If you’ve never seen Gerry Anderson’s Terrahawks series from the 80’s, here is your chance! FREE from 10th December 2014 to 10th January 2015, this Christmas episode can be watched on Youtube, complete with some awesome extras. I won’t spoil it for you here, just be sure to watch the commercial breaks!
Terrahawks was a childhood favourite for me so it’s great to see that the brand lives on. A new series of audio adventures start in April 2015 thanks to Big Finish and the Gerry Anderson Youtube Channel is getting ready to host new content such as a Zeroids vs Cubes web series! Exciting times if your favourite Zelda isn’t of the Nintendo variety!
As a young boy I was very fortunate to live in a world where the many creations of Gerry Andersons were frequently on TV. Stingray, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and Joe 90 were all favourites that I would watch at every opportunity. If you watched any of Anderson’s works, you would almost certainly see the word “Supermationation” at the start, a sure sign that you were about to see something special!
If you love Supermarionation as much as I do, you’re sure to love new documentary “Filmed in Supermationation“. There’s a short review over at SFX which gives it 4 stars out of 5, and thanks to that website, here is a really cool infographic about the FAB puppets:
This short preview of the documentary has Parker asking about the meaning of life!
Ever wonder what it would have been like if Gerry Anderson directed films for Hammer? Me either, but apparently Kevin McTurk did because he is working on what has to be one of the singular coolest things ol’ XIII has ever laid his eerie eyes upon; The Mill At Calder’s End! But enough chit-chat, just check out this teaser now!!!
Hey creeps, remember that time that Gerry Anderson manifested one of his amazing marionettes as a real life girl, and then had her sing pop ditties about one of his other shows that actually took place after the show said character was from? Well, even if you don’t here’s Kate Kestrel (from Terrahawks, which was set in 2020) singing S.O.S., which seems to directly reference Thunderbirds (which took place in 2065)!
p.s. Why is that “S.O.S.” overlay covering the entire video marking it like a digital Hester Prynne?
