MrMilkDuctor: Woah thanks guys for the response for the favorite AEG episode discussion the reason why I asked was trying to watch a full AEG episode so just wanted to know your guys thoughts/opinions :) Oct 21, 2021 14:04:39 GMT *
RichardSudrian: So, yesterday I posted my first set of stories for my series. Instead of a standalone story like the rest, this time around I did a four-story volume. You can see it here: sodorislandforums.com/thread/8687/tsrs-volume-tales-tiny-engine Oct 21, 2021 15:20:25 GMT
Inkwright: First day writing the Mavian Scandal film! :D Oct 21, 2021 18:49:30 GMT *
Inkwright: Oh, boy, here's a question for you all...Favorite (or cutest) female character in Thomas? Definitely Rosie for me. Oct 22, 2021 16:50:41 GMT *
WaltWiz1901: My favourite female characters are Daisy, Mavis, Emily, and Marion. Oct 23, 2021 4:29:01 GMT
The Thomas Cynic: Mine's Mavis - she has a subtle but great character arc right from Season 3 to Season 18. Oct 23, 2021 5:31:46 GMT
GeebMachine: For me, my favorite female character would have to be Ashima. Not only does she elicit a certain beauty, but she is very friendly and supportive. IMO, she's pure. Oct 23, 2021 5:38:35 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Mine Is Lady her paint job looks really nice she didn’t really have many appearances but she looked cute . Oct 23, 2021 7:56:40 GMT
Nicholas: There's a lot of focus on female characters being 'cute' or beautiful going hand in hand with how good a character they are. Curious perceptions of what validates popularity and favourability for females, to me! There are many other traits to appreciate. Oct 23, 2021 13:46:21 GMT *
Inkwright: If only Lady had appeared more! Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Ashima is something just pure. Oct 23, 2021 14:27:50 GMT
The Thomas Cynic: Absolutely agreed, Nicholas. People get mad at writers (I'm mostly talking outside of Thomas here lol) when they make girls too stereotypically feminine, and they also get mad when they try and make them a stereotypically "strong" female character. Oct 23, 2021 19:37:06 GMT
whosgeoffrey: I think that there's a general feeling in TV and film writing today that it one writes a female character (or a character in any other minority) that is intended to have major character flaws or is supposed to be disliked, then the audience is sexist — 1/2 Oct 25, 2021 15:23:51 GMT
whosgeoffrey: — or racist or homophobic or bigoted in some other way for disliking said character. I think Thomas and BWBA especially are extreme examples of this — the writers didn't want to write harmful characters but swung so violently in the other direction — 2/? Oct 25, 2021 15:26:59 GMT
whosgeoffrey: — that the female characters are flat and uninteresting. Personally I am of the opinion that representation of oppressed minorities on TV can not be truly authentic unless said minorities can be any sort of character: hero or villain or neither. Oct 25, 2021 15:29:01 GMT
OJ: Rebecca had a goof law to begin with but it felt like it got suddenly taken away. Daisy has always been an entertaining character and so has Marion. Oct 25, 2021 18:04:43 GMT
Inkwright: The first Thomas episode I ever saw in my life will be 30 years old on Friday...Man, do I love Trust Thomas Oct 25, 2021 18:19:23 GMT
wildnorwester: The series really has been going for a while, hasn't it? Oct 25, 2021 19:38:07 GMT
Inkwright: Yes indeed. I'm glad this series is living in my heart stronger than ever this year, and Trust Thomas is a contributing factor to that. :'( :) Oct 25, 2021 19:40:46 GMT
Madness: A goof law? What do you mean by that ? Oct 26, 2021 0:09:27 GMT
Inkwright: I bet he means that she started with a typical clumsy trope. Oct 26, 2021 0:50:39 GMT
