As per the title, fantastic value having so many episodes on one disc! We like it a lot.
Downfall of only having one disc for all those episodes + one Thomas mad toddler
a) it's too easy for him to get away with watching much more than we'd like. He'd remind us to entertain him some other way when he comes to tell us he's bored- he doesn't do this with this disc as it's one episode after another, non stop
b) it's become scratched (with toddler 'driving' the disc around the house as well as having had lots of play. If we had separate discs we wouldn't bother replacing it, but now the time has come, we've bought a box set of 3 discs instead. Easier to portion control too, and fantastic value again from Amazon.
The volume is randomly quiet and then loud throughout episodes. Sound is especially quiet during the song. Parent friendly I suppose but annoying for the child. Have tried the disc on our other tvs; it is definitely the disc. I'd hope this is a fault with just my disc, I didn't send it back because he loved it so much.
