Pretty good, definitely for kids. Animation keeps with the original marionette version, complete with unrealistic mouth movement -- should dub well to other languages. Would be more engaging if they updated the rescue crew as truly international, with a multiracial rescue team. Other races are stereotyped: an IT guy with a stutter, and a limo driver. Important rescue duties are limited to caucasians. If other races appear, they're being rescued by white characters -- or they're the villains.

Giving this a go. Not a huge fan of the original.

It's not for me. It's aimed at children, and to me looks like just another animation. It misses the quirky humour (and supermarionation) of the original, and so is easier to just move on from. This is shown well by the number of people on trakt who have been watching the series - every episode has just a few less fewers, resulting in 66% of viewers dropping off over a season. If you are Thunderbirds fan, and survived the Thunderbird movie - this is even worse. It has most of the same characters of the real thing, and lots of whizzy machinery. But no soul.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
