THESE ARE SOLEY UNDER MY OWN OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
Since that Season 16 has now come to an end here in Australia, despite that their is an episode delay until Christmas and that England are showing, 'Sodor Surprise Day' on Channel 5's mikshake! Here is my Overall review on the Sixteenth series of Thomas & Friends.
I actually enjoyed this season. It was certainly better then Season 15, despite that the writing style. There were some moments that older Thomas fans found nostalgic such as 'Express Coming Through' and 'Percy and The Calliope'. With those two episode there were moments like Thomas hauling the express (Express Coming Through) and hearing a rendition of the classical Thomas the Tank Engine theme song on the Calliope (Percy and The Calliope) and me personally, 'Whiff's Wish', the opening was realistic with the engines and their jobs and of course the mention of 'The Flying Kipper'.
Looking back at the S15 episode, I have to say that this season, S16, pulls it out of the water. But there have been some flaws and their was alliteration and rhyming from Michael Angelis, some characters persona's were ruined, such as Edward and Toby. The new character, Stafford, was interesting and it was great seeing the Skarloey Railway engines again in full CGI.
Rating for S16: 4.5/5
Before Nitrogen's contribution of Thomas comes to an end in December, here is to Andrew Brenner, the new head writer, we're looking forward to the new changes of Thomas & Friends in Season 17 and also to Arc Production, we're also looking forward to the brand new animation that you'll be providing for the new seasons and DVD specials.
