This week the boys and I have been taking part in the Thunderbirds Are Go Blogger Mission.
Our first mission was an easy one – to enjoy all of the Thunderbirds Are Go episodes on the new series one DVD.
Firstly Jacob was a bit sceptical about watching Thunderbirds Are Go with me, after I told him that I used to watch the original Thunderbirds when I was growing up. I think he thought it was going to be very old and boring, but he was so hooked on the new CGI look.
All the old favourites are there like the Tracy brothers, Brains, Lady Penelope and Parker, but the new cartoon look brings everything bang up to date.
As part of the Thunderbirds Are Go Blogger mission I asked the boys to answer a few questions about the series.
- Favourite character?
Thomas: Gordon Tracy. I think he looks a bit like me, and he’s loud like me too.
Jacob: I like Brains, as he’s always building things and inventing stuff.
- Favourite craft?
Thomas: I’m going to say Thunderbird 4 as it’s Gordon’s, and it goes underwater.
Jacob: I loved the Bullet Train from the Runaway episode. It goes so fast, and mum said she went on a bullet train in Japan.
- Favourite episode and why?
Thomas: I liked Slingshot as it’s in space with Asteroids and the Solar Flare
Jacob: Fireflash – Brains supersonic jet is really cool
- What would you like to see happen next in the series?
Thomas: Another Space episode, maybe a bomb on the International Space Station. Perhaps even The Hood fakes his way as an astronaut and plants it himself.
Jacob: It’d be cool if Brains invented some kind of mega gun and The Hood tried to steal it
- Would you like to see more of a certain character?
Thomas: I like Max, Brains’s robot helper. He’s cute.
Jacob: Yeah I like Max too.
- What character are you most like?
Thomas: Gordon. He likes water like me, and he’s funny.
Jacob: My mum says i’m like Brains as i’m always building gadgets and things with my Lego
- Is your mum/dad like any of the Thunderbirds Are Go characters?
Thomas: Think mum would like to be Kayo, but she’s more like Grandma
Jacob: Dad’s the oldest so he can be Scott
Thanks boys for your help (I think?)
The DVD is released in shops on 22nd June 2015, and you can pre-order it now from Amazon, or download the episodes from iTunes.
