S8 Ep.14: Edward the Great

THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE

EDWARD THE GREAT
Written by
Abi Grant

Directed by
Steve Asquith 

Air Date:
12/09/04

Plot:
Spencer arrived once again on Sodor. However he was his boastful self and had to take the Duke and Duchess to their summer house. Edward was chosen to take the flatbed of furniture. However the big engines such as Gordon and James think Edward is old, but the old engine was determined to win.

PRO:
- Moral: Slow and steady wins the race.

CON:
- Since when Spencer sound like a jet plane?
- Edward should be on a different track then Spencer. 

Despite the cons, this one is another great episode. I love the moral of this episode, it teaches kids that you don't have to be fast to win a race always go slow and steady a bit like the Tortoise and the Hare, which this episode is kind of based off. But there are the cons sadly, since when did Spencer sound like a jet plane, maybe that was the reason why the 'Steamies Vs. Diesels' DVD says he sounds like a diesel  haha. I would say that there is no bell, but I think it was in the cab. Plus most people might say that Spencer's basis don't have bells, but as I said in my reviews of 'The Biggest Present of All', their were many British locomotives that are fitted with bells and Spencer's counterpart, 'Dominion of Canada' is an example. The episode is great and I do enjoy it.

Rating: 4/5
