Just a few weeks away from the Thunderbirds film coming out in the UK, I hear that'll have humans in it instead of puppets. Has it come out in the USA yet. Will it have the same enduring effect that the puppets had, I'll reserve judgement till I've seen it.

Hello,

It'll be out in the U.S. soon. Just saw an ad for it in the movies.

I doubt that the tv show was as big in the U.S. overall than in the U.K. Still I'm interested in seeing the movie. It looks like it will have a lot of energy.

In the original series, Lady Penelope smoked like a chimbley. For the sake of Parker's health (he has no choice but breathe the toxic effluent of her rotten, selfish habit), I will be boycotting the film.

So there.

Parker was merely working class and a vehicle for Gerry Anderson's humour; therefore it does not matter whether he dies of passive smoking or not.

Rats.

Over here in the US of A the Thunderbirds are the show team of the US Air Force. They fly F-16s which are painted with the Thunderbird design on the underneath of the airplane. I was all aflutter thinking that someone made a movie about their exploits or some such thing.

Oh, well, so much for that idea. Hope everyone enjoys the movie about the Thunderbirds, whoever they are.

A very deflated,

I was in love with Virgil for many years -I think it was the knitted jerkin he used to wear that did it-whew was he hot! Also-what does F.A.B. stand for? and what about poor John in the space station -what did he used to do for entertainment? best not ask. I did o to see a play in the West End a few year back where they wore the Thunderbird models on their heads -it was truly bizarre.,

I read somewhere that John was an improving melodionist. I cannot think of a reason why, out of all of the Tracey brothers, he was the one selected to spend years alone and isolated in a geo-stationary orbit.

"FAB" stands for er... FAB - a sixties abbreviation of Fabulous which is akin to the modern-day "Cool", used to descibe groovy things in general.

it were Virgil who did the back flip, Scott did a twizel on a wall panel and Alan just sat on a couch.

How come no one was ever in the swimming pool when Thunderbird 3 set off and how come you never saw them returning back and how did they recover the pod that had thunderbird 4 in it when it splashed into the sea.

the rolls royce was a symbol of the series and now they have ruined it with the monstrocity vehicle in it now.

furthermore, the actors are CRAP. i have seen adverts and the acting is apalling.

i saw the trailer in a cinema on friday and my fears - that the movie is going to be pants - was confirmed. They have messed around with everything - the uniforms, the design of the thunderbirds, Tracy Island, and Lady Penelopy, who has become an ass-kicking,wise-talking,no-nonsense-taking,street-fighter. Her class, style, and cool and have all but disappered.(I know I have spelt the name wrong-sorry.) Parker has been transformed into a thug. Have the makers of this tripe never seen the original? This film is going to be pants, pants, pants, pants, pants!!!! If it is not, I shall eat my own pants-after having worn them for a week!

Re musicians and puppets, anyone remember the video for Dire Straits "Calling Elvis", where they turned the musicians into Thunderbirds puppets? Don't know if they just dressed the musicians up and put strings on them, or if they used actual puppets - the former is my guess, since there's a rather good shot of the drummer "puppet" twirling a drumstick.

Graham.

PS. Pants is my guess too. Not many remakes of old shows have ever worked, and the only ones that have were the ones based on comic books.

saw the movie last night, watched the series growing up. Thought it was really well done. The ending was not so great but they kept alot of things accurate, like the sliding pool and the secrecy of the island. I thought Lady P was great. SO what if she could kick butt, she still reatined all her class.
I thought with all the remakes of shows this was the best thus far.
My 2 cents...

I just can't believe they used live actors. Do they have those jerky movements like the puppets, like they do on the "Whose Line is it Anyway" spoofs?

Now we must expect a Muppets with live actors or even a Muffin the Mule with a real mule painted up.

The possibilities are endless.

I'm somewhat concerned. Not having been a lover of the original puppets, I took my 7 year old to see it and found it as entertaining as most kids' movies (the genius that is Shrek apart). No better but not disastrously worse. Who really cares if a producer mucked about with a story about a bunch of rich vigilantes?

What does 'F.A.B.' stand for?
Nothing! Despite appearances, as used by International Rescue in Thunderbirds, 'F.A.B.' is not an acronym - it is simply a call sign like 'Roger' or 'Ten-Four' to acknowledge received instructions. At the time of the series' production, the term 'fab' was in common usage as a shortened form of 'fabulous' which, of course, everything was in the Sixties. The phrase has enjoyed a resurgence in usage in recent years and 'F.A.B.' itself entered the English dictionary for the first time in 2002:
"'F.A.B. interjection British informal an expression of agreement to, or acknowledgement of, a command [from British television series, Thunderbirds]." - Collins Dictionary (2002)
