THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
NOT SO SLOW COACHES
Paul Larson & Laura Beaumont
Robert Anderson (Arc)
Ian McCue and Halim Jabbour (HIT)
Thomas, being his usual cheeky self, was teasing Annie and Clarabel's patience about going fast and slow. But Thomas was late for the quarry and left Annie and Clarabel at the shunting yard. Caitlin was there as well as her coupling was loosing some bolts and have to go to the steam works and left her coaches there as well. When she returned, Charlie accidentally shunted the two coaches towards her train.
- Charlie actually doing work
- The funny lines from Annie and Clarabel
- The variety of angles at Dryaw station
-Mavis saying 'trucks' in the UK dub
This episode reminds me of 'Thomas and Gordon'. Except Annie and Clarabel are the ones behind an express engine and they added Thomas to chase after them. Paul Larson and Laura Beaumont aren't the best writers but they seem to be good at episodes that involve some dramatic moments like Hiro and Diesel in 'No More Mr. Nice Engine'. I love it that they made Charlie do work like in the previous season, despite his jokes can be a bit tasteless in humour for some older fans. However the line from Mavis (Teresa Gallagher) sounds very unnatural when she says 'trucks' whereas in the US dub she says the line more naturally while the UK dub sounds a bit out of place. The lines from Annie and Clarabel added great humour as well, despite it being a dramatic moment for them and I love the more addition of angles over Dryaw station, which seems to add more trees since 'Thomas' Shortcut' had less. I hardly don't see anything wrong with this episode and I enjoyed it very much.
