THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO THEMED WEB SEARCH

It is an adaptation of the original 1960's Thunderbirds series which was created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. The series premiered in the UK on the 4 April 2015. Both the characters and Thunderbirds from the original series were given revamped looks to them, including Tracy Island, to fit in with more modern times since the 1960s, while retaining notable aspects from the original series for the adaptation. The premiere revealed that, along with the original five craft, a new Thunderbird craft was also made; Thunderbird 'Shadow' (aka Thunderbird 'S') to be piloted by Kayo, the head of the organisation's security.

The first series currently have 13 episodes, each about twenty minutes in length. On 18 December 2014, it was announced that the show will have a second series that would air "over 2016 and 2017".

Production of each episode for the revamp differs completely from that of the original series. Since the show uses CGI instead of puppets for the character creating each episode required a different approach, although hand-made live action model sets are still used. Production begins with the sets, in which the film crew have to devise the camera setups for the scenes to match with the movement and positions of the CGI characters and craft that would be later imposed upon the filmed footage. This includes any manipulation of the scene to match movements made by CGI characters or craft, such as a character opening a door, or objects being displaced by a thruster, and any special effects used on the set, such as smoke and wind. The sets were designed with a similar method to the original series, including using household objects. For example, the Thunderbird 1 bay of the original series included an orange hand juicer as part of it, and the revamp did the same thing with its version of the bay.

Because the characters and crafts are created in CGI, greater flexibility is given in regards to movement and detail, and more so with characters as fluid motion can be provided for greater movement, expressions and reactions; this means that CGI characters in the revamp can do much more than their former puppet counterparts, including running, jumping and climbing, amongst other flexible actions. All of the CGI sequences that are imposed on the footage created by filming the model set, is first done on paper to detail the sequence, and then with computers formatting the models and the layout of the sequence. Details are then included, such as characters costumes, craft setup, and are made to follow very closely to the camera layout and movement of set props (such as when Thunderbird 2 is raised into launch position, for example).

The music for the show was given a modern take, with more flair for the dramatic and for greater suspense and excitement to coincide with the revamp, but with many nods to the original composition that was used, including a revamped composition of the original theme tune.

Fans and critics reacted very positively to the new series, despite some negative reactions from fans of the original version claiming the show was clearly made to attract a new generation of fans instead of appealing to nostalgia. However ITV's decision to air episodes at 8 am BST (other than the pilot, which aired at 5 pm) sparked a negative fan reaction and was criticized by journalists too, claiming that moving it from the original episode's 5 pm slot would alienate the adult viewership it gained from the first episode, with many also feeling the series could match the success of the BBC revival of Doctor Who in 2005 if kept at its 5 pm slot. Thunderbirds Are Go currently has an 8.6 rating on tv.com and 6.8 on IMDB.
