A Tale of a Mouse
« on: March 01, 2015, 09:31:04 AM »
Yes, this episode may also be a filler. But it has the story of Rowsby Woof and another great adventure on the Nuthanger Farm. Playing off Duster against Tabitha was a great and El-ahrairah worthy trick by the rabbits.

This episode simply breathes the Watership Down spirit, and that makes it so enjoyable.

Had an urge to watch the next episode today!  :dandelion

I actually didn't mind this episode. Granted, not too much happens, but sometimes that's nice to have, especially after all the action prior to this. It was interesting to see a new ''El-Arah'' story and in the different style. Not sure what was going on with the beginning of the episode, though; it didn't seem to have any explanation - just a few past and present clips with a rock song over the top! Was it supposed to show that time was passing? I didn't get that.

I was surprised that Primrose already has children. Things go by pretty quickly in this series! And yet it is nice to get all the new stories to give some of the characters more development, hear more El-Ahrairah stories and games such as Bobstones, which of course the film had no time to tell us about.

'It must be dreadful to be so thick.' Oooh - that's nasty, Fiver! That quote did amuse me. :P  :fiver3

Anyway, this episode gave me more positivity about the series again and I will hopefully get watching the next episode soon.  :fiver

... And now I know what this is about:  :el-ahrairah

...... And why has 'Duster' got such long whiskers?

Very good review Meadow Rabbit. The adventure on the farm was simple, but entertaining to watch, it's perfect for quiet rabbits from Watership Down. In the end they managed to take some vegetables. Although it is assumed that the chapter should focus a little more on the mouse hannah, but it is ok x3     :hannah
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Oh yes, I forgot to add that! It wasn't really much of a tale of the mouse! :P
