I was never much of a Thunderbirds guy myself, but color me surprised that they're going the CG route. If anything, I would have thought the likes of TEAM AMERICA would have paved the way for folks to eat up some delicious marionette-on-marionette action. There's a sense of nostalgia that goes along with it, but as they say, times are a changin'. At the end of the day, it couldn't be worse than the Bill Paxton movie, right?

Thunderbirds Are Go will air sometime this spring.

Sorry, but the strings were part of the love I have for this show

The show wasn't all that great, so cutting the strings leaves little to be desired.

You know I have no feelings one way of the other but seeing those guys I just, well, I just want to punch them in their faces for some reason.

Aren't those over the shoulder utility belts kinda large or may be it's the vibrant colours on them that make them so :o) Should have gone with the grey used on the first one from the left though I suspect the colours used are some sort of nod to the original show. On the CGI, I think most cartoon shows are going this way - it certainly didn't harm Iron Man Armored Adventures. If it gets anywhere near that in terms of stories, it'll be doing well.

Pretty creepy looking. Could still be a good show, and hopefully better than the live-action movie.

Well they look somewhat horrifying don't they? Is the market children? I could imagine they're the only group who wouldn't be creeped out.
