In Review: Thunderbirds Are Go – Undercover

An undercover sting operation involving Lady Penelope, Kayo and a heavily disguised Parker gets blown prematurely by the Global Defence Force.

Synopsis: An undercover sting operation involving Lady Penelope, Kayo and a heavily disguised Parker gets blown prematurely by the Global Defence Force.

Review: This episode sees International Rescue being pulled into an undercover operation to recover a piece of stolen technology, which is highly magnetic.

In order the obtain this stolen technology a team made up of Lady Penelope, Parker and Kayo from International Rescue has teamed with the GDF for an unorthodox sting operation, which sees Parker adopting the role of a Spanish buyer interested in the technology and Lady P playing his driver while Kayo covertly watches their backs from the shadows.

Everything is looking good and just as the crook selling the technology is about to make the exchange with Parker a mishap involving Tea and Cake at the GDF causes their forces to move into action prematurely and blows the whole operation.

The sting very quickly changes into a rescue operation when Parker is nabbed by the crook.

Some fun moments in this story include Parker’s somewhat iffy Spanish accent and Lady Penelope trying to do her best East End accent, which in and of itself is worth the price of admission.

By the close of the episode Kayo is put into an impossible position and will most likely have to reveal her family connection with The Hood to International Rescue.
