THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
EDWARD AND THE MAIL
Percy is at the repair yards and so Edward is to take the mail. But Edward had never taken the mail before and he didn't know who to deliver too.
- Edward hasn't taken the mail before and that's half the good thing of the story.
- Edward should know how to take the mail
- The driver could easily help out with Edward's delivery problem.
The episode is OK, though I didn't bother watching the episode, but I know about the episode off by heart. I do like it how they chose Edward in the first part of the story. In the books and TV series, we never see him pulling the mail once, but despite that, it was stupid that they said Edward doesn't know where to deliver the mail. You think that being on the railway for many years, Edward should know about the mail route by now and even though that the writers at the time are more focus on fantasy then reality, since that Thomas the Tank Engine in the books and the early TV series focus on realism on the railways, the driver could easily help out with Edward's delivery problem.
I don't mind the episode, it is not horrible, but it needed some tweaking.
