This set, #5, is the 2nd to last volume in A&E's Thunderbirds collection.
For some reason there are only 5 episodes on these discs instead of 6 like on all the previous ones. There are also no additional bonus features to fill the extra space, actually, there are less extras than on the other discs. Only a still photo gallery. No featurettes like on all the other sets. Just unused space.
Seems a little lite compared to the other volumes, especially considering its basicly the same price.
The last volume, #6, is even lighter, with 3 episodes on disc 1, and on disc 2, no episodes, just a collection of rerun clips hosted by Brains, and a 'Making Of' short that was already on a previous disc in the series.
And of course, its still the same price, but for half the content.
Quality wise, the episodes are great, remastered video and audio are done very well. A&E has done a swell job on the whole series, and Thunderbirds fans should check these sets out.
In th future, I hope A&E searches around a bit more, and obtain enough bonus materials before they release of Captian Scarlet Full Series Box Set!
No half filled discs please, these things aint cheap!! :)

Volume 5 of the Thunderbirds series displays the final two episodes of the show's first season and the first three of the truncated second season, and these five stories give the show a needed shot in the arm with three of the strongest scripts - culimating in the second of the show's two greatest episodes - and two other engaging stories.
The Cham-Cham - US Air Force transports are ferrying engines for the space program from Matthews AFB, but two previous transport craft have been attacked by pirate fighters, and a third such transport is itself attacked as it proceeds on its course.
Thunderbird Five is monitoring the flight, and Alan notices a curious anomoly - a live unicast of a supremely popular jazz song, "Dangerous Game," by its composers, the Cass Carnaby Five. A backcheck shows that the two previous attacks on USAF transports coincided with live airings of the same song, and Jeff is intrigued enough to have Brains examine a tape of the recent Carnaby unicast on his computer, while Lady Penelope and TinTin are sent to the Cass Carnaby Five's present home base, a super-swank hotel and music stage atop a mountain in the Swiss Alps.
Posing as a singer - that no one has heard of - Penny meets Cass Carnaby's manager, Olsen, who comes off as mysterious. Learning that he lives in a chateau further down the peaks, Penny and TinTin ski there and find the answer to the pirate fightercraft attacks - just as Brains decodes how Cass Carnaby music is aiding the pirates. Now Penny must sing "Dangerous Game" in a different way, but it may be too late to save the next transport - or Penny and TinTin, who find themselves trapped on a runaway gondola sliding down the mountain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thunderbirds, with more storyline May 1, 2002
Another wonderful outing with International Rescue!
I notice that these episodes often feature more depth and variety in the storyline, which adds to their repeat-watching appeal. You really get the feeling that the writers were getting into their stride with the series and broadening it to a spy/rescue show (using ever-cool Lady Penelope).
And, for those who are already fans, I'm pleased to report that A&E have finally used the correct theme music on the DVD menu (not the inaccurate version from 'No Strings Attached').

5.0 out of 5 stars Great January 30, 2014
Verified Purchase
Grabbed one of the movies in a Big Lots store. I vaguely remember it from my childhood so I thought why not. Well, this little gem of a show is really pretty great. I ran across another Thunderbirds movie and got it also. That got me to Amazon and I now have all but one of the sets and looking forward to getting that one also. Really amazing when you think about what they do with models. The behind the scenes features shows how they do it and it very interesting. It makes what you are seeing even more amazing when you watch the shows after learning how they shoot it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thunderbirds Are Go! January 3, 2013

Great fun for everybody in a family to see what beautiful marionette work was done so long ago and that the stories are still just as much fun and entertaining now as they were in 1964.
