The Joy of Sets: When Heath Ledger Roared and Thunderbirds Soared!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s...Supermarionation!Yes, yes, childrens, the weirdest show we all totally dig now is out in a brand spanking new set and I, for one, am both thrilled and a little bit ascared. See, when I was a kid, I remember stumbling upon repeats of Thunderbirds, the 1965 oddity from Space: 1999 guru Gerry Anderson, and thinking ‘oh my sweet holy shizz, what on God's green Earth are those?!’Puppets.

Question: Mr. Televisionary, you're my only hope! I know that once before you answered a question about a song played during a show. (See? I do read your column avidly!) But you wouldn't give up your sources for finding out this info, so here I am asking for your help!

Answer: Oh, Lynne — once before? Surely, an avid reader such as yourself knows that I'm a sucker for these "What was that song?" questions and that I answer them quite frequently. But who am I to doubt you? Thanks for your readership just the same.

I believe the song that's making you so darned miserable is Joe 90's "Drive," which is on the album Dream This. It played while Nate ( read more

Premise: An eccentric millionaire and his five sons make up an international rescue team who use a Thunderbird spacecraft to come to the aid of those in dire situations. The British sci-fi series, set in 2065, was the most popular of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's `supermarionation' adventures and their first hourlong show. It spawned two feature films, `Thunderbirds Are Go' (1966) and `Thunderbird 6' (1968), as well as a 2004 live-action version.
