Customer Review

on 24 October 2012
Another great release by HIT Entertainment. The first three seasons of 'Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends' are the ones to get as they're all remastered from 2004. The remastered episodes were rare in the UK, US and Australia before, as they've been released on separate DVDs, promotional ones etc. Japan is really the one with all the remastered episodes on their home releases, but not as a series compilation. Aside from the wonderful and crystal clear footage, these episodes are wonderfully written by a vicar named Rev.W.Awdry, creator of the Railway Series, along with son Christopher Awdry and are much more better then the recent series' writings. The narration is nostalgic with the likes of Ringo Starr, who is a big nostalgia factor for kids who grew up with the model animation from 1984-2008. There has been other narrators at the time like Michael Angelis and Pierce Brosnan, but when you ask a question whether its trivia or asking one in general, Ringo's the first thing that comes to mind, like he was during The Beatles. A new age fan will enjoy these episodes, it has good morals and entertaining story lines and if CGI isn't your cup of tea, these DVDs will be your entertainment. These are a great idea for a Christmas gift this year. The episodes are all remastered, with great story lines, memorable music, morals and stunning model animation. You can also buy the S4-7 as well to show your kids the old Thomas and share the joy you had when you were a child with your child, along with 'Blue Mountain Mystery'.
