Mr. Coffey Pot: Here we are folks! I made a short video of my special VIP trip to see 'Thomas & Friends: Digs and Discoveries' at Drayton Manor in 4K! youtu.be/YFmxHmKUouw Jul 10, 2019 19:24:05 GMT
DmayExpress: Happy Birthday ! Jul 12, 2019 7:08:59 GMT
Cowcatchers and Sideplates: www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPLBniWLLLY new episode of my series, Consider The Following :) Jul 12, 2019 17:51:12 GMT
dtchapman1: So, Thunderbirds are go has finished the second third of season 3. So when will the final part come out? 2021 or 2065? Jul 13, 2019 7:44:53 GMT
OJ: I hear the remaining episodes are back in the new year. It feels like it's only just come back and I wish we had seen the remaining series 2 now. That's three lots of hiatuses. Jul 15, 2019 16:17:21 GMT
OJ: Ducktales did the same thing. Looks like it's the norm now. I'm beginning to dislike these series breaks. We the viewers would like to see a series at once without breaks. I thought this one of the reasons why Thomas was loosing to Paw Patrol. Jul 15, 2019 16:19:07 GMT
dtchapman1: I think the reason why it felt like it only just came back is that, in essence we had a 4 parter episode. The run time for them is almost the same as all the movie's. Essentually we have had only 6 eisodes Jul 15, 2019 16:56:51 GMT
dtchapman1: Ducktales has done something similar yes, but the breaks are nowhere near as spaced out as Thunderbirds are go. The space between the Ducktales episodes was (excluding the random episode) 127 days. Thunderbirds are go episodes was 357 days. Jul 15, 2019 17:03:20 GMT
dtchapman1: *UPDATE* CITV has released a promo and it does contain a few seconds of the last 3rd. It also let's us look at the new Zero-X that they built. It looks like they purt TB2 and TB3 in a closet and that is the result of it. Jul 15, 2019 21:16:33 GMT
dtchapman1: If may even have TB5 stuck on it later on. That has to be a reference to Thunderbirds 2086. It just has to be. Jul 15, 2019 21:17:30 GMT *
OJ: I wonder if Thunderbirds are Go is going to get a series 4. I hope it does but this scheduling has been a problem I feel. Jul 16, 2019 14:34:46 GMT
dtchapman1: I genually believe that Season 4 is already in the works, but ITV have not made it public. If you think about it, the production team has been extremly secrative when it comes spoilers. Have we ever had a screen shot come out? A post by the voice actors? Jul 16, 2019 20:10:05 GMT *
dtchapman1: The trailer for the second third only came out 1 month before it aired and we only found out about Lee Majors playing Jeff Tracy 10 days before the airing. Jul 16, 2019 20:14:16 GMT
dtchapman1: I'm posotive it has been confirmed. They just won't release it to the public until season 3 has finnished. Jul 16, 2019 20:14:19 GMT *
Madness: I have a new audio adaptation story that will be premiering on YouTube tomorrow. I hope you can all be there to watch it :D . www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKzv1mcnd-s Jul 17, 2019 11:43:31 GMT
Fox: A warm welcome to Summer on SiF - and with it, the incoming ERS Competition 2019! A pre-announce post has been placed in the ERS Discussion forum, and the competition will go live as of Friday 26th July 2019. Don't be tardy, adventurers! Jul 18, 2019 0:09:50 GMT
Kat: Looking forward to it! Can't wait to hear this year's theme. I fully intend on participating this time around. I think the last time I did was a few years ago, but I've been itching to stretch those creative muscles. Jul 18, 2019 4:36:00 GMT
OJ: Good luck to those who enter the ERS competition. I look forward to seeing the winning entry. Jul 18, 2019 15:11:47 GMT
OJ: It's comic con this weekend and Ducktales fans might want to look out for news. Last year character who would be appearing in series 2 were revealed so I'm guessing they might reveal characters who'll be appearing in upcoming episodes. Jul 18, 2019 15:12:54 GMT
OJ: I'd be very surprised if Gosalyn WASN'T among those characters revealed. Jul 18, 2019 15:13:42 GMT
