Thunderbirds – The Original Team America

April 30, 2009

Maybe I’m dumb and everybody already knows this, okay maybe I’m not dumb, just born in the ’80s.

So I’m watching TV with my husband tonight and we flip to the AMC channel, and there’s this marionette puppet style show and I said, “Holy crap, this is exactly like Team America: World Police!” and he was like, “You’ve never seen this before?  It’s what that movie was based on, duh.”  (well minus the “duh” but I heard it in my head).  It’s a British show from way back, and apparently it was prime time viewing in Turkey where he was a boy in the late 70s.

It’s hilarious as hell!
