Review: Signed, Sealed, Delivered: The Road Less Travelled

Signed, Sealed, Delivered: The Road Less Traveled

Premieres Sunday, February 11 at 7 PM ET

On Hallmark Movies & Mysteries

Signed, Sealed, Delivered: The Road Less Traveled finds the POstables venturing out of the Dead Letter Office and onto the open road. After discovering a disposable camera in the “lost and mangled” bin at the U.S.P.S., Oliver (Eric Mabius), Shane (Kristin Booth), Rita (Crystal Lowe) and Norman (Geoff Gustafson) load up the RV and hit the highway in search of, what appears to be, a child in distress.

Following clues from the camera’s photos, the POstables travel across the state to locate the boy before it is too late. Their search leads them to Rachel (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) and her young son Danny (Christian Covnery), who they have reason to believe are on the run.

While working together to find the missing boy, the POstables are forced to face some of their own difficult truths. Being locked in the close quarters of the RV only amplifies the situation and leads to some very honest conversations. When Oliver discovers that Shane is being less than forthcoming about a mysterious text message, he assures her that she doesn’t have to face anything alone anymore.

This revelation encourages Shane to move forward and seek closure for a painful event from her past. Meanwhile, Rita is overwhelmed with wedding plans, while Norman begins to question his own qualifications to be a husband and a father. With a little nudge from Oliver—and the wise words of his grandma Ardis—Norman is reminded that he must “face up to the scary”’ and be honest with Rita about his fears.

In true Martha Williamson fashion, The Road Less Traveled explores the importance of kindness, honesty, forgiveness and faith while making the viewer laugh and cry. Brilliantly written and executed, The Road Less Traveled is the best of the Signed, Sealed, Delivered series to date. Kristin Booth’s portrayal of Shane is phenomenal; her ability to run the entire gamut of emotions is incredible. Crystal Lowe pours her entire heart and soul into Rita, making her the most endearing character on television.

If you thought you loved Eric Mabius as Oliver before, prepare to be blown away. Geoff Gustafson’s flawless comedic timing and ability to break your heart with his sweet vulnerability are the perfect combination to bring dear Norman to life.

An impeccable blend of comedy, drama, mystery and romance, The Road Less Traveled, offers something for every Signed, Sealed, Delivered fan along with anyone who may be new to the series. The Road Less Traveled premieres on Sunday, February 11 at 7PM ET on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
