User Reviews

classic series great new and cgi series OK
2 October 2010 | by ultramandan286See all my reviews

I've been a fan of Thomas all my life and i have to say that the older series is a lot better than the new one. i don't really like how hit entertainment change to cgi but after viewing it the animation was good. most of the episodes aren't that good anymore though. they use a lot of recycled plots and introduce characters we only see once. and hit didn't use characters that they had from previous seasons. i like to view before I give my opinions so ya if Your going to show your kid Thomas show the old episodes first. ill love Thomas for the rest of my life but i just hope hit does better writing in the future and they have with misty island rescue. i give the show an 8 out of 10
