Signed, Sealed, Delivered Review

Hallmark has recently launched a new television series called Signed, Sealed, Delivered. This series is created and executive produced by  Martha Williamson, who also created Touched By An Angel.

About Signed, Sealed, Delivered

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.

This incredible series even incorporates scripture in its themes and in the conversations between characters. In FACT, The American Bible Society has built a bible study to go with the series.

My thoughts

I didn't know about this series until I watched the episode that aired on March 25, 2014. I usually enjoy watching Hallmark TV series or movies because they are uplifting and clean. Even though I didn't get a chance to see the previous episodes, I was still able to follow the Signed, Sealed, & Delivered

I think the premise of the series is really fun and exciting because the characters work hard on delivering mail that has been deemed undeliverable. I liked the concept that sometimes mail isn't delivered for a reason, but it gets delivered when it is needed to be.

The episode started out trying to where the undeliverable letter needed to be delivered. Through the work of Oliver, Rita, Norman, and Shane, they were able to find that the letter belonged to a woman named Ellie. Ellie wrote the letter when she was in high school to her future self. It was a letter about what Ellie wanted her life to be about which was to marry Bobby, the man she loves. Ellie and Bobby both have Down Syndrome. This couple faces many challenges, but is able to overcome them through their faith and through their study about marriage by searching the scriptures. The couple's journey inspires and touches the people around them especially their parents. You will have to watch the episode to learn how it ends!

I now plan on watching the previous episodes and watching this series each Sunday! I recommend giving this series a try because it will definitely brighten your day.
