  1. Thomas with the express eh? Could be good. Thomas' Train anyone? :)

    1. I just thinking will Thomas just pull Annie and Clarabel instead?

    2. I'm guessing that if Thomas just pulled Annie and Clarabel, the title would have no meaning as they aren't express coaches.

  2. The snowman said to Henry: 'Happy Birthday!' XD

    But anyway, the plots sound OK. I actually like the idea of Thomas taking the important visitors. I hope they show him pulling the express coaches then it'll be like old times. The Monster of Brendam episode sounds quite interesting too.

  3. These sound worse than I thought. Percy and the Monster of Brendam sounds like a three strikes episodes already...

    Although Thomas pulling the express sounds pretty good. I just hope it's not too similar to Thomas' Train

    1. Maybe so. Though we do have to accept what these episodes will bring. All we can do is just shut our eyes, wait and it will be over.

    2. I'll be watching, and I'll be throwing a party when it's over, then we might see some positive changes in the writing department. But also be quite unhappy with the departure of Nitrogen.

      I'll be doing the same after Blue Mountain Mystery.

  4. Here's how i belive PATMOB will go: Percy fids two tall towers which he thinks is the monster,only to find that he is worng,and the last tower is cranky.
    simple. They all sound bad, expet, to some extent, Express Coming Through - a thomas' train-like episode woudn't be too bad, i just hope it's not too like it

  5. An engine... pretending to be a SnowMAN? To put it in the words of Bert... "Now I've seen everything..."
