Thunderbirds are GO! episode 7 – Trains & Celebrity Alligator Wrestling

CAW1Celebrity Alligator Wrestling anime when, this better happen in 45 years Japan!

Anyway, today’s rescue involves a runaway superconductor train in Japan, brakes won’t work, soon to bash into the nearest passenger train, you get the idea.

Since the train can’t be shut down functions are blocked from the outside after John’s attempts to turn the brakes back on, so the train needs to be manually stopped, Scott who is the only one free to attempt the rescue asks for Brains help, not just as vocal support but personal as well, Brain’s response to coming along for the rescue takes much convincing but they head off in Thunderbird 1 to stop it.

From what I remember from this episode, Brain’s was slightly annoying, sure he show’s signs of nervousness and that’s understandable but just talking all the time got real tiresome.

Another thing that’s slightly frustrated in this reboot is the side-character voice acting, for example the train driver never sound’s Japanese, instead he has a Italian wise-guy voice that sounds really out of place.

However, there was some good stuff in this episode, while I like The Hood a lot, I’m glad that he wasn’t involved in this scenario, instead the cause of it was some kind of rogue AI that John attempted on a while ago & now it’s loose.

As for the rescue, I still can’t complain about this one, so far they continue to be thrilling although I always know that everything is alright in the end, again I just feel like Brain’s ramblings made me dislike bits of the episode.

So another good episode of the reboot, next time we will be heading back to SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE.
