Ok... so I'm 18 years old, and I grew up with Thomas The Tank Engine on the television.
I still love Thomas now (not the new episodes, they are rubbish, why they brought it loads of new characters and ruined the show... I will never know!)
I had some friends over a few nights back, and what was kind of embarassing was that they found my Thomas and Friends dvd collection while we were looking for a movie to watch! (I have all of the seasons that have been released, 7 so far!)
They have teased me about it non-stop since the party, but I don't really care... Thomas is and will always be my favourite television programme. It is just amazing.. I love Ringo Starr's narration in the earlier seasons and I love the way they animated the expressions on the engines' faces :)
I think I love it now for the same reasons I loved it when I was a little kid... it was the best show on television, all the others kind of... well, they weren't good, let's put it that way. It's the same now.
Buy this dvd collection, if you loved Thomas when you were young it will take you back to those days, and if you love Thomas now.... well, JUST BUY IT!
