  2. I wouldn't say Duck starred in the episodes. He hardly appeared to be honest. But I was really happy that he did return and his personality hadn't changed a bit.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I would have to say Butch. After 10 seasons since his debut of doing really nothing. He finally got his own story.

  4. I Hope HiT will bring back Jack and the Pack, at least in 5 Episodes.

  5. As for what Series is underrated, I voted for Season 12. I really liked that season and I think it seriously is underrated. I loved the CGI/models mix and there were some very good episodes and featured a large cast!

    ReplyDelete
  6. For what is currently the current poll, "WOULD YOU WANT 'THE RAILWAY SERIES' TO RETURN FOR ANOTHER BOOK OUTING?" I put yes because 2015 will mark Thomas' 100th birthday, (according to the TTTE Wiki) and I hope that a book is written that year to acknowledge it.

  7. I hope you bring back the BMM survey in a couple of weeks when it's released in the US!
