OK, I have Thunderbirds all programmed to record on my TiVo-whatever. I liked Sophia in Underworld, loved her in Tristan and Isolde but, of course, she was the best in MOONLIGHT. Remember MOONLIGHT? The wonderfully addictive show we all loved- it won the People's Choice Award,consistently won it's time slot, had millions of adoring fans- fans who went nuts when the show got cancelled? These fans - from around the world-did a zillion different things to get the show picked up by another network and apparently none of it worked? Yep, MOONLIGHT is what I liked Sophia Myles best in.........

I became a fan of Sophia since I watched Tristan and Isolde. I, too, enjoyed her in Underworld. But just like anonymous said, Sophia was best as "Beth". The Mick/Beth love story was the best in Moonlight. Oh, how I miss my Mick/Beth & my beloved show, Moonlight!! But I will definitely watch "Thunderbirds".

Thanks, Kandye, for the information.
