i have always liked the first ever Thunderbirds episode: trapped in the sky, but i always thought it was a bit repetitive so here is my cut list:

-new opening titles(sort of!)

-only 1 rescue attempt instead of 3.

-fix some inaccuarices with later episodes like Alan,s voice

-the hood no longer the villain for this episode, now there is just a random terrorist.

-we only get to see the Hood,s face at the end!

Oh good, Thunderbirds edits. Did you know they were originally going to be half an hour before Lew Grade gave the order for a lenghtier show? Would love to see you tackle this in that format

Ironically, the horrible redubbed versions that aired in the states in the 90's were chopped down to half hours. I think the new voice talent was heavily sedated as well. ;-)

I wonder what someone could do with the 2004 live action film?

Never saw those...

And nothing can be done with the 2004 film. Damn you to hell for even reminding me of its existence.

Sorry! I had to rinse the bad taste out with the new Blu Ray of the original movies myself.

There's some sharp abruptness after Jeff says "and you are the loyalist", might want to polish up on that
"International Rescue Edition" has a typo ("Recue"), and does'nt match the font used for "Trapped In The Sky", try to match the title card font as best as possible
At 04:46, there is a very brief but distracting shot of the scene preceding the Hood making the phone call
Before we cut to Thunderbird 5, again, we see a bit from the previous scene that was cut
20:33, there is a very abrupt shift to Fireflash where half of the hiss from flight can be heard. Transition better there
When Virgil is performing the rescue, some of his dialogue is muffled by the music
That ending was quite sudden, definitely not where I'd cut it off. Hell, what would be a hilarious ending would be if security completely failed and someone did run off with the photos.

Sorry if this comes off as a harsh review, but we all like to encourage people with an interest in editing to tighten the bolts and make their product even better. I'm glad you uploaded the video, as it allows people who are not specifically Academy members (in essence a preview of an editor's eventual overall audience) to also view your work and offer input on what to do to improve it. Don't feel discouraged by this, I say what I say as a fan of this show and as a fan of what one can do with the show. There's a good solid plan with this edit, it just needs a firm footing

Thunderbirds was featured in an episode of Channel 4's "It Was Alright In The 70s" tonight highlighting all the instances of the puppets smoking and drinking.

Please explain what you mean. If you are going back to work on this more, I need to notify The Academy. And trust me, it will be for your own good.
