TheThomasSpectrum wrote:Ooh, I like these types of threads! Here's mine:

1. Arc's animation is better than the New Series models and, at times, is as good as the Classic Series models. All 3, however, are better than Nitrogen's animation.

2. The Hornby models are significantly better than their Bachmann counterparts, and that includes Edward and Emily.

3. I like the large scale models of the Skarloey engines more than their small scale models. I'm not saying that their small scale counterparts were bad, but I like their large scale models more.

4. I like Alec Baldwin's narration, even in S6. He's my favorite narrator in the entire show. Conversely, I do not like George Carlin's narration. He's my least favorite narrator.

5. I don't like Renshaw's rendition of Donald & Douglas's theme. It's my least favorite theme for them. I even liked their U.S. S7 theme more.

6. Michael Brandon did a better job narrating S7-16 than Michael Angelis did.

7. I don't think Thomas and the Magic Railroad is all that bad, but it's not perfect. While TGD and BMM came very close, KOTR was the first special to be better than Magic Railroad.

8. Season 3 is a great season. Massively underrated, you might say.

9. Season 4 is not the best season. If anything, it's overrated. There are too many narrow gauge stories and other than the Stepney stories, the standard gauge stories feel like filler to make the 26 episode limit. I'm tired of hearing how seemingly perfect it is. It doesn't have the best stories or sets or lighting.

I've got two more unpopular opinions:

10. I prefer the friendship between Thomas and Bertie more than Thomas and Percy.

11. I like the restored versions of the classic series more than the originals. Some might say "Why? The restored versions have errors, they show studio equipment, and, in the case of the episode Coal, show a blooper."  To which I say "That's why I like them. I personally like seeing the studio equipment and bloopers in the episodes."

This thread sounds like fun.

1. Thomas and the Magic Railroad was the best thomas movie/special until Lost Treasure and TAB.
2. Season 21 is bad.
3. Season 3 is amazing.
4. Andrew Brenner is not Jesus. As far as modern Thomas writers goes, Helen Farrall is the best.

1. I like the Brenner era more than the Classic Series. The Classic Series is great too, I just personally prefer the Brenner era.
2. I like Season 3 more than Season 4, mostly for some issues that Season 4 has.
3. Duck and the Slip Coaches isn't in my Top 3 favorite Season 18 episodes. Still a great episode though.
4. I hate Day of the Diesels more than Misty Island Rescue. Although, Misty Island Rescue still makes a close second.
5. I like Henry's Forest more than The Flying Kipper. Both episodes are amazing though.
6. I find Season 6 to be the weakest Classic Series season. It has the worst narration of the series, and the worst of the classic series. I still like it though.
7. I like both Blue Mountain Mystery and Journey Beyond Sodor more than King of the Railway. All three specials are very good.
8. A Shed for Edward is my favorite Season 21 episode, and one of my favorites of the whole series.
9. Season 8 is, in my opinion, the least bad season from Seasons 8-16, as it didn't have as many awful episodes as we'd get in those future seasons, and I felt it was decent enough.
10. I don't think the upcoming BWBA stuff looks that bad. Sure, it doesn't look great, I'll admit that, but for me, personally, it doesn't look much worse than Seasons 13-16.

I didn't lose my mind over the switch to CGI... Believe it or not, that was an extremely unpopular opinion 10 years ago, people were freaking out!

Which brings me to, I'm not going to freak out about Big World, Big Adventures either... Though I'm not as positive about this as the CGI switch.

If they ruin the show this time, we've still got all our favorite seasons and books from the past. I don't necessarily require new content.

I have some really weird opinions, so here they are.

1. Emily is a better and more developed character than Duck.

2. Seasons 8 - 11 weren't that bad. 8 and 9 were actually pretty good.

3. Edward is one of the most boring characters.

4. CAE is actually pretty decent. Much better than TATMR.

5. TGR is better than SLOTLT.

6. I really dislike how Thomas and James have been portrayed ever since Season 20. They've had their trademark personality traits stretched out way too much. They've made James' vanity and turned it into an excuse to make him a punching bag. And Thomas is now just a Gary Stu-esque character.

