    What is your favourite Gerry Anderson show?

    Mine is UFO. Gabrielle Drake in a purple wig and tight shorts did strange things to my teenage loins.

    Thunderbirds a clear favourite for me. Watched it religiously as a kid, and have every episode on DVD. Enjoyed Captain Scarlett a fair bit too, and Stingray to a lesser extent. But they didn't have the same sense of awe and enjoyment of Thunderbirds. Never really saw enough of Joe 90 to really get into it, but what I did see didn't really enthuse me.

    Never seen any of the others, but Sledger Snr reliably informs me that Fireball XL5 is rather good.

    AWTA.

    I was a massive Thunderbirds fan as a kid. My father then later introduced me to UFO - "It's so bad it's almost kinda good", but I wasn't nearly as much of a fan.

    I'm watching Thunderbirds right now. All of the episodes are on youtube. Ah, the nostalgia.

    The theme music of Fireball XL-5 is just great though, I have realised.

    Not as great as Thunderbirds' mind you.

    Thunderbirds also had Cliff Richards as a guest star, which was weird.

    The song was the best thing about it.

    Unless you wish to permanently sour a lot of fond memories, I urge you to refrain from ever watching that "film". Gerry Anderson calling it a "disgrace" was a massive understatement.

    Edit: he also apparently said "it was the biggest load of crap I have ever seen in my life," sentiments which I find it hard not to endorse.

    Thunderbirds - featured an England opening batsman - what's not to love?
