The meteor one? Yes, I tend to be pretty up to speed due to the little one liking to watch it with me! I may have missed something, but I did have a few niggles although they're understandable. They did of course have to do the "pew pew" sound effects for the big laser blasts, it's a kids show after all, but I thought the tracking system was well handled as was the subsequent selective targeting, very logical.
Presumably Scott's jetpack was too much on the lunar surface having been designed to counter normal gravity, but I wonder what it used for propellant - ain't no oxygen to burn up there. Similarly, consider if you will Scott's uniform. He wore his standard uniform plus a helmet for the space mission. That's a fingerless uniform - I noticed it when he was holding onto the buggy. I then also realised that there's no seal around his neck between the helmet and the uniform, so the back of his neck was going to get a little chilly!
I do like the use of "hard" science as far as it goes on the series, tying the meteor storm into an actual astrological event, that's clever. Thunderbird 3's reaction jets constantly fire as it's shifting trajectory. Breathing out so their lungs don't explode, also a nice comment (had to explain why they said it to the little one!) It's like Star Trek Lite. It's the sort of show that makes me proud of what kids TV can achieve when handled will love and care. Brilliant how they're mixing traditional sets with the CGI too. It modernises the show without making it look the same as every other kid's show. I think it deserves to do really well.
Unfortunately the little one has just entered his Power Rangers phase. I'll do my best to keep him on track, but by God, they're clever at marketing this stuff! Quite impressed with the Megazord he brought back from the US though, I always assumed they'd be a bit throw-away but it's actually easy for him to transform and very solid. Which is what it needs to be...!
