  • I like episodes like this one, a sort of "greatest hits". You get to see all your favourite bits and for the new viewer it gives a good idea of what the series is all about.moreless

    You can really get an idea of how International Rescue works, as well as putting yourself in the shoes of the young stowaway. It brought back many childhood memories and spurred me on to rewatch more of this classic serial. Even now the special effects stand up and the plot is much better than what passes for kid's sci fi today. I would heartily recommend this to science fiction buffs of all ages. If you watch Thunderbirds and like it do please try Captain Scarlett, Stingray and other Gerry Anderson productions, I'm sure you will not be disappointed. Happy Viewing.

    This episode was clever, filled up with little bits of other episodes can often make a show seem lazy, having a 'filler' before the big finale. But this episode is so well done you don't really realise that.



    I like the way even when being told to keep an eye on Chip and not to tell him anything Chip still has a way of getting everyone to talk, even the stout Jeff. It shows that kids have a way of getting people to talk and that childhood innocence is something that should be cherished.



    The ending, with Chip thinking the whole experience is a dream is slightly surreal but on the whole belivable.



    A very good episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Featured Equipment:
      Thunderbirds 1, 2, 3, 4, Sun Probe, Fireflash, Mars Probe rocket

    • Once inside the hangar, Thunderbird 2 unloads Pod 1 but the numeral on the puppet-sized pod door in the close-up shots is a different font of that to the one on the model pod seen in long-shot.

    • When Thunderbird 2 returns to its hangar, smoke can be seen flowing back down into units inside the hangar. This is because that scene is simply reversed footage of the regular Thunderbird 2 launch sequence. The same thing appears again in Ricochet.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Chip: I liked Virgil - he told me all about Thunderbird 2.
      Alan: Oh, he did, did he? Well, he shouldn't have! I'll tell you something, young fella - you'll get nothing out of me about Thunderbird 3!
      Chip: So you're the pilot of Thunderbird 3?
      Alan: (reluctantly): Yeah...I'm the pilot of Thunderbird 3.

  • NOTES (3)

    • John, Parker, Kyrano and Grandma don't appear in this episode. Lady Penelope and Tin-Tin are only seen in the flashback material.

    • This is the last episode to feature David Holliday's voice of Virgil. Some sources say Holliday left because he had to return to America while others say he demanded more money.

    • This episode features flashbacks from "End of the Road," "Sun Probe," "Trapped in the Sky" and "Day of Disaster." These episodes were chosen as they had originally been filmed or scripted as 25-minute episodes.
