ABC For Kids
The final DVD release for 2012 for the Australian Thomas fans. I bought the UK version of the DVD back in August 2012 when I was on holiday in England at Liverpool. The DVD cost me 8.00 british pounds at HMV, for four episodes that's a good price. Well let's get on with the review shall we?
Before the release of 'Merry Winter Wish' this year in the UK, Australia was the only country to have six episodes from the CGI era of the show. Its been on a few releases since 'Splish, Splash Splosh'. Some episodes were not that good, but 'Pingy Pongy Pickup' is decent enough. The episodes are as usual in their annoying three strikes formula.
It's strange how on the ABC Shop and EzyDVD's websites, they mentioned that there is three episodes of HIT Entertainment's new show 'Mike The Knight' because the DVD has no special features at all! Maybe they planned that but end up scrapping the idea? Ah well we all have our own thoughts don't we?
I give the DVD an average rating, the episodes would be of course entertaining for kids, but not too an older Thomas fan really. Even though I find 'Pingy, Pongy Pick Up' the most decent episode, it has its unrealistic and stupid moments. If parents are looking for a Christmas present this year, I suggest buying 'Blue Mountain Mystery' instead, but its your choice.