7. Original stories are better and more interesting than RWS stories.

8. Lady is a horrible character, hand's down.

9. I really don't like Rebecca. She's practically just Molly but instead of having an actual personality, she's just the stereotypical annoyingly innocent character everyone loves.

10. I'm not that bothered by unrealism.

11. Season 4 isn't the best season in the Classic Era. That title goes to Season 2.

12. I prefer Rosie's Lavender livery rather than her Cherry Red one.

13. I actually somewhat enjoy Season 13.

14. I don't know if this counts as a TTTE Opinion, (Since this is an opinion about it's Sister Series) but I find TUGS extremely boring and at times, uninteresting. (Munitions and the episode with the goods engine are pretty good though.)

15. I want Molly, Neville, Murdoch, and Derek to return more than BoCo or Duke.

16. I really enjoyed BWBA.

I have some more unpopular opinions.

1. Edward and Henry are better off as secondary characters.
2. Philip is the most overhated character in the series.
3. The Great Race is one of the worst specials.
4. Season 21 is in my top 5 favorite seasons of the show.
5. Emily in the Middle is one of the worst Brenner era episodes.
6. Season 14 is the least bad Nitrogen season.
7. Wonky Whistle > Sodor Surprise Day
8. Toad > Oliver
9. Season 18 > Season 1
10. Timothy > BoCo

My thoughts on yours...

1. I do prefer Duck, but I do agree that Emily is actually written pretty well and nicely fleshed out... at least in S8-12, when she, yknow, had a personality. Gosh I love S8-12 Emily so much more than “nice” S7/17 onwards Emily.

2. Agree for the most part.

3. Very much don’t.

4. Both are kinda guilty pleasures for me but I do actually prefer CAE.

5. I don’t really mind TGR but it doesn’t hold a candle to SLOTLT imo.

6. I agree in regards to Thomas in most episodes, James to a lesser extent too but I enjoy a lot of his material too.

7. Just depends on the story itself for me.

8. I can’t really call her a *terrible* character... I just struggle calling her a character period. It’s been confirmed that she doesn’t even really exist in-universe.

9. How was Molly any different? All she was was just... shy. I think Rebecca’s honestly got more personality. Though I’d love to see both of them developed more.

10. I agree to some extent.

11. Geez that’s a toughie. Love ‘em both.

12. Same.

13. When I was younger I did. Now, less so.

14. Disagree.

15. I think I’d rather have Molly or Murdoch, and especially Dennis, back over BoCo maybe. Don’t really care about Neville at all. (Seriously, what is Neville’s personality supposed to be? Even the producers struggled to describe him in a behind the scenes video with Pierce Brosnan). I don’t think anyone deserves to return more than Duke though.

16. I enjoyed it too. Not great, but pretty solid overall.

- I think Seasons 3 and 5 are more visually appealing than Season 4.

- With the exception of Rusty, I prefer the large scale models over their small scale counterparts.

Unpopular opinion: Duck has a personality. He’s a total smartass.

New unpopular opinions of mine...
-I did not like Season 22...
-I don't know what to feel with the BWBA special.
-I prefer Henry and Edward (plus Toby) over Nia and Rebecca (although I do not hate them) for spots on the Steam Team (although it should have never been created in the first place).

- Season 22 was hit and miss. There were some good episodes, but there were some bad ones too.
- The Big World! Big Adventures movie was meh. Not as bad as I expected it to be, but most certainly not good either.
- The Steam Team concept should never have existed to begin with.
- Apology Impossible's my new most hated episode. Yes, I despise it more than The Christmas Tree Express. Apology Impossible stooped James' persona to a new low, making him too arrogant for his own good, and Philip's backups (Paxton, Rebecca and Thomas) lead to.... nothing. This episode is a clue that the show's gone on too long.

-Apology Impossible would have worked if it was a Percy and Diesel 10 episode.
-I like both the brown Trackmaster and blue Tomy track, but I despise the gray Trackmaster 2 track. It looks like something which would belong in a hotwheels set.
-I prefer Daisy on the Ffarquhar branch instead of the Harwick branch. Barry and Sheffield run the Harwick with Ryan in my canon. Plus, it felt too forced when they added Daisy to the Harwick as she barely had any stories on the Ffarquhar branch in the TV Series due to her long absence.
