Thomas is dead to older fans
23 February 2019 | by maciancioloSee all my reviews

If a kid wants a good Thomas movie, then show them The Adventure Begins Or Legend Of The Lost Treasure, not this. We've already had a dark age for Thomas with Sharon Miller and then we finally got back on track. Even I got back into the show after The Great Race and I'm well passed the age range. Now I feel as if my childhood has been massacred with the almost complete destruction of all realism and terrible side characters that fail to teach kids any solid morals.
