My family (especially my 3 year old son) enjoyed this movie/special

My family (especially my 3 year old son) enjoyed this movie/special, particularly in HD from Amazon.It was a good way for us to learn about the origins of Thomas and how he got to the Island of Sodor. However, we didn't think the story was as good or as developed as some of the other Thomas movies. Still a great way for our family to spend an hour watching TV together.

... in the adult Thomas community somewhat akin to the Great Schism between Rome and Constantinople

There is a rift in the adult Thomas community somewhat akin to the Great Schism between Rome and Constantinople. There are the "purists" who got extremely bitter when HIT took over Thomas the Tank Engine, dumbed it down, and wrote insipid story lines. The rest of the community may not be so pleased with the changes but they still love and support Thomas and Friends, and love the series regardless of the changes.I find both sides silly because I kinda lost interest after Season 4 - when they stopped using the Railway Series for their stories.A fan told me about "The Adventure Begins" as if somehow it were different ...

A return to Season One

A good retelling of the original season one of nearly 2 decades ago, cleverly re-written to today's styles and with good CGI animation
