Here's Chris's story of how she found Thunderbirds:
The first time I
ever saw Thunderbirds was when I was 14 years
old. My family used to rent videos once a week from the
Blockbuster Video that was 40 miles away from our tiny
town in Iowa (insert violins here). One time my father
chose some movie I'd never heard of called
Thunderbirds Are Go. I distinctly recall this first
exposure to Thunderbirds. It was just the two of
us watching in the den, and, to put it plainly, I was
I was, admittedly,
mesmerized by these marionettes. What horrified me was the
fact that they could bleed. (If you've seen TBAG,
you know what scene I'm talking about.) I'm like...but they're
not alive...how can they bleed?
I ended up watching it
Seventeen years later, I
happened to be sitting here at home on my couch one weekend,
flipping through the program guide on the TV, desperate to
find something even remotely interesting to watch. I happened
upon Tech TV, and saw the title Thunderbirds. I
thought, No...it couldn't be the same thing as that movie.
But it was. I recognized the characters...but only at that
moment did I realize they had not just been that movie my
father and I had watched - they had been a television show as
I was hooked from that
first episode I watched. Again, mesmerized. But this time, not
so horrified. And when I finally bought TBAG about a
month after finding the show, I was stunned to discover I
remembered nearly every frame and every word spoken. (Not bad
after 17 years considering I can never remember what I had for
breakfast in the morning...or whether I even ate
The funny thing is, be it
because of my obsession with writing Thunderbirds
stories, or because I've just seen the show so much, I don't
even notice they're marionettes anymore. To me, these are
flesh-and-blood people, as real as you and I. And I only hope
that the stories I write do justice to the men and women who
never fail to inspire me.
I hope they...and my
stories...inspire you as well.
