Signed, Sealed, Delivered Original Series On Hallmark Channel

Disclosure of material connection- I was provided a sneak peek at episode 8 of Signed, Sealed, Delivered  via FlyBy Promotions in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

About the series (from the show's website)-

The new original series "Signed, Sealed, Delivered" is a wonderful combination of romance, comedy and drama that follows the lives of four postal detectives who transform themselves into a team of detectives to track down intended recipients of undeliverable mail. Their missions take them out of the office and into an unpredictable world where redirected letters and packages can save lives, solve crimes, reunite old loves and change futures by arriving late but somehow always on time. The team includes charming Oliver O’Toole (Eric Mabius), a genius postal detective and the group’s leader; new team member, Shane McInerney (Kristin Booth), a technophile who brings 21st century sensibility to the group; free-spirited, “girl next door” Rita Haywith (Crystal Lowe) who has a photographic memory; and lovable Norman Dorman (Geoff Gustafson), a master in conventional research methods.

My thoughts-

I was so excited at the opportunity to get to view the latest episode of Signed, Sealed, Delivered. I have heard such great things about this show, that I wanted to see what it was all about. I do want to go back and watch all of the previous episodes, but I felt like this is the type of show you could catch an show you can catch and episode of and not have to had to seen all of the episodes that came before it. Still, catching this episode toward the end of the season makes me want to go back and learn more about these characters I have just met. I want to know more about their personalities and nuances and to me that is a sign of good writing.

Getting into the episode, set to air tomorrow night, the postal detectives come across a letter that has been lost for ten years, written by a woman on her death bed with some pretty heavy information for her husband. There are a couple of flashback scenes that, along with her letter, explain some pretty tough circumstances to her husband. One of the flashbacks is heartbreaking, especially given the information in the letter. There is a tough subject matter at the heart of this episode, but it is handled very well. It is portrayed in a way that is not too graphic and that could open up the line of communication with your kids about this topic if you are watching this show as a family. I thought that the story flowed nicely and that the actor's all did a great job portraying their roles and acting off of each other. I really liked that Signed, Sealed, Delivered is the kind of show that is full of suspense suspense, mixed with a touch of romance and that is also a feel good kind of thing to watch.
