2020 has proven to be about as much fun as one of Doctor Fawn’s lectures on the physiology of the lower primates. This year has been a bumpy one for us at Security Hazard HQ, with the full spectrum of life’s problems filing along one after another, like an endless conveyor belt of Thunderbird 2’s pods… except each pod contained disappointment and a lingering sense of dread, rather than something fun like the Mole or the D.O.M.O.
Watch your eardrums everybody. The follow-up to my Every F.A.B. In Thunderbirds video is finally here, but this time it was impossible to keep count because of the explosive circumstances. The world of Thunderbirds is full of things that go whizz, bang, pop and everything in between. I thought it would be awfully fun to compile all of those terrific explosions into one handy video. I didn’t realise it would be quite this long – but I should have known better.
For Gerry Anderson fans who are stuck indoors and looking for a little bit of extra entertainment and chat about their favourite TV shows, I’m trying something new. With no plan or agenda, Jack Knoll (one half of the Operation Anderthon podcast, and some Thunderbirds reviews that go on a bit) will be streaming live on the Security Hazard Facebook page on Monday, March 23rd at 5:00 pm GMT for the first time.
One of the key purposes of a pilot episode is to answer questions that viewers (and financiers) may have about the format of the series. It can set up a few mysteries to engage the viewers for the rest of the series, but for the most part, a pilot should intelligently impart exposition through an exciting and intriguing plot. The Investigator, Gerry Anderson’s 1973 return to mixing Supermarionation with live action, has baffled fans for years. It’s a bizarre concept filmed in an equally bizarre way. We previously reviewed the film in full and essentially concluded that it raises more questions than it answers.
The Security Hazard team have been hard at work to bring you something special this Christmas. Have you ever thought that there might be a likeness between the classic literary figure of Ebenezer Scrooge, and evil alien android Zelda from Terrahawks? Well wonder no more as we bring you a specially written and performed Terrahawks Christmas special which puts a Terrahawks spin on the famous Dickens tale of A Christmas Carol.
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the indestructible Captain Scarlet, every Friday on the Security Hazard blog throughout the month of September we will be reviewing your favourite episodes of the classic Supermarionation series.
