By far the worst Thomas Series, 26 Oct. 2008
This is by far the worst thomas series. Series 8 is the second series under HIT but the first to be without David Mitton. Where do I start? Well, first they've scrapped the original theme tune, bringing along a load of other cheesy music. They've changed the character's personalaties. Issues that were resolved in the first series (e.g. Thomas refusing to wear his snowplough) seems to have miraculasly reappeared again. The storys and plots are over the top and unrealistic (it's almost as if the engines have no drivers). As for the DVD itself, there are some annoying trailers that you can't skip at the beginning of the DVD, as well as the intro opening titles (the one where the narrator goes through a long winded speech about Sodor and Thomas) before EVERY episode. EXTREMELY TEDIOUS. I would not reccomend this series to anyone.
