Synopsis: When seismic activity near the coast of Greece reveals the lost city of Atlantis, two scientist venture below the depths to explore.

Review: For this episode Brains takes centre stage with some help from Lady Penelope, Parker and Gordon in Thunderbird 4.

Brains and the team are there primarily to rescue the scientist that have tried to explore the last city, but what starts out as a rescue turns into an archeological expedition to view the hydro power core of Atlantis.

I have to say that the CGI Animation in this episode is particularly impressive. I enjoyed the moment in the opening few seconds of the episode where we see the camera pan across some old Statues hidden below the ocean.

I also really enjoyed the sequence toward the end of the episode where Brains and the scientist are scaling the Hydro core of the city in order to get to the top. This brought John into the story so he could use the computer to figure out the glyphs from space and relay instructions to Brains.

As you’d expect. The City Of Atlantis is not visible for long. But Brains is able to preserve the hydro technology via a computer scan he did. So alls well that ends well.
