S9 Ep.2: Thomas and The Rainbow

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

THOMAS AND THE RAINBOW
Written by
Abi Grant

Directed by
Steve Asquith 

Air Date:
4/09/05

Plot:
After a storm, the Fat Controller had sent Thomas to take the workmen to fix the telegraph poles. However Thomas spotted a rainbow in the sky and wanted to to catch it. But what Thomas didn't know is that a telegraph pole was blocking the line and derailed him! 

PRO:
- Moral: Friends are special

CON:
- Thomas would know what a rainbow is!
- Wouldn't there be technicians on the island?
- Nothing is said about the workmen. 

A bad episode, with all the rain and storm they have on the Island to think Thomas knows what a rainbow is, plus why would the workmen be at the docks, surely there are technicians on the island as well and not from the mainland. Also, there was not even one mention of workmen being injured after the crash. The episode is a bit cheesy at the end in my opinion about friends, but it adds a nice moral too saying that friends are special. But its still a bad episode and not worth the watch and this episode is  really more suited to the younger audiences as intended. 

Rating: 1/5
