A brief synopsis of the latest TAG episode, 'EOS'.
This episode answers some questions posed in last week's 'Runaway' episode were a computer virus compromised the testing of a high speed train.
After examining and identifing this virus John Tracy discovers it uses sub routines he, himself has created. This week's episode sees John fight for life as the virus takes over Thunderbird 5.
Shades of 2001: A Space Odyssey in this one. The focal point of the EOS virus is a circular lense reminiscent of HAL. I was half expecting EOS to say "I can't let you do that, John!"
Another nice aspect was the feeling of John's isolation in space, especially when he is cut off from Tracy Island.
Plenty of insights into the workings of Thunderbird 5 here to, although I'm not sure I'd get used to walking across its 'glass' floors, reminds me of the glass floor at the top of Blackpool tower!
All in all I found it an enjoyable story though , less juvenile than some we've seen, although I do think it's time to start having proper rescues that are caused by something other than clichéd computer glitches and relying on techno babble to solve the endings.
