For definite, if you made a modern, maybe-CGI, straighter version of Terrahawks with a fair budget (which it never had) without the irritating bits and kept the monsters scary rather than supposedly comic, it would be spectacular. You could just do it again exactly the same; practically no changes to hardware, characters or setup; just higher production values, and it would be totally brilliant as a western 21st century sci-fi.Some of the scenes looked great but most of them really didn't look like a 10-15-year-after successor to Thunderbirds.I mean there were really funny bits in Terrahawks that were well worth keeping like the agro between that fellow in charge and his robots. (Did you notice how he was just like Captain Archer from Star Trek Enterprise; like the worst leader or Captain ever?). Zero was a brilliant character because he wasn't played entirely straight and the same was true for Zelda as well when she described the humans or dressed-down the other aliens.You could really tone-down the rest and be left with a really spectacular show.The ideas were great after all; the vortex with the plane launching up through it, (that plane itself was one of the best and most undervalued designs in an Anderson show).The Zeroids and the huge space gunship that they manned were well deserving of a second outing and the battletank is probably my favourite ground vehicle ever - for some reason.The Treehawk (apart from its name) was a great little ship too. It was as though, if they'd changed little things, it would have been awesome.And then in later series they were going to introduce new ships like a supercharged Battlehawk to replace the original and they also had great concept ships that never made it to the show proper but the unforced errors closed the show down early.... Actually, I got the Stingray DVDs last year and watched the whole lot - a few episodes a day - and it had aged really well.People said "oh, don't get it because it'll not meet up to your memories of it". BS.It was absolutely superb, I really[/] enjoyed it - another underrated show because it was after XL5 and like a pathfinder for Thunderbirds.
Dream big and bold and daring.
