Magic School Bus: New Beginning, New Thrills, New Adventures
I remember watching the old series while eating breakfast, getting ready for another day of elementary school, and was excited during science class when the teacher turned down the lights, hit play and everyone watched the episode based on the subject we were learning.
It was great fun while it lasted, sad though that the series was over, the show no longer aired, though those who enjoyed the old series purchased the DVDs that were released in store, but after all these years, to see a trailer for the new series, the kid inside that grew up groomed down as I fell in love with the series once it was finally released on the 29th on Netflix.
As for my thoughts, I love the new animation, much better then the old cell animation with the old series. So much can be done now, new styles that could't be done before with the classic series. The class, love how each character was redesigned, maintaining the characteristics, skin and hair color to the previous series and the plots, technology, the creators went with the modern day then old school. The music, especially in the introduction really brought back memories, and I loved the new voice. The only negative thing I would have to say that could be done was at the end of the intro, show what the episode was going to be, the title, like with the old series. That is my only concern, but as for the plot itself, it definitely follows and flows the same way with the classic, especially at the end where Ms. Frizzle "Sr" answers questions the audience has, and even gives clues as to what the next episode would be.
I would defiantly say that with this new series, the new generation of young kinds that are anxious for learning, fun, and excitement will love this series like I do and will want to continue to watch and know what will happen next in the exciting adventures of "The Magic School Bus Rides Again.
