I figured no one would mind me ressurecting this thread. If you do, sorry!

Today my daughter watched Dinosaur Train. I think it has already been mentioned on this thread, but seriously, there are so many things that don't make sense about that show. First, whenever I hear the title, I imagine myself in the pitch meeting. "Well, sir, kids really like dinosaurs.... and, er, they really like trains. So, I say, let's make a show called Dinosaur Train! It can't lose!"

But the dinosaurs never eat each other. Is there some kind of magic or treaty that protects the kids from the dinosaurs they visit? And what exactly is the purpose of the train? Is it just to take kid dinosaurs on educational trips through time and space? And if it can go through time, why don't they go to the future where dinosaurs aren't extinct? And if they are so technologically advanced as to have train and time travel technology, why would they let a giant comet hit the earth?

What does the train run on, if not coal--which is from the dinosaur age?
