Thanks - good to know. I would guess he/she considered it to be the natural end for the series.

here's how he would've ended it.

E! Online - Entertainment News, Celeb Gossip, Hot Photos

and the significance of the final scene:

I would have had him on the run the last season, possibly along with Deb. Maybe even have them both on the run separately going in different directions and have them both branching off into different SL's. Would have made the last season more interesting imo. Maybe then you have them both end up together in the end and blown up in a safehouse location. Only one survives and you don't know who until the person is shown in the final scene. Hell, or even kill them both. Maybe his kid still ends up with Hannah.

I would have expected that Dexter was at least going to be exposed as a killer, maybe he protects Deb and she lives on but for him to not get found out is a little disappointing.

Well, I watched a lot of episodes this week of BB (there has been a marathon on all week/weekend) and watched the finale. Very good series, but imo slightly over rated.

Cast for Thunderbirds Are Go! Series Revealed

Quote:
Announced back in February, the cast for the new "Thunderbirds" TV series Thunderbirds Are Go! has officially been revealed and includes some of the original cast members. Read the full press release below to get all the details.

Fifty years after its television debut the iconic series is back in production featuring a talented cast led by Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope and David Graham (Thunderbirds 1965) reprising his role as chauffeur and International Rescue agent Parker.
Debuting on ITV in 2015 this re-invention of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's much-loved series will be produced using an innovative mix of CGI animation and live-action miniature sets.

Unstoppable inventor Brains will be voiced by Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Facejacker) whilst Tracy brothers Gordon and John are both played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, Game of Thrones). Rasmus Hardiker (Saxondale, Lead Balloon) has been cast as both the youngest and oldest Tracy brothers Alan and Scott. The fifth Tracy brother, Virgil, will be played by David Menkin.

Tracy Island matriarch Grandma Tracy is voiced by Sandra Dickinson (Amazing World of Gumball, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and master villain The Hood played by Andres Williams (M.I. High, Foyle’s War).

Plus Thunderbirds Are Go! will feature new characters including Kayo, the Tracy brothers’ friend and fellow island resident, who will be played by Angel Coulby (Merlin, Dancing on the Edge) and Colonel Casey voiced by Adjoa Andoh (Invictus, Doctor Who)

Giles Ridge, Executive Producer, Thunderbirds Are Go! said: “Each member of the cast has brought a brilliantly fresh and unique approach to these wonderful characters.I can’t think of anyone better than Rosamund to bring back to life the fabulous Lady Penelope and we are honoured that David Graham has joined the cast to revisit his role as Parker.”

Rosamund Pike commented: "I’m very excited to bring Lady Penelope’s wry wit and taste for adventure to a new generation. Exploring the scenes with David Graham has been an absolute delight. The scripts are very modern, very fresh and very funny. We’re all eagerly anticipating our next stint in the recording studio!"

David Graham, playing Parker, added: “I am triple chuffed to be on board the new series of Thunderbirds Are Go!and reprising my role of dear old Parker with such a distinguished cast.My driving skills are in good nick and I am delighted to be behind the wheel again with M’Lady.Cheerio!”

Featuring the world's most famous family of heroes, International Rescue, Thunderbirds Are Go! will blast the five brave Tracy brothers back on to television screens piloting their incredible vehicles into impossible rescues across the globe.

Thunderbirds Are Go! is produced by ITV Studios and New Zealand based Pukeko Pictures, with world-famous Weta Workshop (Avatar, King Kong, The Lord of the Rings) designing the series and producing the miniatures. The 26 x 30’ major new children’s series will debut on ITV and UK’s CITV Channel in 2015.

Thunderbirds Are Go! is executive produced by Estelle Hughes for ITV Studios, Giles Ridge for ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) and Richard Taylor and Andrew Smith for Pukeko Pictures.

The Head Writer is Rob Hoegee (Slugterra, Generator Rex, Teen Titans, League of Super Evil) and the Series Director is David Scott (LEGO Star Wars), with Theo Baynton (the WotWots) as Episodic Director.

Thunderbirds Are Go! has been picked-up by Jamila Metran, Head of Programming for CITV, and is currently in production.

It's kind of cool to see that the "Basketball Jones" guys are going to have a weekly show on NBA TV and daily podcasts on NBA.com.
