An overview of the series can be found on my episode 5 review.
I didn’t love this week’s episode. The first two minutes go for a slow, stylistic and dialogue free lead in and then the first words spoken (by a child) are “I’m bored” which only echoes my feelings as I watch a train snake its way along the tracks. The situation gets worse when they break into the know your train history and if they were going for cute with the spy using the kids, they really missed the mark. Mostly, this episode didn’t have any cleverness or intrigue to it. That doesn’t make it bad, as the story was perfectly functional, but there isn’t a lot to recommend the watch.
