Inkwright: Yeah. It's terrifying. Oct 11, 2021 21:12:42 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: The only time where I think sir Topham hatt was treated like boss someone not to mess with was in sodor lost treasure Oct 11, 2021 21:29:14 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Am having a feeling the reason why they made so goofy was because of the media making him like a bad controller after all the Henry controversy Oct 11, 2021 21:31:29 GMT
OJ: I never liked TFC being a joke character either. In Buckled Tracks and Bumpy Trucks the public don't take him seriously. That's bad as he's supposed to be in charge of the railway and he's also a father figure to the engines. Oct 11, 2021 23:10:10 GMT
OJ: The milkshake scene in Marvelous Machinery was a really bad Fat Controller moment too. He's alsomt turned into Homer Simpson. Oct 11, 2021 23:10:57 GMT
waltwiz1901: (Re: media controversy) Could be. While I will admit to still liking Brenner-era Thomas, the way some of the characters are handled, especially the controller, is really all-over-the-place Oct 12, 2021 1:02:39 GMT *
MrMilkDuctor: You can’t also put all the blame on Brenner I think he would’ve made the era even more better if just Mattel wasn’t on his ears all the time constantly changing plans/script Oct 12, 2021 3:26:59 GMT *
DmayExpress: Plaque unveiled in Kings Norton marking the birthplace of Thomas the Tank Engine stories: www.itv.com/news/central/2021-10-11/plaque-unveiled-marking-the-birthplace-of-thomas-the-tank-engine-stories Oct 12, 2021 3:27:42 GMT
The Thomas Cynic: (Re: Brenner) Yes, MrMilkDuctor, but at the same time you can't put all the blame on Mattel. As soon as something happens in the show we don't like, we can't just assume Mattel is behind it and did it to spite us or something. Oct 12, 2021 6:49:21 GMT
Nicholas: Though the Brenner era didn't do wonders for TFC, I'd argue Brenner himself was careful to make the comedy around him incidental and not through his own buffoonery, such as the visual comedy of the inspector trying to take the slip of paper from him in JBS Oct 12, 2021 11:11:23 GMT *
Nicholas: The main exception to that, somewhat unusually, though, would be in The Adventure Begins, which is Brenner-penned but still sees TFC mishandling telephones and falling about quite a bit. :P Oct 12, 2021 11:12:10 GMT *
Inkwright: Three more days to complete this poll sodorislandforums.com/thread/8671/character-story-vote?page=1&scrollTo=393178 Oct 12, 2021 13:15:15 GMT
Inkwright: We've gotta break that tie lol Oct 13, 2021 15:45:16 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: Am still voting for Donald and Douglas ::) Oct 14, 2021 0:06:22 GMT *
MrMilkDuctor: This is so weird to say favorite AEG episode so far? Oct 14, 2021 9:41:28 GMT
MrMilkDuctor: I guess favorite is a strong word there a decent at best an episode that doesn’t wanna make you pull your eyes out :) Oct 14, 2021 10:50:05 GMT *
Inkwright: I keep rewatching A Thomas Promise for some unknown cause Oct 14, 2021 17:30:37 GMT
waltwiz1901: If I was forced to pick one out of the four I've seen, "Kana Goes Slow" would've been mine Oct 14, 2021 19:29:19 GMT
aspiegurl: I read a quote about if you were near an on steam engine because of the heat of the boiler and the sounds of it, "you'd swear it was alive." Is it different for us because of our show? Like I wonder if I'd need A Day Out With Thomas one to feel the effect. Oct 15, 2021 5:02:25 GMT
Inkwright: Watch the episode Fish from Season 4 and you'll see how they were able to bring steam engines to life in a realistic and stunning way. Oct 15, 2021 14:48:47 GMT
