Harsh rhetoric from top Chinese military thinkers has widespread public support. Here, a flotilla of Chinese fishing boats steams toward the East China Sea and a group of uninhabited islands that Japan and China both claim.
Chuggington Both want to rule the rails - but who's really got the edge to shunt the other into the sidings? Currently, Chuggington is fighting hard to shunt Thomas into the sidings.
However, the differences between the brands also set them apart. The worst thing about first impressions is that you only get to make one. Initially, I was very wary of Chuggington.
I had attempted to watch an episode of it previously, and had been left somewhat cold and unconvinced by it. However, this was back when Thomas and Friends was still running as a model animation production — and I was not inclined to CGI at all.
However, having never watched any episodes of Chuggington in full, I could not make an informed opinion and chose to believe that the series was somewhat inferior to Thomas, given what I had been hearing from other people. But when Series 15 of Thomas and Friends aired, and left a very bitter taste in the mouth of the faithful older fans, I knew the time was right to explore the other side of the fence.
Through BBC iPlayer, I downloaded the six episodes of Chuggington which were available at the time for that week long period, and began drafting up a review, convinced I was going to loathe what I saw I was surprised to say the least. The interesting thing to note is that Chuggington and Thomas share a similarity here.
Chuggington is the product of three former HIT employees who broke away to form their own company, Ludorum. As a brand new production, however, Chuggington lacks the intriguing backstory that Thomas does. He and the original stories are drawn from the love between three generations of a family.
A father passing on the love of steam and railways to his son, and in turn, the same story repeating itself, but with far more creative results when the Rev Awdry nursed his son through measles with three simple, but moral, railway stories to keep him amused.
The story progresses somewhat with the urging of a wife to seek publication, an editor who is so enthralled and encapsulated by the work being produced that he commissions a new book every year for nearly 30 years, the torch being picked up by the same son for whom the original stories were intended, and later grabs the attention of people in media who help maximise its full marketing potential on a global scale.
The main cast of voiceovers for Thomas are all experienced and well-versed vocal talents, capable of a wide array of voices that will be needed throughout the series, some have even diversified into splitting themselves between the UK and US dubs for the series.
These characters are essentially children, and therefore, can be related to as such. Both casts are hugely capable, they give their individual series life and are hugely talented people. However, it serves a totally different purpose to what Nitrogen are instructed to do by HIT Entertainment.
Whilst both series deal with talking trains, the design of the characters are very different. This is particularly true of the newer designs that Nitrogen Studios are responsible for under their own steam, such as Charlie, Hiro and Scruff, who are far more detailed in appearance than the model designs that have existed since the series began.
In Chuggington, there appears to be greater creative license taken deliberately. However, Chuggington does better Thomas and Friends in one area with its character designs — the human characters.Experiment M4: 2 Stroke, 4 Stroke Diesel Engines Abstract Introduction The aim of this experiment was to explore the engines testing methods and to find how the chemical energy in the fuel is converted into power and distributed throughout the system.
