Movie Reviews

We WILL get this...
S. Vasquez | Tri State USA (NY/NJ/CT) | 12/22/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

""We" are watching this series as it comes on TV now and have seen all the episodes to date (not in order): high speed Acela, Ice cold produce train, Coal train, Amtrak sleeper train, steam train... did I miss any?

We have a train crazed 5 year old who makes us watch them over and over on our DVR until the next new episode runs and he then fixates on that one... We like the host Matt - I describe him as an adorable train geek - and as a parent I dont find him annoying like some video narrator/hosts can be (after you have to listen to the same video 100 times with you child) and the sound bites my 5 year old are picking up from him are more funny than anything ("full speed and full throttle" is one...)

The series is a good blend of info on the featured train and tangents into related subjects (how do you clean out a steam engines boiler? where do old freezer car box cars go to die and be recycled?...) If this video set was out now we would immeadiatley have bought it for Christmas (and to free up the space on our DVR) or told our childs uncles and such to get it for him for a present!"
Exreme Trains Finally A Documentary That Is Interesting
Michael N. Wilmot | USA | 12/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This documentary about massive trains and their destinations has been one of the most interesting series on the TV since Tony Robinson's Worst Jobs in History. Matt Brown is a train man: a conductor on a state of Maine rail line . He talks to the camera like he is talking to all of us as he rides the train or performs the many jobs that are needed to get the train to the Job.
I have seen all of the shows to date and I can't wait to collect all of these on DVD . Well worth the wait .Coming is the Ringling Brothers Circus Train .Tonight is the Steam Train episode.
Also what about the blue CSX Passenger train that pulls through Atlanta ? It must have at least 17 coaches . Is it a passenger train or a moving university ? I don't know . It might be an idea for a future episode."
Wonderful for kids and their parents

"My son and I watched this over and over again when it was playing on TV -- and yes I do have it on order.

This is a nice set of DVDs on trains for the common person. Some people comment that Matt Brown appears obnoxious... I think his enthusiasm shows through.

Many other train shows only depict old, grainy outdoor images of trains going past on the screen. What I liked about this show was that it took the viewer behind the scenes, and put the trains in context of something bigger. And they have a good selection, including "steamies" and the Acela express that travels from Washington DC to Boston. There's even a circus train.

If you or your kid like trains, this is a great buy. If you're a very serious train enthusiast looking for detailed specifics of locomotive make and model, this show is probably not for you."
"I'm obsessed with trains!"

"My older son and my husband are addicted to this series. Hopefully there will be a second season. For those of you who are not familiar with this show...It is a must for train lovers and kids will relate to the host and even want to meet him and hang out with him. I don't care much for trains, but it was interesting (the first few times I sat through it)! My son and husband have watched the episodes over and over and over again!"
