I can see why they rejected it. Big Grin

Shada is cut like a movie, with no cliffhangers.
Totally bizarre decision. What kind of idiot tries to "complete" Shada and then presents it in an erroneous format?  Rolling Eyes

Looks like the JNT version will stay the definitive one....

I can't believe after all this time they still don't seem to know how to finish Shada properly!

However the interview with Tom was nice to read. I liked his comments on the students taking the piss out of him for his attempts at punting down the cam! His grin at being back in the role of his lifetime seemed genuine.

Just finished watching it. Great. So much better than the new series. Still got the extras disc to go!

Picked up the Blu ray of the new part-animated Shada last week and watched it last night. I was a little wary, as I love the 'original' Tom-narrated Shada from the early-90s and feared I might not like this version as much. However, for the most part, that didn't happen. There are a few quibbles, like the 'old Tom' ending, which seems pretty random and WTH, and the decision to present it as a movie when there seems zero reason not to present it in the intended episodic format is also fairly bizarre. The new version is obviously quite a lot longer, which makes the pace inevitably not quite as zippy as the narrated version... and yet, for that and my minor quibbles, I still absolutely loved it. Shada is a lovely story no matter how it's presented, and still one of my favourites. I also enjoyed the animation more than Power - whether it's actually better, or just easier to take when mixed with live-action, or better in colour or more suited to this style of story is debatable, but I still did. I would very much like to see more like this - how about animating some BFs like the Tom/Lalla Romance of Crime, or a 'Lost Story' like The Nightmare Fair?

Very happy with this, though. Big Grin
