Because I don't pay as much attention as I should to TV news, I only learned today that a new series of Thunderbirds episodes launches on Saturday evening on Britain's ITV. It's CGI animated, of course, not puppets like the original, but the sole review I've seen suggests that it might be worth watching. First series will be 26 half-hour episodes with a second series already confirmed. Cast looks much the same as in the original, as do the vehicles, except that it looks like FAB 1 can fly, and that there is at least one new action-orientated female character.

Annoyingly I'm away from home on Saturday, at Eastercon, and may not get to watch it for a couple of days. Really must remember to set up the recorder...
