Originally yes, but I'm interested in spin-offs etc. I do however have concerns on shows that were thought of by GA, but are being developed years after with no input. I wonder how much of the original input is there as opposed to someone else's vision and trading on the name.

That may sound contradictory, but I do enjoy TAG, in the same way I enjoy the Star Trek franchise and Battlestar Galactica reboot etc. They are essentially the same format, but a slightly different spin.

Look at them in that light and you can enjoy them. If you over analyse then you will inevitably not enjoy.

Taking a musical analogy, I can't play an instrument, but I have been concerts where friends who do play, have analysed the way the bass player has fingered the fret, while I have just enjoyed the performance.I think I got more out of it, and probably do with TAG, as I watch it as a separate entity.

True, except title and character names...

...and:

Entire Premise
Similar Plots
Tracy Island
London Agents and their setup.
Launch sequences
Purpose and general design of vehicles
Role of main characters
Theme music and reused original music.
David Graham voicing Parker and guest roles
Sylvia and Matt voicing guest roles.
and basically: Every. Other. Thing. In. The. Series.

But beyond that, there is literally no similarity. Like none. Ziltch. Don't even go looking for any, 'cause brother you'd be out of luck, boy howdy, that'd be a true hidin' to nowhere. You might as well try and lower the Atlantic as get any other similarities. Why even try? Ain't none to be found! Like fishing in a desert or building a sandcastle on the sea, you'd be wasting your time.

It is NOT an Anderson show. It really is that simple.
Your clutching at straws suggestions could almost be equally aimed at Paw Patrol which also has a similar basic idea. Should we feature that in FAB too?
What about Peppa Pig? David Graham does voices in that too.

If this was a Thunderbirds fan club then even as a remake it would deserve some space. But it's not. Its the Anderson fanclub and we pay almost £10 an issue to read about the work of Gerry Anderson - not something an ITV exec thought would be a cash cow as they owned the rights to Gerrys shows

A lot of that could be said about Turbo Charged Thunderbirds too though, and Iím confident not many of us want to see anything about that.
