Unpopular Thomas Opinions

Post by JRCS on Sun Mar 22, 2015 11:47 pm

I was unsure whether this is more suited to the game board, but I decided it wasn't a game Razz.

Do you have any opinions on Thomas that go against what general Thomas fans think? You can post (confess) them here. This is in the General Thomas Discussion sub-board, so anything Thomas related can be posted here.

For example, I've never understood why so many people hate Rosie. I think she is by far the best character introduced in the New Series (with Stanley and Whiff as honourable mentions). She has the most potiential of anyone and I think they could work out a great little sister (but not dumb) persona.

Oooh, I love these kinds of threads! Razz

-I don't think the ERTL range is anything that special.
-I like Alec Baldwin's narrations (mainly in S5 though)
-I prefer Season 17 over Season 18. Although I like both quite a bit.
-Season 8 is actually decent.

I like Pierce Brosnan's narration,

I don't think Duck is a big deal (well it was when he first came back but now it isn't as much of a big deal)

I like TATMRR (ducks for cover) no really, i do.

Calling all Engines! isn't that bad.

I liked MIR, DOTD, and TATMR when I first saw them, and still do, actually. I also have never read a RWS book, except for a 60th anniversary Thomas the Tank Engine that was clearly modified, since it called the Fat Director "Sir Topham Hatt".

I wasn't like that, I liked TATMRR when I saw it, But I hated MIR, that was a 65th anniversary special! And I never bought DOTD, and when I saw the full thing on YouTube I could only expect the worst, name one good thing about the story of DOTD and MIR, or any more if you can think of them.

Good idea for a thread, JRCS!

I hate Paxton in almost every episode he's in. He's far too silly for my liking and I think he's really annoying!

Love this kind of thread!

Even though I didn't really like Misty Island Rescue, I didn't hate it either. Same thing with TATMR.

While I do love Mark Moraghan's narrations, I still prefer Ringo Starr and Michael Angelis.

I don't really hate any character. Not even the one-off characters or those with no personality at all. I'm even okay with Billy, Lady, Thumper, Proteus, Bertram, Mighty Mac, Ivo Hugh, Rosie, Flora, Colin and the Logging Locomotives. *Ducks for cover*

I honestly prefer the TV series colours for the Narrow Gauge engines over the Railway Series colours. Makes it easier to tell who is who and to increase variety.

I enjoy all of Seasons 1-12 regardless of their flaws. (I turn a blind eye towards those) *Ducks for cover again*

1. I think that Season 13 is even worse than Season 15.
2. Samson Sent for Scrap, in my opinion, isn't that bad.
3. Fiery Flynn and Race to the Rescue are worse than Wonky Whistle.
4. Signals Crossed is actually pretty good, if you ignore Toby being out-of-character.
5. I'm not sure how unpopular this is, but I felt The Adventure Begins did some things better than the Classic Series. Prepare to nuke me now. Razz

1. Out of all the HIT era characters introduced, Rosie is my absolute favorite (with Stanley and Belle being a close second and third respectively. I also find Millie, Caitlin, Marion, Luke, and Paxton to be cool characters too).
2. I think Season 8 started the show's downfall (and is my second least favorite season), NOT Season 9 (although it did add coal to the fire Razz  ).
3. I honestly think Calling all Engines is the second worst special, while I think Day of the Diesels is the third worst.
4. I find Flatbeds of Fear to be the best episode of Season 18, instead of Duck and the Slip Coaches.
5. Season 8-12 Emily was too much of a you-know-what. Season 13-16 Emily was okay but still needed some work. Season 7 and 17-present Emily is perfect.
6. I like Mavis' old US voice (Jules de Jongh) better than her new one (her UK voice).
7. I also support shipping of the characters (ThomasxEmily, etc.), but only in certain fanfics and certain groups who do support it too.

1. I loved Day of the Diesels, my second favorite special (behind TAB)
2. The controversy over Duck vs. Emily is overrated
3. I also loved TATMR, despite its unrealism
4. Alec Baldwin is my favorite all-time narrator for the show
5. I think all of the one-off characters (Stanley and Rosie, primarily) have loads of potential.

I never liked Percy and the Calliope. I think it is one of the most overrated episodes ever. I always prefered Flash Bang Wallop.

I prefer King of the Railway to Tale of the Brave. I actually found it a little disappointing.

I don't mind Lady. She would be great as a dream character like in CAE.

Not sure if this is unpopular, but I didn't like Emily's S13-16 intelligent personality. Her S17+ one is so much better.

I hate Series 16 more than Series 13. I just got bored watching every episode.

No that isn't unpopular, in fact lots of people prefer the 17+ persona.

I don't mind Ferdinand and I wouldn't be upset if he returned.

Mavis is the only female character I like.

I wished Henrietta's face should've have been like like Annie & Clarabel's

I would like to see more of Norman, and have a personality for him.

Season Five is the last series I can watch multiple time without getting bored until Season Seventeen.

I don't know why, but I'm not that bothered about Donald and Douglas returning. I'd much rather have BoCo return because I think we would see more Edward if he returns.

I prefer S7/S17+ Emily over Duck. (*runs*)

The only Thomas merchandise I like are Wooden Railway, TOMY/Pre-2014 Trackmaster and the Electric model lines (and Home Media if that counts).

I like every S1-5 Thomas episode. Even the ones I found a bit.. meh, I can still watch and enjoy. (Not sure if this is actually unpopular, but still).

The only character I REALLY wish to return to the series is Stepney.

i mean, he IS annoying but not as much as the logging losers, THATS RI- but i like the fact he is an official HiT engine with a number, we haven't seen one of those in a while unless you count Belle, but i mean one that would fit in a line of numbers, example being 1-11, say if Emily were to get 12 and say Rosie 13, there would be a line of numbers 1-14, and now it is 1-15 with samson. i don't know why that makes my opinion on a character though XD

1. I thought King of the Railway was rather boring *ducks for cover* but still good.
2. I enjoyed Season 5 very much actually, even with the lack of realism
3. I do like to pair up some engines with each other, or 'ship' them as most people would say, but I don't mention it much on most Thomas-related stuff.
4. I think Season 13 was worse than season 15

Seems like I'm not the only one who thinks Season 13 is the worst then. Razz

1. I like all of Seasons 1-4 besides the flaws.
2. I like the idea of Stepney running the Bluebell Valley line.
3. Seasons 5-7 was the start of the decline. The New Series was just when things got worse.
4. I don't like most of the Seasons 6-12 models and sets besides the Wharf, Transfer Yards and some Seasons 6-7 scenes on the Skarloey Railway.
5. I like Arc Productions over Nitrogen Studios.
6. I would like to see at least one new special and season without introducing any new characters.

1) I think Nitrogen's animation is pretty bad. At least, it hasn't aged well.
2) I think DOTD is almost as bad as MIR.
3) I don't mind the episodes that brought back Henry needing special coal.
4) I wouldn't mind seeing the Logging Locos and Misty Island again.
5) I would quite like to see Splatter and Dodge return.
6) I don't hate Billy.
7) I like Fergus.
