TERRAHAWKS - Season 01, Episode 01 - "Expect The Unexpected" (1983)


"Expect The Unexpected!" That's exactly what I'm talking about!

 "TERRAHAWKS" is another Gerry Anderson production, so one thing you shouldn't expect is real people, even if it's a freakin' emergency!

Alternate titles for "TERRAHAWKS" are:
"Jastrebovi Zemlje!"   and......

.....The ever popular ......
"A Brigada Falcão!"

The "TERRAHAWKS" are out to save the world!
We could probably really use them today!

In the year 2020 Earth is under threat from Martian androids who want revenge on the human race. Ironically, Zaeger and Evans didn't predict this was going to happen until the year 2525! The perpetrators are Zelda, (Not to be confused with the video game) her son Yung-star, and her sister Cy-star. (Kind of like "Orphan Black," Sister, Seester, Systar)

A group of defenders is set up on Earth called "TERRAHAWKS," that is top secret to the rest of the world. So, Shhhhhhh!!!

And here they are, the "TERRAHAWKS!"
 I'm using the title sequence shots because, frankly, they're better than the stills I would have gotten from the story itself! The actors doing the voices take on multiple characters, like Lt. Hiro is done by Jeremy (always in the kitchen at parties) Hitchin

Lt. Hawkeye is voiced by Robbie (Littlebigplanet video game) Stevens, and Capt. Kate Kestrel is voiced by Anne (Dr. Gemma Corwyn) Ridler!

Capt. Mary Falconer, and the voice of Zelda are both done by Denise (Labyrinth) Bryer!

"Flaming Thunderbolts!"
Dr. Tiger's voice is also done by Jeremy Hitchen!

Wasn't there an 80's alternative band called Zelda and the Zeroids? 
If not, there sure should have been!! I guess it's not too late!
