THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
THOMAS AND THE SPACESHIP
Percy had a loose valve in his cylinder and so Thomas takes him to Tidmouth sheds. In the night sky he saw, what he presumed to be, a spaceship! But it turns out it was someone else.
- Realistic moment: Thomas haul six mail vans
- Gordon hauling the mail
- The airport at night
- Three strikes
The episode is not as bad as what I thought, though I don't find it as a favourite. But I do like it how Thomas was hauling about six mail vans, that is amazing! Along with Gordon hauling the mail trucks too. Some fans might find this bad for Gordon as he doesn't like pulling trucks, but the Flying Scotsman, a locomotive that Awdry had based off for Gordon, even though in fiction an A0, has pulled a parcel train after the second world war, I remember seeing an archival picture of the locomotive in a booklet from the National Railway Museum. Many other express locomotives hauling parcel trains too, like the Peppercorn A1's and the A4's as well.
Aside from that, I also love the airport at night with the fog, the lights made it look wonderful. But, their is the usual three strikes though not as boring and cringe worthy as the CGI stories. But there a few repetitive lines from the narrator.
