Thunderbirds: 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition

Spread out over 12 discs, the cult classic follows erstwhile astronaut Jeff Tracy and various members of his family as they operate as International Rescue, a team charged with saving kidnapped scientists, innocent citizens and sometimes the world, often because of sabotage from the villainous hood.

 

Sets are colorful; the stories are not. They tend to unfold at a too-leisurely pace, but still, a considerable amount of novelty remains in watching James Bond-esque feats of derring-do be undertaken by characters on strings.

 

Bonus documentaries show how behind-the-scenes crew brought the Tracys to life, and see old man Anderson talk about more of his favorite creations, from a career that also has included "Space: 1999" and "The Protectors."
