Thunderbirds are Go 2.2 – Ghost Ship

After a moment of worry as to whether the big, abandoned, derelict ship is actually haunted or not – of course it isn’t, but that’s the fun of it – our son really got into this one. It’s a great script by Joseph Kuhr (he wrote “Chain of Command” in season one) which had us guessing whether the enemy is malicious or ever-so-slightly incompetent. There’s a delightful little hat tip to the writer of Dark Star and Alien in the name of the astronaut who needs a little help from International Rescue this week. Her name’s Captain Ridley O’Bannon.

I can’t decide whether the animators had either a complete ball or an absolute nightmare putting together all these giant metal shapes slowly tumbling around in zero gravity. It’s certainly a trip to watch.
