When I was a kid, the closest thing to science-fiction TV for kids was a show called Thunderbirds. It was a puppet show, and if you've seen Matt Parker and Trey Stone's Team America, you've seen their parody of it.

It was a fundamentally goofy show, but for me, it was always a sketch of what the Andersons wanted to do, but couldn't in live action. And I thought the architecture was the coolest thing I had ever seen in my young life - what the '60s thought the future would be.

Well, living in New York these days - particularly on the Far West Side - is like living in Thunderbirdland. 

Thunderbirds are go!
