Thunderbirds 1.23 – The Duchess Assignment

I figured that there would sometimes be an episode about which I have nothing to say. This is one of those. At least Lady Penelope’s outfit is completely fab.

Daniel enjoyed it more than I thought he would. I had to walk him through some of the talky bits in the casino, explaining what roulette was and how the baddies are cheating the duchess with a rigged game, and we enjoyed the utterly irrelevant padding involving an air show demonstration of a fighter jet being able to land on a slightly larger fighter jet. Scott and Virgil break out the Mole to rescue the Duchess, which is always entertaining. Overall, though, I thought this one was pretty forgettable. Better luck next time!
