I've been hooked on this show for a little while. It's about a group of pirates known as the 'Yohos', that can only speak two words - Yoho and Ahoy (no surprise where the title comes from then!!) Watching the episodes, what I love about the series is that the visuals speak for themselves, rather like Clangers and Pingu, and the lack of a main character means that you can have any odd character interacting with anyone - rather like Thomas in that sense, and the series is home to episodes featuring good character dynamics.
Does anyone else remember this show? It aired on CBBC and later Cebeebies during the early 2000s, and has seemingly now been forgotten at large - though it appears it still has quite a bit of love, so much so the creator of the series - Mole Hill - opened a personal website for the series featuring behind the scenes photos and pre-production sketches; yohoahoy.moonfruit.com/

fobhew22: OJ that would be something worth watching! "So how does Thomas eventually get off this remote island he's been stranded on?" "It's super easy actually. Barely an inconvenience."

ScarletSpider: "Yeah?" "Will he actually use it to threaten the steam locomotives?" "Not in this movie! It's just there for merch."

dtchapman1: You know, I've said in the past that 'Thunderbirds are Go' can be such a tease when it comes to it's overarching episodes, but this times, they have given us more then what we could have asked for.

dtchapman1: I can't wait for the next episode.

OJ: I've seen the epsiode myself and what an ending to part one. Can't wait for it to conclude. From what I hear I think the show is endng.

OJ: I would like to have seeen another series but looks like the show will go out with a bang.

Madness: 'Thunderbirds Are Go' is coming to an end after next Saturday's episode. I saw 'The Long Reach' myself and I loved it, and what a shocker to the end of part one. I hope part two is a superb finale to the series.
