Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Synopsis from FlyBy Promotions:
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 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), the group’s leader is a man of faith who prayerfully approaches his work with the goal of making a difference in people’s lives; 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.

I, in fact, hadn’t ever seen an episode of Signed, Sealed, Delivered before watching this sneak-peek provided by FlyBy Promotions. I remember watching the movie and loving it, but I hadn’t gotten around to watching the series. I was immediately intrigued by the show from the opening scenes. The interaction between Oliver and Shane alone has me wanting to get caught up in the series. It seems like I am missing their backstory a lot, in addition to the story behind Rita and Norman. I want to immediately like Kelly, but as the episode progresses my opinion of her changes. I watched this episode with my mother-in-law who has watched all of the series, and she mentioned that this episode wasn’t as funny as most of them are. However, if this is the case I will definitely be hooked on the rest of the series. I like a good tv series, especially a good funny show to help me relax and unwind. This episode focuses on the love story between Bobby and Ellie. It is so sweet! You are rooting for them before you even realize the twist between the letter and the story itself!
I want to know more about Oliver’s story. It is very obvious in the opening of the show that things aren’t going right where he is concerned. I’m also curious to know about the time period of the show. A PA system seems to be a huge change in the office, but a computer is used a lot. This weird mix of technology and time periods seems to occur in the show. This is very interesting to me also. Not to mention, the outfits! Oliver and Shane look very ’60’s and classic! While, Rita and Norman are dressed very quirky and suited to their personalities – a little nerdy even… They all seem to be well matched, but it doesn’t seem to be a problem for their little office.
Another quirk I noticed, was how do they interact with the rest of the office? I saw Shane and Oliver come through swinging doors into a hallway of the mail-sorting facility. Their office obviously doesn’t mesh with the rest of the “institutional” colors of the rest of the Post Office facility. Kelly seems to come into the office through a different door. Is that the street door?
Signed, Sealed, Delivered has captured my attention and I am eager to catch up with the series! I have adored “Oliver” in Hallmark movies anyway. His dress and demeanor help me to get sucked into the show. The quirks I noticed in watching this sneak-peek episode have just triggered my interest in the show and have not dampened my curiosity in the least!
After watching the sneak-peek episode, I signed up to receive this week’s bible study. The bible study was very thought provoking based on this week’s episode. I can’t wait to read the next 6 days of devotions. I like to find good devotions that really make you think about ideas and concepts, instead of just a devotion about reading the bible by itself with out incorporating concepts we are faced with daily. If you watch SSD please check out the bible study that I mentioned! I would hate to see these devotions come to an end!!
