S9 Ep.1: Percy and The Oil Painting

2005 marks the 60th anniversary of the Railway Series and so with celebrations lining up such as the unsuccessful Hatfield House celebration, which was to be the biggest event in the calendar, the release of 'Calling All Engines!' which was a nice way to celebrate the year and the 9th series of Thomas the Tank Engine or Thomas & Friends. So is it a success or a flop? Let's find out, but first:

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

PERCY AND THE OIL PAINTING
Written by
Abi Grant

Directed by
Steve Asquith 

Air Date:
4/09/05

Plot:
Percy was given the job to bring a famous painter and show him around the island to show him the spirit of Sodor. However, the artist didn't like the locations that Percy brought him too and that made him cross until the painter decided to paint Percy. 

PRO:
- Nice to see Percy passionate about the island
- The painting 

CON:
- All the stuff that the artist was carrying would never fit in Percy's cab.


Well, we come to the first episode of the ninth series and it was an alright episode. Percy's passion about the island is nice to see and it shows that he's not afraid to speak his mind, as the artist said it in the episode. I also like the painting, whoever did that did an exquisite job. Though I do have to say, a brake and vent van would be good to take, visually as the stuff that the artist was carrying is too much for Percy's cab. But the episode is alright and its a bit enjoyable. 

 Rating: 3/5
