CCXL: Easter Double Feature!!!!

Sun Apr 5, 2015, 4:20 AM
You remember how MLP:FiM's Season 4 premiere and Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary happened on the same day? Well yesterday, MLP:FiM's Season 5 premiere and Thunderbirds' 50th Anniversary/the premiere of Thunderbirds Are Go had been marked on the same day! I got round to watching them both. Here are my thoughts:

Thunderbirds Are Go!
It works pretty well for the most part, if not for one thing: the pacing. Things happen much too fast. Since the original series was an hour long, it didn't have such a problem. And another thing: the whole bit with Jeff counting down every single time any Thunderbird launches got ridiculous in a hurry. I mean it was cute the first time, but after that, it was just overdoing it.
(Also - Thunderbird S? Why not Thunderbird 6? Keeping with the rest of the numbered series?)
    That aside, it was still pretty engaging and I quite like how they blended CGI with live-action sets, you know, in keeping with a hint of that old Supermarionation feel. The characters do have that kind of plastic look. Further, all of the Thunderbird vehicles are utilised, we see them all in action one way or another, around the plot, and that's a good thing. Kudos to all involved! Just... slow it down a bit.


I was expecting something a bit on the Tolkien-esque side, judging from the trailers. What I wasn't expecting was for this show to tackle something so deep-rooted as fascism! Or, if you prefer, totalitarianism or Marxism. I mean I'm all for treating everyone equally, but I don't think equality should go so far as how Starlight takes it! This show might just have taken a whole new turn: subliminal political commentary under a style people have grown to admire! ...I love it!

"Good art doesn't come from focus groups and statistics; it comes from people who share how they see things in their own unique way."
~ Doug Walker as the Nostalgia Critic

A quotation I stand behind, given what I've seen in recent memory. Nobody can force me to create something good - I do what I want when I want, and by God, I don't care if it doesn't make money, just as long as someone likes it!

I also do videos! (Mostly serious stuff)… (non-serious, sometimes controversial stuff)
