THESE ARE SOLEY MY OWN OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
JAMES IN THE DARK
Written by Mark Robertson
Directed by Greg Tiernan
Produced by Nicole Stinn
Air Date (UK):
James refuses to wear an old fashioned head lamp at night and picks up Farmer McColl, Farmer Trotter, and their animals instead of Alicia Botti.
- The night sky was animated perfect and was looking pretty too.
- James should be fitted with a lamp at all time.
- James should know that a lamp will help him and his crew to see things at night
- Why did James mistaken engines like Thomas and Edward as Henry and Percy, sure it may be dark, but, surely the voice sounded familiar.
- The station need to leave their lights on when trains are coming, to know that they're in service.
Lamps are an important safety feature to an engine at all times. They're there for the engine and its crew to see things at night like workmen or stray animals on the line. Stations should also keep their lights on too, to know that they are in active service, as mentioned in 'North Eastern Steam' by DoctorTankEngine in Episode 1 when the 'Milk Train' arrived at the station that the lights are on. However, despite the problems this episode has, this is much better then the season opener. The only pro I give for this episode is stunning animation set at night and I have to say, I love the watermill at night. This episode is good, but do need some tweaking.
