THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT INFLUENCED FROM THE THOMAS AND FRIENDS FAN BASE
Thomas returns a lost pocket watch from an inspector
- The humour
- Moral: Return things to its proper owner
- Vocabulary expansion
- The little boy not getting punished for pulling the cable
I will say the title can be a bit misleading in a few minutes but it did give meaning in the latter of the episode. But I think it could've been given another title such as 'Thomas and the Watch' but I'm not downgrading the episode because of that. I love the episode, the humour from the Fat Controller was hilarious and did anyone notice the blinking sound when he was at the sheds? How the way he was playing paddle ball was hilarious too, especially the guard's silent reaction too. All in a bit of good fun.
I love how the writers are expanding the vocabulary each time. It's good for the target audience to be taught these words and the moral too about returning things is done before but it didn't do too much harm. There are kids out there who are new to the rule and its good for them to be taught that moral. My only nitpick I have with the episode is the little boy not being punished for his negligence for pulling the emergency cable. In 'Thomas and The Emergency Cable', the bird watcher was given a good scolding from the Fat Controller after what he'd done. In the end it's a good episode.
