazon rrp £14.99, currently on offer from £7.
