Great modernisation for all the family

A brilliant modern take on the original series, with ongoing threads through the series, exciting episodes, strong role models - both male and female, and none of the anachronistic parts of the original series (like smoking), appealing to both adults and kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (4 ):

The show, which uses a mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets, has a fresh new style when compared with the pretty dated original puppets. However, the Tracy boys are easily recognizable and true to their original personalities and characteristics. The stories are layered so both young and old can enjoy the story and action, which occur in each episode of Thunderbirds Are Go without too much explanation.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
