This week on Fans Complain About the Pettiest Things..!
Actually, that's not really fair. There is one rebuttal to this that I can completely understand, but let's provide the context first.
But going back to the "Chuggungton-esque" thing again, the problem with that wasn't the movements, it was... well, everything else. The settings felt like playsets (not in a good way), the characters felt dull (and done better by Thomas) and the stories were generally just "fine" (until around series 3 or 4). The movements just made the show more obnoxious and stupid, which is something I'm sure that everyone involved with Thomas' production want to steer clear of.
