Without giving too much away, this latest TAG episode Crosscut is , to my mind a better episode than last weeks, Space Race.
It features Thunderbird 1 & 2 and almost a cameo of the Mole. The intriguing thing about the Mole is Virgil has to assemble it inside the Pod, prior to the 'rescue'. Later in the episode we see another Pod vehicle which seems to use similar components to the Mole. Are the Pod vehicles mix and match I wonder.
I am getting a little more used to the look of the show and some of the model sets are looking better than previously seen, but those deliberate out of focus depth of field shots are still grating to me.
Although I'm trying not to, I do find myself comparing it to the classic series. John in Thunderbird 5 just seems to spend his time monitoring the Earth and looking for potential problems. Do traditionally authorities not bother? I'm still waiting for someone to just call International Rescue on his or her mobile phone and say I'm in a fix , please rescue me!
