THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
THOMAS AND SKARLOEY'S BIG DAY OUT
Skarloey was in need of repairs and so Thomas took him to the works. Along the way Thomas showed the narrow gauge engine the sites of the island.
- Nice to see the S4 models again
- The route to the 'Fitter's yards' is inaccurate.
This episode is alright, but I don't find great or anything. It was nice to the see the S4 model of Skarloey again. But the story was in three strikes, there were repetiviness lines from Skarloey saying 'It's really nice but we have _______ in the mountains', which gets annoying. Plus, if you know the RWS, the route to the fitters yards is wrong. Skarloey actually lives near by the works so why can't Thomas just transfer him there from the wharf. I know the series don't reflect from the RWS anymore, but it would be nice to see the show following its accurate route of the island. In the end, I don't find this to be the best, but it's alright in the end.
Despite the downgraded episodes, this season is just a tiny improvement towards its last season. There were the good ones and the bad ones. I haven't seen the US narration for this season but Michael Angelis does sound like he'll make you go to sleep, not that I'm hating it, I find him a very underrated british actor and a great storyteller, but he seems less enthused from this season, but he is getting old of course.
The sets were amazing, the Wharf and the Maritime museum especially. The wharf shows some industry of the Island instead of repeat after repeat of trees and fields. In the end S10 may not be perfect, it was an OK season. Stay tuned for S11 reviews.
