    Are there really no Thunderbirds fans out there? These forums are dead. I know the show was cancelled ages ago but you can't just forget about a classic show likes TBs.

    Note: The New movie made in like 2004 sucked really bad.

    I've been a T-Birds fan since '04. And yes, the 2004 movie did suck more than a Hoover in a wormhole.

    My mom got me into Thunderbirds in '96. I actually asked for my money back after I saw the abomination Jonathan Frakes made.

    I'm sure I pissed off half the theatre complaining about it. Ugh, what did they do to TB2

    I hope somebody picks it up and starts it up again, just like they did with Doctor Who. I wouldn't be against a new series starring real people but as logn as they stick 100% to the original, no 'modern' additions/modifications. Do it like the classic series and they'd be in for business.

    Thanks The movie was good, but i've excpeted more from it. Anway i've hear that Gerry Anderson is trying to get his rights back for  a re-make Thunderbirds. I hope it are dolls or that new program they have. (Don't know how it called again) It's cool how they re-made Captain Sacrket even when i never seen the show lol !

    I've only seen a few episodes of the original Captain Scarlet but quite a few of Anderson's other show, Fireball XLR Somebody start an online petition for the new Thunderbirds and send it to Gerry.

    I didn't think much of the Thunderbirds movie or the new computer generated Captain Scarlett but I've seen the original puppet versions and love them to pieces

    Seriously?! Maybe it could actually work, unlike the unfinished computer-generated pilot that didn't work out so well.

    Maybe, i've been hearing more rumours around that Carlton want to help Anderson, but Grandad (or something like that) isn't intresed

    Whoo! Thunderbirds was great when I watched it around 12 years ago! I've recently considered watching the series again (despite it now being a bit cheesy) and thought I'd see if anybody still likes it.

    Nice work on sticking by Thunderbirds guys!

    I've been a fan of Thunderbirds since its first UK Network showing on BBC 2 in 1991. I have the loads of Videos and DVDs of the programme.

    I'm a huge Thunderbirds fan, and I wasn't even alive in the years it was being aired for the first time. I've been watching this show since I was 3 years old and I'm still completely in love with it today. I've got all the episodes and the feature films on DVD now.

    I watched the shows in reruns in 1969-1973 or thereabouts. It was on Channel 11 (WPIX) I think here in NYC. All my friends used to watch it. We would play pretend games in theschoolyard at lunch time revolving around the Thunderbirds. It looks campy now, but I remember it and broke down and bought the series on DVD. Ahead of it's time if you ask me.
