Mr. Perkins Postcard - Diesels
Mr. Perkins Storytime - Pop Goes The Diesel
Railway Mischief came out last year by Wal*Mart with five selected S17 episodes which were given good reception by the fandom, minus one though. Now we have S18 exclusive episodes which are now getting greater reception as well from the Thomas & Friends fandom. Will this exclusive DVD exceed the amount of pleasure then Railway Mischief? Well let's find out.
Like last year, the DVD features five selected episodes from the upcoming 18th season, which will air later this year on television. I won't go in full detail of the episodes as I will leave that when S18 has it television run. But to clarify my views on the episodes I find them to be better then the previous series. This exclusive DVD blew 'Railway Mischief' right out of the water. The writing is good as always and yes there has been one hit and miss but I don't mind it as it's not as bad as the writing from S9-16.
The special features are great as always with their intervals. We have another story time with Mr. Perkins with 'Pop Goes The Diesel' with some minimal additions by Lorraine Marshall. We have 'Calling All Engines!' with Paxton and Salty sharing their bio's of their character for the young generation of Thomas fans to know. We also have Mr. Perkins talking about the Dieselworks via postcard telling us about the diesel engines and that despite they're the future of the railways they can always breakdown.
I bought the DVD on Amazon by a seller from Texas, great delivery service. The episodes are a great selection and special features are fun to watch as well with their intervals. The DVD is in widescreen since the release of 'Spills and Thirlls' in the states by Lionsgate which is more enjoyable to watch then fullscreen.
