Shining Time Station
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved watching Shining Time Station on PBS when I was really little. It is a shame that they eventually took it off of the air. It was educational, funny, and fun to watch. It taught kids, like me, about important lessons in life. I miss that show so much. I can still hear the theme song when I am in a quiet place and I think back to those good old days. I wish they would bring it back. It meant so much me and many, many others. I hope that someday soon they either bring it back on TV or they release the original episodes on VHS and DVD, the way they were shown on TV when they originally aired. Please, bring it back!
