Took me a couple of episodes to forget the version from 1970s but now it's my guilty pleasure
Really hope they make a second series. Like others here the pacing holds no tension and I am sure that kids today can handle some quiet before the action hits home.
I was a little unsure of the CGI characters to start with but got used to them as well. The addition of Kayo is good, although would be nice if they can use her some more.
Really like the Thunderbird Vessel CGI, the little touch of zooming in on Thunderbird one and seeing its fins wobble...awesome
The Thunderbird two launch sequence, although good, I don't feel it matches the suspense of the original...it used to be the thing I was waiting for every episode.
Finally though, from the nostalgic goosebumps I get at the front titles, I'm hooked right until the end.
Still can't fathom why ITV didn't maintain a 5pm family slot though!
