Our Review
Of course we have featured the wonderful ever-so friendlyThomasand his lovely friends numerous times on L of E! In fact- too many to count! Thomas the Train has never let me down, and even though I have girls, they love this show dearly! In fact- I just bought an awesome Thomas the Train toy for them at Wal-Mart just the other day, but I have it put up for Christmas, so SHHH! I love that this set explains how it all began and how they met, which is often left out of many cartoons. I love that idea, and I found myself watching along with the kiddies, which is quite rare!  I like Percy the best! What about you? I also loved that on these 2 discs, they have managed to pack 20 exciting episodes! How good is that? THAT IS LESS THAN 1$ PER EPISODE! I'm sure it will more than come in handy to have when we go "off-the-grid" (just joking) and turn off our Direct TV. Still dreading that day, and it is coming very soon. It is in protest of high prices in case you are wondering. We are a longtime customer, but our bill is sky high, I have begged and pleaded with them to drop it, since new customers get a much better deal, but they won't.... So good-bye satellite TV.. :(
But it's OK, with wonderful discs like these laying around, I'm not sure we'll notice OR miss it too much!

Aspiring engineers will thrill at over 20 favorite Thomas & Friends® episodes on two DVD discs when Thomas & Friends: Engine Friends, comes to DVD, Digital Download and On Demand May 15, 2012 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment.
