Check out the titles for Thunderbirds Are Go, the launch sequences to Thunderbird 1 and 2 and the introduction of Thunderbird ‘Shadow’.

The titles are quite close to the original with the countdown, love the CGI camera work on the craft, the character stills and the clips from the episode. They are a bit shorter and we missing the original’s explosion at the end.

The launch sequences are a good update on the original, particularly liked the sun beds being blown back by Thunderbird 1’s jet and the close-up of the palm trees mechanism on the Thunderbird 2 sequence.

As for Thunderbird ‘Shadow’ if seems a bit superfluous and not a particularly original design, despite what Kayo may say!

These are all clips from Thunderbirds Are Go 101/102 ‘Ring of Fire’. If you have watched the episodes your know that ‘Ring of Fire’ is not something you get if you eat too spicy a curry!
