After three attempts, Alec Baldwin, the narrator has put some life into the characters that was missing from his earlier efforts on "Cranky Bugs" and "Races and Rescues." As the editorial review suggests, this video is scarier and more suspenseful than earlier Thomas stories, so I don't consider it suitable for children under 5. "Spills and Chills" introduces a new character, Boulder, a big round rock with a pouty face that is probably the most clever Thomas character yet. "Spills and Chills and Other Thomas Thrills" would be a fine addition to your Thomas video library.

Thid is a good video. In this video, Alec Baldwin does a wonderful variety of voices. Even though some moments are sort of scary, it is a good video.
The story stops are:
Toby's Discovery
Rusty and the Boulder
Duncan Gets Spooked
Stepney Gets Lost
Haunted Henry
Sir Topham Hatt's Holiday
The Music Video:"Every Cloud has a Silver Lining"

I owned the video, and after it wore out I bought the DVD. My 5 and 2 year old kids love Thomas, especially the 2 year old. Kids with imagination will love these stories. Alec Baldwin does a great job narrating, and the primitive graphics allow the kids brains to bring the characters to life. If your kid is a whimp, sit with him when watching the Boulder episode, 2nd time thru they'll be OK.

Spills and Chills was great! It was funny when Peter Sam and Rusty spook Duncan and it's very fun to watch Boulder chase Rusty, Skarloey and Rheneas down the big hill. This video introduces 6 new characters: Bertram, Arry, Bert, Thumper, Boulder and Tigermauph the Bi-plane. It is a must-have for any Thomas fan. (On this video, my favourite episode is Toby's Discovery)The music video Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining is also on the video at the end.

When we recieved this DVD as a gift I was a bit apprehensive, then I watched it. My son's face lit up at the action and adventure that Thomas and friends provided. He ask me all the time to watch "boulder" video. Boulder is a character in the movie. Now when he goes to bed I ask him to tell me a story, and he tells me about boulder. I nearly cried at how cute he was telling me about the boulder on a cold night on the island of sodor. I recommend this for all parents of Thomas lovers.

This is the one Thomas & Friends video that we won't let our son watch anymore. It's very scary at points and it tended to stick in his imagination and memory. The runaway boulder was especially scary for him.

He is only 2, so we may let him watch this in another 2 years.

I frequently watch the Thomas series with my 5-year old granddaughter. The entire Thomas series is filled with valuable lessons for young minds and is entertaining even for adults. I love to watch my granddaughters reactions to the episodes.

A Kid's Review on December 22, 2004
Format: VHS Tape
With this video, it was obvious that the producers were trying to spice up the series by making it creepier and more action-packed, and the result was this collection of rather low-quality episodes.

I do enjoy these episodes, but some of them could be genuinely frightening to young children. Sheds explode, boulders race down railway lines, engines and freight cars plunge off high bridges into ravines, runaway trains crash through level crossings, a lost engine is nearly smeltered down...the list goes on. Plus not one of these episodes is a patch on "Percy's Ghostly Trick" and "Thomas, Percy and the Dragon," and the last episode, "Sir Topham Hatt's Holiday," isn't even scary, so why they put it on the video I have no idea. Same goes for the song, "Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining." The song "Night Train" would have more suitable.

Another low point of the video is Alec Baldwin's narration. In "Cranky Bugs" and "Races, Rescues and Runaways," he did a fairly good job despite his vocalisations for James and Gordon. But it was this video where his narration went downhill. He lacks emotion in several bits, and some of his voices could do with touching up a bit, particularly Duncan, who sounds plain weird, and Stepney, who sounds like your average Cockney or Australian person. He also changes Annie and Clarabel's voices at one point (changing voices was something which became a trend in his later episodes).

All in all, "Spills and Chills" isn't a bad Thomas video, but there are many better ones out there.
