The Thunderbirds Visit Fantasy Island

Ok...couldn't help myself. Found this old VHS with an episode of Fantasy Island on it. Nancy Carsons is an airline pilot whoes Indian background needs her to 'tame' a Thunderbird.

This is a classic! So campy I can't begin to tell ya.

I've cut out a few scenes from the show. The one where Nancy meets the 'Boss' and has a date. Finds out from the 'General' that she can't fly a Thunderbird. Makes-out with the Boss. Then, has a conversation with her dead father, the CHIEF, about following her heart. Finally, telling Mr. Roarke that she's going to fly a Thunderbird no matter what.

Watch for some fun stuff. When she's inverted, they merely 'flipped' the footage. Check the writing on the T-38, the names are backwards!

Plenty of other fun stuff. My fav, Mr. Roarke's jedi-mind trick with the CC of the plane she "borrows". Bwaaahahahah...!

Enjoy a piece of classic TV from the early 80s.
