Bachmann can't make Splatter and Dodge, due to their lack of relevance; being obscure characters.

The mainland diesels (like Ulli) in the CGI series have no merchandise whatsoever. No promotion, or marketing.
Hence why I didn't even mention them

So, I'm trying to find complete seasons of the show.  They don't appear to be available at the moment on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon at least not without a rental fee or anything.

And unfortunately we never got any full season releases here in the US.  Am I right in guessing my best option is the complete series releases from the U.K.?

And will the U.K. dvds typically play on most modern PCs?  Or would I need to get a special DVD player that plays region 2 discs?

The US only got the first season on DVD which is the Early Years.  Interestingly they used the UK versions of the episodes instead of the US narrations.



Some UK DVDs can work on US DVD players if you set region mode to "international".  My old DVD player had this option for the season 2 DVD I have which sadly had to be replaced by a new one that no longer has that option.  Not sure how it would work with PCs but a friend of mine who owned the first four seasons on DVD would watch them on a portable DVD player that supported region 2 discs.

Thanks for the reply!  I did order the first 6 seasons, and I'll see what I need to do to view them once they're here.

I also read that PCs should have a setting to change region on the disc drives.  So I'll see if that works.

I still find it disappointing that the US has only gotten season 1 completely on DVD. I would definitely purchase S2-6 on DVD on the spot to get the George Carlin and Alec Baldwin dubbed versions of those episodes in production order and higher quality.

I remember when I bought the 1st season of Thomas. I was so excited and worried that I was to old getting the same episodes on DVD.

I read something somewhere online a few months ago after the 1st season came out there were coming out with season 2 the next year. Sadly it never happened.

I love the voice narration of Ringo Starr and George Carlin. To bad the newer rerelease versions had the current narrator. He didn't have the feel or voice to really separate the characters. Half the time it sounds one sided.

Got my first season today (UK release).  Great quality and love the narration!  Just wondering out of curiosity, do they start calling The Fat Controller, Sir Topham Hatt at some point in the series?  Or is he still Fat Controller even into the CGI years?  Just interesting differences from the U.S. versions I'm use to.  I think I prefer the U.K. ones now!
