This week the Security Hazard blog has put together a video where we build and fly some classic vehicles from the Gerry Anderson canon in a game called Kerbal Space Program. In true Thunderbirds style, some of them crash and explode a bit too…
Actor Robert Vaughn, best known in Gerry Anderson circles as the star of The Protectors, passed away on Friday, aged 83. He had been suffering from leukaemia for a short time and was surrounded by his family when he died.
For those of you that don’t know, every week I have been writing in-depth reviews of each episode of the original Thunderbirds series. During these reviews I have been closely studying what appears on screen and highlighting bits and pieces which point to how the episode was produced, and which parts worked well or didn’t work so well. Part of that process has involved analysing one aspect in particular which relates to the first eleven episodes to go into production.
So with Karanti on the run, Christoph disappearing to get a haircut, John completely recovered from falling off a light fixture, and Julie still completely incapable of doing anything, what will happen in the thrilling conclusion of Gerry Anderson’s lost pilot film from 1973, The Investigator?
“This is the voice of Lew Grade, from a galaxy a million lightyears away – we have observed the cancellation of the The Secret Service and would strongly suggest you don’t try this live-action/Supermarionation crossover thing again. Gerry Anderson has selected an earth boy and girl to star in another one though. Through John and Julie he’s going to make a really bizarre pilot episode which won’t make your world a better place.”
Welcome to my first post here on Security Hazard! Here’s one to share with your fellow Gerry Anderson fans. A series of questions all about what you love about the Gerry Anderson universe – and some things you’re not so keen on. More in-depth articles are coming soon with reviews, reports and general musings, but this is just a chance for you to get to know me, and perhaps have a guess at what you can expect to see on this blog. These are my favourites or least favourites rather than what I consider best or worst as they’re not always the same thing.
